Provide Feedback Drone Technology and Data Analysis Drones are now becoming mature technology for data collection in agriculture, natural resources management, mining, facilities management, emergency response, and other fields. Working with drone data, however, is a non-trivial affair because it requires a special suite of knowledge and skills related to remote sensing, photogrammetry, spatial data management, spatial analysis, mapping, specialized equipment, and regulatory considerations. This introductory 4-hour workshop will provide an overview of drone technology and practical considerations for its applications, followed by a hands-on...

Provide Feedback How to Save the World in 10 Steps How to use data and behavior-change techniques to gamify smart cities and change the world. You may have heard the saying, “If you can’t measure it, it probably doesn’t exist.” This talk is about measuring what we want to change and getting really good at changing it. Simply disclosing data has enormous potential to catalyze change. We will peek into the surge in new data being collected in smart cities by satellites, drones and sensors, and the exciting start ups using this data for environmental change. We will ask the questions “What are you... How to Save the World in 10 Steps My Schedule Please sign in to add a session to your schedule.

An Intro to Event-Driven Serverless Architecture on AWS The network is the computer, especially when your data is already in the Cloud. This workshop will show how, without concern for the details of servers and storage, you can use small amounts of code to run big geospatial batch jobs with help from GDAL, Amazon Lambda and S3. Participants will need AWS accounts, know how to create an S3 bucket and upload data to it. Most of the session will be using the AWS Command Line Interface and little bit of Bash on a Linux EC2 instance. Simple is Better.
