Digital Elevation Models Derived from Drones

Pix4D makes software solutions for GIS progessionals. One of the solutions is the ability to generate 3D digital elevation models. This presentation will cover how a DEM can be exported as either a digital surface model (DSM) or digital terrian model (DTM). It will also cover how contour lines can be derived to represent the true bare-earth topography of a terrain. A demonstration will presented to showcase best practices for leveraging these 3D elevation products in your GIS workflow.

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.

Esri's Local Government Information Model: Thinking Through Municipal GIS

Esri's Local Government Information Model (LGIM) is offered by Esri as a general solution to Municipal GIS. If a Municipality has already bought into the Esri ecosystem, there is no additional licensing needed. Farallon has implemented the LGIM for multiple municipalities and has experienced the quirks and intricacies in deployment.

Extending QGIS

Any GIS becomes more useful when you can connect it to other programs and data services.  In this workshop, you will learn how to connect QGIS to spatial databases, work with data from data services, use QGIS in conjunction with programming languages like R and Python, use plugins, and work with algorithms and processing tools from other GIS programs from the Processing Toolbox.  We’ll also specifically address how to get help and resources for learning on your own.  We recommend that participants have intermediate-level experience (equivalent of an introductory college course) with GIS con

From hours to seconds: Multi-dimensional indexing with GeoWave and HBase

Participants in this workshop will learn how to use GeoWave’s multidimensional indexing capabilities to preserve spatial and spatial-temporal locality in a distributed key value store. Each participant will set up a test cluster on his or her own machine using the GeoWave RPMs and Docker. We will then use the GeoWave command line functionality to ingest and analyze both vector and raster data. The participants will also use our GeoWave Geoserver plugins to render their data.

GeoTuple: a Multi-scale Geo-Analytics Framework

Introduction
This presentation will describe a technical framework, based on open source tools, for performing point-based exploratory data analysis and analytics over a range of viewing scales, together with examples of its usefulness. The technical development was divided into two phases: first, compiling the geographic data themes in a point grid designed to encode and access data; second, visualizing and analyzing the themes on a map by developing a Web application, offering on-demand visual and API services.

GeoWave: Analyzing Massive Datasets

GeoWave is an open source project that bridges the gap between geospatial software and distributed computing systems.  This presentation will primarily focus on applications of GeoWave.  In this presentation we will illustrate how GeoWave can visualize massive datasets and further enables distributed processing to perform analysis at scale.

We will guide the audience through a variety of examples utilizing GeoWave to efficiently visualize and analyze very large datasets.  Examples include:

GIS For Ports: Geospatial Security Mapping System at the Port of Oakland

AECOM developed and implemented the Geospatial Security Mapping System (GSMS) for the Port of Oakland (Port) - this session will explore that process and implementation. The ongoing objective of the project is to produce an enterprise geographic information system (GIS) comprised of data, hardware, software, process documentation, training, and support that will be used by the Port to improve daily operations, to prepare for and manage crisis events, and to advise recovery efforts.
