Data: Big, Little and Everything In Between

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

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.

Application of Topo-Bathymetric LiDAR for Mapping Nearshore Coastal and Riverine Environments.

Airborne topo-bathymetric (or green wavelength) LiDAR continues to develop as a unique tool for mapping shallow water environments.  Over the past two years a new generation of topo-bathymetric LiDAR sensors has entered the commercial market that offers increased functionality and expanded performance capabilities.  Quantum spatial, Inc.

Make your database work for you

Part of the challenge with using open source databases in GIS, is getting them set up to work efficiently.  This presentation will include an overview of places where the database can be configured in a way that it does the work for you, as opposed to vice-versa.<!--break-->

We will look at the following areas:

Completely revolutionizing the document and data transfer process from submittals into GIS

Most organizations face the challenge of capturing GIS and attribute data from electronic submittals – a time consuming process often involving data recapture and careful verification. Come and see how this process can be radically improved and automated from start to finish. Adding value through data accuracy and efficiency is achieved through automated data validation and push button data loading. Submittal drawings can be checked against data standards such as the Local Government Data Model, A-SPEC and output to directly to GIS.

Mapping Water Quality Standards to the NHD in California

California's complex water quality regulatory system of overlapping laws, plans, policies and guidelines makes it difficult to determine the particular standards that apply to a specific water body. To address the problem, the CA Water Resources Control Board and CSU Northridge developed a geospatial database that maps the relevant uses and water quality thresholds to the high-resolution National Hydrologic Dataset. This dataset now forms a key component of the Water Board’s data infrastructure.

US Census Bureau: Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) Operation

The Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) operation is a voluntary decennial census operation. LUCA is the only opportunity for tribal, state, and local governments to review and update the U.S. Census Bureau's address list for their jurisdiction in preparation for the 2020 Census. The accuracy and completeness of the address list is critical to the accuracy and completeness of the decennial census. The presentation will be an introduction to LUCA for the 2020 Census.
