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.
Asset management is a key function where connected devices and sensors are being used to inject more efficiencies. From traffic sensors to storm drains, the impact of information from real-time sensors can have huge implications to mitigate congestion and natural disasters, respectively.
This talk will demonstrate how we can perform large scale raster analysis using GeoPySpark in a Jupyter Notebook. GeoPySpark was created to enable access to GeoTrellis to people with knowledge of Python. GeoTrellis is a geographic data processing library for high performance applications. It is written in Scala and uses Spark to work with raster and other geospatial data. GeoTrellis 1.0 was recently released under LocationTech, marking a major achievement for the community that has helped to build the project. It is open source under the Apache 2.0 license.
The US Forest Service is working to improve its ability to manage and share authoritative agency data. Approved data collected from local units that meets certain criteria is stored in the Enterprise Data Warehouse and published via multiple services for use in many applications.
Maps are perhaps uniquely usable by nearly everyone. They provide a visceral, common context for understanding complex relationships. However, not all maps look the same. Our oblique and overhead maps make sense to us, but maps have many shapes. Societies have used maps for millennia to share stories, navigate nomadic travels, cross oceans and build new homes and cities. Our maps have captured the real and perceived past and serve as a simple way to collaborate with others to achieve a common perspective and understanding.
