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.
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:
Open source is gleefully rewriting the rules of the GIS industry at all levels of industry and government. Adoption of open source in is well underway, with success stories illustrating the benefits. This decade we are going further - fostering a healthy, sustainable, working relationship between industry/government and open source:
GeoServer is an open source server that allows users to share and publish spatial data over the web.
In this tutorial, attendees will learn how to load, publish, style, and share spatial data with GeoServer. Discussion will include navigating the GeoServer user interface, loading and publishing data, OGC web services, and styling.
This is a popular workshop geared toward those with no prior GeoServer experience. Familiarity with basic GIS concepts is suggested.
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.
Although Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality headsets have been creating much buzz in the realms of video games and other fields, due to new generations of devices and consumer affordability, the ecosystem of Virtual Reality GIS arguably requires more maturity before adoption can be justfied in certain settings.
California has been described as a dry place, with some unusual wet years. The last five years of drought – and precipitation this winter – support this. Per capita water availability is often reported at the state level, yet this spatial scale is not well suited to how we actually can use water. Looking a watershed level gives a different picture of how much water would naturally be available within area.
Open source adoption is taking place at an unprecedented rate by modern enterprises who want to drive competitive advantage and innovation within their industries. This is especially pertinent in the geographic information systems (GIS) community, where organizations need open source software to make the most of their location-based data. Oftentimes, proprietary software architectures prevent companies from reaching their full potential due to high costs and inability to scale.
Archaeological sites, historic buildings and structures and other cultural heritage is at risk in countries around the world. Working with the Getty Conservation Institute and World Monuments Fund, we’ve developed an open source, web-based geospatial data management system called Arches (http://www.archesproject.org) that lets organizations build and manage inventories of their heritage objects, a key step in protecting built heritage. Because describing cultural heritage objects is so dependent on location (think of the difference
