Atlas of the Human Planet: Free GIS Data and Tools - GIS Lounge. The Atlas of the Human Planet 2020 is the most recent global atlas that provides geoinformation for research, policy, and action that can be used to document the presence of humanity on Earth.

Atlas of the Human Planet: Free GIS Data and Tools - GIS Lounge

This forms a key effort of the Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL) that has updated the earlier Atlas of the Human Planet, such as the one from 2019. Downloading Geospatial Data from the Atlas of the Human Planet Data and tools can be downloaded from the GHSL and Atlas. The intent is to provide data for disaster risk reduction and crisis management related to environmental problems, urbanization, and aid in the effort for sustainable development. Members of the Group of Earth Observation (GEO) Human Planet Initiative, including the European Commission (EC), various international organisations such as the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the World Bank, private sector, and academic institutions have contributed data used for the initiative.

QGIS Style Sharing Repository - GIS Lounge. A new tool has been deployed that lets QGIS users share style files.

QGIS Style Sharing Repository - GIS Lounge

Style files are used in QGIS to set cartographic visualizations for individual layers. Features such as symbology, fonts, a color ramps can be set via a style file. Users can access the various styles they have in their instance of QGIS by selecting Setting –> Style Manager from the top menu options. Earth Engine Data Catalog   Earth Engine's public data catalog includes a variety of standard Earth science raster datasets.

Presented by Dr. Alison Boyer and Dr. Jessica Welch, both from ORNL, the webinar first introduces GIS datasets offered by ORNL’s Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) which archives GIS data produced by NASA’s Terrestrial Ecology Program. Rivers as Borders: GIS Dataset Available For Downloading - GIS Lounge. Earlier this spring, Laurence Smith, professor of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences at Brown University, released his latest work, “Rivers of Power: How a Natural Force Raised Kingdoms, Destroyed Civilizations, and Shapes Our World.”

Rivers as Borders: GIS Dataset Available For Downloading - GIS Lounge

The book is a scientific dive into how rivers shape the surface of our planet and of their roles in human history. Hydrology has long been a focal point of Smith’s research. His previous book (published in 2010), “The World in 2050” looked, in part, at how the climate change in the Arctic would open up shipping lanes previously impassable due to ice.

Humanistic GIS Laboratory – Leverage GIS with Humanism. Global Refugee Atlas. The Global Refugee Atlas visualizes and narrates core experiences of the millions of refugees under the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) mandate using remote sensing data, crowdsourced social media data as well as a host of datasets from UNHCR and other international humanitarian agencies.

Global Refugee Atlas

Exploiting the availability of these datasets, the Atlas is built on an open geo-narrative platform to illuminate the contexts and conditions underlying refugee journeys and camps. About The Atlas is divided in five chapters that explore different aspects of the refugee experience, from the causes that generate international crises to the perception of social media users throghout the world. Refugee experiences are highlighted through the use of geo-narratives using as case studies two stories: refugees escaping the brutality of the Burundian civil war and Somali refugees trying to reach the Mediterranean shores (Journeys section). EpiRisk. Loading... Welcome to EpiRisk EpiRisk is a computational platform designed to allow a quick estimate of the probability of exporting infected individuals from sites affected by a disease outbreak to other areas in the world through the airline transportation network and the daily commuting patters.

It also lets the user to explore the effects of potential restrictions applied to airline traffic and commuting flows. Based on the number of infected individuals detected in one or more areas of the world, the platforms estimates two main quantities. · Exported cases: the tool computes the probability P(n) of exporting a given number of cases n from the origin of the disease outbreak.

. · Relative importation risk: for each location Y the platform evaluates the probability P(Y) that a single infected individual is traveling from the index areas to that specific destination Y. International-Domestic spreading of 2019-nCoV-V4. Novel Coronavirus Infection Map. This online interactive map enables users to track both the global and local trends of Novel Coronavirus infection since Jan 21st, 2020.

The supporting dataset is timely collected from multiple official sources and then plotted onto this map. Data Sources The data are mainly collected from 1. National Health Commission (NHC) of the People’s Republic of China 2. China’s Provincial & Municipal Health Commission, China’s Provincial & Municipal government database 3. In the data table, each entry indicates the infection status in the format of "#-#-#-#" -- a 4-sequel entry divided by dashes. Update Procedure. Diferencias entre técnico GIS, analista GIS y consultor GIS.

Si para un profesional que trabaja con SIG en ocasiones es difícil explicar a un profano a qué nos dedicamos, quizá más complicado es establecer una categoría a nuestros conocimientos. Las habilidades que deberían tener un técnico GIS, un analista GIS o un consultor en Sistemas de Información Geográfica son diferentes. Vamos a intentar esclarecer qué habilidades debería tener cada uno, empezando de menos a más. New Course: QField Quickstart - Geospatial Brainstorming. QField is an open-source Android based mobile data collection and/or viewing application that is tightly integrated with QGIS. QGIS is used to set up the project using standard QGIS tools. If the layers in your project are stored in a PostGIS database and a mobile data connection is available then changes made in QField are made directly to your database and visible in real-time to anyone that has a client to your database. This, in my view, is the mobile data collection killer app. QGIS symbology is recreated in QField.

QGIS edit widgets are used to create data entry forms in QField. If a relate is set up in the QGIS project then the same relates are used in QField to create child records, such as plant composition associated with a point. If print layouts are created in the QGIS project then those print layouts can be used to generate PDF documents on the device and emailed to project managers or clients.

EarthPy: Python Package for Plotting and Working with Spatial Data. A Python language spatial package, called EarthPy, has been released for free download for spatial analysts and scientists interested in conducting various forms of analyses without necessarily having a lot of background knowledge on Python or spatial analysis. EarthPy was initially created by and for Earth system science with a heavy emphasis on raster data.

However, the tool has now also incorporated vector-based and spatial methods that allow it to be extended into other application areas. Free Online Geocoder. Developed by LocalFocus, this online geocoder will generate lat/long coordinates for a list of addresses for free. Listed as a “Batch geocoder for journalists” this online geocoder can be used by anyone needing to convert a list of locations to latitude and longitude coordinates. The online geocoder is built using open GIS data from OpenStreetMap, OpenAdressess, and Who’s on first. Pelias, an open-source geocoder, is used to generate the lat/long coordinates from addresses.

GISCI > Home. GIS&T Body of Knowledge.  Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Agriculture, globally provides direct livelihoods for 2.5 billion people and feeds the entire planet. It must, by 2050, produce 49 percent more food than in 2012 as populations grow and diets change. Yet climate change, biodiversity loss, land degradation, water scarcity, pollution and many other challenges are hampering these efforts to feed the planet. The undertaking under the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda is for everyone to address these issues; it is clear however that no meaningful and effective action can be taken without sound and timely data to inform and guide decision makers.
