The UNAVCO GEON Integrated Data Viewer: Introduction

Very often the IDV is the best way to show all the details of 3D Earth-located science data. The IDV is designed to promote effective investigation and understanding of modern, complex, high volume geoscience data. The IDV uses the full strength of the human eye, mind, and perception to discover and understand meaningful details and time variations in complex spatial data. GPS eXchange Format. GPX, or GPS eXchange Format is an XML schema designed as a common GPS data format for software applications.

GPS eXchange Format

It can be used to describe waypoints, tracks, and routes. The format is open and can be used without the need to pay license fees. Its tags store location, elevation, and time and can in this way be used to interchange data between GPS devices and software packages. Such computer programs allow users, for example, to view their tracks, project their tracks on satellite images or other maps, annotate maps, and tag photographs with the geolocation in the Exif metadata.

Data types[edit] This is the essential data contained in GPX files. WpType: lat="DD.thm... " lon="DDD.thm... " plus other data: is the WGS 84 (GPS) coordinates of a point and other description. <wpt> wptType </wpt> is an individual waypoint among a collection of points with no sequential relationship, despite the name (the county towns of England, say, or all Skyscrapers in New York). <trk><trkseg><trkpt wpType />... Keyhole Markup Language. Structure[edit] The KML file specifies a set of features (place marks, images, polygons, 3D models, textual descriptions, etc.) for display in Here Maps, Google Earth, Maps and Mobile, or any other geospatial software implementing the KML encoding.

Keyhole Markup Language

Each place always has a longitude and a latitude. Other data can make the view more specific, such as tilt, heading, altitude, which together define a "camera view" along with a timestamp or timespan. KML shares some of the same structural grammar as GML. Creating Contour Maps. Quickstart — GeoTools 8.0-M3 User Guide. Pulling Geo maps into processing? GeopaparazziAndBeegis - geopaparazzi - The link between geopaparazzi and a real GIS. - Because not all paparazzis are evil! BeeGIS is an application developed to be used by geologists and engineers on outdoor surveys, but can serve other professionals in different works requiring a simple-yet-powerful software for registering geographical data on the field.

GeopaparazziAndBeegis - geopaparazzi - The link between geopaparazzi and a real GIS. - Because not all paparazzis are evil!

BeeGIS is able to read Geopaparazzi's survey data and import them as most used GIS formats. The Geopaparazzi-BeeGIS link currently works on the new version of BeeGIS developed here. Make sure you have connected your android phone to the pc and mounted the internal sdcard as disk, so that it can be browsed with a system browser of the operating system. To import Geopaparazzi data into BeeGIS you have to be able to see the disk of the smartphone and inside there the geopaparazzi folder. In linux this looks like: Once you are aware of where the disk was mounted, from within BeeGIS open the import wizard. The only input required are the path to the geopaparazzi folder on the phone and the folder into which to write the geopaparazzi data:

Creating Contour Maps. Creating Contour MapsCreating 3d contour maps using heightmaps in processing.

Creating Contour Maps

For some of our past projects we were in the need of creating 3d contour maps in Processing. A contour, or topographic map, uses contour lines which join points of equal elevation above a given level to show valleys and hills. You can think of these lines as intersection of a 3-dimensional surface and several horizontal planes. The following tutorial will cover two main questions. How to generate these contour maps in processing. Creating a contour map We started working on different approaches creating the contour maps but realized most of them were either too slow, the results were not really satisfying, or it wasn’t possible to transform them to 3d as they were pixel based.

So after testing different libraries, we decided to use v3gas Blob Detection library which seemed to be the best for our purpose. Processing code.
