Urban Modeling with ArcGIS 3D Analyst and SketchUp This article describes what happened when 13 urban planning and architecture faculty members and students at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), who had no proficiency in CAD or GIS software, came together to create an interactive three-dimensional GIS for a portion of downtown Fort Lauderdale in only 12 days.

1-Interoperable Three-Dimensional GIS

A working integration of three-dimensional models with georeferenced databases holds great promise for physical planning and design. It allows for simulation, visualization, shadow studies, urban wind effects, and neighborhood compatibility studies. Esri has made significant strides in the functionality of the ArcGIS 3D Analyst extension (which includes the ArcScene and ArcGlobe applications). Interoperability with dedicated three-dimensional modeling software packages, such as Google SketchUp, provide even more opportunities for real-time and interactive analyses. Let's describe the whole world! Geocaching - The Official Global GPS Cache Hunt Site. ASTER Imagery. Global Map NASA and Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and industry (METI) released the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) Global Digital Elevation Model (GDEM) to the worldwide public on June 29, 2009.

ASTER Imagery

The GDEM was created by processing and stereo-correlating the 1.3 million-scene ASTER archive of optical images, covering Earth's land surface between 83 degrees North and 83 degrees South latitudes. The GDEM is produced with 30-meter (98-feet) postings, and is formatted as 23,000 one-by-one- degree tiles. Anthropogenic biomes - Encyclopedia of Earth. Anthropogenic biomes describe globally-significant ecological patterns within the terrestrial biosphere caused by sustained direct human interaction with ecosystems, including agriculture, urbanization, forestry and other land uses.

Anthropogenic biomes - Encyclopedia of Earth

Conventional biomes, such as tropical rainforests or grasslands, are based on global vegetation patterns related to climate. Now that humans have fundamentally altered global patterns of ecosystem form, process, and biodiversity, anthropogenic biomes provide a contemporary view of the terrestrial biosphere in its human-altered form. Anthropogenic biomes may also be termed "anthromes" to distinguish them from conventional biome systems, or "human biomes" (a simpler but less precise term). SEDAC - Last of the Wild: Home. Introduction Human influence is a global driver of ecological processes on the planet, on par with climatic trends, geological forces, and astronomical variations.

SEDAC - Last of the Wild: Home

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) at Columbia University have joined together to systematically map and measure the human influence on the Earth’s land surface today. Maps and Graphics at UNEP/GRID-Arendal. The GRID-Arendal Maps & Graphics Library is an on-going project to collect and catalogue all graphic products that have been prepared for publications and web-sites from the last 15 years in a wide range of themes related to environment and sustainable development.

Digital Elevation Models

Terrain data is surprisingly easy to obtain and convert into useful representations that may be used in GIS and also popular CAD and 3d modeling formats. Explain the world with maps. - UUorld.
