OGC Announces New Geospatial User Feedback Standards Working Group

OGC Announces New Geospatial User Feedback Standards Working GroupJULY 17, 2014 / MATT ARTZ

Members of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) have formed an OGC Geospatial User Feedback Standards Working Group (SWG). The purpose of this SWG will be to reach consensus on a standard way to encode users’ comments on the results those users obtain when querying spatial databases. This effort has the potential to improve metadata, complement the producer quality indicators, extend the documentation about usability and usage of datasets, help data producers improve their data collection and publishing methods, and ultimately improve the quality of the data as well as the quality of analyses performed on the data.

 

The OGC Geospatial User Feedback SWG charter can be downloaded fromhttps://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/59800.

Researchers of German Remote Sensing Data Center as a result of latest global survey find humans  have settled more of the earth than estimated earlier.

 

The Global Urban Footprints survey project involves  creating  a massive database of radar imagery from twin German satellites TanDEM-X and TerraSAR-X. Using close to 180,000 radar images, the scientists seek to uncover human development around the world.

India, Brazil sign agreement on IRS satellite data

India, Brazil sign agreement on IRS satellite data | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Brazil: After Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff hosted Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Brasilia on the margins of the Sixth BRICS Summit, India and Brazil signed an agreement which would facilitate the Brazilian earth stations to receive and process data from Indian Remote Sensing satellites (IRS).

 

Confirming the news, a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) read, “The agreement provides for the reception of data from AWiFS and LISS-III payloads of IRS satellites, including but not limited to the Resourcesat-2 at Cuiaba earth station in Brazil on a government-to-government cooperation basis.” 

 

AWIFS (Advanced Wide Field Sensor) is an optical sensor with intermediate spatial resolution. The LISS-III (Linear Imaging Self Scanning Sensor) sensor is an optical sensor working in four spectral bands (green, red, near infrared and short wave infrared). It covers a 141km-wide swath with a resolution of 23 metres in all spectral bands.

What’s the Deal with 3DEP?JULY 18, 2014 / MATT ARTZ

Replacing Outdated and Inconsistent Elevation Data Will Save Lives and Improve Prosperity Across Our Nation

The USGS, along with other federal, state, local and private agencies is establishing a new 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) designed to respond to the growing needs for three-dimensional mapping data of the United States. This coordinated partnership can help meet the country’s needs for high-quality, 3D elevation data.

Current and accurate 3D elevation data are essential to help communities cope with natural hazards and disasters such as floods and landslides, support infrastructure, ensure agricultural success, strengthen environmental decision-making and bolster national security.

Investigating land use change over time with the USGS Historical Topographic Map Explorer - GIS Education Community

Investigating land use change over time with the USGS Historical Topographic Map Explorer - GIS Education Community | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Investigating land use change over time with the USGS Historical Topographic Map Explorer, by Joseph Kerski on July 18, 2014

 

Investigating land use change over time has always been a mainstay of geography and environmental education and research.  Recently, several new ways of accessing more than 175,000 historical USGS topographic maps through ArcGIS Online make land use change even more accessible to students, educators, and researchers.  In this essay, I will focus on the USGS Historical Topographic Map Explorer, and in future essays, discuss some of the other ways that you can easily access these maps in ArcGIS Online.  As a former USGS geographer, I consider the arrival of these maps in ArcGIS Online as one of the most exciting announcements of the past decade.

 

The USGS Historical Topographic Map Explorer is a customized application that runs in a web browser that shows the dates and scales of the available USGS topographic maps for any area of the USA below a chosen area of interest.  Simply by selecting individual maps using this application, changes in coastlines, river flow resulting from the construction of reservoirs, urbanization, and much more can be examined.  In the example below, I explore one of the most rapidly urbanizing areas of the country, Plano, Texas, comparing the current topographic base map to the 1960 USGS topographic map.  As is evident, many additional maps of the area at different scales and dates are available.
