A statistical surface is any geographic entity that can be thought of as containing a Z value for each X,Y location. Digital elevation models being the most well known example, others include gradient, temperature, population, economic potential. A statistical surface can be any numerically measurable attribute that varies continuously over space, [...]
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) have signed a collaboration agreement to enhance the development and use of geospatial standards. It is anticipated that this collaboration will enable the JRC to more effectively contribute to the OGC standards process, and facilitate the consideration of European objectives and requirements during the development of international open geospatial standards.
The agreement formalises the partners’ planned collaboration in the field of development, application, maintenance and promotion of international open geospatial standards and best practices in support of European objectives and requirements, in particular in relation to the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive.
This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is for people who know something about data analysis and want to learn about the special capabilities of spatial data analysis. Spatial analysis focuses on location to gain a deeper understanding of data. Spatial analysis skills are in high demand by organizations around the world. You'll get free access to the full analytical capabilities of ArcGIS Online, Esri's cloud-based GIS platform. Previous experience with GIS software is helpful, but not necessary for tech-savvy problem solvers. Could you and your career go places with spatial analysis?
I have blogged about the GeoPackage several times over the past couple of years. GeoPackage is an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard for exchanging spatial data, especially among mobile devices. It is the modern alternative to formats like SDTS and...
