Pre- and Post-Storm 3D Lidar Topography - Hurricane Stormname - Coastal Change Hazards: Hurricanes and Extreme Storms

Pre- and Post-Storm 3D Lidar Topography - Hurricane Stormname - Coastal Change Hazards: Hurricanes and Extreme Storms | Geographic Information Technology | Scoop.it

"NOAA-USGS airborne lidar survey of post-storm topography was completed August 28, 2011 along the North Carolina coast to detect coastal change resulting from Hurricane Irene. Comparisons of the post-storm elevation data to lidar data collected in 2009 are used to characterize the nature, magnitude, and spatial variability of hurricane-induced coastal changes, such as beach erosion, overwash deposition, and island breaching."

Mapping functional distance: the communte

Mapping functional distance: the communte | Geographic Information Technology | Scoop.it

As described by Manu Fernandez, "MySociety developed this project that perfectly illustrates the utility of georeferenced data. Mapumental tool displays the travel time to reach a certain point from anywhere in the city, thereby helping to understand the temporal distance mobility, a much more useful and practical information than just physical distance."

 

This type of mapping shows the Space-Time Compression as well as the unevenness of that compression.  Why are some areas 'functionally closer?'  What makes some places 'functionally farther apart?'   How do technology, density and infrastructure influence this phenomenon?

Excellent application of isochronism in geomarketing studies have great use with them we know the areas of influence at 5, 10 or 15 min.

This tool in combination with demographic data can be known potential areas of my future clients.

Currently working with a company in which we develop these products. I leave you some examples of isochrones lins.

Emily Bian's curator insight, October 3, 2014 5:13 PM

This is a thematic map showing the different languages spoken on Twitter in Europe. This Europe thematic is really neat to look at, but it also shows globalization in that Twitter is everywhere, and people are more connected because of it. This increases interactions between people living in different countries, and even different continents. 

            3) language and communication

This will help future APHUG students, because Twitter is relatable to a lot of teens and it will open their eyes to the different languages spoken across Europe and the world, and it's not just English. It connects them to the rest of the world.
