IDB - Index DataBase

On this site you find a database of remote sensing indices and satellite sensors. Available bands of sensors are linked with required wavelenghts of indices, so that one can get all sensors usable for calculating an index and vice versa one can find all indices that can be calculated by data from a specific sensor. In the index formula wavelengths are substituted by corresponding sensor bands. Furthermore index and sensor data is enriched by applications and bibliografic references.
Philip Knight's insight:
Use this tool to understand the myriad of indices applicable to data acquired via existing Earth Observation platforms.

REMAP: remote ecosystem monitoring & assessment pipeline

Remap is an online mapping platform for people with little technical background in remote sensing.
Philip Knight's insight:
An exciting online mapping platform for people with little technical background in remote sensing. It requires points as training data which it uses to automatically carry out a range of complex analysis using the Google Earth Engine. The classification uses biophysical ( slope, elevation), spectral ( Landsat Archive imagery) and climatic ( precipitation, temperature) datasets.

Shapefile must die!

Page explaining, why ESRI Shapefile is so bad format and we should get rid of it.
Philip Knight's insight:
This blog post explains the limitations of shape file which are not always clear at the outset, but which may come around to bite you down the line. For me working in Laos it is the lack of definition of the character set. As shape files are passed around this seems to end up with corrupted data. I'm now starting to experiment with Geopackage for my work.
