Spatio-temporal data handling and visualization in GRASS GIS First, we will introduce you to GRASS GIS 7, including its spatio-temporal capabilities and you will learn how to manage and analyze geospatial data time series. Then, we will explore new tools for visualization of spatio-temporal data. You will create both 2D and 3D dynamic visualizations directly in GRASS GIS 7. Additionally, we will explain the Space Time Cube concept using various applications based on raster and vector data time series. You will learn to manage and visualize data in space time cubes (voxel models). No prior knowledge of GRASS GIS is necessary, we will cover the basics needed for the workshop. This workshop was originally created for FOSS4G 2014. Vaclav Petras, Anna Petrasova, Helena Mitasova, Markus Neteler2016-01-11 03:44

The course also covers techniques for analysis and visualization of lidar data time series and outputs of dynamic simulations, including immersive visualization at the Hunt library facilities. The students will also have the opportunity to work with the Tangible Landscape system to explore impact of 3D terrain change on landscape parameters and processes. Course uses both open source and proprietary software each for different tasks.Helena Mitasova, Justyna Jeziorska, Vaclav Petras, Anna Petrasova2016-01-11 03:28
Introduction to Using R (& RStudio) for Spatial Analysis This material is for a workshop course, designed to be given to small groups. However, it can also be used independently. This course will cover an introduction to R, how to load and manage spatial data and how to create maps using R. We will look at appropriate ways of using classifications for choropleth maps, using loops in R to create multiple maps and some basic spatial analysis. We will be using R Studio to work with the R environment. By the end of the course you will be able to load data into R, represent it effectively and be able to prepare an output quality map.Dr Nick Bearman2015-08-29 10:58

Supporting sustainable development: the GRASS GIS opportunity Two environmental relevant examples are worked out in this lab: 1)estimation of the quantity of potential solar energy that could be produced with solar panels using as input information the landscape morphology and the characteristics of building roofs obtainable from LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) Digital Surface Models and Digital Terrain Models. 2)risk assessment due to tsunami events: hazard, vulnerability and expected damages maps are computed. Specifically the exercise consists in the estimation of the maximum vertical height of the tsunami waves hitting the coast (run-up) and the subsequent diffusion over the inland areas, as a function of morphology, vegetation, and of coastal area urbanization. The results are used to estimate hazard corresponding to different return period events, associated exposition and vulnerability .
