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

UAV/lidar Data Analytics The course covers monitoring, analysis, and modeling of 3D landscape change using Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and lidar data. The principles of UAS data collection, processing of 3D point clouds and the resulting terrain models are explained, followed by hands-on experience with multitemporal data collected by the NCSU NextGen Air Transportation (NGAT) program. 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

CURSO DE MODELOS DE DISTRIBUCIÓN DE ESPECIES En este curso se utiliza software libre (OpenModeller, GRASS GIS, Octave y Open Office, entre otros) para aprender a generar modelos de distribución de especies biológicas. Estos modelos sirven para pronosticar los lugares en los que pueden aparecer nuevas poblaciones de plantas o animales, y sus objetivos son variados: diseño de reservas, búsqueda de nuevas poblaciones, predicción de invasiones biológicas, o análisis de impacto potencial del cambio climático en la distribución geográfica de las especies. El material, que se compone del software, tutorial y datos de prueba, se confeccionó para un curso de la Sociedad Española de la Biología de Conservación de Plantas que tuvo lugar en Septiembre de 2008. Por requerimientos del aula en la que se desarrolló el curso, el material disponible está preparado para un Sistema Operativo Windows XP, aunque todo el software está disponible también para Linux, por lo que es relativamente sencillo seguirlo desde esta plataforma libre.Blas Benito de Pando2009-07-21 13:03

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 .
