Introduction to FOSS GIS using QGIS .8, PostgreSQL, PostGIS, and the Grass plugin for QGIS This contains exercises that can be used in a classroom or for self-study as well as homework assignments and datasets needed for the exercises. The one open issue is that some of the PostGIS/PostgreSQL exercises require the use of an external dataset hosted on a server at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.Charlie Schweik, Alexander Stepanov, Maria Fernandez, Mike Hamel, Quentin Lewis2008-12-09 18:10
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 .

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
