Database Design for GPS/GIS Applications

1:00pm to 3:00pm

Location: 

B129, Northwest Building, 52 Oxford St, Cambridge
REGISTER NON-HARVARD REGISTER Instructor: Nicole Alexander Database design is a key step in GIS data modeling. GIS data modeling is the process of representing specific aspects of the real world in a computer. This workshop gives an introduction to GIS data modeling and the 3 phases of database design: requirements analysis, schema refinement, and physical database design. It also covers specific design considerations when capturing data for GIS applications using GPS. Students will design a Geodatabase for use in ArcPad on the Trimble GeoXT.

Three-Dimensional GIS

1:00pm to 3:00pm

Location: 

Room B-127, The Northwest Building, 52 Oxford St., Cambridge, MA
It is now common for municipalities to collect data about the heights and three-dimensional shape of buildings. These data, along with terrain models and two-dimensional groundplan information makes it possible to use GIS to create useful three-dimensional models of large areas. These models may be used to visualize design scenarios, as a contextual framework for sensor networks and many other applications. Participants in this workshop will learn to render GIS data in 3D and to perform studies of visual connectivity. Leader/Instructor: Paul Cote

Worldmap Training

1:00pm to 3:00pm

Location: 

B127 52 Oxford St - Northwest Building
The Center for Geographic Analysis is developing WorldMap (http://worldmap.harvard.edu/), an open source platform designed to encourage collaboration between researchers who need access to geospatial information. Despite the many ways in which research materials can now be accessed and shared across the web, the methods suitable for geospatial materials lag. The reasons are many and interconnected: 1) the sparse implementation of standards, 2) the size and complexity of geospatial datasets, 3) the lack of a platform to support geospatial collaboration that is easy to access, 4) the lack of an...
