Database Design for GPS/GIS Applications

1:00pm to 3:00pm

Location: 

B127 52 Oxford St - Northwest Building
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. Taught by Nicole Alexander

Three Dimensional GIS

1:00pm to 3:00pm

Location: 

52 Oxford Street, Northwest Building B129
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.

[Longwood] Remote Sensing & CyberGIS: Performing uncertainty and classification assessment with a supercomputer optimized for geospatial parallel processing

10:00am to 11:00am

Location: 

Warren Alpert Building, Room 563 (Longwood)
The CGA hosts the Harvard Geography Colloquium in which we invite leading academics to present cutting edge geographic research. Abstract Recent advances in airborne light detection and ranging (LIDAR) have produced massive quantities of data used in the generation of digital elevation models (DEMs), which are essential to spatial applications such as flood modeling and urban planning. Airborne LIDAR systems return massive volumes of three-dimensional point cloud measurements at file sizes that are impossible to work with in traditional computing environments, and consequently the accuracies...
