The ability to collect geographically referenced information using your smartphone or tablet is an increasingly popular way to quickly and efficiently collect data. This blog posting will focus on the steps necessary to get a web map up and running for use within the Collector app.
Staff from the URI EDC presented a poster highlighting their work on a National Park Service (NPS) project at the 2016 ESRI User Conference in San Diego, California. The map gallery at the ESRI UC is a showcase of maps and mapping products from around the world. 2016 winners of the Map Gallery map competition can be seen here.
Custom color ramps can allow you to better visualize your data to suit your needs. Here, you will learn how to create two color ramps for topobathy LiDAR - one for bathymetric elevations, and one for topographic elevations.
Creating eye-catching visualizations is crucial to a memorable presentation. Here we will introduce an Esri tool that allows users to “split” a topobathy digital elevation model (DEM) into two separate rasters, allowing for better visualization for submerged and topographic elevations.
Historically, access to the Homeland Infrastructure Foundation-Level Data (HIFLD) has been restricted to applicants meeting a variety of criteria, such as working for a federal government agency, or state emergency management agency. With the release of their new ArcGIS Online Open Data website, the HIFLD has made data previously contained within the Homeland Security Infrastructure Program (HSIP) databases available, and open, to the public.
Topobathy LiDAR is the combination, or parallel collection of traditional terrestrial LiDAR and bathymetric LiDAR. Here we will walk through the process of creating a high-quality topobathy Digital Elevation Model utilizing a portion of the 2014 NOAA National Geodetic Survey (NGS) Topobathy LiDAR data.
