Your pictures can now have a geographic context of “where.” To make your slideshow standout from all the others you will need: Pictures accessible via the internet and an ArcGIS.com account. With these pieces you can create an application called a Map Tour. Let’s get started!
GeoTIFFs are a high-quality raster storage format that require large amounts of disk space. JPEG2000s provide the same high-quality raster appearance, but require significantly less disk space. This second in the series details how to create seamless basemaps from USGS Topographic GeoPDF's using this more efficient file storage format.
Learn to create seamless basemaps from the US Topographic maps in GeoPDF format by converting them into a "GIS-friendly" format such as GeoTIFF all with a basic script and Global Mapper 15.
This short blog will quickly walk you through downloaded the newest topographic maps for an areas of your choosing from the National Map Viewer. This free download platform provides users with access to free topographic data for the entire country.
This blog posting will build on the Obtaining Elevation Data from NOAA Digital Coast blog post and introduce you to working with LiDAR data within the LAS dataset environment. A LAS Dataset is one of the Esri storage methods for LiDAR data in the LAS file format. Here we will explore creating two of the most basic outputs, the Digital Elevation Model and the Hillshade Model.
Building on the last LiDAR blog post which covered an introduction to using mosaic datasets as a way to manipulate LiDAR data. Here we explore more in-depth processes that can result in useful and versatile products.
In past blog postings we have discussed how mosaic datasets can be a powerful tool when used with imagery data. This blog post will introduce how mosaic datasets can also be a powerful tool to quickly create highly useful and variable products from LiDAR data.
The U.S. National Grid is a grid-based reference system used in search and rescue operations. Here, we will introduce where to download data for your area, and how to make this data useful in the form of Map Books.
This new viewer from the USGS provides GIS and non-GIS users with important coastal change information for the entire United States. Here, users can search, view, share, save and downloaded a multitude of coastal change data.
