GIS Fundamentals – (PostGIS-II)

Your Desktop

This workshop will further develop the material covered on spatial databases in the first workshop a few weeks back. PostGIS is the most widely used spatial database and is built on top of PostgreSQL, a powerful open source relational database. The focus of this workshop is to exploit PostGIS to deal with big vector data, […]

GIS Fundamentals – (Map visualization – II)

Your Desktop

This workshop will further develop the material covered on mapping in the first workshop a few weeks back. We will focus on basic cartography principles for map-making and explore the functionalities of R and QGIS for making production-quality bi-variate static and dynamic choropleth maps. We will also explore the functionalities of leaflet, a powerful library, […]

GIS and Spatial Analysis Fundamentals – I (Coordinate system)

Your Desktop

This is the first workshop about the fundamentals of GIS and spatial analysis this semester. Each workshop covers one or two key elements of GIS and spatial analysis and is self-contained. The focus is on conceptual details that can provide sufficient understanding for applications, but we will also touch upon the technical aspects. Most workshops […]

Introduction to Google Earth Engine – I

Your Desktop

Google Earth Engine (GEE) combines a multi-petabyte catalog of satellite imagery and geospatial datasets with planetary-scale analysis capabilities. The instant availability of data, massive compute power, and well-developed API make it a very convenient and powerful platform for geospatial analysis. GEE provides native APIs in JavaScript and Python. However, recently the user community has developed […]
