Presentations covering emerging trends & focusing on the newest innovative techniques involving open-source software & analytics.

  • QGIS for the Desktop
             Randal Hale
    QGIS is a free and open source software that has been in development for over 10 years. It's currently at 2.x for a release and has a vibrant and engaged of community of users. You can edit shapefiles, geodatabases, and use it as a client to postgresql/postgis. QGIS is OGC compliant so it works with any service or data that falls into that category. It has a very small foot print (less than 4 Gb of RAM is needed) for installation. It makes a great addition to your GIS toolbox/workflow - especially if budget is an issue.


  • GRASS7: New Features and Tools for Spatio-Temporal Analytics and Visualization
             Dr. Helena Mitasova
    GRASS GIS, a free and open source geographic information system, provides the functionality to manage, analyze and visualize geospatial data. The latest GRASS7 release incorporates an experimental new framework for managing and analyzing large, multitemporal data sets as a response to an increasing accessibility and importance of spatio-temporal data. The temporal framework supports efficient raster and vector data series analysis and simplifies data input for visual analysis of dynamic landscapes. GRASS7 can display synchronized animations of raster, vector and 3D raster data in two- and three-dimensional views and has been successfully used for visual exploration of high resolution 3D data in the Hunt library 270 degree visualization facility. GRASS7 also supports visualization, analysis and design using Tangible Landscape system to bealso presented at the conference.


  • MapLoom: A New Web-client With Versioned Editing (GeoGit) Integration
             Syrus Mesdaghi, Tyler Garner
    The capabilities include per feature and layer history, viewing difference between revisions, merging, conflict resolution, and synchronizing with multiple remotes through the UI. The ability to synchronize a repository with multiple remotes is just one of the reasons why development of GeoGit was the solution to our needs. GeoGit allows distributed versioned editing of geospatial data at a feature level and allows the repositories to be synchronized even in disconnected or reduced connectivity environments.
