New Technique Tracks ‘Heartbeat’ of Hundreds of Wetlands

For two University of Washington researchers, the real test came as they walked across a barren-looking field. They were on the Columbia Plateau with two state wetland ecologists, searching for a 1-acre body of water identified and mapped for the first time using a new method they developed. But when the group arrived at the

Mining Social Media Can Help Improve Disaster Response Efforts

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.—Leveraging publicly available social media posts could help disaster response agencies quickly identify impacted areas in need of assistance, according to a Penn State-led team of researchers. By analyzing the September 2013 Colorado floods, researchers showed that a combination of remote sensing, Twitter and Flickr data could be used to identify flooded areas.

Addressing Nutrient Pollution with “Visualize Your Water” Challenge

Nutrient pollution is one of the nation’s most difficult environmental challenges. While nutrients are essential compounds for functioning ecosystems and the production of food, fiber, and livestock feed, excessive nutrient levels can dramatically alter aquatic environments and threaten economic and human health. Today, EPA, USGS, ED, the Great Lakes 5 Observing System, and Esri are

Learn to Make Decisions Using Lidar Data and Geographic Information Systems

Redlands, Calif., Oct. 5, 2015—A new book published by Esri teaches how to use geographic information system (GIS) software to analyze and visualize lidar data. Lidar is an optical remote-sensing system that uses a laser to measure topography, vegetation, objects such as buildings, and the ocean floor at some depths. Data collected from lidar can

Industry Overview: Geospatial Datasets Are Going 
from Big to HUGE!

There’s no doubt that geospatial datasets are a prime example of “big data.” Clearly, when the goal of the geospatial industry is to record Earth’s changes through mapping and geospatial products and services, a planet-sized dataset can’t be small. The fact that the world is constantly changing and there’s continual innovation in the sensors and

Big Data Help Scientists Dig Deeper

In 2008, the U.S. Geological Survey took 3.6 million images acquired by Landsat satellites and made them free and openly available on the Internet. Dating back to 1972, the images are detailed enough to show the impact of human decisions on the land, and they provide the longest continuous view of Earth’s landscape from space.
