OpenTopography team member Sriram Krishnan presented a paper this week at the 2nd annual IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology and Science (CloudCom 2010) in Indianapolis on LiDAR digital elevation model (DEM) generation using the cloud-based
OpenTopography will be performing maintenance on servers associated with our standard DEM download system on Friday, November 12th. During this time, DEM downloads will be unavailable. Please check the "LiDAR System Status" box in the left hand menu under the "Data" tab for updated information related to the outage.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego, has announced a new and unique volunteer internship program for undergraduate students entitled Computational Research Experience for Undergraduates (CREU).
The 2010 Geological Society of America Annual Meeting will be held October 31st to November 3rd in Denver, CO. This year, there are a number of sessions related to LiDAR topography data, and OpenTopography team members will be making several presentations:
Today we corrected a significant bug in the OpenTopography point cloud access and processing system that was introduced at the OT 2.2 release two weeks ago. The bug, which we missed in beta testing, also went unreported by users over the past two weeks despite significantly impacting data products generated by OpenTopography.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce another update to our system. This release - OpenTopography v 2.2 - provides a much needed improvement to our standard digital elevation model (DEM) download interface. The new system makes it considerably easier to select and download many files at once, and also fixes issues that were causing stalled downloads in the previous system.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of 840 sq kilometers of LiDAR point cloud data collected between January 21st and January 27th, 2010, in response to the January 12th magnitude 7.0 Haiti earthquake.
