Our colleagues at the Center for Spatial Information Science, The University of Tokyo are organizing a session focused on geoscience applications of high-definition topography at the 2014 JpGU meeting in Yokohama that may be of interest to the OpenTopography community:
Via the Gilbert Club email list, a PhD assistantship position at Utah State University working with Patrick Belmont on feature extraction from lidar topography data:
A series of three related sessions at next spring's European Geoscience Union meeting in Vienna - (27 April – 02 May, 2013) - that should be of interest to the OpenTopography community. All three sessions focus on "Digital Landscapes", and are part of the "GM2 - Geomorphometry" program group:
Paul Morin, Director of the Polar Geospatial Center at University of Minnesota wrote to let us know about the availability of new high-resolution (2 meter) digital elevation models for parts of the Arctic. The data are photogrammetrically derived from DigitalGlobe WorldView-1 and 2 satellite imagery. Details:
UNAVCO is running a pair of short courses at the 2013 Geological Society of America meeting in Denver next month (October 27-30th) that may be of interest to the OpenTopography community. Details are below. The early registration deadline is September 23rd.
OpenTopography is co-convening the following session at the 2013 Geological Society of America meeting, October 27-30th in Denver, CO. We encourage OpenTopography community members working with digital terrain data to submit an abstract.
