OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of four new datasets collected by the National Center for Airborne Lidar Mapping (NCALM). Three of the datasets were collected as part of NCALM's seed grant program, the fourth was supported by the NSF Critical Zone Observatory program. NCALM is an NSF-funded center that supports the use of airborne laser mapping technology (a.k.a.
Come connect with OpenTopography at the 2018 International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF) in Denver, February 5-7! OpenTopography will be in booth #914 in the exhibit hall. Our booth will be staffed by members of the OpenTopography team and is a great chance to ask questions, provide feedback, or to discuss lidar, high resolution topography, and geospatial data infrastructure.
Come connect with OpenTopography at the 2017 American Geophysical Union meeting in New Orleans! OpenTopography will be in booth #1730 on "NSF Street" in the exhibit hall. The booth is shared with the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM). Our booth is staffed by the OpenTopography team and community members, and is a great chance to ask questions, provide feedback, or to discuss lidar, high resolution topography, and cyberinfrastructure.
OpenTopography is guided by an advisory committee which represents OpenTopography users and partners and provides valuable input on decisions related to OpenTopography priorities for data ingestion, interoperability relationships, algorithm and tool deployment, collaborations, and education and community engagement. We seek a graduate student (M.S. or Ph.D.) to join the advisory committee and represent the interests of young scientists who interact with OpenTopography.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of lidar point cloud and DEM data covering 2,775.65 km2 of the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica. Lidar was collected in the austral summer of 2014-2015 with the objective of studying geomorphic changes over the past decade. The study area includes the McMurdo Dry Valleys (Taylor, Pearse, Wright, Victoria, Mckelvey, Barwick, and Valham valleys, and Bull Pass) and nearby McMurdo Station and Scott Base.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego, in collaboration with Boulder, CO-based UNAVCO and the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) have been awarded a NASA ACCESS grant to develop a cyberinfrastructure platform for discovery, access, and visualization of data from NASA’s ICESat and upcoming ICESat
OpenTopography is proud to announce the availability of three new global topographic datasets:
