OpenTopography at the 2018 American Geophysical Union Meeting

Dec 6, 2018

Connect with OpenTopography at the 2018 American Geophysical Union meeting in Washington D.C.! OpenTopography will be in booth #503 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.

Stop by to see some exciting new features in OpenTopography:

  • The OpenTopography Community Dataspace - come learn how you can use this new feature to upload, archive, and publish point and raster data products produced from small aerial and terrestrial lidar and photogrammetry surveys.
  • Web-based topographic differencing. Just in time for AGU, we have released this new OpenTopography Labs feature that enables vertical topographic differencing (i.e., subtraction of DEMs) through the OpenTopography web interface. Example from the Kumamoto, Japan, earthquake, April 16, 2016. Animation shows pre- and post-earthquake DSMs, and the vertical difference between the two. Buildings that collapsed during the M7.0 earthquake are visible in blue:
