Continuing our collaboration with Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), OpenTopography is pleased to announce the availability of lidar point cloud data from the coast near Kaikoura, Northern Canterbury, New Zealand.
Come connect with OpenTopography at the 2016 American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco! OpenTopography will be in booth #513 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 pleased to announce the release of a number of updates and improvements to the OpenTopography system. This release adds several new features to enhance data discovery, processing, and site usability.
In addition to bug fixes and minor updates, this release includes the following features:
Enhanced site search
We're pleased to announce that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has renewed funding for OpenTopography, a science gateway that provides online access to Earth science oriented high-resolution topography data and processing tools.
Over the past several months OpenTopography has released eight new datasets. Six of these datasets were collected by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) as part of their seed grant program. NCALM is an NSF-funded center that supports the use of airborne laser mapping technology (a.k.a.
OpenTopography, in collaboration with the Boise State University Boise Center Aerospace Lab (BCAL) and NEON, will be teaching a short course this fall on Topographic, Geomorphic, and Vegetation Analysis with Lidar. This workshop is part of a series of NSF/NEON supported training on the use of datasets from the NEON Airborne Observing Platform to enable new discoveries in the biophysical research community.
