  1. better you upload your personal files and medicine in rar or zip and password protected, here we go : Google Drive allows users to store any files they want but the cloud hosting service actively prevents users from sharing or distributing copyrighted files. While Google doesn't go into the finer details of its detection methods, it uses file-hashes to detect infringing content. There a thousands of options for people who want to store files online and Google Drive is one of them. The cloud hosting service allows users to store all content imaginable, videos included. Whether it’s wise or not, some people even use Drive to store pirated files. This usually doesn’t cause any problems but when they’re shared in public, alarm bells may start to go off. This week we received a tip from a reader who was unable to share a link to a screener copy of a Hollywood blockbuster. Instead of a public link, Google drive warned that sharing the file in question could violate its terms of service. Through a follow-up test, we were able to replicate the result. Google Drive didn’t specify what the violation was but instead linked to information about the DMCA takedown procedure as additional information. So what’s going on here? We contacted Google directly to find out more about the process involved, and how files are flagged as copyright-infringing. Unfortunately, the company wasn’t very forthcoming. “We don’t comment on the details of our anti-abuse mechanisms on Drive,” a Google spokesperson replied. Luckily, we were able to find some more information in a transcript from a Copyright Office Roundtable that took place in San Francisco last year. Here, Google was asked about its anti-piracy policies. During the discussion, Fox Entertainment Group’s Elizabeth Valentina pointed out that several prominent piracy platforms use Google as a video host, as we previously highlighted as well. She then added that hash filtering could make a huge difference here. Google’s legal director for copyright Fred Von Lohman did not refute this claim but mentioned that Google drive already uses hash matching to detect infringing material. “I just want to note that, contrary to Ms. Valentina’s statement or suggestion, Google Drive does hash matching. So we do that, another voluntary measure,” Von Lohman said at the time. No concrete details were provided, but it’s likely that Google Drive records the hashes of content for which they receive valid takedown requests. These hashes are unique to the file in question, which makes it possible to identify copies accurately. If other Google Drive users then attempt to share a copy of the same file, they are blocked from doing so. However, merely storing the file in a private Drive account doesn’t raise any red flags. Hash filtering is not something new for cloud-hosting services or even Google. Dropbox, for example, has had a similar system in place for several years, and YouTube’s Content-ID system also relies on hash filtering. That said, the Google Drive equivalent isn’t well known to the public, or even rightsholders, it seems. source : https://torrentfreak.com/google-drive-uses-hash-matching-detect-pirated-content/

  2. eCognition is for OBIA only, and very expensive. You'll need Erdas/ ENVI or other software which can do basic operations. eCognition can handle multiple image for single instance, so no worries. eCongition Developer can even do batch and distributed processing. I used OBIA for vegetation mapping and baseline assessment but haven't tried monitoring. If you can come up with a 'rule-set' for each observation, monitoring should get easy. Before that you'll need the imageries processed and ready. If you have experts who knows python and C++, I would suggest to spend this money on cloud services (ie AWS or similar). Now-a-days there is no point spending money for expensive software and PC, cloud is offering unlimited storage and processing power. Consider this app, Matt Hansen is using App Engine to classify forest loss of the whole world using Landsat image .

  3. Well it's pretty obvious that ArcGIS Pro will be the new defacto desktop envvironment soon. As for the current ArcGIS desktop, I always leave 64-bit processing off. It usually alleviates about 95% of any potential problems. If I need background processing (which is rare), there is other software outside of the ESRI framework that will allow for that or I'll use a workstation at work precisely for this purpose... set it and leave it.

  4. I use 10.4.1 and dont have serious error to eliminate error, disable background proc, since this 64bit function pretty much useless if you want 64bit, go straight to arcgis pro when you run processing. avoid minimize the program arcgis 10.5 relatively new. no support yet from most extension.

  8. QGIS should be fine. I would recommend two more software for you. You may want to learn some CAD functionalities in order to manage the reference points and engineering drawings. Try AutoCAD Map (free student version should suffice) or similar products for that. You may also like to bring up quick maps, use them for your business or share them online. Give Mapbox a try.

  9. Thank you for this reply, It looks like I need to get my head around QGIS then, unfortunately I don't think we have the budget for ARCgis at the moment! I will have a go over the next couple of weeks and see how I get on. Thank you again.

  10. you go in right direction when you already make post proc on your GPS data (Trimble, RTK or any kind of GPS) the next step would be export it to any of GIS software personally for me, I use arcgis, but this will be applicable with all GIS Software, in your case, QGIS in your GPS post proc software, you can export those data (point data) to popular GIS format such as .shp this format will be easily open in QGIS or ArcGIS, here we come the GIS part, after you open the data id GIS software, you can start to add another data, like point, line (road or river) and polygon, or edit the existing data. GIS using layer stack to combine different data , just like in cad, so if you familiar with CAD then you will find this pretty familiar for you. after you satisfied you can export it back to GPS using plugin or internal function of the software, in my case I use ArcGIS, Garmin and MxGPS plugin. If you dont have a budget to get paid software, QGIS would be the best option for you there are tons of QGIS tutorial, in youtube or ebook, like this : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNCPalajQvg7wQvzf3fM8fOZ5lMKl86Q4 https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=QGIS+gps good luck and happy learning, dont hesitate to share and ask question here, we happy to help you

  11. I don't think so. If satellite imagery with <2 m in spatial resolution would be free to download like Landsat, then private company like DigitalGlobe, Aibuse and others what they will sell to coustomers ?

  20. Hi all, I'd like to share a tool I created to automate the calculation of spectral indices for remotely sensed imagery. Currently, 22 spectral indices and the following sensors are supported: Landsat 1-5 MSS Landsat 4-5 TM Landsat 7 ETM+ Landsat 8 OLI Worldview-02 MODIS Terra and Aqua Just run the Python script (arcpy or GDAL) and use the GUI interface to select your sensor, indices to calculate, stacked image, and output directory. I haven't shared the tool yet and thus it has not been extensively tested. My personal tests have worked fine, but be sure to validate your outputs just in case! Please let me know if you run into any issues or bugs. I'm happy to address any questions. More detailed information and download here: Remote Sensing Indices Derivation Tool Happy remote sensing folks, Ryan

  25. You cannot compare two software bluntly. ERDAS Imagine has it's own user group in commercial resource management and exploration sector. ENVI also has it's loyal customers in universities and private research groups. The reason ERDAS is so popular in Asia and other places because they have a very good marketing department set in these places. The reason why ENVI can't get out of the wish list is most of the American and EU graduates can't give up using IDL for so many engineering and technical studies. IDL is awfully interesting for geeks, sometime as powerful as Matlab. ITT corp has their money flow steady by its global network of big scale industries, ie. aerospace, transportation, defense, energy and industrial markets. Now ITT is one of 100 top contractor in USA. Intergraph corp is more focused in engineering and geospatial solution since it's beginning (may be that's why they are good at selling their products). ERDAS Imagine, being an adopted son for so many parents over time (starting from the universities of America and Canada) ended up with Intergraph after touching many big names in its path. During its journey the software inherits codes and ideas from many experts, started its algorithms written in Fortran and later rewritten to C, sometimes Python. Being closely tied with a robust Fortran-derived interactive language, ENVI is a cross-platform image processing monster hugely popular among academicians, engineers, geospatial analysts, modelers and programmers. If you are a novice image analyst, ENVI is your thing. If you are a power user, application builder, environmental model maker/ tester, medical scientist, even a rocket scientist you will find ENVI sitting in you pc. But remember, great power comes with great responsibilities. If you are a white-collar GIS analyst, ERDAS Imagine is your thing. This software has it's charm in doing small things quickly and in a stereotyped way. In Imagine, things are easy once you learn the names of the buttons. Every function has only one wizard so learning curve is flatter. If you are a hobbyist, professional with little or no geospatial background, lousy professor then Imagine is your tool. Consider taking a peek to the other big names attached (ie. GeoMedia) to know how Intergraph deals the 'other-part' of geospatial industry. As you can see, every one has their own vice and virtues. Choose wisely.
