  1. Try the MODIS (vegetation monitoring) data from GLCF. They are probably not as fine as Landsat, but may give you a rough picture. May I ask the source? is it the article?
  2. Once I wrote a tutorial about it in GISArea and CG.
  3. I am not sure if you are worried that the operation is slow or the CPU usage is low. ArcGIS is a 32-bit single-threaded application. It cannot use more than 4GB RAM and 1-core at a time. You can try 64-bit background geoprocessing to use more RAM. To use more CPU you can try three thing, try the python console. See this link split your data into 4 part and run the same operation in 4 instances of ArcGIS at the same time. This will use 4 core at a time. ArcGIS Desktop doesn't support distribute operation (I think, like 3DS Max), you'll need to do it all by hand, find some other application who can do the same thing with better speed (ie. 64bit QGIS, Anaconda, R).
  4. Try this solution http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/76562/points-warped-when-exporting-to-shapefile-position-off-in-qgis-when-imported
  5. 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.
  6. Dual-sim with dual-3g/4g, thats cool. Battery is small though.
  7. 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 .

  9. Finally a better mobile view, better editor, better look. Social button works like charm. Just need few more thing, a recent post button like 'unread content' could be helpfull in mobile view, login option should be visible at the beginning 'reply to this topic' button seem redundant, thats ok same goes to 'leader board' section a shoutbox of course more emoticons please
  10. Samsung and Corsair seems better. What is your read/ write speed?
  11. Microsoft announced many thing in it's Connect(); event few weeks back. One of those are Visual Studio 2017 and Visual Studio for mac. Probably not the exact same one like the Community Edition, but surely a more extensive collection compared to VS Code. It's still a preview release. Announcing the new Visual Studio for Mac https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visualstudio/2016/11/16/visual-studio-for-mac/ Visual Studio for Mac Preview https://xamarin.azureedge.net/VsMacInstaller/2016-11-16-2/VisualStudioforMacPreviewInstaller.dmg
  12. PC configuration should not depend on one software. We always have open source alternatives if we cannot afford. Proprietary software are designed with performance keeping in mind, cracks are not. So we shouldn't expect high performance from these cracked software. Just my 2 cent. As recommendation I will go for these 1. i-series <=5th generation Intel processor, multi-cpu if possible 2. >=DD3 RAM as many as you can 3. SSD on top of HDD highly recommended 4. good PSU and power backup for long running operations 5. any decent nVidia card 6. a dual-monitor setup and a comfortable chair
  13. 83 satellite in one go! read on. Indian space agency ISRO is aiming for a world record by putting into orbit 83 satellites — two Indian and 81 foreign — on a single rocket in early 2017, a top official of Antrix Corporation said. He said the company’s order book stands at Rs 500 crore while negotiations are on for launch order for another Rs 500 crore. “During the first quarter of 2017 we plan to launch a single rocket carrying 83 satellites. Most foreign satellites are nano satellites,” Rakesh Sasibhushan, Chairman-cum-Managing Director of Antrix Corporation told IANS. Antrix Corporation is the commercial arm of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). He said all the 83 satellites will be put in a single orbit and hence there will not be any switching off and on of the rocket.The major challenge for the proposed mission is to hold the rocket in the same orbit till all the satellites are ejected. He said ISRO will use its Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle XL (PSLV-XL) rocket variant for the record launch. For ISRO, launch of multiple satellites at one go is not a new thing as it has done it several times in the past. According to Sasibhushan, the total payload/weight carried off into space by the PSLV-XL rocket will be around 1,600 kg. Citing non-disclosure agreements, Sasibhushan declined to name the clients whose satellites ISRO will put into orbit. He said some satellites belong to clients whose satellites ISRO put into orbit in the past. Meanwhile, ISRO is conducting high-altitude tests with its own cryogenic engine that is expected to power the heavier rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mk III (GSLV Mk III). The GSLV Mk III has a capacity to carry around four tonnes of load. The rocket is scheduled to be flown in January 2017. The GSLV Mk III rocket is expected to save precious foreign exchange for India as it pays to launch heavier satellites through foreign space agencies. In an interaction, ISRO Chairman A.S. Kiran Kumar said the agency is looking forward to develop four-tonne communication satellites that will give the same output as a six-tonner. http://indianexpress.com/article/technology/science/isro-aiming-for-world-record-planning-to-put-83-satellites-on-single-rocket-3728209/
