  3. Intel announced a new family of “Core X” desktop processors at Computex yesterday, offering even more powerful versions of its existing Core i5 and Core i7 models, along with a new, top-of-the-line Core i9 line for those who want even more firepower. Last year at Computex, Intel unveiled its first 10-core consumer CPU, the company's move into the world of a "megatasking." It was a pricey chip, launching at around $1,700, but it satisfied users who needed to juggle several intensive tasks at once. Now, Intel is upping the ante with a new family of processors for enthusiasts, the Core X-series, and it's anchored by the company's first 18-core CPU, the i9-7980XE. Priced at $1,999, the 7980XE is clearly not a chip you'll see in an average desktop. Instead, it's more of a statement from Intel. It beats out AMD's 16-core Threadripper CPU, which was slated to be that company's most powerful consumer processor for 2017. And it gives Intel yet another way to satisfy the demands of power-hungry users who might want to do things like play games in 4K while broadcasting them in HD over Twitch. And, as if its massive core count wasn't enough, the i9-7980XE is also the first Intel consumer chip that packs in over a teraflop's worth of computing power. If 18 cores is a bit too rich for you, Intel also has other Core i9 Extreme Edition chips in 10-, 12-, 14- and 16-core variants. Perhaps the best news for hardware geeks: The 10 core i9-7900X will retail for $999, a significant discount from last year's version. All of the i9 chips feature base clock speeds of 3.3GHz, reaching up to 4.3GHz dual-core speeds with Turbo Boost 2.0 and 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost 3.0. And speaking of Turbo Boost 3.0, its performance has also been improved in the new Extreme Edition chips to increase both single and dual-core speeds. Rounding out the X-Series family are the quad-core i5-7640X and i7 models in 4-, 6- and 8-core models. While it might all seem like overkill, Intel says its Core i9 lineup was driven by the surprising demand for last year's 10-core chip. "Broadwell-E was kind of an experiment," an Intel spokesperson told Engadget. "It sold ... proving that our enthusiast community will go after the best of the best... Yes, we're adding higher core count, but we're also introducing lower core counts. Scalability on both ends are what we went after." As you can imagine, stuffing more cores into a processor leads to some significant heat issues. For that reason, Intel developed its own liquid cooling solution, which will work across these new chips, as well as some previous generations. All of the new Core i9 processors, along with the 6- and 8-core i7 chips, feature scorching hot 140W thermal design points (TDPs), the maximum amount of power that they'll draw. That's the same as last year's 10-core CPU, but it's still well above the 91W TDP from Intel's more affordable i7-7700K. Over the past few years, Intel's laptop chips have been far more interesting than its desktop CPUs. Partially, that's because the rise of ultraportables and convertible laptops have shifted its focus away from delivering as much computing power as possible, to offering a reasonable amount of processing power efficiently. The new Core i9 X-series processors might not be feasible for most consumers, but for the hardware geeks who treat their rigs like hot rods, they're a dream come true. Source - Engadget, The Verge
  4. Try Mapbox. Mapbox will let you build your map from scratch and manage the resources at your will. Mapbox is not free, for that you'll need something like Mapserver.
  5. Visual Studio for Mac

    The full version of community, pro and essential is now available.
  6. You have to identify 4 more points from the xy location. Just set a fixed euclidean distance from that point and draw four other point who have same distance from their neighbors. The distance should not exceed the image size. Than let the program identify their xy locations. More ideas are here - Georeferencing aerial photos when only centroid is known using ArcGIS for Desktop or ERDAS Imagine? I think you cannot do it with elevation.
  7. This is the new Google Earth

    No news yet..
  8. NASA updated their photo archive

    NASA launched an updated image and video library website with their entire archive at the fingertip. The new website does not need you to enter which archive you want to browse, is it Cassiny, or Hubble, or JPL. Check this out. Full resolution version of the image above
  9. GIS Virtual Machines

    Vagrant boxes are publicly available VMs, like Homestead. If you are sharing a proprietary VM, I wouldn't recommend this.
  10. GIS Virtual Machines

    Thanks in advance. I would recommend creating a lightweight and headless vagrant box, there are no good box currently available like this. Lubuntu might me a better option.
  11. Windows 10 Creators update

    MS says it could be an incompatibility issue.
  12. Windows 10 Creators update

  13. Windows 10 Creators update

    Windows 10 latest big update called 'Creators update' has been released. After much tweaking and fixing, the new creators updated brings a lot of new tool for everyone to try. Take a look at the special features it has. Cortana setup If you are setting up windows for the first time, you'll now meet Cortana to guide you to the setup process. The entire process of setting up Windows 10 has been greatly simplified, especially if you compare it to how long and complicated it took to get a Windows Vista machine ready just 10 years ago. Game mode Microsoft is focusing on improving the gaming experience in Windows 10 Creators Update. A new Game Mode in the Xbox app will prioritize CPU and GPU resources for a game. It’s designed to reduce background tasks and other apps from hogging all the system resources, and ultimately make sure that games run as best as they can on a Windows 10 PC. Microsoft has also added Beam streaming (similar to Twitch) to the Xbox app for Windows 10, so all users have the ability to stream their gaming sessions to friends. Game Mode will need to be enabled on a game-by-game basis, but publishers should be able to enable it automatically in the future. Game Mode is enabled by default in Windows 10 Creators Update. Picture-in-picture Microsoft is adding picture-in-picture support to its Universal Windows Apps. The built-in Movies & TV app allows you to watch a film or TV show and pop the window out so it’s always on top, and Skype will place calls above other windows. It’s similar to features on iOS or Android, and you can keep watching content while you browse or work in other apps. Only some of Microsoft's own apps support picture-in-picture right now, but all developers will be able to include the feature in app updates. Night light Microsoft has built its own version of F.lux into Windows 10 with the Creators Update. Dubbed Night Light, you can allow Windows 10 to reduce blue light from a screen after sunset or at a specific time in the evening. It’s much like what’s already available on iOS, macOS, and Android, but at least you don’t need a third-party app to enable this on Windows anymore. Dynamic Lock Dynamic Lock is a new Windows 10 feature that’s designed to be the opposite of Windows Hello. Known internally at Microsoft as “Windows Goodbye,” Dynamic Lock lets you automatically lock a Windows 10 PC when you’re away from it. You can pair Bluetooth devices like a phone or wearable, and Windows 10 will sense once the Bluetooth connection is too far away and lock the PC. Paint 3D Microsoft’s Creators Update for Windows 10 is designed with 3D in mind. Although there aren’t many creative features in the OS update generally, Paint 3D is the obvious addition. As the name suggests, it’s a 3D version of Microsoft’s built-in Paint app, and it’s totally rebuilt and modern. You can build 3D objects in Paint 3D or import ones created by community members from Remix 3D. It’s also a lot more touch-friendly than the regular Paint app, and you can use a stylus like the Surface Pen to annotate and create objects. Once you’re finished with a Paint 3D creation, it can easily be shared to the Remix 3D site or even used on a Windows Mixed Reality headset or HoloLens. Windows photos Although it’s not strictly a Windows 10 Creators Update feature, Microsoft has updated its Photos app recently to support inking. It’s a much-needed addition that lets you pick a photo and annotate it and share it easily via email or social networks. Unfortunately, inking in Windows 10 Creators Update still isn’t everywhere. Even in apps like the built-in email client, you can’t simply jot notes down inside an email or annotate an attached image. Microsoft has a long way to go to bring inking to the center of Windows 10, but features like inking in the Photos app and Windows Ink are a sign it might eventually happen. Windows Hello One surprising addition to the Windows 10 Creators Update is the fact that Windows Hello gets faster. Microsoft has improved the recognition process for facial scanning, and the new setup process shows you exactly how Windows Hello scans your face to detect who you are. The result is a much speedier Windows Hello login process. Edge Microsoft is tweaking its Edge browser with the Creators Update. A new feature lets you set tabs aside and save them for use later on. It’s essentially a method to save a snapshot of your current browser window. If you’re a heavy user of tabs then it’s a welcome feature, but for everyone else the new buttons that enable the feature are likely to be confusing. Microsoft is also adding ebook support and the ability to view 360 videos to Edge. You can download and purchase ebooks through the Windows Store, and sample 360 videos are available in the Movies & TV app. Updates and privacy One of the smaller changes in Windows 10 Creators Update will have a big impact for those wishing to better control updates. You can now pause updates for a week, or configure active hours in Windows 10 for up to 18 hours a day. This should reduce complaints about Windows 10 automatically rebooting machines for updates, and provide the ability for users to control them better. Microsoft is also tweaking its privacy controls in Windows 10 Creators Update. You’ll be prompted to review and configure features like diagnostics, speech recognition, location, and relevant ads. It’s part of Microsoft attempts to be more transparent, and a response to some widespread criticism over Windows 10’s privacy controls. Overall, the Creators Update doesn't have a lot in it and isn't nearly as comprehensive as last year's Anniversary Update. Microsoft has another major update planned for later this year, which should include a lot of notable new features and design improvements. Download the update Source - The Verge, The Microsoft blog
  14. Percent tree cover for the dry season?

    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?
