  1. I'm not 100% sure to understand what you want to create, usually in ArcScene you can set the raster (DEM) as a the terrain reference for your shapefile with the polygons (Right-Click on the Polygon in ArcScene > Properties > Base Height : set Floating on a custom surface (and here take the DEM, which have to be in a projected coordinate system). Then you set a Layer offset
  2. cool, but costly. i would better recommend https://apps.sentinel-hub.com/eo-browser/?
  3. hi maggis, eos is cool but you have to pay in order to get more than 2 image / day isn't?
  4. does anyone has experience with https://www.opendronemap.org/ ? for example with the WebODM
  5. You can also see some of the video directly on youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHGMBrXUzClgjEzBMei-Jdw To the serie

  8. https://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Global_datasets Raster data Elevation data ASTER topography (GDEM V1) Improved ASTER GDEM 1 from 2009: GDEM global 30m elevation calculated from stereo-pair images collected by the Terra satellite. "This is the most complete, consistent global digital elevation data yet made available to the world." This is a very new dataset, at version 1 (treat as experimental). Accuracy will be improved in forthcoming versions (validation with SRTM, etc.; see assessment here and here). pre-release announcement NASA press release Warehouse Inventory Search Tool or Easy search tool (Data download) Tutorial: ASTER topography See also: ASTER GDEM 30m quality assessment ASTER topography (GDEM V2) Improved ASTER GDEM 2 from 2011: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/products/aster_products_table/astgtm The ASTER GDEM covers land surfaces between 83°N and 83°S and is comprised of 22,702 tiles. Tiles that contain at least 0.01% land area are included. The ASTER GDEM is distributed as Geographic Tagged Image File Format (GeoTIFF) files with geographic coordinates (latitude, longitude). The data are posted on a 1 arc-second (approximately 30–m at the equator) grid and referenced to the 1984 World Geodetic System (WGS84)/ 1996 Earth Gravitational Model (EGM96) geoid. Notes: this DEM can be rather well filtered and smoothed with the Sun's denoising algorithm (using GDAL and free / open source program <mdenoise> or simply GRASS add-on r.denoise. Experiments showed that the best smoothing of ASTER GDEM 2 is reached with such parameters of <mdenoise>: threshold = 0.8 iterations = 10-20 Also filtering with r.neighbors by "average" method and window size >=5 is quite useful to remove some noise from DEM.

ETOPO1 (DEM) http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/global/ The cell registered version can be loaded directly into a lat/lon location. GRASS raster data is cell registered (see the GRASS raster semantics page) Special care must be taken with the grid registered version. It can not be loaded directly into a lat/lon location as the parameters found in the .hdr file exceed the limits of polar coordinate space: they have N,S rows which go 1/2 a cell beyond 90 latitude, when considered in the cell registered convention. So the data needs to have those 90deg N,S rows cropped away, and while we're at it we crop away a redundant overlapping column at 180 longitude. To do this we have to first tell the GIS a little fib during import to squeeze the data into lat/lon space, then crop away the spurious rows and column, then finally reset the resulting map's bounds to its true extent. # Import grid registered binary float, fibbing about its true extent r.in.bin -f in=etopo1_bed_g.flt out=etopo1_bed_g.raw \ n=90 s=-90 e=180 w=-180 rows=10801 cols=21601 anull=-9999 # reduce the working region by 1 cell g.region rast=etopo1_bed_g.raw eval `g.region -g` g.region n=n-$nsres s=s+$nsres e=e-$ewres -p # save smaller raster and remove original r.mapcalc "etopo1_bed_g.crop = etopo1_bed_g.raw" g.remove etopo1_bed_g.raw # re-establish the correct bounds, now that they'll fit r.region etopo1_bed_g.crop n=89:59:30N s=89:59:30S w=179:59:30E e=179:59:30E g.region rast=etopo1_bed_g.crop # check that N,S,E,W and Res are all nice and clean: r.info etopo1_bed_g.crop # looks good, so accept the results by resetting the map name g.rename etopo1_bed_g.crop,etopo1_bed_g # set to use appropriate color rules r.colors etopo1_bed_g color=etopo2 # set the 'units' metadata field (for elevation data contained within the map) r.support etopo1_bed_g units=meters For the problematic grid registered version, the resulting r.info report should look like: | Rows: 10799 | | Columns: 21600 | | Total Cells: 233258400 | | Projection: Latitude-Longitude | | N: 89:59:30N S: 89:59:30S Res: 0:01 | | E: 179:59:30E W: 179:59:30E Res: 0:01 | | Range of data: min = -10898 max = 8271 | (the east and west bounds of the map touch 1/2 a cell west of 180 longitude) For the problematic grid registered version, since the data's grid is 1/2 a cell shifted from nicely rounded 1 arc-minutes (0:01), you'll need to ensure that the mapset's region preserves that alignment after zooming or panning: g.region align=etopo1_bed_g -p (or oversample and set the region resolution to 1/2 arc-minutes (0:00:30), which will be four times as slow) ETOPO2 (DEM) See the ETOPO2 (2' global) article by M.H. Bowman in the GRASS Newsletter, 1:8-11, August 2004. ETOPO2v2 data download (take for example the ETOPO2v2g_f4_LSB.flt file) GTOPO30 (DEM) Data download - Import with r.in.gdal. Note: To avoid that the GTOPO30 data are read incorrectly, you can add a new line "PIXELTYPE SIGNEDINT" in the .HDR to force interpretation of the file as signed rather than unsigned integers. Then the .DEM file can be imported. Finally, e.g. the 'terrain' color table can be assigned to the imported map with r.colors.

The grid resolution is 30 seconds which is roughly one kilometer (1 km). Land data are based on the 1-km averages of topography derived from the USGS SRTM30 grided DEM data product created with data from the NASA Shuttle Radar Topography Mission. GTOPO30 data are used for high latitudes where SRTM data are not available. Ocean data are based on the Smith and Sandwell global 2-minute grid between latitudes +/- 72 degrees. Higher resolution grids have been added from the LDEO Ridge Multibeam Synthesis Project and the NGDC Coastal Relief Model. Arctic bathymetry is from the International Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (IBCAO). All data are derived from public domain sources and these data are also in the public domain. GRASS 6 script r.in.srtm described in GRASSNews vol. 3 won't work with this dataset (as it was made for the original SRTM HGT files).

Opening the file in access, the data is found in the query "HWSD_Q". Save this query in .csv format (with a name like "HWSD_Q.csv") so that it may then be imported into GRASS. After that, it is necessary to replace the commas with dots (find & replace) in the .csv file. Before you can import it, you also need a file "HWSD_Q.csvt", which contains a single line listing the type for each column in the database: "Integer","String","Integer","Integer","Integer","String","Integer","Integer","Real","Integer","String","Integer","String","Integer","String","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Integer","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real","Real" With both the .csv and the .csvt file in the same directory, you can then import them into GRASS: db.in.ogr input=~/grassdata/hwsd/HWSD_Q.csv output=hwsdData The data cannot be connected directly to the raster, it must be converted to a vector first: g.region raster=hwSoil r.to.vect -v input=hwSoil output=hwSoil feature=area v.db.droptable hwSoil db.droptable -f hwSoil # delete the table completely Note that the table includes multiple rows for each polygon, corresponding to the dominant and various numbers of subdominant soils. To select only the dominant soil layer: db.select table=hwsdData sql='select * from hwsdData where SEQ = 1' \ output=domSoil.csv separator=, This saves a copy of the table that contains only the dominant soil type for each polygon as domSoil.csv. This needs to be reloaded into the GRASS database. Since it has the same columns as HWSD_Q.csv, we can use the labels for that file: cp HWSD_Q.csvt domSoil.csvt Then we can load domSoil.csv: db.in.ogr \ input=~/grassdata/downloads/harmonized_world_soil_database/domSoil.csv \ output=domSoil Now at last we can connect the database to the vector file: v.db.connect -o map=hwsd table=domSoil driver=sqlite key=MU_GLOBAL To create a new raster map taking the values from the table: g.region raster=hwSoil ## make sure we get the whole map v.to.rast in=hwSoil out=T_SAND col=T_SAND SoilGrids.org 250m soil taxonomy map SoilGrids is a system for automated soil mapping based on global soil profile and environmental covariate data.

Besides long-term average climate layers (representing the period 1950 - 2000) it also includes projections for future conditions based on downscaled global climate model (GCM) data from CMIP5 (IPPC Fifth Assessment) and projections of past conditions (downscaled global climate model output). Load into a Lat/Lon WGS84 location (EPSG:4326) The data set is provided in two formats: BIL and ESRI Grd. Import with r.in.bin or r.in.gdal. Version 1.4 has some coordinate issues: a) BIL: binary format is 2 byte integer. Multiply by 10 using r.mapcalc to convert units. See http://www.worldclim.org/format.htm for more information and the MODIS help page for example of converting raw to data units. Note that the file header is missing a line. To fix: # fix WorldClim's BIL; tmean example for i in $(seq 1 12); do echo “PIXELTYPE SIGNEDINT” >>tmean$i.hdr; done b) ESRI grd files: Note that the WorldClim ESRI grd files suffer from a quality issue of coordinate precision.

    Hello everyone, there is a Terrain Model I wasn't aware of, so I would like to share with you some links. For Global project, I usually GTOPO30 as a global DTM, but recently I discovered GMTED2010 (Global Multi-resolution Terrain Elevation Data 2010 ) a free avaIlable data model of the world at 250m, 500m and 1km resolution. GMTED2010 provides a new level of detail in global topographic data. Previously, the best available global DEM was GTOPO30 with a horizontal grid spacing of 30 arc-seconds. The GMTED2010 product suite contains seven new raster elevation products for each of the 30-, 15-, and 7.5-arc-second spatial resolutions and incorporates the current best available global elevation data. The new elevation products have been produced using the following aggregation methods: minimum elevation, maximum elevation, mean elevation, median elevation, standard deviation of elevation, systematic subsample, and breakline emphasis. Metadata have also been produced to identify the source and attributes of all the input elevation data used to derive the output products. Many of these products will be suitable for various regional features for hydrologic modeling, and geometric and radiometand continental applications, such as climate modeling, continental-scale land cover mapping, extraction of drainage ric correction of medium and coarse resolution satellite image data. The global aggregated vertical accuracy of GMTED2010 can be summarized in terms of the resolution and RMSE of the products with respect to a global set of control points (estimated global accuracy of 6 m RMSE) provided by NGA. At 30 arc-seconds, the GMTED2010 RMSE range is between 25 and 42 meters; at 15 arc-seconds, the RMSE range is between 29 and 32 meters; and at 7.5 arc-seconds, the RMSE range is between 26 and 30 meters. GMTED2010 is a major improvement in consistency and vertical accuracy over GTOPO30, which has a 66 m RMSE globally compared to the same NGA control points. In areas where new sources of higher resolution data were available, the GMTED2010 products are substantially better than the aggregated global statistics; however, large areas still exist, particularly above 60 degrees North latitude, that lack good elevation data. As new data become available, especially in areas that have poor coverage in the current model, it is hoped that new versions of GMTED2010 might generated and thus gradually improve the global model.

  11. Hi, you can download the imagery from Earthexplorer https://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/ some informations can be found here : https://lta.cr.usgs.gov/declass_3
  12. hi, well a lot depends on the used plugin (for example i do like Quickmapservice) and you also have to consider not to change the projection of the map (has to be EPSG:3857)
