Webinar: Geospatial Data Act of 2017

Online
August 29, 2017 (Tuesday) 1PM – 2PM CT

John Wertman from the American Association of Geographers (AAG) will lead a webinar on the Geospatial Data Act (GDA), legislation that could effectively exclude everyone but licensed architects, engineers, and surveyors from federal government contracts for GIS and mapping services of all kinds – not just those services traditionally provided by surveyors. The GDA is primarily focused on reauthorizing and implement several key federal geospatial data programs.  The bill, however, also includes provisions creating a system of exclusionary procurement that would prevent most companies and organizations in the dynamic and rapidly growing GIS and mapping sector from receiving federal contracts for a very-wide range of activities, including GPS field data collection, GIS, internet mapping, geospatial analysis, location based services, remote sensing, academic research involving maps, and digital or manual map making or cartography of almost any type.

Join this informative webinar to learn more about the GDA and how organizations have been responding to the legislation.

Free Webinar: Introduction to Remote Sensing of Harmful Algal Blooms

Online
September 2-26, 2017 (Tuesday – Tuesday) 11AM–12AM and 9PM–10PM EDT

Harmful algal blooms (HABs) can have a negative impact on the ecosystem and human health. Satellite remote sensing is able to collect data frequently and over a large area to identify impaired water quality from HABs. This data can inform decision-makers on where best to put their resources for taking water samples, determine what toxins are in the water, whether they need to change or move drinking water intakes, and whether a fishery needs to be closed. Remote sensing data enables individuals and organizations to have more flexible plans for water sampling. It also leads to a more efficient and appropriate allocation of resources for protecting human health. Register here.

Vancouver GIS Users Group Speaker Night

Vancouver, British Columbia
September 13, 2017 (Wednesday) 5:30PM

Understanding the extent of poppy cultivation, and opium yield provides, crucial information that permits governments to make policy decisions related to farmer motivations, alternative livelihood opportunities and possible law enforcement measures. In conflict zones, implementing a ground-based survey is problematic. Earth Observation data is a key source of unbiased data that allows analysts to collect data over vast land areas, independent of security concerns. This presentation provides an overview of how EO data can be used to estimate opium poppy cultivation. Jamie Gairns has worked in the field of geomatics for over 20 years, using optical and synthetic aperture radar imagery for a wide range of applications. From 2003 to 2006, he lived in Afghanistan where he first worked for the United Nations Office for Drugs and Crime and managed the annual opium poppy survey, and then for the Afghan Ministry of Counter Narcotics in a capacity building role, supporting field data collection and annual eradication efforts.

Free Webinar: Making Sense of the Big Data That is Your Road/Street Network

Online
October 17, 2017 (Tuesday) 1PM – 2PM ET

A municipal road network is complex. Not just in the quantity of streets and intersections, but of all the information that “hangs off” every section of road. Some are obvious such as the pavement type, or light poles. Others are less obvious such as the median barrier, or culvert headwalls. Some are even invisible like storm sewer pipes or traffic sensors. Add onto that a plethora of intangible pieces of data like collision history, pavement condition, speed limits, 911 address points, emergency detour routes, and the list goes on and on.

This webinar will investigate how a spatially and linearly enabled road management system can accommodate all of these requirements while making road network information accessible to more people in the environment. We will also investigate how spatial Business Intelligence tools can interpret the data to gain useful and actionable insight into a highly complex road network. Register here.
