Conflating New Vector Data into Legacy Data Layers

Friday, June 12, 1-2 p.m. EDT
L3Harris Technologies

How do you add and connect new map features to legacy geospatial data layers without damaging the geometry or attributes of baseline data? This is the challenge of the conflation process for vector geospatial data. This course will introduce the issues and potential solutions involved with fusing datasets which may have been created at different times and with different levels of precision. Participants will learn about procedures for matching and transforming data and will be given overviews of toolsets that exist for automated conflation processing. Read full overview.


Using OGC Web Services to Harness the Power of IoT Data

Thursday, June 18, 1-2 p.m. EDT
Hexagon US Federal

The students will use Hexagon’s Luciad Platform to learn key concepts and techniques. The Platform is provided both as an end-user product usable out-of-the-box and as a software development kit including a customizable REST API. Out-of-the box, the solution supports over 200 geospatial data formats including point clouds and reality 3D meshes. With just a few clicks, data can be discovered, cataloged, combined into a product, and published as OGC web services. The associated development kit enables software engineers to rapidly satisfy their end users unique and rapidly changing data, visualization, and analytics requirements. Read full overview.


3D Reconstruction from Overhead Imagery using Open Source Software

Tuesday, June 23, 1-2 p.m. EDT

Geospatial 3D models of buildings and terrain are a critical asset to the GEOINT community. However, acquiring such models has historically been costly, requiring either labor intensive manual modeling or expensive active scanners like LiDAR. Over the past fifteen years there has been a shift toward automated 3D model generation from passive sensors including UAS video and satellite imagery, each of which allow data collection over broader areas at a lower cost. In this session we will give a brief introduction to 3D reconstruction from images and describe the terminology and common stages of processing. We will explain how data collection parameters impact model quality. We will survey available software packages. We Will conclude with a live demonstration of the open source TeleSculptor application for extracting 3D from full motion video (FMV). Read full overview.
