HONORARY PATRONAGE

Postdoc Terrain Feature Modeling and Extraction for Mapping and Earth Resource Applications (USGS)

Sep 10 2014 19:24
America/Indiana/Indianapolis
USGS is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to study terrain processes and geomorphic development to model terrain features in support of extraction from lidar data for representation as a part of The National Map. Research Advisor: E. Lynn Usery, 573-308-3837. usery@usgs.gov.
Job description: 

The incumbent will be expected to develop models and use object oriented image analysis in conjunction with the lidar data to isolate and extract these features from lidar data (Li and others, 2012). The procedures for building specific geomorphic features from process modeling and ontology design patterns will be developed as part of the research. The work will be supported by ongoing work in the ontology of terrain features that has been a research focus for CEGIS for the past 5 years.

Requirements: 
Applicants must meet one of the following qualifications – Research Geographer, Research Physical Scientist, Research Cartographer

Proposal call for ‘TanDEM-X Intermediate DEM’ products

Mar 12 2014 09:00
Mar 12 2014 23:00
Europe/Amsterdam

Further Information & Instructions:

The Intermediate DEM (IDEM) is a product derived exclusively from acquisitions of the first global coverage. The first global coverage typically uses only one baseline configuration for acquiring each scene. Please be aware that the intermediate DEM product might have data gaps, omitting scenes where a reasonable accuracy cannot be achieved by a single interferometric acquisition. An increased height error compared to the final and global TanDEM-X DEM product is expected.

Venue: 
Microwaves and Radar Institute Weßling
