GDEM - a quick assessment

The first 30 m resolution global ASTER-based DEM (GDEM) has recently been released. This is now the most detailed global GIS layer with public access (read more). The GDEM was created by stereo-correlating the 1.3 million-scene ASTER archive of optical images, covering almost 98% of Earth's land surface (claimed 95% vertical accuracy: 20 meters, 95% horizontal accuracy: 30 meters). The one-by-one-degree tiles can be downloaded from NASA's EOS data archive and/or Japan's Ground Data System. The download of DEMs for large areas is at the moment difficult and limited to 100 tiles.

GI-Forum 2010

Jul 6 2010
Jul 9 2010


Location of event: University of Salzburg, Austria

The Salzburg University Centre for Geoinformatics together with GIScience at the Austrian Academy of Sciences is offering an annual forum to the worldwide geoinformatics community, bringing together English-speaking researchers and practitioners across disciplines and industries. Simultaneously, the GI_Forum connects participants into a well established co-located regional symposium -  Applied Geoinformatics (AGIT) - sharing the state-of-the art AGIT-EXPO exhibit.

The conference also wishes to attract submissions pertaining to digital terrain representation and analysis.

Please find attached the First Call for Papers.


Triangles and kebabs (from Geomorphometry 2009)

Sitting on a bench at a friend's house in Brest, France, I look at the windy landscape and think of triangles and kebabs - a strange combination of thoughts, I know, but its origin can be found in the last events of my life, as you will soon understand.

geomorphometry terrain toolbox

Short title: 

ArcInfo Arc Marco Language Code (AML) Geomorphometry Toolbox contains a collection of terrain analysis scripts which can be used with a installation of ArcInfo's Workstation. Please note: They are not working with ARCVIEW and also not directly with ArcGIS, even if it is possible to run AML Code from inside ArcGIS. Still, you need ArcInfo Work Station installed. For a quick start please refer to readme.txt for some command calls or to the outdated topomanual2.pdf.
