About

Open source applications are changing GIS, cartography, web mapping, and map publishing, creating a powerful infrastructure for new tools that has thrown open the door of what’s possible in geo. This one day conference will introduce you to these tools, show you what you can do with them, and walk through how and why government agencies are using them to dramatically improve their mapping, cartography, and GIS projects

Tracks

The two track conference will feature a series of case studies of successful open source implementations; high level discussions around topics like getting open source into federal agencies, using geospatial data in policy decisions, and open data; and technology showcases walking through how specific technologies can be used, what they do, and how to get started using them.

Speakers include (not finalized ):

    Mike Byrne, FCC
    Josh Campbell, U.S. Department of State
    Liz Barry, Public Labs
    Alex Barth, MapBox
    Ben Tuttle, NGA

Leica RCD30: Better Resolution with More Details for 3D City Modeling

Leica RCD30: Better Resolution with More Details for 3D City Modeling

(Norcross,GA, 6 October, 2014) – Leica Geosystems’ RCD30 Penta Oblique system is now available with new optics. Compared to the previous configuration, which consists of lenses with 50 mm focal length for nadir and 80 mm for oblique images, the camera isnow available with 80 mm and 150 mm focal length respectively.  In combination with the new 80 MP CCD sensor, the RCD30 nowprovides data with even more detail. These new features make the RCD30 the only oblique system able to acquire 4-channel RGBNmultispectral data with 10 centimeter Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) from an altitude of 3,000 meters. No other camera on the market today offers these performance parameters. Compared to other systems, users can fly higher and achieve the same high resolution. […]
