The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego, in collaboration with Boulder, CO-based UNAVCO and the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) have been awarded a NASA ACCESS grant to develop a cyberinfrastructure platform for discovery, access, and visualization of data from NASA’s ICESat and upcoming ICESat
OpenTopography is proud to announce the availability of three new global topographic datasets:
Continuing our collaboration with Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), OpenTopography is pleased to announce the availability of lidar point cloud data from the coast near Kaikoura, Northern Canterbury, New Zealand.
Come connect with OpenTopography at the 2016 American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco! OpenTopography will be in booth #513 on "NSF Street" in the exhibit hall. The booth is shared with the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM). Our booth is staffed by the OpenTopography team and community members, and is a great chance to ask questions, provide feedback, or to discuss lidar, high resolution topography, and cyberinfrastructure.
OpenTopography is happy to announce the release of over a dozen new datasets. Eight of these datasets were collected by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) as part of their seed grant program. NCALM is an NSF-funded center that supports the use of airborne laser mapping technology (a.k.a.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of two new photogrammetric datasets derived from the Pleiades 1A and 1B satellites. These datasets are unique among those provided through OpenTopography, as the point clouds were created using stereo imagery taken from space and not using lidar technology.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of two new datasets in New Zealand.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of a number of updates and improvements to the OpenTopography system. This release adds several new features to enhance data discovery, processing, and site usability.
In addition to bug fixes and minor updates, this release includes the following features:
Enhanced site search
We're pleased to announce that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has renewed funding for OpenTopography, a science gateway that provides online access to Earth science oriented high-resolution topography data and processing tools.
