This week, a paper by OpenTopography team members related to the design of the OpenTopography point cloud database system will be presented by Chaitan Baru at the 2010 International Conference on Scientific and Statistical Database Management (SSDBM) in Heidelberg, Germany.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of our updated LiDAR point cloud access and processing system: OpenTopography 2.0 (OT 2.0). This release has been available in beta for the past couple of weeks, but we've now fully migrated the functionality to the production OpenTopography point cloud system.
We are pleased to announce the 7th Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG) to be held August 9-13 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center on the University of California, San Diego campus.
Last week, as part of the Fifteenth Annual Science-Engineering-Technology Congressional Visits Day (SET CVD) program, OpenTopography presented a demonstration of LiDAR data on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.
OpenTopography may be unavailable Thursday, April 1st between 1 and 4 pm (Pacific) for system maintenance and testing. At times during this period the whole http://www.opentopography.org site may not be reachable.
Point cloud data downloads and custom DEM processing will be unavailable Friday evening, April 2nd due to a system backup.
We apologize for any inconvenience these outages may cause.
As promised in last week's release of new southern California and Washington EarthScope LiDAR data, the standard digital elevation models for the Yakima fold and thrust belt in central Washington are now available via the OpenTopography Standard DEM page.
