The 2010 Geological Society of America Annual Meeting will be held October 31st to November 3rd in Denver, CO. This year, there are a number of sessions related to LiDAR topography data, and OpenTopography team members will be making several presentations:
Today we corrected a significant bug in the OpenTopography point cloud access and processing system that was introduced at the OT 2.2 release two weeks ago. The bug, which we missed in beta testing, also went unreported by users over the past two weeks despite significantly impacting data products generated by OpenTopography.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce another update to our system. This release - OpenTopography v 2.2 - provides a much needed improvement to our standard digital elevation model (DEM) download interface. The new system makes it considerably easier to select and download many files at once, and also fixes issues that were causing stalled downloads in the previous system.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of 840 sq kilometers of LiDAR point cloud data collected between January 21st and January 27th, 2010, in response to the January 12th magnitude 7.0 Haiti earthquake.
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.
