    Join us for the monthly CenTex Mapathon to contribute to an OpenStreetMap project or recruit someone for your own. This event occurs every last Sunday of the month.





    Location: PCL Learning Lab 2.340 on the University of Texas Campus. After entering the building, go past the front desk and follow the signs to make a left to learning lab 2.


    Topic:

    OpenStreetMap or recruit people for your own project.

    OpenStreetMap is an opensource community using aerial imagery. Our topic for the month will be based on need. We will evaluate what is needed in the community prior to the event.

    OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, cafés, railway stations, and much more, all over the world.

    Local Knowledge - OpenStreetMap emphasizes local knowledge. Contributors use aerial imagery, GPS devices, and low-tech field maps to verify that OSM is accurate and up to date.

    Community Driven - OpenStreetMap's community is diverse, passionate, and growing every day. Our contributors include enthusiast mappers, GIS professionals, engineers running the OSM servers, humanitarians mapping disaster-affected areas, and many more.

    Open Data - OpenStreetMap is open data: you are free to use it for any purpose as long as you credit OpenStreetMap and its contributors. If you alter or build upon the data in certain ways, you may distribute the result only under the same license.

    What to do before the event:

    On the day of the event, laptops are available but bringing your own laptop is recommended. Introductions will be made from the respective representative for each project.

    Please note:
    If you would like to recruit people for your own project, please contact us so we can get you on the list.

    Going Beyond Where: A Discussion on LiDAR Platforms & Emerging Trends

    Presentation Outline: 

    Geospatial technologies continue to develop at nearly breakneck speeds. Each new technology brings its own unique approach to industry needs. LiDAR is not necessarily new, but it continues to grow in its capability. While LiDAR data historically has been deemed too cumbersome or unwieldy to manage, downstream users are now more capable than ever to leverage point cloud data.

     

    This presentation is about choosing the right tool in the toolbox. LiDAR data comes in many shapes and sizes. How the data was collected can vastly help (or hinder) your specific project. We will learn about different LiDAR methods including terrestrial, mobile, and aerial LiDAR – including UAS (drones)! We will explore how they’re related, what makes them different, and how to determine which is best for your project.
