USGIF Technology Day Hands-On Training: More Effective Use of Geospatial Intelligence Workflows in Disaster Relief Efforts
May 20th, 2013 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
Following is a guest post from Rob Mott, Vice President, Geospatial Solutions for Intergraph Government Solutions.
Each year, the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) hosts its GEOINT Community Week, which brings together members of the defense, intelligence, homeland security, and geospatial communities for a week of briefings, educational sessions, workshops, and much more.
This year, Intergraph will be playing an instrumental role by hosting a unique training workshop that focuses on the effective use of geospatial intelligence workflows for disaster relief efforts.
On May 23rd at 8:30 a.m., Andrew Pursch, Technical Staff Consultant for Intergraph Government Solutions, will be highlighting how key geospatial solutions can help government agencies better respond to and mitigate natural disasters, which globally affects thousands of people and destroy billions of dollars in property every year.
This hands-on training will address these issues and introduce the users to a set of techniques and tools via ERDAS Imagine 2013 for processing data, performing analysis and improving decision making.
The workshop will show how this unique geospatial data authoring system aids analysts in easily developing powerful geospatial products, such as 3D models, maps, and reports that support a number of critical activities. These include visualizing damaged areas, understanding changes that have taken place over time, and planning delivery of relief supplies, safe evacuations, and reconstruction efforts.
Mr. Pursch will also be leading the students through a series of exercises to effectively work with complex geospatial data types, such as creating high-density point clouds from high-resolution stereo pair imagery, which will allow the user to model and visualize an area of interest.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn more about how key geospatial solutions can help the federal government better prepare for and respond to the challenges disasters create.
