Assuming I have a terrain, as usual the terrain has ridges, creeks and all the characteristics that you can find on a real life map. Water flows from the top of the mountain into lower area, the path ...
Is there a way to determine what the difference in elevation is between two adjacent pixels? I am using an SRTM DEM to map faults. I am using the vertical error (>16m) as a criterion for the ...
Are there open access terrain pyramidal map tiles with a permissive usage license like OpenStreetMap's? I'm building aviation-related maps with Polymaps and need a good raster basemap. The Google ...
I am not sure whether this question belongs here. I think it belongs more to Geo-technical, but anyway, I just give it a shot. During earthwork development, earth terrain has to be cut ( if the ...
I want points for practicing triangulation algorithms. Just points with coordinates [X,Y] and elevation [Z] of real world terrain. I can use Google Maps Elevation API, but there is no method how to ...
is it possible to calculate shadow areas of buildings or simulate shadows of buildings in a city using e-cognition software, with the DSM of the buildings and the sun angle and azimuth known?....if ...
is it possible to use hillshade function in ArcMap to calculate shadow areas of buildings or simulate shadows of buildings, using DSM of the buildings and the sun angle and azimuth?
Because the default 'Profile Graph' tool was not sufficient, I wrote a custom VBA script that creates scaled and exaggerated profile cross-sections in ArcGIS but I need more features: Visualize more ...
I come across a 2008 tech presentation PDF on "GIS-Enabled Modeling and Simulation (GEMS) presented by ESRI (i think for the US Army). On one of the page titled "Challenges to be overcomed", there is ...
I looked at the ArcGIS ESRI website and find that 100% of the screenshots depicts a 2D map with at most relief shading. Is there any product ArcGIS or not that gives real 3D terrain visualisation ...
I'm looking for implementations of an algorithm called "Available Sky". ArcGIS (Spatial Analyst or GRID) is preferred, but solutions in GDAL, SAGA GIS or others are perfectly acceptable. The ...
