10:00 - 13:00 Query the Planet: Geospatial Big Data Analytics Using Open Source Tools from Large Technology Companies Both Facebook's Presto and ESRI's Geometry API for Java were made open in 2013. In 2016, an Uber engineer, Zhenxiao Luo, who had worked with Presto while at Netflix, combined the two to support distributed spatial SQL. Later that same year, AWS announced a new service called Amazon Athena, a fully managed Presto service that makes it easy to run interactive SQL against BIG data in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). Athena now supports those same geospatial functions powered by ESRI's Geometry...

Provide Feedback Data Visualization & Cartography in QGIS This workshop will be a tour of the wide range of data visualization/styling and cartographic techniques now available in QGIS 3. QGIS has seen remarkable growth in these areas in recent years. Tips and tricks will be covered as we work through a series of data visualization exercises. Topics covered will include: working with labels, use cases for blending modes, live layer effects, atlas generation, virtual layers, animating temporal data via the Time Manager plugin, and creating 3D views. Along the way many of the new renderers will be covered such as geometry generators, inverted... Data Visualization & Cartography in QGIS My Schedule Please sign in to add a session to your schedule. Provide Feedback R Studio as a Traditional Desktop GIS Replacement R is a deeply open source language with a welcoming community of contributors and powerful tools for data analysis. R Studio makes doing day to day geospatial analysis a joy. The interface uses design idioms similar to traditional GIS Desktop software but with a focus on repeatability, analysis, and speed. For nearly 15 years, the R 'sp' package (auth:Edzer Pebesma) was one of the most commonly used geospatial R packages.  In 2017, Pebesma made substantial enhancements to a replacement package to 'sp' called 'sf' which used the OGC simple features...

Provide Feedback Mapping with Flying Robots: 3D reconstruction through photogrammetric alchemy OpenDroneMap is free and open source photogrammetry toolkit targeted at low flying aircraft imagery processing. OpenDroneMap has made great strides in the last few years toward feature parity with closed-source commercial software. New advancements are moving beyond feature parity into implentation state-of-the-art algorithms, processing workflows, and the real promise of FOSS photogrammetry -- massive scaling potential. This workshop will have two components: drone flight planning followed by a software processing session. For the first half of the workshop, we will go over...

Provide Feedback Web 3D Geospatial Made Easy: An Introduction to Cesium Why settle for 2D maps? 3D geospatial unlocks a world of new features, such as analytical visualizations, dynamic shadows, accurate terrain, 3D models, and more. This hands-on workshop will introduce any level of developer to Cesium, the leading open-source JavaScript library for 3D geospatial visualization on the web. Cesium provides a lightweight, but expressive set of tools for building 3D map applications for any platform using industry-standard vector data formats such as KML, GeoJSON and TopoJSON. By providing a set of readable 3D-scene data formats and code examples,... Web 3D Geospatial Made Easy: An Introduction to Cesium My Schedule Please sign in to add a session to your schedule.

14:00 - 17:00 Point Cloud Processing and Analysis with PDAL PDAL is the Point Data Abstraction Library, and it is used to provide data access and processing tools for geospatial point cloud data such as those that come from LiDAR or 3D imaging. Common workflows for LiDAR data include transforming coordinate systems, filtering data for density, computing boundaries, classifying ground, interacting with web services, and rasterizing DTMs from the point clouds. We will cover these topics and more in the workshop. You can browse the workshop materials online at https://www.pdal.io/workshop/index.html PDAL is available via OSGeo4W64, Debian...

Provide Feedback Running your own Vector Tiles Stack As the use of Vector Tiles has exploded in the past few years, more and more use cases have emerged that require setting up an ‘end to end’ stack for preparing, serving and consuming vector tiles in a web application. While many projects may be able to simply use basemap tiles from a CDN provided by a service provider, many other use cases call for serving vector tiles from existing and often private datasets or databases. This workshop will walk the participant through the process of preparing data for serving as vector tiles, loading and optimizing the database and...

Provide Feedback MapD for Analysts: Visualizing Your Geospatial Data on GPUs There has been an explosion of geospatial data soures and collection in recent years, and with it the need for technologies that data analysts can use to query and visualize those very large data sets interactively, exploring and taking action on the data in real-time. Using the open source MapD SQL engine and MapD analytics platform, you can eliminate waiting for slow reports, downsampling, and pre-aggregating, and put the power of the GPU to use in rendering your complex geospatial charts and plots. In this workshop, participants will be given access to a MapD instance, and...

Provide Feedback Internet of Things Made Easy with OGC SensorThings API - From Sensors to Dashboards in 15 minutes This workshop will give a hands-on tutorial of the OGC® SensorThings API, an OGC standard API that simplifies and accelerates the development of Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The OGC SensorThings API has been very quickly and widely adopted around the world. There are more than eight server implementations, including both open source and proprietary, and many many more client implementations. By 2020, approximately 50 billion small sensors and actuators will be embedded in real-world objects and connected to the Internet, thus forming the Internet of Things (IoT)....

Provide Feedback Introduction to running Auto Scaling Geoserver and PostgreSQL/PostGIS in the Cloud (AWS) This lab will provide an introduction to running GeoServer on AWS infrastructure. GeoServer is a OGC compliant implementation of a number of open standards including Web Feature Service (WFS), Web Map Service (WMS), and Web Coverage Service (WCS). The workshop will walk you through the steps required to launch and configure an Ubuntu Linux virtual machine in the Cloud. You will install GeoServer on this instance and learn how to save the virtual machine image as your own. GeoServer can leverage a variety of data sources including ...
