Open Source Geospatial Tools: Applications in Earth Observation (Earth Systems Data and Models)

Daniel McInerney


This ebook makes a speciality of using open resource software program for geospatial research. It demonstrates the effectiveness of the command line interface for dealing with either vector, raster and 3D geospatial info. applicable open-source instruments for info processing are sincerely defined and discusses how they are often used to unravel daily tasks.

A sequence of totally labored case reviews are provided together with vector spatial research, distant sensing info research, landcover category and LiDAR processing. A hands-on advent to the applying programming interface (API) of GDAL/OGR in Python/C++ is supplied for readers who are looking to expand present instruments and/or advance their very own software.
