ERDAS IMAGINE Training 2022 hosted by Hexagon: March 9th, 2022

Join us in this training to learn about some of the latest and greatest features in ERDAS IMAGINE!  With the exponentially increasing amount of data being collected in the world today, customized repeatable, batchable workflows are needed to extract as much valuable information from raw data as possible.  The Spatial Modeler is the key to setting up these types of workflows.  The creation of spatial models and the use of AI, machine learning and deep learning allow more data to be processed, classified, and utilized.    

In 2020 Update 2, a new DSM extractor was added.  Hexagon's own SGM algorithm is used in photogrammetric processing to extract high resolution point clouds from satellite, aerial and UAV imagery.    

In 2022, ERDAS IMAGINE has added automatic Co-registration as a spatial model operator to seamlessly integrate misaligned datasets into more complex change detection and mosaicked workflows.   

Another feature to continue advancing deep learning methods added was Semantic Segmentation.  This is a pixel by pixel application to categorize each pixel belonging to one of the trained classes.  This achieves pixel level precision and most reflects the traditional remote sensing supervised classification results, but using deep learning technicques.  The spatial modeler workflow allows the analyst to train once but classify many times.

Earth Observation applications for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation: March 10th, 2022

Taking urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts" is a crucial goal set forward under Goal 13 – Climate Action as part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Climate action requires global efforts related to climate change mitigation – reducing the flow of heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, or enhancing the "sinks" that accumulate and store these gases. And climate change adaptation – adjustments in ecological, social, or economic systems in response to actual or expected climatic stimuli and their effects or impacts.

Geospatial data, technologies, and services are essential tools for governments, businesses, and civil society, to better understand and manage our world. Today, these technologies are more critical than ever, as we face global challenges like climate change and truly embrace sustainable practices.

This workshop, organized by WGIC and supported by its Members, will demonstrate the value of Earth observation data, analytics, and insights to provide meaningful and effective solutions for climate action.

Using software to prepare for Climate Change impacts and natural disaster: Deep Dive hosted by Deploy Solutions

March 11th, 2022

At a time of rising climate change impacts, there is a vital and growing need to prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters. But there is a critical communication gap between authorities,  citizens, and communities.   

Drawing on the ongoing results of our massive multi-year climate change research project, and with assistance from hundreds of students, citizens, academics, NGOs, government officials, and industry partners, Deploy Solutions has identified the top perceived climate change-related communication problems. We have explored numerous ways software can help overcome these key barriers to trust and misinformation and offer practical and life-saving advice to protect citizens and society.    

We are building a prototype to show how authorities can improve communication with the general public and citizen scientists before, during, or after a flood. This deep dive session provides updates and shows our development progress on key concepts.   

Learn and be inspired by the practical ways software can help our citizens and communities weather climate change impacts and natural disasters!
