Sea Surface Height Maps from Radar Altimetry

Sea Surface Height Maps from Radar Altimetry

Using data from several satellite altimeters, a finer picture of the ever-changing height of the oceans is revealed. Swirling currents called eddies pepper the global ocean. Like small pock-marks in sea surface height, these eddies are found in every major ocean basin. Near the Equator, the eddies give way to fast moving features called Kelvin Waves. When they build up ...

Remote Sensing Applications Using ArcGIS : Winter Warming and Tall White Spruce Mortality

Remote Sensing Applications Using ArcGIS : Winter Warming and Tall White Spruce Mortality

With winter climate warming, canopy icing events (rain/ice/wind) have become common and these icing events have lead to the widespread canopy breakage and wind-throw of large white spruce trees. In this mini-project, we use repeat LIDAR (2004,2014) to map potential locations of fallen tall (greater than 33m) white spruce trees. These tall trees are important as a sawtimber source. They ...

Aerial Mapping and Modeling by Airflow Creatiions – 3D mesh

Aerial Mapping and Modeling by Airflow Creatiions – 3D mesh

This is an experimental project conducted within FAA regulations. We are very happy with the results. We look forward to accomplish several projects in 2016. Aerial mapping is growing and Airflow Creations is happy to be part of this technology. Airflow Creations operated DJI and PIX4D platforms to create the 3D model and measurements for this project. Airflow Creations provides ...
