And Geoinformatics

Geoinformatics Lecture Notes

  • Welcome to the second annual class on Geoinformatics! (formerly web mapping, possibly changing to Spatial Informatics, maybe going online! )
  • Grading
  • What is Geoinformatics?
  • What are Markup Languages?
  • What is the Semantic Web, or Web 3.0?
  • Open Standards, why they matter
  • Using the popular OGS standards
  • WFS is not for real-time, it is for transfer, according to OGC
  • WMS is for real-time portrayal and discovery
  • KML
  • Anatomy of geospatial data storage
  • shapefile
  • raster, including worldfile
  • geodatabases: PostGIS, SQLite, ArcGIS
  • Web Catalog Services
  • Final Project
  • Ontologies
  • collection of information about things
  • kind of like "doing math with stuff"
  • Types, Properties, and Relationship types
  • Properties

    Anything new about stirling engines in Cal?

    Looking for an update. Everything I find from google news is almost a year old. This is from the stirling engine deal with Southern Edison to build a 500MW plant outside of LA.
    What geographical areas are best suited for a solar dish farm?
    The southwest region of the United States is ideally suited for this. In fact, a solar farm 100 miles by 100 miles could satisfy 100% of the America’s annual electrical needs. Solar technology primarily addresses the peak power demands facing utility companies in the Southwest U.S. and other solar-rich areas.

    The cost of living and job markets are better than the national average, but the best job strategy is not to go for averages, but look at your specific skills and experiences, figure out which careers that relates to, and then go to that geographical area:
    technology - Silicon Valley
    finance - New York
    There are other factors to consider. How important are mountains? the ocean? good weather? I have met many midwesterners in Acapulco during the winter, and none ever told me
    "I got to get back to Omaha. I just miss those snow covered plains."

    4,000 Year Old Greenlander

    by BurpBoohickie

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Scientists have sequenced the DNA from four frozen hairs of a Greenlander who died 4,000 years ago in a study they say takes genetic technology into several new realms.
    Surprisingly, the long-dead man appears to have originated in Siberia and is unrelated to modern Greenlanders, Morten Rasmussen of the University of Copenhagen and colleagues found.
    "This provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit," the researchers wrote in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature
