This summer in the GIS Center

For the Skidmore College GIS Center, the end of the school year signifies an opportunity for examining a plethora of mapping technologies.  This summer, the GIS Center team will be focusing on the capabilities and applicability of a variety of digital and mobile mapping technologies.  Currently we plan to concentrate our focuses on the GIS Center quadcopter-the DJI Phantom 2, GPS technology, and several 3D analysis mapping software.  Overall, we hope to raise awareness about the fun and valuable technologies available in the GIS Center while considering their applicability to a variety of disciplines.  Below are brief descriptions of some of the technologies we will be experimenting with.   Digital 3D Mapping Software This GIS Center will be exploring two 3D analysis tools currently being used in the GIS world.  These software include Target for ArcGIS and Target.  Both of these software provide a medium for analysis of 3D data such as subsurface geological or structural mapping and could be of great use in the geosciences here at Skidmore.  The fundamental difference between the two is that Target for ArcGIS serves as an extension for Esri’s ArcMap, which is currently used in the GIS Center.  Importantly, these technologies are heavily […] Continue reading
