Free webinars schedules: Terrainscapes 2009

There is no charge for attending any Terrainscapes 2009 Webinar. These are all free webinars sponsored by Intermap! So feel free to join, but you have to register now to avail a space.

These complimentary online seminars, Terrainscapes 2009, focus on how Intermap's high-resolution 3D digital elevation models (DEMs) are enabling GIS and geospatial professionals across a wide range of industries, including GIS, engineering, automotive, GPS, risk management, wind energy, environmental planning, wireless communications, 3D visualization, and more. These topical 45-minute interactive events feature geospatial and application-specific discussions by mapping experts, value-added partners, and end users who have successfully used our precise DEMs to develop a host of unique solutions.

Oil and Gas Production
This Webinar will address ways in which Intermap's precise 3D elevation data can be used to enable a number of applications in the oil and gas industry. These applications include determining the precise position of a drilling location, pipeline routing, and using large-area imagery to detect subsurface conditions favorable for accumulating oil and gas.

When: March 10, 8:00 a.m. PST; 9:00 a.m. MST; 10:00 a.m. CST; 11:00 a.m. EST; 16:00 GMT

Introduction to Digital Elevation Models (DEMs)
As the fields of digital mapping and geospatial analysis continue to grow, the use of 3D data is becoming more widespread. One of the most common types of 3D data is a digital elevation model, or DEM. In this Webinar, we'll talk about what DEMs are and how they differ from other types of spatial data. We'll also look at some of the sources of DEM data, their quality, and how they are generated. Lastly, we'll look at examples of how you can use DEMs in sophisticated geospatial analysis to solve real-world problems.

When: March 18, 8:00 a.m. PST; 9:00 a.m. MST; 10:00 a.m. CST; 11:00 a.m. EST: 16:00 GMT

Complementary Mapping Technologies
The demand for high-quality and low-cost airborne Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR) 3D digital mapping data for many geospatial applications is escalating. Revolutionary advances in sensor development and georeferencing technologies, coupled with exponential improvements of digital computing power, enable unparalleled functionality and flexibility in geospatial mapping. Several competing technologies, such as the more familiar airborne LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) system, are used to generate map products at various scales, details, and accuracies.

When: April 1, 8:00 a.m. PST; 9:00 a.m. MST; 10:00 a.m. CST; 11:00 a.m. EST; 16:00 GMT

Intermediate Digital Elevation Models (DEMs)
This Webinar will detail how characteristics of the terrain model are important, what artifacts could cause issues, how the accuracy requirements will impact the product, and more. You will learn how elevation datasets can be used to provide an address-based risk assessment, as well as how the radar image and terrain model can be used to extract 3D road vectors.

When: April 2, 8:00 a.m. PST; 9:00 a.m. MST; 10:00 a.m. CST; 11:00 a.m. EST; 16:00 GMT

Value of Quality Data
From the United States to Europe and from Asia to South America, the positive role that quality 3D elevation data and imagery can play in minimizing the environmental impact caused by the global escalation of infrastructure development projects cannot be overemphasized. Members of this panel include industry experts recognized throughout their respective careers for practicing and/or advocating socially and environmentally responsible infrastructure planning, development, and maintenance initiatives. This discussion will feature real-world examples of how precision map data has helped geospatial planners and developers move forward with an eye toward ensuring an environmentally and economically sustainable tomorrow.

When: April 14, 8:00 a.m. PST; 9:00 a.m. MST; 10:00 a.m. CST; 11:00 a.m. EST; 16:00 GMT
