Looking for a holiday gift idea for the geographers in your life and want to support the GIS community? Listed here are some great gift ideas produced by geographers.
Knowing how to preserve books, film and other information is common practice for libraries and museums. Maps, especially, can showcase that data for those who want to look back on the history of an area.
Mapping flood damage by manually examine imagery is a time-intensive and expensive process. New, automated methods using satellite data that compare pre and post-flood conditions are being developed.
While mapping spatiotemporal data has remained a challenge, increasingly we are seeing tools that are available on common open source platforms (e.g., R statistical package and QGIS) or commercial platforms such as ArcGIS.
Recent developments in GIS and analytical applications have demonstrated that predicting road conditions, and thus preventing traffic accidents and possibly even traffic in the first place, is possible.
