I have been getting started capturing UAV imagery with my Phantom 3 Pro and I wanted to get a processing software. Right now I do have the resources to get one of the commercial products such as Pix4D, Drone2Map, or Drone Deploy, so I went the opensource route. Web Open Drone Map (WebODM) is a […]Read more "Starting Off Processing UAV Imagery with Web Open Drone Map"

In my class this week, my students asked me to show them how I created some of the flood inudation models. The lab is a bit tricky to customize with tools like Arc Hydro or Hazus, but I was thinking, when I had an emergency situation and needed a flood zone I turned to QGIS […]Read more "A Simple Method to Create Flood Inudation Models"
To get the LiDAR in I had to create a new Elevation dataset. What I did was using a terrain feature dataset loaded the LiDAR points. Then using the USGS DEM, I converted each pixel to a point which then was also loaded into the feature dataset (this will mess up the point spacing, but […]Read more "Getting a LiDAR Datasets to work with Hazus"
Wave Models are quite difficult and complex. Unfortunately, many times they are needed, there is not much time to let then run. The method discussed, while not perfect, can at least give a quick analysis to help during an emergency. During Hurricane Sandy, this was a question that was asked. The method I used was, […]Read more "A Quick Method of Looking at Wave Impacts During a Storm"
