Spatial Enhancements,

This week we were able to familiarize ourselves with Glovis at the USGS website. We were able to download Landsat images from USGS's archive. We also got to convert TIFFs and  filter them through different filters. In Arcmap we were able tp filter imaged using Focal Statistical Analysts. In ERDAS we were able to convert Striping image into a visible map image.
In the image above it shows the outcome of a striping image once it has been converted into a visible image. After the image was converted it was enhanced in Arcmap using the focal spatial analysts.

Intro to ERDAS Image and Digital Data 1

This weeks lab we learned a few calculations such as Maxwell's wave theory, and Planck's relation,both which are needed when calculating EMRs. We also got to learn and use a new system called ERDAS. ERDAS is a beginning processing step for making Arc maps.
   The Arc map displayed was made from data created on  ERDAS. The picture was then used to create this map in Arc map. The map represented different terrain types, and the square acres of that terrain,within the  Olympic Mountains, located in Seattle, Washington.

Truthing Lab4

I started the Truthing lab with my previous lab3 arcmap. In this lab I randomly placed 30 points on my existing LULC arcmap. The lab allowed us to compare the over all land code to the actual land usage of the points. The points on the map signifies if the land use and land codes on the map match the land usage of the actual point.

Land Use Land Cover

        Land Use Land Coverage was about taking the picture given and deciding which land attributes of the picture were to be categorized. In  this lab I was able to create a shapefile and place different land features of the map under different Code Descriptions.
        The Map to the right represent different land uses. Each number placed on the map is in relation with the colors on the legend which describes the land usage.

GIS4035/4035L Lab2

Lab-2 exercise 1 consisted of  taking an aerial photograph and marking individual areas of the photo and categorizing the area depending on its physical features. We had to mark the photo on tone color, and texture.

Lab 2 exercise 2 was based on the same principle as marking up the photograph, but his time the focus was more on the shapes, patterns, and shadows of the objects. In the picture below we had to mark  the objects and place them in the three categories.

WK14 Bobwhite Manatee Transmission Line

       Week 14  lab finals we were given the task to run GIS Arcmap analysis for the Bobwhite Manatee Transmission Line. The projected consisted of filtering data for land sensitive areas, displaying land parcels and residential homes that would be affected by the transmission line. In the map below it displays all the residential homes within the preferred corridor and the 400ft preferred corridor buffer zone. This is just one of the maps that i generated for the project.
        The mapped displayed is a map showing the homes that are affected by the transmission line. The residential homes displayed are those that are within the preferred corridor and those that are within the 400ft buffer zone.

WK13 Georeferencing

       In this week we learned how to georeference data by using the control points tool. We defined the spatial reference point to an unknown vector data. We learned what residual and Root Mean Square Errors are. This lab taught us how ot use many now tools in ARCmap. We used the editor, georeferencing, Multiple Image Buffer tool bars. Also we learned how to create a 3D map image using ARCscene.
      In the first map there are two data frames. The first data frame is of the UWF campus with an inset map of Escambia County, FLorida signifying the location of the Campus.
The second map shows a 3D rendition of the campus.
