Topic: Working in the weeds with Alaska Geoportal Committee Data (AGC/SDMI imagery) - Tips and caching test results
Note/Tip: We are testing this site for meeting summaries vs. emailing slides or posting elsewhare. This summary was created as a “Discussion” which allows users that are logged in to “comment” but does not require an “answer”. Use your GeoNet username (originally called the “esri global account”) or you can create a new username/profile from link in upper-right corner, if needed. Read-only mode should not require a login.
Several questions were asked throughout the meeting:
- re: licensing and distribution of caches were asked…I[note: deferred answers to someone more knowledgeable from AGC/TAG]
-Jason asked about the Xcopy tools Becky used to restructure the files so she could more easily work with the imagery. [note: as mentioned above, I will create a separate writeup for the xcopy commands I used]
-Kim Homan is working with CBJ lidar, imagery, countours, hillshade etc….to build image services. Ran into some issues:
-Evan Thoms talked about his use of mosaic datasets and issues when trying to accommodate users on multi-versions of ArcGIS Desktop. He is trying to move into image services with new Server deployment - wants to stand up options for web apps. Created GDAL libraries (virtual rasters) with a few large raster datasets (Digital Globe) - and works in both ArcGIS and QGIS.
Becky asked Evan to present for the SIG ...tentatively Tues Jan 13, 2015. May combine with update from this meeting and/or other topic (Evan mentioned his talk would be short)
Summary: Making progress, more to test. Let’s keep in communication to collaborate efforts, testing, and eliminate duplication. Please add comments, especially if you have comments on items that i have tested or anything on the to-do list.
