During the past decade I have been fortunate enough to travel all over North America and one of my recent work trips brought me to Labrador for the first time. The actual field work took place in various places throughout the Mealy Mountains and surrounding coastal areas, so for the this job were we based out of the small town of Cartwright.
A color shaded relief (CSR) utilizes chromo stereoscopic techniques to help emphasize the depth of the Z dimension from traditional shaded relief models that already portray the presence of an elevation difference. Using carefully edited RGB (red, green, blue) pseudo colors and then encoding them into the shaded relief image provides the user with an even more enhanced feeling that they can perceive a third dimension from a two-dimensional medium. When a feature of the same color in the image is shaded darker than the shade of its background, then the background color will predominate in determining its perceived depth position in the image.
A digital elevation model (DEM) or sometimes referred to as a digital terrain model (DTM) is a quantitative representation of the topography of the Earth. DEMs are used as a source of elevation (and to create other digital terrain models) for many different purposes
We recently decided to move back East close to where we grew up. But to do that meant we would need to sell our house in Ottawa and buy another one in Nova Scotia. The housing market here in Ottawa has been pretty strong for many years and was still pretty hot when we listed our house despite various slow downs in the real estate markets all across the country.
So we decided to do some basic cosmetic renovations to the house to increase the value of the property and make it easier to sell before we listed. After several weeks of renovations and investing about $10k we were able to sell the house only 4 days. I have included some photos of our place before and after I renovated it to show the big difference.
I have added a web site portfolio section to my site with a few examples of web sites that I have created and some that I have redesigned. If you are interested in having me design, make your web site or redesign an existing one, then please contact me, I would love to hear from you. Or just take a few minutes and view my web site portfolio.
The main goal of this project was to generate flood maps and DEMs with better than 30 cm vertical accuracy for the coastal area of southeastern New Brunswick.
This world map can easily help you find out what UTM zone you are working from. Simply click on the map to enlarge it to expose all of the map, then find out where you are located and look for the zone and row that matches your area.
CanadianGIS.com is an extension of my web site that I started back in 2006 after I noticed that there was a real need to have one good place on the web to help find Canadian GIS resources. The site helps provide others with resources about Canadian GIS data, basic information about Canadian companies that provide GIS services, locations of Canadian data and maps, information about GIS events, places to find Canadian GIS employment and education info and many other great resources.
