#maptimeDavis Learn to High Performance Compute: Geo Style

maptime-hpc

Have you been doing geospatial processes that takes hours, days, or weeks to run? Been wondering if there’s an easy way to make it go faster?

Come learn some ways to take your toolbox to the next level with High Performance Computing (HPC). We’ll discuss and walk-through some examples of taking a iterative processes and turning them into parallel processes that can leverage more power from a single computers or multiple computers (clusters).

When? Tuesday, May 1, 1:00-3:00 in the DSI Classroom – room 360 Shields Library

#maptimeDavis Mapping Surface Water Change with Google Earth Engine

greatsaltlakeIn this special 3 hour #maptimeDavis session, Ani Ghosh will teach attendees how to use Google Earth Engine for spatial analysis questions related to mapping surface water. Google Earth Engine code editor uses Earth Engine JavaScript API to access various datasets, perform spatial analysis and data visualization in your browser. Prior experience with any programming language (javascript, R, Python… even writing functions for Excel) will be helpful but is not necessary.  This workshop is scheduled to last three hours to allow for plenty of time to learn and try Earth Engine, but participants do not need to stay for the entire session.

When? Tuesday, April 24, 1:00-4:00

Where?  The Data Science Initiative Classroom – Shields Library room 360

#maptimeDavis Field Work Prep

You’ve been through all the equipment catalogs and that one thing you need just isn’t available for purchase.  Whether it’s ground control targets, quadrat frames, or permanent markers, you’re just going to have to make it yourself.  But how?  This installation of #maptimeDavis takes us on a tour of UC Davis’ own Craft Center to learn about the tools and resources available to you AND we’ll get a demonstration of common GPS devices for taking your own GPS points.

When? Tuesday, April 17, 1:00-3:00 – Meet at the Craft Center
