Using imagery and 3D to support planning and development in Minnesota.
The rural edge is a sensitive zone that exists between urbanization and rural environments. As rural landscapes are transformed by development, the result is often irreversible change that has significant impacts on quality of life and the environment. The rural edge is found at all scales, whether it be the boundary of a major metropolitan area or a rapidly growing recreational area within an otherwise remote location. Esri and Maryland State Geographic Information Committee (MSGIC) have teamed up to demonstrate how up-to-date imagery and 3D data from modern, low-cost sources can provide the most relevant geospatial information for understanding and managing change within the rural edge.
About this session
Viewers will gain an understanding on how to use ArcGIS Pro and other tools to manage imagery archives, work with historical imagery, implement a low-cost drone program, do 3D site modeling and visualization, extract features from imagery, and do basic analytics such as change analysis. Special attention will be made on the use of imagery and lidar data.
