This project/application was created by Johnny Chung Lee when he was a Ph.D. student in Carnegie Mellon University. Question: Have you ever used any computer software? Please tell us your experiences in using these software. (Microsoft Word? Powerpoint? Windows Live Messenger? Google Talk?) ArcGIS 10 Desktop Toolbox: Data Analysis, Data Conversion, Data Interoperability, Data Management, Editing, Geocoding, Geostatistical Analysis, 3D Analysis, Linear Referencing, Multidimension, Network Analysis, Parcel Fabric, Schematics, Spatial Analysis, Spatial Statistics, and Tracking Analysis. Geospatial Revolution Episode 1 & Chapter 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxCEb5Cv4Nk&feature=player_embedded Geographic (Spatial) Database: Database containing geographic data of a particular subject for a particular area (geospatial features) Database Management System (DBMS): Software applicatoin designed to create, maintain and access databases (efficient storage and access). SQL (Structured Query Language): a programming language designe for managing data (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sql) The Harvard Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis, 1965. SYMAP (Synagraphic Mapping System 1966), Growing GIS markets with several dominating vendors, Graphic User Interfaces, GIS software for specific applications, Customizable software development based on object-oriented programming, Spatial database GeoTools is an open source Java code library which provides standards compliant methods for the manipulation of geospatial data. Which types of GIS platforms you prefer? Discuss with costs, training, administration, reliability, scalability, robustness and availability between commercial GIS vs. opensource GIS. Logical Model: Create Diagrams and list desribing the properties of objects, their behavior, the type of relationships. (Freehand, Canvas, Painter). (No Databases or Attributes for graphic elements (points, lines, polygons). Purely presentation purpose. No query functions. Connecting Attributes and Graphic elements, include topology relationships. Very large size of data and very complicated drawing procedures (multiple map layers). How many bands (Layers)? What’s the storage size for each pixel? (2 bits?, 8 bits (One byte)? 24 bits (3 bytes)? Topology is the science and mathematics of relationships used to validate the geometry of vector entities, and for operations such as network tracing and tests of polygon adjacency. (p. 184) Object-Oriented GIS data model ? (Not really. Most of current GIS databases are still [Relational Database]. Shapefile vs. Geodatabase (Prepare your own answers and post it on the blackboard before the next class – Mar. 8 Thursday 11:00am) 1. Please find ONE commercial-based software package (Not limited for GIS, the software could be any kinds) and ONE open source software package (with their URLs — Web address) and discuss the advantages and disadvantages between the two software. 2. Please create and define THREE ‘related’ Data Objects by following the rules of Object-Oriented Modeling and explain the three Objects’ attributes, behaviors, and their relationships. (All three objects must be related to each other). Draw a diagram of the three objects by following the [Object Model Notation]. Use the following file: OODM_2012.pptx Source.
