Here it is! The schedule for GIS Day @Stanford, 2016. It’s a work in progress, but only small changes to times will be made, at this point. 

This year’s events will be split between two venues. In the morning we will meet at the Hartley Conference Center, in Mitchell Earth Sciences Building, and after lunch (on the Mitchell Patio), we will reconvene at The David Rumsey Map Center at Green Library.

Please be sure to click on the TICKETS link, below, to RSVP for the event!

DigitalGlobe Workshop: GBDX

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The GBDX platform provides cloud-based access to DigitalGlobe’s vast current and historical library of geospatial data along with the tools and algorithms necessary to extract useful information from that data — at scale! This creates the ideal ecosystem for you to create new customer solutions without the cost of owning and operating costly data and IT infrastructure. Using the platform you can

  • Search, access, and process imagery in a manner that allows for rapid geospatial information product creation at any scale
  • Build new applications, or extend existing ones by leveraging the GBDX capabilities and embedding them in customer-facing interfaces
Infrastructure designed to scale to your needs

GBDX uses the cloud infrastructure of Amazon Web Service (AWS) to enable a set of APIs that can perform scaleable geo-compute against imagery data. The GBDX environment enables simple access to both storage and computation in a manner that is easily managed. GBDX is bringing the compute to the data rather than the data to the compute. Data residing within GBDX is stored in S3 ‘buckets’ that are accessed through GBDX RESTful (REST) web service APIs. The GBDX Workflow API enables you to access state of the art computer vision and remote sensing algorithms from DigitalGlobe and ENVI, dynamically increasing computation power.  If you don’t like the built in tools, thats fine, just import your own algorithms into the system to allow them to run at scale.

Complete access to 15 years of earth imagery

DigitalGlobe owns and operates the most agile and sophisticated constellation of commercial earth imaging satellites in the world which collect 3,000,000 km2 of Earth imagery every day. Of all high-resolution commercial imagery collected since 2010, DigitalGlobe has collected approximately 80% of it.
