Spatial Enhancement, GIS 4035, Lab 6

The above image was created using ERDAS imagine.  The following is an enhanced image of the I7_striping.img file modified using the fourier transform and convolution filters with an image kernel setting of 3x3 Sharpen.  I was able to generate the following example by generating a smaller low pass circle (approx half the size from the original example).

GIS 4035, Intro to ERDAS Imagine and Digital Data 1, Mod 5

In this weeks lab we were introduced us to Erdas Imagine and Digital Data.  The lab focused mainly on the basic tools to familiarize ourselves with the program.  Above is a map containing the image created using Erdas and ArcMap.  In addition, we reviewed Maxwell's wave theory and how frequency of EMR and the wavelength relate ( Maxwell's Formula;  C = λν).

GIS 4035, Ground Truthing and Accuracy Assessment, Module

In this weeks lab we took a look at Ground Truth and Accuracy Assessment.  Using the map generated from the previous week, we had to determine how accurate our selections were while using google maps as a reference tool to pin point each location. For this lab, I randomly selected areas to compare to my results.  The results came out to be 73.33% accurate. To my surprise, this area consisted mainly of industrial/commercial properties and not residential.

GIS 4035, Module 3, LULC, Land Use / Land Cover Classification Mapping,

In this weeks lab, we were asked to classify an area of Pascagoula, MS and create a land use/land cover map classified to level 2.  The areas were selected based on the key elements (colors, textures, size etc..) that made them easier to distinguish from another.   The map above consisted mainly of residential areas, classified by code #11.

GIS 4035 Module 2 - Visual Interpretation

In this weeks lab we were able to see how the various tones and textures of a photo along with the features seen are used to help define objects from an aerial photograph.  The slides above are randomly selected areas and objects selected for this lab depicting the different tones (from light to dark) and texture along with the various features (shadow, association, pattern and shape size) covered in the lab.

Final_BobWhite Manatee Transmission Line Project

 Above is a couple of slides taken from my final project for the BobWhite-Manatee Transmission Line proposed along the Sarasota and Manatee counties located in the state of Florida.  The Final was a combination of all of the material covered in the Introduction to GIS course.  The objective was to generate maps using the ArcGIS software to determine how much of an impact the proposed new transmission line would have on the counties (including schools, daycares, enviroment (protected lands and homes, including the overall length of the transmission line) along its route.

Please refer to the links below to access the power point slides and transcript

Georeferencing, Editing and ArcScene - Week13

In the first half of this weeks lab we took a look at Georeferencing .  We found the RMS error values for first and second order polynomials using control points by linking the known referenced data to the unknown image. The second half of the lab was used to generate a scene in 3D of the roads, buildings, and images of the UWF campus.  This is was done using the ArcScene.  The files attached are a representation of both maps created for this lab.
