In the August edition of the Geographic Calculator webinar, we will explore vertical datums and transforming 3d data. In the 2014 release of Geographic Calculator, there was a change in how we work with vertical coordinate systems. This change allows more flexible interaction with vertical datums, and makes it easier to define custom transformations. Throughout Calculator, 3D data is increasingly common, whether we are mapping floodplains, sea beds, subsurface features or modeling on the surface. Data may come in the form of databases of numeric coordinates, vector based contour maps, LiDAR point clouds, or raster surface models. Wherever this 3D data comes from, the elevations are based on a specific vertical reference, and transforming from one to another must be done properly, or analysis done on the models will be flawed. This 60 minute session will explore the complexities of handling this data and their coordinates.
