Walking through a digitized forest

Recently I've been working with the TLS data that was collected this summer (my first blog post discussed this in some detail here). Specifically I'm working with TLS scans that happened on the ground in our test forest of Herbert Run. 


This is what working with the data looks like; it is a digitized real world forest. Viewing this laser data is amazing. To me it…

3D Web Toolkits

We're starting to think about what tools to use to build a web-based ecosynth point set viewer. Here are a few interesting things I've found so far:

Web Toolkits - places to get started beyond just coding in raw javascript

  • jQuery and jQueryUI are generic web toolkits to make building web pages easier. jQuery makes accessing elements of the web page easier and handles…

Working where people are

Copter Christening

Stephen has completed two of three hybrid conversions and now it's time to name them.    Stephen will of course have the final say as it has been his time and effort in designing and building these babies but, we are asking the Ecosynth community to aid us in this endeavor.  Previous copter names are Hexa1, Hexa2, Roflkopter, Frankenstein, Sally, and Raven.  We admit some are…

I wanted to share this tree map of Washington DC, because it is local, and I liked the way that it was set up. You simply have to click on the tree, and all of the data that was collected for the tree is displayed. This seems like a good and accessible way to share the data with the public. Once we finish all of our forestry work, perhaps we could eventually set something…

Arducopter is Awesome

It finally happened!  I can now confidently say that the Arducopter system is performing at a level above that of the Mikrokopter system.  Here are a few reasons:

1. Everything except takeoff and landing is automatic.  If you can hover your copter 10m from the ground, then all you need to do is flip a switch and the Arducopter will automatically fly up…
