From Noah Ahles at the UVM Spatial Analysis Lab
Imagery of Kathmandu, Nepal provided by Bing
The last week in October was exceptionally busy for members of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team at UVM. On October 25th the Spatial Analysis Lab hosted a mapathon to create detailed digital maps in Nepal in response to a massive landslide that blocked the Kali Gandaki River. Coincidentally, hurricane Patricia had just hit Mexico’s western coast and we were able to delegate a team of volunteers from Tri Delta to work in Puerto Vallarta. Thankfully, Mexico was well prepared and there was a minimal loss of life, although there was severe damage to infrastructure as a result of flooding and winds. Despite breaking records for highest sustained wind speeds globally and barometric pressure in the Western Hemisphere, Patricia quickly dissipated once it made landfall after hitting a steep gradient of elevation into a mountainous region.

This is a follow-up to our previous post on using high-spatial, high-temporal resolution imagery from our senseFly eBee to map changing ice conditions on Vermont Rivers. The Winooski River in Montpelier has a history of ice jams and flooding. As part of our Department of Transportation grant we have been gathering color-infrared imagery of the Winooski River to evaluate the use of such imagery to map changes in ice conditions.

RFP for Parcel Mapping Posted:
Lemington today, Brunswick, Stannard, and Sutton coming soon…
I am excited to report that I have posted the first of (at least) 4 parcel mapping RFPs that will be made available in the next month or so: Lemington, VT!

VTrans Youtube Videos of Bridge and Culvert Data Workshop:
In October 2014, the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) hosted a workshop to help GIS users of Vermont data understand what bridge and culvert information is available, and which data set is appropriate for their needs.
A series of videos of the information presented at the workshop have been produced by Eric Goldman, Multimedia Specialist, and Sara Moulton, GIS Specialist of the VTrans Division of Policy, Planning and Intermodal Development. The videos can be accessed on YouTube at
