High Resolution Flood Modelling based upon LAR-IAC data

A couple of years ago, Brett Sanders from UC Irvine partnered with LA County’s Department of Public Works to investigate the value of using high resolution LIDAR (evelation) data to model flooding. They modelled the 1963 Baldwin Hills Dam Break, which caused extensive damage in Los Angeles.

Pictometry 2.7 Configuration Package and Instructions

Hi there,

A recent post contained the installation package for Pictometry 2.7. A couple of users have had some problems because they already had EFS installed.

If you already have Pictometry installed on your machine, you only need to download this package: Pictometry EFS 2.7 Configuration files and Instruction (zip)

Import LAR-IAC2 Aerial Imagery SDE Export Files

As a follow-up to the earler post about loading LAR-IAC (from first project) aerial imagery, I wanted to follow up with information about how we expect to deploy LAR-IAC data for LAR-IAC2.


Loading LAR-IAC 1 Aerial Imagery Tiles to SDE

LAR-IAC data can a beast! Countywide, the imagery is around 1.5 Tb, split into over 13,000 tiles. This can be a major distribution headache. As we move forward to LAR-IAC 2, we plan on providing data in more easily consumable formats.


LAR-IAC User Group Meeting
