Superoverlay Pro



Very good examples of Superoverlay 1.5 Pro public Matt Fox
It is California Geologic Maps and Geologic Map of the United States by USGS
Nice professional work, good examples. Enjoy!

Google GeoCalendar :)

I test geo events and make Calendar.
You can add New calendar to your Calendars.
Now this calendar have 2 events. You can see events in GMaps by click and select in Where link Map
You can see this calendar as HTML or XML
You can see and use this with Feedburner

You can also insert into your Calendar events only. One or two.

I do not know all ways from this. It's see very interests.

P.S.
Jeffrey Johnson also compare vector and raster datasets near LAX (Los Angeles international airport). Very nice results!



Thanks!

Superoverlay.1.4.4

New version of Superoverlay 1.4.4




New features:

Project menu...




Selections by geometry... (F5) (Plus only)



Open dialogue Selection files. You can add KML or KMZ files for the selection of the area of interests (AOI). You can use points, lines and polygons. All results of the work of program will relate only to the selected region.

Fields:
Use - use this geometry in selection
Add - add this geometry to results as Network Link


Add File (Ctrl+O)
You can add images from local network or local machine (by path). Superoverlay supports multiple selections and Drag&Drop by add images.

Add Folder (Ctrl+F)
You can add folder into project tree. Superoverlay supports one level of folders only. Folders need for group operations with images. If we set the parameter for Folder that this parameter automatically will be set for all elements of group. We can set parameters to Project (all objects) also.


Extent...
Alt (optional) specifies a altitude of the overlay. You can select units of altitude from list (m, km, ft, mi). We use new overlays feature of GE 4.
Overlay transparency
You can set transparency of all tiled overlays.
High resolution images only
If you check this option then results include hi-res images only.

Isoliner


New home page of Isoliner module. Isolineris the ArcGIS extension for make grids and points theme with interpolate by Kriging's and triangulation method. Isoliner include additional 3D functions, interpolation by features, generation of random points.

Functionality

2D Kriging (FREE)

Create GRID and points feature class by selected source layer and Z attribute.

How Kriging works.
Kriging is an advanced geostatistical procedure that generates an estimated surface from a scattered set of points with z values. Unlike the other interpolation methods, Kriging involves an interactive investigation of the spatial behavior of the phenomenon represented by the z values before the user selects the best estimation method for generating the output surface.

Source layer.
Select point, line or polygon feature class from current document.

Z attribute.
Select Z attribute from list of fields for current feature class.

Output group.
The Variogram method dialog box has several models to choose from. When the Kriging method is set to Ordinary, the available models are Spherical, Circular, Exponential, Gaussian, and Linear. When the Kriging method is set to Universal, the available models are Linear with linear drift and Linear with quadratic drift. The Universal Kriging types assume that there is a structural component present and that the local trend varies from one location to another.
The advanced parameters allow control of the variogram used for Kriging. A default value for Lag size is initially set to the default Output cell size. For Major range, Partial sill, and Nugget, a default value will be calculated internally if nothing is specified.
The optional output variance of prediction raster contains the kriging variance at each output raster cell. Assuming the kriging errors are normally distributed, there is a 95.5 percent probability that the actual z-value at the cell is the predicted raster value, plus or minus two times the square root of the value in the prediction raster.
Low values within the output variance of prediction raster indicate a high degree of confidence in the predicted value. High values may indicate a need for more data points.

Features Kriging (FREE)

Native Kriging by selected features (points, polylines, polygons) class.

Interpolation & Geoprocessing (FREE)

Tools for make of the interpolations lines.

3D Kriging (Plus&Pro)

Create 3D points feature class by selected source layer with Z and additional attribute.

3D features Kriging (Plus&Pro)

Native 3D-Kriging by selected features (points, polylines, polygons) class.

3D Interpolation & Geoprocessing (Plus&Pro)

Tools for make of the 3D interpolations lines.

Section (Plus&Pro)

Tools to generation of feature classes by direction.

Triangulation (FREE)

Tools for make of triangle polygon layer by points.

3D Surface (Pro only)

Create isosurfaces by 3D points theme and attribute.

Interpolation by mesh (Pro only)

Create isolines on surfaces, sections and other triangles mesh.

Raster to points(FREE)

Convert selected from drop down list raster to Output Points layer

Convert to 3D (FREE)

Set 3d values to points (verticles) for the selected source layes. Uses attributes of the source layer, GRID or constant value.

Random 3D Points (FREE)

Make 3D grid of points with random values.

Random Points 2D (FREE)

Make grid of points with random (0..1) values.

Collection of images

Slice 3D


New home page of Slice3D.
Slice 3D is the ArcGIS extension intended for making of information geological-geophysical model of a rock mass. This solution include unique support of "two-scale" geological graphics. We recommend to use tools together with a free Typeconvert extension. Also we recommend to use module KMLer as an extension for support universal Google 4D Z-service. Slice3D include free and commercial functions.

Superoverlay.1.4.2


















New version of Superoverlay.1.4.2
Superoverlay Plus. Added feature Superoverlay selections. Example
Selections by area of interests (AOI). You can add Points, Lines, Polygons to selections.
How to use Selections?
  1. Place overlays in GE for georeference
  2. Create AOI
  3. Run Superoverlay. Add overlays and selections.
  4. Generate superoverlays
Results we see as hi-resolution images near AOI
