PR – The Carbon Project has released a
multi-part video tutorial providing basic geospatial training on the free
Gaia application. The video tutorial demonstrates how to use the Gaia 3.3
geospatial viewer – including how to access and visualize Open Geospatial
Consortium (OGC) Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI).
The video series is available at www.YouTube.com/thecarbonproject.
For government and corporate users unable to access YouTube at work, The
Carbon Project provides a hosted site at
Online viewers can follow along with the lessons by downloading the Gaia 3.3
application at no cost from http://www.thecarbonproject.com/gaia.php
Hosted by Nuke Goldstein, founder of The Carbon Project and chief developer
of Gaia, this tutorial offers information for newcomers and advanced users
alike. In this four part series the first video lesson shows how to download
and install Gaia 3.3.
The second lesson walks through the basics of the
Gaia user interface, notes and session saving. The third video shows how to
construct a map and how to style geospatial features in order to produce
more meaningful maps. The forth part of the video tutorial series dives
into using OGC standards-based data and services in Gaia – from using a
Geography Markup Language (GML) file to accessing a Web Map Service (WMS)
and Web Feature Service (WFS) to using the Filter Builder tool for Filter
Encoding (FE) support.
Gaia 3.3 is built using the latest CarbonTools PRO 22.214.171.124 assemblies and is
fully open-source to CarbonTools PRO developers.
Gaia 3.3 also provides a
robust and open API that allows programmers to develop Gaia Extenders
without CarbonTools PRO. Gaia Extenders are light, easy to deploy and can
enhance Gaia’s functionality for a variety of SDI and geospatial tasks.
Gaia development was sponsored by the National Spatial Data Infrastructure
(NSDI) Cooperative Agreements Program (CAP).
