Students created toolbox for GIS software
Three master students at our department – Szilvia Johansson, Nina Nesterova and Enzo Zerega – have developed a toolbox for the geographic information system software ESRI ArcGIS (v. 10.5).
The toolbox is called Arctic DEM Data management, and helps retrieving a digital elevation model for a defined time range in a specified study area. It can also apply altimetry corrections for elevation values based on satellite data from ICESat.
With this toolbox, Szilvia, Nina and Enzo hope to contribute for researchers to save time and ease the preparation for change detection studies.
