FOSS4G 2023

DGGSs and you!
06-29, 16:30–17:00 (Europe/Tirane), UBT D / N113 - Second Floor

Discrete Global Grid Systems (DGGS) are gaining popularity as a new method of geospatial data representation. This presentation will provide an overview of the concept of DGGS and its advantages over traditional geospatial data representation methods.

We will explore the similarities and differences between these different DGGS frameworks, including their cell shapes, grid resolutions, and ability to handle different types of geospatial data. We will also discuss the benefits of using DGGS in geospatial data applications, such as remote sensing, climate modeling, and environmental monitoring.

Overall, this presentation will provide a comprehensive overview of the concept of DGGS and its potential applications in geospatial data analysis and visualization. Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the advantages and challenges associated with different DGGS frameworks and will gain insights into the ongoing research efforts in this field.
