Overview of MDL Course: Introduction to Marine GIS with Saga
Stimulating background materials, for better understanding of practical exercises
Hairy diagrams, made easy!
Tight file/folder organization, structured filenames, and project segregation within the personal computer
Synthesis from many published sources: vectors, classified grids, polygons, etc.
Focus on Area of Interest (AOI)
Ancillary objects: Frames, graticules, dummy grids, etc.
GEBCO &other relief data: vector and gridded objects
Many layers of named geopolitical zones and areas -- especially the VLIZ archives
Typical incorporation of station data into GIS layer, through points
Experiments with various methods to obtain meaningful data grids
Methods to mask land areas
Grid images for publications, websites, Google, etc.
“Classified” grids of terrain or habitat data
Special methods for satellite data
Wind and current vector displays
Cutting and resampling to simplify collections
Digitizing new shapes
Setup for Pacific-centered projects
Estimating relief contours from grids
