- Define “intervisibility”
- Outline an algorithm to determine the viewshed (area visible) from specific locations on surfaces specified by DEMs
- Perform siting analyses using specified visibility, slope, and other surface related constraints
- Explain the sources and impact of errors that affect intervisibility analyses
This knowledge area embodies a variety of data driven analytics, geocomputational methods, simulation and model driven approaches designed to study complex spatial-temporal problems, develop insights into characteristics of geospatial data sets, create and test geospatial process models, and construct knowledge of the behavior of geographically-explicit and dynamic processes and their patterns.
Topics in this Knowledge Area are listed thematically below. Existing topics are in regular font and linked directly to their original entries (published in 2006; these contain only Learning Objectives). Entries that have been updated and expanded are in bold. Forthcoming, future topics are italicized.
