MATLAB for Analyzing and Visualizing Geospatial Data
Dr. Loren Shure, MathWorks


Accessing and visualizing data is a critical requirement for researchers trying to gain information about and insight from earthquakes. However, sometimes just connecting to and processing the data to prepare it for visualization and analysis can result in big hurdles and time sinks.

MATLAB has many capabilities for working with and visualizing data, including multiple new features that make handling and viewing geospatial data much easier and require much less coding.

During this webinar, Dr. Loren Shure, a geophysicist by training and a MATLAB expert by day, will use MATLAB to demonstrate two different earthquake case studies. The case studies will demonstrate how you can:

-        Access geospatial data from public sources

-        Display web map data with layers superposed using the Mapping Toolbox

-        Work with big data

-        Reproduce and compare to results of previous research in the field

-        Speed up your MATLAB code with parallel and GPU computing using the Parallel Computing Toolbox, including accessing HPC resources at your site

-        Use the new MATLAB 2014b features, such as the new graphics system, date-times, and more (http://www-test1.mathworks.com/products/matlab/whatsnew.html)

In addition, Loren will show you how to find resources within the MATLAB, IRIS, and related seismic, geodetic, and broader geoscience communities, including where to get

-        Sample code, such as irisfetch.m,

-        Case studies

-        Technical answers from the MATLAB geoscience community, and

-        Webinars, videos and product information for learning more about MATLAB capabilities
