A DuckDB-Wasm Web Mapping Experiment with Parquet

We’re going to talk about a DuckDB-Wasm web mapping experiment with Parquet. But first we need some context! Common Patterns Every application is different, and most architectures are unique in some way, but we sometimes see common patterns repeated. The diagram below shows a common pattern in web mapping. Figure 1: A common high-level architecture …

Coral Reef Dataset Pipeline

Facing climate change and severe coral reef bleaching, which causes coral reefs to die off, coral reef scientists have been embracing new technologies to help diagnose the overall health of those coral reefs. Satellite remote sensing imagery can measure sea surface temperature as early warning signals for coral bleaching. Underwater, teams of scientists record live …

Searching for Sasquatch

Recently we’ve been hearing reports about sightings of Sasquatch in and around Prince George, British Columbia. Being a geospatial company and because Prince George is home — one of them anyway — we thought we could lend a hand in confirming these reports.
