Automatic Map Registration and Change Detection
Track: Python for Arcgis
Authors: Michel Morgan
In GIS, there is a need to detect changes between current and historic data for building spatiotemporal databases. We are researching and establishing a new algorithm for detecting changes in vector-based datasets using ESRIFileGeodatabaseAPI and Python-ArcGIS. We utilize the algorithm for detecting changes and managing environmental data related to pipelines and transmission projects. Experimental results show very accurate data registration and reliable highlighted changes between datasets.
