Tutorial - São Paulo City LiDAR

Published: Nov 25, 2019 by C.H. Grohmann

The São Paulo City Hall has just released free LiDAR data covering the city on their digital mapping platform, GeoSampa.

Since the GeoSampa site is in Portuguese, I posted a short tutorial on how to access the data in the SPAMLab blog: https://spamlab.github.io/2019-11-25-pmsp_laz/.

Also, just a few hours after the post went live, it received a comment from Fernando Gomes, who works at GEOINFO (the group maintaining GeoSampa) and shared a GitHub repository with a preliminary approach to analyze LiDAR data with Python and PDAL: https://github.com/geoinfo-smdu/usando-MDT. Nice!

Hope it helps. Spread the word!

O que é um Invited Review?

Ultimamente recebemos no Brazilian Journal of Geology (BJGEO) alguns pedidos de autores interessados em enviar artigos de revisão, os “Invited Reviews”. Mas o que é esse tipo de artigo? Uma revisão bibliográfica de tese pode ser publicada dessa maneira? Vamos ver:

UTM 23S??

If there’s one thing that I see all the time as a reviewer, is a map of some study area in Brazil with a caption like “UTM coordinates zone 23S”.


The Brazilian Journal of Geology is the official publication of the Brazilian Geological Society. As the Deputy Editor, I receive emails with common questions about the journal. So I decided to crate a page with some useful information for potential authors.
