DEMView: 3-D Visualization of DEM Error
M.B. Gousie and M.J. Smith Proceedings of Spatial Accuracy Assessment in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, Leicester It is well known that a digital elevation model (DEM) may contain systematic or other errors....

Surface Roughness of Topography: A Multi-Scale Analysis of Landform Elements in Midland Valley, Scotland
C.H. Grohman, M.J. Smith and C. Riccomini Proceedings of Geomorphometry, 140-148 In this paper we briefly review a selection of measures of surface roughness, with specific application to grid based digital elevation models (DEMs). A selection were assessed for the behaviour of roughness at different spatial scales and dataset resolutions using moving-window and raster algebra steps to a test area in the Midland Valley, Scotland.

Open Access Journal Publication: implementation, copyright and dissemination, using the Journal of Maps as a case study
Smith, M.J. US Geological Survey Open-File Report 2008-1385, 43-46. Open access (OA) journals are rapidly becoming an important channel for publishing academic articles and, although they represent a small proportion of the total number of journals published annually, it is significant that organisations such as British Medical Journals (BMJ) operate in this manner. This article explores the broad implementation of OA journals, issues pertaining to copyright and the distribution of (geospatial) research data.

Glacial striae observations for Ireland compiled from historic records
Smith, M.J., Knight, J. and Field, K. US Geological Survey Open-File Report 2008-1385, 105-107. Glacial landform mapping is one of the primarily inputs for the reconstruction of past glacial environments and processes, potentially inferring maximum ice sheet extent, primary ice flow configurations, and ice sheet dynamics....

Planetary Remote Sensing and GIS: The Convergence of Software, Techniques and Data [#1675]
M.J. Smith, Petford N. and Xiao L. 37th Lunar and Planetary Society Conference, paper 1675. GIS has been used extensively within geoscience, however this has not been mirrored within the planetary sciences. We briefly explore the convergence between GIS, application of new techniques and availability of data within the planetary sciences.

Landmap Strip Data: Planimetric and Height Quality Assessment
M.J. Smith and K. Kitmitto Proceedings of GIS Research UK 10th Annual Conference, 326-330 The Landmap project set out to create an orthorectified digital elevation model (DEM) of the United Kingdom and Ireland using spaceborne SAR interferometry that was free from any inherited copyright....

Mapping glacial lineaments from satellite imagery: an assessment of the problems and development of best procedure.
M.J. Smith, C.D. Clark and S.M. Wise Slovak Geological Magazine, 7, 263-274 Remotely sensed images are important tools in the mapping of glacial landforms and reconstruction of past glacial environments....
