About 18 months ago we had solar panels installed on Geoger Towers (this may or may not be an accurate description of the Geoger office!). With this comes the ability to monitor power generation and use, as well as a host of other things. During the install we were warned that a small tree in … More Know your site!

Linked to this will be issues around what raster-centric software is used to complete these … More Rasters Revealed
