dc.description.abstract ArcticDEM project was a joint project supported by both the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency(NGA) and the National Science Foundation(NSF) with the idea of creating a high resolution and high-quality digital surface model(DSM). The product is distributed free of cost as time-dependent DEM strips and is hosted as https links that a user can use to download each strip. The created product is a 2-by-2 meter elevation cells over an over of over 20 million square kilometers and uses digital globe stereo imagery to create these high-resolution DSM(s). The method used for the 2m derivate is Surface Extraction with TIN-based Search-space Minimization(SETSM). With this in mind and with the potential applications of using these toolsets there was a need to batch download the DEM files for your area of interest and to be able to extract, clean and process metadata. In all fairness, this tool has a motive of extending this as an input to Google Earth Engine(GEE) and hence the last tool which is the metadata parser is designed to create a metadata manifest in a CSV file which GEE can understand and associate during asset upload. en

Furthermore, the grant of patent rights specifically is withdrawn if: the licensee starts legal action against the licensor(s) over patent infringements within the covered software This rewriting of the BSD licence tries to achieve a few things. Firstly it adds an explicit grant of patent rights where that is needed to operate, modify and distribute the software. Some argue that such a grant is implicit in other open source licences, but the Apache License v2 spells it out, as well as explicitly withdrawing that grant in the circumstance mentioned above. It also contains solid definitions of the concepts it uses, providing more certainty as to its intended meaning. Among these is a definition of Contributor that contains another interesting feature of the licence. A Contributor, as distinct from someone who just modifies the software, also grants a licence to their modification back to the original authors. This mechanism, if taken up, simplifies control of the code. Finally the v2 licence is usable by other projects without the need to replace wording in the licence document itself. en
