TerraGo Opens Things Up with OpenGeoPDF

For a decade now, TerraGo has worked with an understanding that as uses of geospatial data grow, the number of users grows along with them. That growth is enhanced when the ability to use the data is made easier, both for professionals on the collection and analysis end, and for the decision-maker who can more

How soon until we see a seamless high-resolution digital Earth?

It’s been a while since we’ve had a truly breakthrough mapping platform. We’re coming up on the tenth anniversary of the creation of Google Maps (Feb. 2005) and the corresponding commercialization of Google Earth (June 2005). The open source NASA World Wind is another mature, but open source, variety of online world viewer, and there

Will we recognize the meaning of the word ‘map’ in the years to come?

Historically, a map is an abstract recording of reality that communicates information about our surroundings and the relationships of things to place. It incorporates direction and scale to allow us to navigate. In its traditional paper format, a map ranks with a book in its ability to capture knowledge in a compact and portable way.

Have we progressed beyond geospatial arrogance?

A conversation that took place at the industry’s largest geospatial gathering this summer is hard to erase from memory. There, a long-time industry veteran who is well respected to the point of holding office in a major industry association and giving many keynote addresses at regional events made a statement along the lines of, “we

Is it time for another spatial analysis revolution?

Earlier this month, noted geospatial author and spatial analysis pioneer Joe Berry gave a series of talks marking his retirement. His 40-year perspective on the evolution of GIS technology takes in a remarkable progression from punch cards to digitizers and on to personal and portable computers. Much of the changes to GIS were driven by

Is the convergence of geospatial technology ripe to cause disruption in natural resource industries?

A new population projection from the United Nations pushes past predictions beyond marks made just a decade ago. The new numbers show that we have an 80 percent chance of reaching 11 billion people by 2100, up from today’s seven billion number, and well beyond the prior estimate that showed growth rates leveling off. With

Has your geospatial consulting business been smacked by the convergence of social, mobile, analytics and cloud?

There’s a clever acronym for the convergence of social, mobile, analytics, and cloud (SMAC). With SMAC there’s a great deal of opportunity for improved efficiency of services for government and enterprises that engage a large customer base through websites, social media and mobile applications. Using these many touch points yields a large volume of data

Is there any progress on location privacy protection?

There has long been a call for some safeguards for location privacy, not only to put some checks on the surveillant state, but also to curb some of the bold uses that marketers are making with our data. There are many examples of corporate and government abuses of our location privacy, and they only seem

What does real-time computing add to geospatial analysis and system performance?

One of the more amazing things to come out recently in the geospatial sphere is the coupling of GIS functionality with SAP HANA, the platform as a service that returns real-time analytics with its in-memory processing. The speed at which this predictive analytical engine operates, coupled with Esri’s GeoEvent Processor for real-time data feeds in
