On June 5, 2013, the U.S. Geological Survey Flight Operations Team transmitted the last command to the Landsat 5 satellite, effectively terminating the mission 29 years, 3 months and 4 days after its launch by NASA from Vandenberg Air Force Base on March 1, 1984. The Landsat program is a joint effort between USGS and NASA.
From the 12th Southeast Asian Survey Congress in Manila, Intermap Technologies today announces the official launch of its Orion Platform, the industry's first Software-Driven Spatial Data Platform. The Orion Platform is designed to allow governmental entities to manage a country's entire spatial data infrastructure program from one unified control point. Around the world, governments are increasingly using geospatial data to manage infrastructure, weather related risks, agriculture, excavation, national security, and much more.
Research universities create mountains of data, and more and more, that data is tethered to a place in the world. The world is, after all, spatial—and information is not an island. The technology and field behind that spatial data are called Geographical Information Sciences (GIS). The University of Minnesota has embarked on a visionary endeavor, called U-Spatial, to develop a network to support spatial research across the University, in fields ranging from nursing to watershed restoration. By using expert consultants and providing training and support in spatial research, U-Spatial is making research more meaningful and usable to researchers and society. It's also reducing redundancy in support for spatial science research.
