Pursuing a State-Driven National Spatial Data Infrastructure

Effective spatial data management is essential to government administration at all levels from local to national. The City of Springfield and NASA Ames Research Center have begun collaboration on the technology and framework needed for sustainable spatial data management across all levels of government. This technology is open source and purposed to enhance the sharing

Turkish National CORS Network and Applications

Recently, a national CORS network, called CORS-TR network has been established by Istanbul Kultur University in Turkey and Northern Cyprus. The project was sponsored by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK). The network was designed to fulfill several important tasks ranging from geodetic measurements, crustal deformation studies to modeling the atmosphere (troposphere

3D – Not Just for TV and Games Any More

That GIS products and technologies will adopt 3D for visualization and analysis is a foregone conclusion. Possibly the biggest clue that geospatial 3D is going to be perceived in the future as just another flavor of the map interface is the simple one-click toggle between Google Maps and Google Earth that was introduced a couple

The World of Geographically Referenced Information is Facing a Paradigm Shift

One of the biggest issues or discussion subject within the whole geographic information domain at the moment is the ever-changing demands for handling information in a better and more efficient way. The domain is expanding in all kinds of directions. What remains is geo-referenced information handled with a computer. We are seeing applications and demonstrators

The New Gateway to Green Building

Over the past decade, green building has gone from the fringe to the mainstream of the building industry. In many communities, buildings have “gone green” by adopting strategies such as integrative design, energy modeling, commissioning, enhanced energy efficiency, renewable materials, attention to daylight and views, water conservation measures, and on-site renewable energy generation. Use of

GeoVisionary – Virtual Fieldwork For Real Geologists

Geological information is useful for many purposes in the mining industry and environmental monitoring – improvement programs.  Technological innovation is now providing 3D and 4D geodata useful for visualisation.  GeoVisionary, a visualisation 3D stereographic software produced by the British Geological Survey (BGS) and Virtalis company incorporates spatial data for geological mapping projects.

Old Maps for Spatial Applications

We can easily imagine the whole picture, if a particular problem is sketched on a sheet of paper, or when the observed area is illustrated with a painting, in conjunction with understandable symbols. A map is therefore a visual representation of particular portion of space by means of symbolic delineation of properties and relations between

Cartography, Power and Utopia

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), possibly the first scientist who devised a wireless world, looked at Science as a common service, a way to improve the lot of mankind, not just a means for enhancing wealth (less than ever, the wealth of the few), or to bend to compulsions of market economy. Geomatics and Geoinformation can give
