Location Intelligence and Emergency Management: Prevent, Prepare, Respond and Recover with Confidence

Traditional GIS applications have long been a trusted tool of the trade for professionals working in the field of emergency management. Recent advances have led to a greater capability to undertake a holistic approach to incident management utilising much more than the conventional knowledge derived from static maps and GIS silos.

Security Breaches Reveal Need to Integrate Sensor Systems into Intelligent Networks

Two well-publicized incursions at heavily protected U.S. facilities this summer illustrate the glaring weaknesses that still remain in high-tech perimeter security systems. Although the breaches were ultimately benign, the incidents at JFK Airport in New York and the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant in Tennessee serve as not-so-subtle reminders of the high stakes involved in safeguarding

Biosensors for Environmental Monitoring

The idea for biosensors — using some part of an organism to generate a signal to measure or monitor the presence of a substance — has been around for more than a century. The classic example is the use of canaries in coal mines to detect toxic gasses. Because these tiny birds are so sensitive

Esri Takes GIS Online to Open Our World

The 2012 Esri International User Conference took place in San Diego, Calif., from July 23-27. The audience of more than 14,000 attendees came from 126 countries, with a full third from outside the United States, and a full third there for their first time. This year’s theme, “Opening Our World,” was meant to address the

Geospatial Advances Drive Big Data Problem, Solution

For thousands of years, humanity has sought to improve its ability to make decisions. Record keeping and information gathering has driven many of the innovations. Better information leads to competitive advantage on the battlefield and in the boardroom. But today, we have a truly 21st century problem: too much information. Or rather, too much data,

Traffic Data Hits on Real-Time Needs

For decades, state and local departments of transportation have collected traffic data by means of a variety of methods — including sub-surface magnetic induction loops, pneumatic hoses laid across lanes, piezoelectric sensors placed alongside roadways, and vehicle counts by human observers. These traditional traffic data collection methods, however, are limited in coverage and expensive to
