Sensors and the Environment

We can’t understand or manage what we can’t observe, measure and describe. To advance the human project of environmental learning and management that we began millennia ago using only our minds, our cultures and our naked senses, today we also supply ourselves with data from many kinds of sensor systems.

Understanding Dynamics of Geographic Domains

Geographic dynamics is concerned with the study and application of geographic information from creation through to geocomputation and visualisation.  A group from the University Consortium of Geographic Information Science (UCGIS) met with intelligence and non-government participants. That workshop resulted in the book Understanding Dynamics of Geographic Domains, a collection of articles edited by Kathleen Stewart Hornsby and

Ethanol Buzz Fuels Planning by Colonial Pipeline

Amid the clamor of national debate over how best to reduce reliance on oil, the call to replace petroleum with ethanol made enough noise to attract government and industry attention. A federal mandate, passed in December 2007, requires that the United States produce 15 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol by 2015. In response, a major

Cultivating Imagery for Better Crops

Unknown to the non-agricultural sector, farms are businesses too, and need to be as efficient as possible.  Along with soaring oil prices, farmers have also had to contend with soaring fertilizer prices – as well as fierce competition from overseas providers. Farmers in first-world countries have turned to high-tech precision agriculture to increase efficiency of

Design of Sustainable Buildings and Infrastructure

In our last installment on “Sustainable Urban Environments”, we discussed challenges and opportunities which the AEC industry will face in order to create sustainable urban environments amid aging infrastructure, with a workforce constrained by demographic and skill shifts, and in response to client pressure for highly productive and cost-effective results. Next we look at emerging

Designing Cities for a Changing Climate

A definition for the purpose of cities is long overdue. To address urgent concerns for sustainability and the health of humans and the biosphere, the purpose of the city must be to generate health and enhance sustainability. This is a major historical shift, but the city has the power and reach to achieve it, as

Pipeline Integrity – “Out of the Box”

The requirements on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have originally been focused on data capturing and mapping functionalities. Current analyses state very clearly, that 80% of all technical business processes are related with geospatial questions. That’s why an intelligent Pipeline Integrity Management System (PIMS) is more than reasonable for pipeline operators, and we introduce a GIS
