What are the top 10 dynamic processes to track with next-generation sensors and systems?

The accelerated pace of global change comes at a time when technology is enabling greater monitoring with enhanced visualization for better insight. Sensors, including individuals armed with the sensor pods on smartphones, are providing an unprecedented ability to measure and monitor change. Today’s systems are aggregating this information in new ways, and yet there’s a

Will Landsat 8 usher in a new era for Earth observation awareness and appreciation?

Today at 10:02 a.m. (PST), the high-pressure launch of the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) took place at Vandeberg Air Force Base in California. The Landsat 8 satellite fills a much-needed gap in Earth observation, given that the 13-year-old Landsat 7 is partially compromised, and the 28-year-old Landsat 5 was recently retired.

Do the Google-sponsored research reports shed new light on the Geo services industry?

This past week, Google unveiled two reports they commissioned that take a close look at both the domestic (U.S.) and global market for Geo services. The reports were prepared for Google by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) for the domestic portion, and Oxera for the global take. Both studies are keyed toward three outcomes: the

Has your organization broken free of siloed departments along with systems?

There has been a big push over the years to open up systems for more of an enterprise-oriented view, rather than fiefdoms of domains. This move has been largely successful across many enterprises through the benefits of databases, web services, and cloud-based resources. Now that data is freer to mix and interact, it’s possible to

If GIS is media, are geospatial analysts journalists?

The idea that GIS is new media grows with relevance as we move toward more real-time insights, and as spatial analysis is being used widely to develop and enhance news stories. This concept was coined by Daniel Sui and Michael Goodchild in a guest editorial that appeared in the Intl. Journal of Geographical Information Science in

Painting a Geographical Picture of Complex Emergencies

GIS has long been used to get a handle on complex emergency situations as maps provide a means for a common understanding across diverse disaster response teams. Esri has been working to aid and support local teams as well as the general public through online tools that map and integrate with social media. Sensors &

If mapping is never done, then how far done are we?

One beauty of a geographical systems pursuit is the never-ending to-do list of items that need mapping. Where we once charted unknown lands, and added place names, today’s tools allow us to catalog many more attributes, and monitor change through modeled and simulated captured reality. We’ve come so far in our mapping abilities in a

Trimble Continues to Innovate to Meet Growing Agriculture Demands

The application of GNSS sensors and machine control to agriculture, with a prescriptive approach that matches maps of the field nutrients and soil condition, has had a dramatic  impact on increased yields and cost savings for farmers. As more extremes in weather occur, this variable technology is helping ensure productivity with fewer inputs. Sensors &
