Is There Room for Private Industry and Entrepreneurs in Spatial Data Infrastructure?

Most events connected with spatial data infrastructure (SDI) related projects and work involve government organisations and institutions. In principle, SDI are still very young and adapting – they have yet to form closer links and governance ties, although many existing projects have had some industry participation. Current worldwide economic conditions could act as a spark

How Does Design Connect With Geospatial and Geomatics Technologies?

Design as it relates to geospatial and geomatics technologies is a special relationship. There are few technologies, outside of spatial data creation and management tools, that can bring as much useful, diverse and necessary information to the design process. This value connects directly to the ability to create – to enlist and to conduct designs

How Do Asset Management Applications Benefit Through Geospatial Tools?

Assets can include property, infrastructure and resources associated with business operations. Institutions, governments and other organisations may also own and operate assets. Since the number and location of assets may be large and widely distributed, tools capable of supporting their management increase the possibility to more accurately managing them. Through geospatial technologies, owner-operators can see,

Survey Performance From Robotic Total Stations to GNSS

There are few suppliers today that provide a full range of surveying technology ranging from robotic total stations through to GNSS for surveying instruments – GeoMax is one of them. The company aims to deliver a price-to-performance advantage. Asian Surveying and Mapping editor Jeff Thurston interviewed Alois Geierlehner, business director at GeoMax to learn more about

Is There A Future For An OpenFarmMap?

The beginnings of geographic information system (GIS) were built on a foundation of landscape mapping and related to agriculture. Traditionally,  the production of mapping for agriculture has been primarily oriented around government agencies and organisations. The production of food led to exports and and imports and often încluded government agencies. Governance linked to food production crossed

Connecting the Dots Between Surveying & GIS

The relationship between surveying and geographic information systems (GIS) is integral for the development of most spatial data applications. Accuracy and precision in measurement matter. While the numbers and types of surveying related tools for measurment has grown, they in turn must interoperate with GIS, empowering applications to deliver results. ASM editor Jeff Thurston interviewed Brent

Performance From Robotic Total Stations to GNSS

ASM Magazine: At INTERGEO recently, we had the opportunity to see the new GeoMax products. Can you briefly explain some of the main new features in some of the products? AG: We’ve been introducing during the INTERGEO our new robotic Total Station as well as our two new GNSS RTK systems beside new products for

What Do You Consider To Be the Hottest Jobs In The Geospatial Sector Today?

Spatial data can be found in many business processes and work flows today. Geospatial technologies are constantly innovating, and social pressures and environmental concerns are driving new solutions and applications. The pace of change is increasing, and austerity measures around the world are causing new forms of spatial data use to rise as demanding challenges

What Do You Think GIS In The Cloud Will Be Like?

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have evolved remarkably over the last 50 years. What began as a desire to perform mapping functions using computers, is now a collection of modules, functional capabilities and software programs all configured toward a system for handling geographic-based information. Recent trends toward software as a service as compared to products means

Trimble’s Unified Geospatial Division Sets the Pace

A series of acquisitions and a new unified purpose within Trimble’s GeoSpatial Division have caught the eyes of many. Mobile mapping, aerial imaging, photogrammetry and laser scanning are now integrated toward a common goal. With a capability to supplement these areas with high quality positioning and navigation data, the company is at the forefront. Asian Surveying
