How do new safety systems in automobiles relate to sustainability?

While relating automobiles to sustainability, the focus here is on this marvel of engineering, and steers clear of the fact that this is a high-priced and gas guzzling personal vehicle. It’s not a stretch to compare individual personal safety in the high-speed and potentially chaotic environment of highway driving to the dangers that our planet

Satellite Imagery for China, Australia and Beyond

Satellite imagery continues to grow in importance as a primary source of intelligence for decision making across many industries. V1 Magazine editor Jeff Thurston interviewed Rob Lees, Managing Director for Spot Image Australia (left) and  Hugues Pavie, Managing Director for Spot Image in China (right) in Toulouse, France recently. Both regions are experiencing considerable growth

Which Geospatial Technologies Will 3D GIS Impact?

Many geospatial technologies will be impacted by three and four dimensional geographic information systems (3D GIS). Some technologies like global positioning systems (GNSS), remote sensing and laser based technologies will enjoy a thrust forward as new forms of data capture, management, analysis and representation are supported through thinking about applications in 3D. Visualisation will be

What are some of the geographic lessons from a summer road trip?

The classic American summer road trip entails long hours of roadside observation, with stops at cultural landmarks, parks and the occasional kitschy roadside attraction. The family-oriented tour offers some enduring geographic lessons, with the chance to create memories and connections to an expansive land.

Exploring the Status and Importance of the GeoWeb

The concept of the GeoWeb has been gaining ground for some time, but the full vision is only just beginning to be addressed. V1 editor Matt Ball spoke with Ron Lake, founder and president of Galdos Systems, and creator of the GeoWeb Conference, about the current status of the GeoWeb, and priorities for current development

Modelling Infrastructure

New tools for modelling infrastructure design are helping to create high quality results while decreasing design and modelling costs. Mark Paraskeva was recently appointed Vice-President of Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMIA) for Autodesk. New development and re-development in these regions is contributing significantly to company revenue and several new products are contributing to

Is 3D GIS Revolutionary?

The advent of true 3-D GIS will significantly and fundamentally change how we think about geographic information systems, provide a greater understanding of spatial processes and relationships, stimulate whole new areas of research as well as product development and shift our use of spatial information to a more real-time basis. In addition, it will cause

Web 3.0 and the Rise of Process Engines

Paul Torrens, an Associate Professor and Director of the Geosimulation Laboratory at Arizona State University’s School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, has conducted many innovative research projects on topics such as city models, immersive modeling, space-time GIS and geographic analysis of human behavior. His work garnered such attention that Torrens was awarded the Presidential

What’s the value of a clear and consistent corporate vision?

The ESRI International User Conference takes place next week, and it marks the 40th anniversary of the company that Jack built. Much has happened in the evolution of GIS in that span of time, and many companies have come and gone that have tried to commercialize the technology. At this milestone, it seems fitting to

How does remote sensing connect to the concept of ecological building and infrastructure?

"Remote sensing has a strong relationship to the concept of ecological building. Unlike green building and sustainable architecture which are more directly oriented to building performance and efficiency, ecological building is based on ecology. For geospatial applications this involves the relationship of the building itself with the surrounding environment. While building design will usually involve
