Are organizations that do not use geoinformation at higher risk than those that do?

Jeff Thurston — "Spatial information is an integral component of forward thinking organizations. Together with tool sets that are capable of working with spatial information, these organizations can more effectively understand their assets, operations, customers as well as threats and uncertainties. In short, their strategic foundations are stronger and their ability to adapt, respond and

How can geospatial technology drive political consensus on environmental issues?

Jeff Thurston — “There are many ways that geospatial technology can drive political consensus on environmental issues. Flooding, disease, conservation, water quality, noise mapping and many other issues often demand high quality geographic information, spatial analysis and integration. Action, coordination and collaboration are necessary to meet these challenges.” Matt Ball — “At this point in

How do you think the current world financial situation will impact the geospatial industry?

Jeff Thurston — "The current world financial situation involved a significant amount of over-leveraging – derivatives. The wild fluctations we currently see, and the continuing downturns, are attributable to world wide de-leveraging. As painful as the current financial situation is, the correction will build the foundation for operating down the road. The geospatial industry has

Exploring ESRI’s Science Initiatives

The geographic information system approach of ESRI has long had ties to science. Recently, ESRI placed more emphasis on this role by designating senior executive David Maguire as chief scientist. V1 editor Matt Ball sat down with Maguire at the ESRI User Conference in San Diego to speak about the science initiatives at the company,

How can geospatial technologies contribute to more livable cities?

Jeff Thurston — "Spatial information allows us to understand cities better and to make better decisions about them as a result. Technologies that create, manage, analyse and represent that information are fundamental tools supporting 21st century living spaces. The city of tomorrow will be built upon a foundation of sustainable processes that will generate cleaner

What are three major trends in the use of spatial information and where are they leading?

Jeff Thurston — “Three major trends in the use of spatial information include increasing use of remotely sensed imagery, the integration of information for GIS / CAD modeling and the use of spatial information for graphically rich visualisation / simulation environments. In general spatial information is being served to, and used by more people and businesses than ever before. We

Will digital city models become one über model or separate models for specific domains?

Jeff Thurston — “I think digital city models are continuing to evolve and will include a collection of models. Although some of the elements of these models may be similar, particularly foundation elements, model performance will vary for many unique reasons. The concept of a one-world model looks attractive, but reality for most cities varies widely. Technical performance is an

GIS Provides Tools for Optimism

Peter Raven, noted botanist, environmentalist and president of the Missouri Botanical Garden, gave the keynote speech at this year’s ESRI International User Conference. Raven’s talk centered on the need for biodiversity and species preservation, and he praised the GIS toolset for contributing greatly in these causes. V1 Editor Matt Ball spoke with Raven following his

What is the business value of environmental applications and where do CAD and GIS fit into that?

Jeff Thurston — “The business value of environmental applications is growing significantly and will become the dominant economic force for generating wealth in the near future – efficient land use and effective infrastructure solve environmental problems and is good business. Some geospatial leaders understand this and are investing in these applications and technologies and are already beginning
