Where do electrical utilities fit into sustainability and what role do geospatial technologies play?

Jeff Thurston — "A multi-dimensional approach involving numerous energy sources, changed business processes and responsibilities, initiatives in city living and infrastructure and a need to to continuously assess, monitor and communicate sustainability factors will cause electrical utilities to connect more closely with the geotechnology industry. The future is bright." Matt Ball — "Like many industries,

Why Are So Many Paper Map Products Still Produced?

Jeff Thurston — “Maps are not only hard copy records, full of personal intuitions, text, marking and interpretation, but, they are also a mode of communication – both from the creator to the user, and through discovery and analysis.” Matt Ball — “The time-tested method for communicating map data is paper, yet the digital advantage offers

Autodesk BIM Strategy Incorporates Broader Geographies

Autodesk has been hard at work to develop products that contribute to sustainable design within many of its divisions. V1 editor Matt Ball spoke with Phil Bernstein, Autodesk vice president of AEC Industry Strategy and Relations, about the current state of sustainable design, green building, and the future of sustainable design practices, including the Metropolis

What Does the Word ‘Map’ Mean to You?

Jeff Thurston — “For me, maps are representations of processes. They provide information and clues not only about what is happening and where, but those factors involved in their occurrence.” Matt Ball — “A map is a powerful tool, and the age of digital representation of map data coupled with handheld navigation and tracking devices,

Why is there so little geospatial analysis?

Jeff Thurston — “If we take 10 geospatial professionals and ask them to define geospatial analysis, I would be willing to bet 10 Euro that we would get at least 5 different answers. It is difficult for many to define.” Matt Ball — “Analysis certainly takes place with all GIS systems, and with most GIS

What is the Connection of GIS to Sustainability?

Jeff Thurston — "Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are centrally connected to sustainability issues. They are integrator’s of spatial information which originates from technologies and systems used to monitor, measure, map and model environments and systems related to sustainability issues." Matt Ball — "GIS projects have already contributed a great deal toward understanding and quantifying what is

What is the Influence of Gaming on Geotechnology?

Jeff Thurston — “We need to explore these possibilities more. We need to understand that what we think as professionals may need to be adapted for consumption and understanding by others. Gaming is a route into the process of change – of understanding communities and relations between people. “ Matt Ball — “The considerable graphics

What is the Role of the Digital Terrain Model (DTM) Today?

Jeff Thurston — “Traditionally DTM have been used to build elevation models of the Earth’s surface. They are 3D in nature and thus lend themselves to several important uses. Today, the idea is to build valuable products upon DTM, extending their usefulness, but also addressing real issues that incorporate other spatial information. The link of

What Does a Sensor Web Add to a Decision Support System?

Jeff Thurston— “A GIS takes simple readings from monitored or connected places and integrates them into a framework for decision making. For this reason, the most adaptable, useful and valuable sensor webs will find a GIS connected to the processing streams and monitoring workflows. “ Matt Ball —“Sensor webs add real-time data into decision support

How Does GPS Relate to Infrastructure?

 Jeff Thurston— “I would suggest that GPS has allowed us to see the world as a series of connected systems and processes, collectively measured and integrated at higher and higher levels. For this reason, GPS enables dynamic and exciting infrastructure projects to be designed, built, visualised, operated and maintained around the world. “  Matt Ball —“GPS receivers
