What Could the Davos World Economic Forum Gain From Geospatial Understanding?

This week the World Economic Forum is taking place in Davos, Switzerland. While much of the discussion is focused upon economic policy development, the technological and conceptual linkages that contribute to economic growth and wealth are not always clear. Geospatial and geomatics technologies not only create and contribute to the underlying infrastructure and processes that

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,

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

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

Do Surveying – GIS Workflows Really Exist?

Many people talk about the relationship of geographic information systems (GIS) to surveying. To a distant observer, it sounds as if they are connected, seamless and supporting work flows beyond singular operations alone. Are surveying equipment manufacturers creating work flows outside of computer-aided design (CAD) that truly integrate GIS?  Are GIS users working with surveying

Is the Gap Between Surveying and GIS Contributing to Lower Precision Farming Uptake?

Many people have talked about a gap between surveying technology and geographic information system (GIS) technology over the years. Recent reports of precision farming uptake indicate lower than expected results – all at a time when commodity prices are high and food production is high on the agenda. What are the reasons for these lower uptake

How Do Geo-Technologies and Spatial Data Connect with Urban Planning?

Urban planning is inherently spatial. It involves both location and time – as well as policy. Geo-technologies for planning-design, data creation, data management, analysis and visualisation are all used to support the dynamic, fluid and ever-changing nature of urban areas. And, they often tend to arise within integrated circumstances. These technologies and geodata allow urban
