Different mobile phones, more spatially related Apps — how do we wade through it all?

New mobile prod­ucts are arriv­ing in the mar­ket­place daily. Along with them come new appli­ca­tion pro­gram­ming inter­faces (APIs). Each of these is used to access soft­ware pro­grams of dif­fer­ent types. Geospa­tial and design inter­ested par­ties have never had a greater oppor­tu­nity to access pow­er­ful spa­tial data so read­ily — and sim­ply. The growth in APIs is expand­ing rapidly.

How can it be that we’re only scratching the surface of LIDAR’s potential?

The concept of Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) is really quite simple as it involves the capability to tune the wavelength, pulse width and frequency of laser light, bounce that light off objects, and capture returning light over time to measure X,Y, and Z dimensions as well as the returning light’s intensity. The technology has

Is 3D GIS About to Revolutionize Visualization?

The devel­op­ment and release of 3D GIS is a major step for­ward into the future. It will undoubt­edly cause a stir, sev­eral peo­ple to scratch their heads and unleash a wave of new think­ing that we have not expe­ri­enced in the geo­com­mu­nity for quite some time. It will cross dis­ci­plines, open doors and stir the

What can be learned from the volunteer mapping efforts for Haiti?

The unfolding events in Haiti have underscored the fact that accessibility to map making tools and open spatial data can make anyone a mapmaker. Mapping is an activity that provides a tangible means for concerned citizens to reach out and help make sense of a very complicated and evolving situation where the more that is

What Do We Expect from GIS, CAD, Surveying and Visualization Today?

Time changes and tech­nol­ogy does as well.  Over time the rea­sons we pur­chased a prod­uct also change. We learn, we grow and we devel­op­ment new thoughts about spa­tial data, maps and how new designs and appli­ca­tions can be cre­ated. Growth leads to new ideas and per­cep­tions, sud­denly what was accept­able appears blurs and becomes re-established

How does the evolution of geospatial technology impact the future approach of a land developer?

The demand for new housing will not go away anytime soon. However, new development plans are under increasing scrutiny regarding the value that they bring to communities, and the impacts that they’ll have on quality of life. This growing sentiment of more reasoned development plays neatly into the hands of evolving design and planning approaches

How Would You Go About Changing the Structure of an Organisation to Enhance Effectiveness Using Spatial Tools?

How many times have you heard peo­ple say, “it’s a per­son­nel, organ­i­sa­tional or struc­tural prob­lem” as they began to run into a wall in terms of advanc­ing a project more quickly or encoun­tered resis­tance, some­times even fail­ure? Many of us have expe­ri­enced this, and, the reac­tions can also be dif­fer­ent with some walk­ing away, oth­ers

How do geospatial tools model and visualize external influences?

The idea of modeling external influences gets to the root capabilities of geospatial modeling and visualization. There’s a degree of sleuthing involved to truly understand the processes and influences of complex systems — applying spatial analysis to a place to profile the players, their impacts on each other, and the long-term trends of change over

What Are the Signals from COP15 Copenhagen to the Geospatial Industry?

There are impor­tant sig­nals emerg­ing from COP15 Copen­hagen that are impor­tant to the geospa­tial indus­try. The econ­omy has been in a poker game with envi­ron­ment, and nature has called the bluff, and demands atten­tion. COP15 is now talk­ing about trans­parency, trace­abil­ity, quan­tifi­ca­tion and qual­ity as nations demand to know what each other is doing about

What are the implications of model-based design for the geospatial community?

The community of architecture/engineering/construction (AEC) specialists is undergoing a dramatic evolution toward model-based design.  The concept and tools of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a paradigm shift for the AEC community as it breaks free of the drawing-oriented design process toward an intelligent model that informs all phases of a building’s life and is acted
