Has the app replaced the map as the means of geospatial information sharing?

This may sound like a dated question, given the great many navigation transactions that are occurring through mobile applications. However, the widespread adoption of apps as a means to disseminate enterprise geospatial information is not as well entrenched. Just this past week, Hexagon Geospatial launched Smart M.Apps and a cloud-based M.App Portfolio for the creation

How will you harness the incredible variety of sensing options?

The barriers to our understanding of land change and interactions with Earth systems are on the cusp of coming down, thanks to the many ways that our ability to sense are improving and becoming more accessible and affordable. There are so many new (and coming) sensing abilities that it’s a difficult time to chart the

Is there increasing convergence between geospatial technologies and engineering applications?

Geospatial technologies have long been a critical input into built infrastructure design, construction and maintenance. While the tools to design (CAD and BIM) are still decidedly different than the software to map and manage assets (GIS), there are many inroads being made for more seamless data and workflow sharing and their functionalities complement one another

Can you do GIS without GIS?

This question is spurred by the Denver-based meetup Geospatial Amateurs as “GIS without GIS” is the theme of their gathering this week. They have two presentations of compelling geospatial analysis use cases, with one using R in RStudio and the other Jupyter Notebooks. One of these is a statistical desktop package that includes spatial analysis,

How have we progressed on the accessibility of geospatial data?

There was a time when all data wanted to be free. That was followed by all data wanted to be open. Then we moved to all data made accessible via a cloud-based and software integrated marketplace. Each of these data trends still exist and we now seem to be moving toward a new paradigm where

Is Google going dormant on map innovation or just biding its time?

This year marked the tenth anniversary of both Google Maps and Earth, putting emphasis on the technology maturity and ubiquity. The Earth offering is now a seamless click to view on Google Maps, and the continued emphasis on simplicity belies the data creation and innovation frenzy that created this map leader. In coincidence with these

What are the implications of the sale of Nokia’s HERE to a consortium of German carmakers?

News this week that Nokia’s HERE mapping division has settled on a suitor puts a multi-billion dollar mapping acquisition in the news again. The more than $3 billion price tag (converting from 2.8 Billion Euros) to a consortium of German carmakers (Audi, BMW and Daimler) is welcome news for those wishing that autonomous cars would

Is the geospatial-intelligence sector at the heart of the geospatial revolution?

At last week’s GEOINT Symposium, organized by the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation, the keynotes and many of the sessions continued to express the theme that we are experiencing a geospatial revolution. The parallels between the geopolitical disruption in the world, the fuel for the geospatial intelligence mission, and the technological revolution, which is being spurred

How are 3D maps spurring innovation and economic activity?

Detailed 3D mapping is much more readily accessible thanks to a wide variety of new sensors, high-performance processing tools, automation and cloud storage. The large-scale three-dimensional model has been something that has been discussed and achieved to varying degrees of realism for decades. It’s now much easier and cheaper to capture and update a realistic

Do you fear the takeover of artificial intelligence in the geospatial marketplace?

Artificial intelligence is present and growing in adoption in workflows that require the processing of large imagery datasets. Algorithms that are trained for pattern recognition are counting and classifying objects that are then processed for dashboards, reports and other insights. This kind of information extraction drives business and other critical decisions on a daily basis,
