What If Captain Cook Made an Atlas With Geomatics Technology Today?

Atlases can be considered as the original mashups, combining and integrating several pieces of geographic and spatial information. Globes enabled viewers to gain a better appreciation of the world, including land and oceans. But atlases combined the advantages of graphics with the printing press. Today, we look at the world through advanced digital technologies that

How Does Satellite Imagery Compare with Aerial Photography?

Satellite imagery and aerial photography have been compared against each other often – since the launch of the world’s first satellites useful for geographic information systems (GIS) and advanced image processing techniques. Previous comparisons focused primarily on issues related to resolution and accuracy. Today we are as likely to see those comparisons continue, but timing,

What Impact Does a More Fully Enabled GNSS Have on GIS and CAD Related Applications?

  Russia has recently launched 3 more GLONASS satellites bringing that constellation to 20 operating satellites in space. The timing of this improved coverage is important. The rest of the geospatial industry, particularly the CAD and GIS market are rapidly transitioning to new applications and technologies that leverage increased navigation and positioning capabilities, and GALILEO

Should Rural and Urban Spatial Models Link Together?

A significant amount of spatial and geodata related work is related to urban activity. This involves all kinds of geodata including cadastral, topographic, infrastructure, demographic, transport and many other types of information. At the same time we can find similar levels of activity related to rural environments. While modelling for each may take on different

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 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

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

How Much Geospatial Development Extends from Open Free Data as Compared to Military and Defense Research?

The geospa­tial com­mu­nity has long sup­ported the idea that open data leads to the devel­op­ment of appli­ca­tions and new tech­nolo­gies. The pre­vail­ing the­ory goes some­thing like this; if peo­ple have access to open geospa­tial data then they will use it to develop appli­ca­tions. That seems log­i­cal and is cer­tainly one of the goals many of

What Does Practicing ‘Good’ GIS Mean to You?

Geo­graphic infor­ma­tion sys­tems (GIS) can be used for a mul­ti­tude of pur­poses and in dif­fer­ent ways to cre­ate, man­age, ana­lyze and rep­re­sent spa­tial infor­ma­tion. The nature of GIS is built upon a will­ing­ness, inter­est and expec­ta­tion to solve a spe­cific prob­lem using both geo­data and GIS. With so many def­i­n­i­tions float­ing around about what a

How Can Digital Cities and Spatial Data Infrastructure Connect?

Digital cities are a topic of high interest today. While they have been discussed for a number of years, technological developments, particularly in the area of 3D and remote sensing have propelled them forward. While geographic information systems (GIS) are natural integrator’s of spatial information, their role in spatial data infrastructure (SDI) is well known.
