Accuracy in the Hands of the Workforce: Portable GPS Devices Prove Central to Accurate Solutions

The casual use of satellite-based positioning has proliferated, with GPS now readily available in mobile phones and cars. Most GPS receiver chips in such devices can achieve an accuracy of just two to three meters, which is far less accurate than professional-grade devices. Consumer- grade devices lack the ability to provide quality assurance details or

Harnessing the Cloud for Spatial Data Management

With the increasing spatial, spectral and temporal resolution of satellite and aerial imagery, there is an accompanying increase in storage requirements and processing capacity to effectively manage that data. There are considerable challenges to managing and hosting your own spatial data, despite the reduced cost of computers and storage space. There are now cloud-based solutions

Extending 3D Models Beyond Application Dead Ends

Geospatial technologies are increasingly incorporating more detailed, dynamic and real-time information. The move to 3D data and models removes a layer of abstraction, and creates immersive environments that more closely resemble and model the real world. As these systems continue to compile more realistic and holistic views of our world, three dimensional data will be

Data Harvesting

Data Harvesting – SnowFlake Software The concept of data harvesting can be quite daunting to most users. It provides yet another theory to learn, more industry terms (round-tripping) to follow and, undoubtedly, there will be more acronyms to study. But the concept itself is really very simple. n effect, data harvesting is the gathering of

Harnessing the Power of Geospatial Data

Harnessing the Power of Geospatial Data For many organizations, such as governments, utilities, telecommunication providers, engineering .rms, and construction companies, geospatial data is critical to doing business. However, many of these organizations are not able to fully utilize their geospatial data because it is stored in many locations—desktops, .le servers, CAD (computer-aided design) servers, GIS
