Organizations Can Now Maximize the Potential of Radar Imagery

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Throughout the remote sensing industry, there is a growing awareness and interest for radar imagery.

From military intelligence and homeland security organizations to emergency responders, fisheries and offshore oil production providers, a wide range of organizations are rapidly expanding their use of radar imagery in new and innovative ways.

When we launched the Intergraph Geospatial 2013 earlier this year, we developed new enhancements that will allow these kinds of organizations to fully leverage radar capabilities.

For example, as a part of ERDAS IMAGINE 2013, the Radar Analyst Workstation is a fully interactive workstation  specifically tailored to the day-to-day operational requirements of a radar analyst.

IMAGINE Radar Analyst Workstation provides capabilities that enable easier, more thorough use of radar data resources.  The workstation is presented in the ribbon interface and includes tools to complete a variety of workflows, accurately and completely, with relatively little radar expertise. The interactive dynamic tools complete tasks such as flood mapping and oil spill detection with one button creation of vector output and reports. Users can also easily access the marine traffic website, correlating live ship tracking data with your analysis results.

We recently hosted a webinar that showcased the power of radar, demonstrating the new features in IMAGINE Radar Analyst Workstation, and illustrating the competitive advantages that Intergraph offers.

Enabling Real-Time Mobile Intelligence for New Zealand Police

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

For any police department, the ability to access, share and act upon the right data is critical for saving lives.  Much of this data is geospatially enabled to allow police forces to see precisely where activity is occurring and what type of response is taking place.

The New Zealand Police are deploying smartphones and tablets featuring Intergraph’s new Mobile Responder app to more than 6,000 frontline officers.

Linked to Intergraph’s industry-leading computer-aided dispatch software (I/CAD), the Mobile Responder app will help New Zealand field officers use smartphones to access critical information required for more informed decision-making.

In announcing this effort, the Prime Minister of New Zealand said that the mobile technologies would help police “access vital information that will help them prevent crime, catch criminals and protect New Zealanders.”

And this effort will have other significant benefits.  For example, the New Zealand Police estimate that officers will now spend more time in the field, reducing significant amounts of paperwork and increasing productivity by 30 minutes per shift.  This amounts to 520,000 hours each year or $304.8 million (NZD ) in productivity savings over 12 years.

Ecosystem Monitoring Around Wind Farm Development

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

The environmental impacts of wind farm development are always a major consideration when countries are exploring these alternative energy sources.  Wind farms tend to be ideally suited for expansive regions and coastlines where wildlife is abundant. While a good alternative source of energy, they are not without their impacts to the animal populations in those areas.

The United Kingdom is currently the world leader in offshore wind power generation.  Many UK organizations are already using geospatial solutions and imagery analysis for ecosystem monitoring.  Understanding environmental impacts on any change is a vital step in moving forward with energy solutions. For one such project, a leading environmental consultancy in the UK is monitoring bird populations living in areas developed for wind power generation. This organization specializes in freshwater and marine ecology assessment.

Using a proprietary algorithm for identifying and enumerating birds from aerial photographs, the organization has already collected tens of thousands of images in a single project survey.   Thus far, they have amassed over 87 terabytes of aerial photography.

Next-Generation Interoperable and Scalable Spatial Data Infrastructure

Monday, March 4th, 2013

As many data providers leverage standards-based web services for managing and sharing geospatial information, these organizations often require next-generation spatial data infrastructure solutions for cataloging and delivering enterprise geospatial data over the web.

As part of the Intergraph Geospatial Portfolio 2013 launch, we recently unveiled Geospatial SDI 2013 to address this current marketplace need.

Adhering to OGC, INSPIRE and ISO standards for web services and metadata compliance, Geospatial SDI 2013 can extend those offered in GeoMedia WebMap and ERDAS APOLLO.  It also provides the full set of services required of SDI implementations, and offers tools for the managing, monitoring and reporting of service performance.
