Organizations Require Powerful GIS Data Production and Analysis

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Whether a large business, an international organization or a governmental body, most organizations need clear and actionable information for effective decision making.  Powerful GIS management packages are the foundation for this and allow organizations to achieve the maximum value of their geospatial resources.

The most effective solutions offer simultaneous access to geospatial data in almost any form, uniting them in a single map view for efficient processing, capture and maintenance, analysis, presentation, and sharing.

New solutions make this possible, which offer modern functionality for an improved user experience, enhanced performance and scalability for enterprise databases, and timesaving tools such as dynamic and static text placement and automated labeling.

Understanding Our Changing World with Dynamic Spatial Modeling

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Understanding our world requires us to model and interpret the spatial relationships between human, social and physical geography. We live in a connected world of spatial and non-spatial relationships, and it is essential that we be conscious of these relationships, as this helps us to grasp the impact of our decisions on our daily lives.

Because we live in a world where human, social and physical geography is always changing, we need a way to dynamically understand our changing world.  A change requires us to assess the effect that event has had on the geography. Many times, this involves simulating, predicting, preventing and even influencing positive change.

Spatial modeling tools are a prerequisite to dynamically modeling and understanding our changing earth. Spatial modeling is the process of using spatial operators on a variety of geospatial datasets (for example, imagery, terrain and features) to create an information product. This involves using a set of procedures that simulates real-world conditions within a geospatial application, using the spatial relationships of geographic features and their attributes. From these created models, you can perform spatial analysis to derive information from data, such as distributions or patterns, using the spatial context of the problem. Actionable decisions require real information – not just data – and spatial modeling is key in driving these decisions.

Streamlined Geospatial Technologies Enable Better Decision Making

Monday, August 27th, 2012

More than ever before, we can sense the real world around us – from space, the air, and the ground.  Organizations need the right solutions for managing this data influx to both make sense of the changing world and smarter decisions in the face of any challenge.

Often, geospatial professionals are required to work with disparate products that may not work well together.  The best way to manage this change is to leverage a portfolio of systems and solutions that integrate geospatial image processing and analysis, GIS, remote sensing, and photogrammetry.

Intergraph recently hosted a webinar that illustrated how our current solutions meet this need, as well as introduced new innovations that will be included in our upcoming release.

Enhancing Crop Management with Geospatial Technologies

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

As we all know, the right geospatial solutions can be used for virtually any industry sector that needs spatial data for enhanced decision making. However, many of us in the geospatial industry often focus on only a few core markets.

Recently, Intergraph hosted a webinar about the use of geospatial technologies for better crop management.  The response was overwhelming.  Clearly, there is a significant demand for spatial data in the agriculture sector.

Using remotely-sensed data in agriculture analysis enables organizations to make critical decisions to correct issues with the seasonal crop.  Crop analysis such as characteristic definition, health and stress detection, change detection and understanding the effects of environmental factors can all be used to make efficient and valuable decisions in a timely manner.

Winners of the ERDAS IMAGINE – DigitalGlobe 2012 Geospatial Challenge

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Mladen Stojic, Vice President, and Geospatial at Intergraph SG&I

As many avid users know, ERDAS IMAGINE is the ideal tool for working with DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-2’s rich set of spectral information.

From an easy to use set of pre-defined band combinations for displaying the robust data, to the flexibility offered by the graphical Model Maker environment for designing and sharing new image analysis algorithms, ERDAS IMAGINE enables users to fully exploit and uncover all the information inherent in WorldView-2 imagery.

This year, Intergraph partnered with DigitalGlobe to launch the ERDAS IMAGINE – Digital Globe 2012 Geospatial Challenge, which provides the winner five WorldView-2 scenes of their choice anywhere across the globe from the DigitalGlobe archives.

3D Takes Hold for Enhancing Geospatial Data Analysis for Urban Planning

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

In the urban planning world, 3D technologies now play a major role in enhancing decision-making and information sharing.  By creating a compelling geospatial visual connection with internal stakeholders and the public, urban planners are able to provide clear and realistic project information, extending far beyond traditional disconnected model-based details.

In addition, as geospatial solutions are being embraced more in the urban planning arena, 3D enables organizations to better exploit the precision and power of their geospatial data, leading to quicker, more confident decision-making and visual communication in support of location-centric tasks.

We recently announced that the City of Virginia Beach, the most populous city in Virginia, has taken some unique steps to use Intergraph’s GeoMedia 3D to produce more intuitive 3D appraisal maps — showing the location, dimensions and other information pertaining to a parcel of land subject to property taxes — as well as maps requested by other city departments. South Carolina Department of Transportation is another recent GeoMedia 3D announcement.

With integrated 3D solutions, governments, businesses and other organizations can gain a clearer understanding of all of their visual and map data. With such a holistic picture, they are able to reduce errors that can arise from the misinterpretation of images – ultimately enhancing infrastructure management and land information management.

Intergraph continues to be a leader in this space with regular product updates. In fact, we just announced the release of GeoMedia 3D 6.1.1, enabling users to represent existing geospatial datasets in three dimensions through a new 3D map window. Users can also leverage the Live Link capability with this release, connecting the GeoMedia 3D map window to ERDAS IMAGINE®. This enhances the 3D view with ERDAS IMAGINE’s rich raster capabilities to support synchronized data sharing, viewing, editing, updating and analysis. Users can leverage these products together, integrating accurately processed imagery and terrain data from ERDAS IMAGINE.

The City of Virginia Beach and South Carolina Department of Transportation are just two recently announced examples of how governmental organizations can better enhance their overall urban planning with 3D geospatial data processing solutions.  As many local governments are dealing with budgetary challenges, it makes complete fiscal sense to implement solutions that fully unleash the efficiency and power of their geospatial data investments.
