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.

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.

City of Edmonton: Tracking All Outdoor Park Assets with Combined Intergraph and Leica Geosystems Solutions

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

 

For many cities with sprawling outdoor parks, the ability to track the condition of all park-related assets can be a tremendous challenge.  However, the City of Edmonton, Canada, met this challenge head on with a recent pilot program that uses Intergraph and Leica Geosystems combined products.

With more than 460 parks, as well as the largest expanse of urban parkland in North America with its North Saskatchewan River Valley parks, the City of Edmonton’s Park Branch required a robust solution that was flexible, easy to use and could leverage its existing park asset data.

For the pilot program, the Park Branch is utilizing the Leica CS25 ultra rugged tablet and the GG02+ GNSS Smart Antenna in conjunction with Intergraph’s GeoMedia®, a powerful GIS management and analysis product.  As we saw at Hexagon 2012, Intergraph and Leica Geosystems contribute to Hexagon’s comprehensive portfolio, addressing all aspects of the geospatial life cycle – from capture to delivery.

Geospatial Data Management and Exploitation for the Utilities Industry

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

 

Utility companies work with many kinds of geospatial data including LiDAR and imagery, and must efficiently manage and update asset information as well as their land base.  In addition, these companies are faced with environmental and safety mandates, which results in volumes of land use inspections, photos, field analysis and surveys that also need to be managed along with geospatial data.

Utilities companies need to be able to create value added data products, manage this information and get access to it when needed – for real-time decision-making.  Many utility providers have highly complex business models with a variety of field assets and large workforces, requiring a suite of industry specific solutions to address work design, network asset management, outage management, and integrated mobile work force management.

Small and Medium Sized Geospatial Enterprises Critical to the Value Chain

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

 

In the geospatial sector, small and medium sized enterprises (SME) are the backbone of innovation, creating specialized offerings that have made the industry what it is today.  Whether providing a solution that integrates into a larger organization’s offering, or creating new markets with completely unique products, it is safe to say that SMEs are one of the key reasons we have had such tremendous growth over the past decade.

I was recently asked to offer comment for an article on the value of SMEs in Geospatial World Magazine, and wanted to use this post as a platform to further elaborate on this topic.

GeoMedia Smart Client Obliterates Growing Disparity between Antiquated GIS Products and the Needs of Today’s Geospatial Contributors, Movers and Shakers

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Today, stakeholders across your organization know the value of geographic information, but often lack the expertise to run a traditional desktop GIS.  Online maps delivered by a web GIS are helpful, but these implementations often do not support the technical geospatial functions or flavored workflows required. Today, users need the power of GIS, not as a horizontal technology, but delivered in vertical market focused workflows.
