Using the Human Senses to Fully Understand the Geospatial Sector

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

As we headed into HxGN Live 2013 two weeks ago, I was reminded of how many people don’t really understand what we do for a living.  To the layman, the geospatial sector can seem very complicated, and when you mention geospatial data processing, image compression or photogrammetry, people’s eyes tend to glaze over.

I believe there are better ways to communicate the power of geospatial solutions, and it comes down to thinking about our human senses and we use them on a day to day basis – something we all fully understand.

As humans, we continually take in information through all of our five senses. Our senses continually collect information about the change we experience. This sensory information is processed by our perception in ways that allow us to decide and act.  Our perception identifies, organizes and interprets the information our senses collect. For example, if you are crossing a road and your eyes sense that a truck is bearing down on you, your brain will process the information very quickly and tell you to act (i.e., jump back on the street curb).

By having the ability to process data through our senses, we are able to make smarter decisions that will keep us safer.   At Intergraph, along with the other Hexagon companies, this is precisely what we do:  help organizations see, process and act upon information for smarter decision-making.


Count Down to HxGN LIVE 2013: Podcast Preview of What’s to Come

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Next week, more than 4,000 Hexagon users will convene in Las Vegas for HxGN LIVE 2013 — Hexagon International Conference.  The event will provide tremendous opportunity for our users to network, gain key training insights into our Intergraph Geospatial 2013 portfolio and much more.

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by got geoint?, the official blog for the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) for a podcast that offers a detailed preview of what is to come next week.

In addition, Rob Mott, Vice President of Geospatial solutions for Intergraph Government Solutions, joined me for this interview and provided insights into our solutions for government, defense and intelligence.

Below is the full podcast.

Demystify the Point Cloud – So Much More Than a Surface Model

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

The annual Hexagon conference provides the unique opportunity to showcase our latest innovations to nearly 4,000 users.  While many of our sessions focus on product training, we also provide key insights into new innovations and unlock key secrets that allow our users to fully leverage geospatial data.

While there is increasing adoption of point cloud data, many users struggle to fully integrate this new content in their workflows. An important realization is that point clouds are much more than simple surface models – and should be treated as such. The difficulty lies in fully exploiting the depth of information that can be derived from point cloud content.

On Monday, June 3rd during HxGN LIVE 2013, we will be providing a unique training session that will offer more clarity around how to best leverage point clouds:

Demystifying the Point Cloud: So Much More Than a Surface Model (4 hrs)

For years, the adoption of point cloud data has grown tremendously. This course is designed to take you beyond the basics of point cloud data and teach you how to get the most out of this incredibly rich data source. Learn about the various types of point cloud data created and exploited by Hexagon products – from traditional airborne LiDAR, to the growing power of terrestrial laser scanners from Leica Geosystems, to the photogrammetric true ortho point clouds created by Semi-Global Matching in ImageStation®. We will demonstrate 3D and profile visualization and measurement of all these point cloud data types, as well as perform editing, classification, and exploitation of point cloud data in GIS and remote sensing software like GeoMedia® and ERDAS IMAGINE.
