A Unique Challenge for All Future Geospatial Leaders

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

The geospatial sector is comprised of some of the most innovative thinkers, solving the most pressing governmental and businesses challenges. A key part of nurturing this culture of ingenuity is teaching and inspiring the next generation of geospatial leaders.

Intergraph is embarking on an ambitious effort to cultivate creativity amongst students with our inaugural Geospatial Challenge.  The challenge will allow students to flex their problem solving skills using Intergraph’s innovations.

As such, we are calling on students who are participating in Intergraph’s Global Education Program, Intergraph U, to submit an abstract describing the scope of a problem, their geographical area of interest, and the dataset(s) and Intergraph solution(s) used.

The Geospatial Sector Faces the Music

Monday, April 16th, 2012

When thinking about the music business thirty years ago, only a handful of musical genres could be purchased as vinyl records or 8-track cassettes at the “record store.”  The platform quickly progressed from cassette tapes to compact discs and ultimately to the digital files, and the brick and mortar store has ultimately been replaced by e-commerce.  In terms of genres, we have so many variations of music that it’s virtually impossible to truly categorize all types.

Not only have music deliverables, varieties, and accessibility rapidly progressed, but also the industry itself – transitioning from a hierarchy of those recorded and promoted to a truly DIY approach, with intuitive tools for capturing music and endless vehicles for self-promotion courtesy of social media.  While many in the music industry balked at the rapid radical changes (fearing lost revenue), demand sparked innovation, enabling the masses to embrace and utilize technology as it emerged.

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

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.
