Dramatic disruptions to Earth observation are being delivered by ambitious startups that are launching large fleets of small, interconnected satellites and developing cutting-edge analytics. The number of earth-gazing satellites has nearly doubled in 2014 alone. With views into daily global activity being refreshed at a faster rate than ever before, selling raw pixels and signals is not enough to satisfy industry demands. It is these startups that are changing how we use Big Data in business here on earth.

The Future of How Infrastructure is Made: Systems That Serve an Evolving Society

 
January 12th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Autodesk

This is a presentation from the 2014 Autodesk University.


 

Description

The need—and the ability—to innovate is greater than ever. New ways of working are needed to create our evolving society. Every system you design, from the electrical grid that lights and heats our homes, to water system that supports life, to the railroads on which we travel, to the refineries that provide the gasoline for our cars—underwrites a US$53 trillion demand for new or replacement infrastructure. Hear about the future of how infrastructure will be made, and the trends in technology that will radically transform the way you, as industry professionals, plan, design, deliver, and operate tomorrow’s infrastructures by moving infrastructure delivery into a new era.

Collecting Oceans Of Data – Problem Or Opportunity?

 
February 24th, 2014 by Skip Levens

Sensor, packet, video and signal data is not only all-digital and collected around the clock but it is also scaling up in size and resolution. The resulting massive surge in storage required to save it all is either a problem for your organization – or a major opportunity.

Plotting geophysical trends, tracking industrial changes or monitoring surveillance imagery requires both broad area spectral analysis and high resolution digital images. Ideally, you can combine multiple inputs for richer analysis to help make the most informed decision as close to real-time as you can get.

Michalske; Steven C. January 30, 2014

VEHICLE LOCATION SYSTEM 

Abstract
Techniques are provided for locating a parked vehicle using a mobile device. In one embodiment, the mobile device may automatically detect when a moving vehicle is being parked and save its GPS location at that point at the location of the parked vehicle. The mobile device may later output the saved location of the parked vehicle when a user, such as the driver of the parked vehicle, requests the information. In some embodiments, the mobile device may communicate with the vehicle in order to determine when the vehicle is being parked.

Imaging Technology Comes to Emerging Economy

Mexican university’s surveying department develops national education standards, gains acceptance of scanning

By Don Talend

The state of Nuevo León in northeastern Mexico is where technological progress and the preservation of historic architecture meet, if we are to judge by the recent imaging of a historic museum building with a high-speed laser scanner.

Starting in January 2013, the Civil Engineering Institute’s Department of Surveying at the University of Nuevo León scanned the exterior of the Regional Museum of the Bishopric—previously a palace for the bishop of the state of Nuevo León. Originally built by order of the Franciscan Bishop Fray Rafael Jose Verger in 1787, it was converted into a history museum in 1956. By the end of the year, the department was expected to scan the interior of the building, according to Angel Ervey Martínez, the department chair.

How Micro-Location, Geofencing and Indoor Location Are Driving The Retail Revolution

 
December 17th, 2013 by Sanjay Gangal

 Article source:  Christian Carle, CEO and Co-founder of Pole Star

Indoor Location has become the holy grail of location based-marketing, bringing consumers from their home to the closest shopping mall or retailer, greeting them with a message as they enter the mall or the store, helping them navigate indoors, send product information and special promotions as they get closer, and finally allow them to pay for the items right from their mobile.

With the hype surrounding the launch of iBeacon in the Apple retail stores, proximity sensors, also called proximity detection devices or micro-location, increasingly feels like a revolution.
