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

Monday, January 12th, 2015

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.

Imaging Technology Comes to Emerging Economy

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

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.

GIS Student Video: Washington College GIS Program Provides Hands-On Training for Students

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

College students are the foundation for the next generation of geospatial leaders.  Fortunately, academic programs provided by colleges and universities like Washington College provide an opportunity for students to get real, hands-on GIS experience that will help them transition into fruitful careers in our sector.

While we often showcase videos from industry on this blog, we wanted to highlight a specific student video that compiles all of the great work done by Caitlyn Riehl, a senior in who serves as the Photoshop Team Leader at Washington College GIS.

One of the more interesting projects that Ms. Riehl worked on was restoring historic map of Chestertown, Maryland.  She spent many hours not only completing the restoring of the map to its original quality, but also coloring the map to give it a realistic touch.

Washington College is a small liberal arts college in a historic town that fosters a strong community and passion amongst its alumni.   In full disclosure, I am a 1993 graduate of Washington College.  Unfortunately, the college did not have a GIS program at the time, which further reinforces how much the geospatial sector has grown over the past 20 years.

Here is Ms. Riehl’s video.

URISA 2012 – Opening Keynote by Michael F. Goodchild (Part 2 of 2)

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Last year, Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) held its GIS-Pro 2012 symposium, which featured a keynote address by geospatial visionary Michael F. Goodchild.

The first part of Goodchild’s keynote address focused on how far the geospatial sector has come since 1998.  Specifically, he highlighted how we now have faster broadband connections and graphic accelerators, as well as massive amounts of data.  All of these things are driving today’s geospatial solutions through we still have challenges ahead of us.

The second half of Goodchild’s keynote address highlighted the global social constructs behind mapping.  Each culture has a different interpretation of mapping and what locations are worthy of monitoring – whether it is a sports complex, a Korean deli or a riverbed in Western Australia.  Goodchild also discusses how we are creating global mapping standards, as well as localized crowdsourced capabilities.

He also discussed “place-based GIS,” which is focused on core locations and how most cities have adopted standard subways maps (i.e. New York City).  This standard is ideal because “humans can use it.”

Be sure to check out part two of Goodchild’s keynote address at GIS-Pro 2012.

TerraGo Mobile for Android Brought to Life

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

It is no surprise that today’s geospatial enterprise has gone mobile.  Based on rapid advances in mobile solutions for consumers, government and enterprise users, we imagine that the future of geospatial technologies will keep moving in this direction in a very aggressive fashion.

In addition, for geospatial solutions to be truly effective they need to fully support those in the field – from the warfighter to employees dispersed in disconnected environments, providing advanced collaboration for enhancing decision-making.

Late last year, TerraGo announced the release of its TerraGo Mobile for Android solution, which allows users of Android devices running version 3 or above to access and update intelligent, portable, interactive GeoPDF maps and imagery.  This includes using georeferenced notes, audio, photo, video and Web services.

What is unique about this solution is that us enables anyone – even the novice GIS user – to collection data in the field using geoforms that can be easily updated and shared with pretty much anyone, anywhere.

Following is a video demonstration of TerraGo Mobile for Android.

How does Geospatial Intelligence work in the cloud?

Friday, September 14th, 2012

ESRI is one of the most well known names in geospatial intelligence and is certainly one of the largest forces for standards and systems unification in this area, and now they have their sights firmly set of making cloud technologies work for geospatial data.

Many industries and many users of geospatial data in their domestic lives are already utilising the cost reducing, de-localised, multi-platform benefits of using cloud-based systems, but when dealing with vast datasets that need to move at high speed and with the utmost security how can it outperform current data architecture models?

DGI spoke to John Day, Director of Defence Business Development for ESRI at DGI 2012 to find out.
