Canalys highlights importance of understanding local app store and channel trends
Canalys released its detailed smart phone shipment estimates by country for Q1 2012. Total shipments worldwide grew 45% year on year to 146 million units, but significant country and regional differences were apparent. Shipments in the US rose just 5% year-on-year, in marked contrast to the 81% growth seen across the Asia Pacific region. Shipments in China doubled and overtook those in the US for the first time. In Q1, China represented 22% of global smart phone shipments, while the US accounted for 16%. A year earlier these figures were the other way around. Of the top 10 countries for smart phones, half are now in the Asia Pacific region.
This demonstration highlights the integration of Bricsnet Enterprise software, an Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) with Building Information Models (BIM) in a Geographic Information System (GIS) environment using Onuma Systems software.
The use case for this demonstration highlights Property, Space and Asset data originating in the Onuma BIM environment imported via web-services to Bricsnet IWMS where this information is used to create a Corrective Maintenance Work Order, minimizing the time it takes for labor resources to manually enter this information from paper and electronic sources into the IWMS system.
Mr. Edward Redmond, Senior Reference Specialist and Curator in the Library of Congress, Geography and Maps Division, gave a lecture on the maps of George Washington. Mr. Redmond is not only an internationally recognized authority on George Washington’s maps but prior to his work with the Library of Congress he taught Early American History at West Chester University and is now working on an atlas of George Washington’s maps.
Can government be run like the Internet, permissionless and open? Coder and activist Jennifer Pahlka believes it can — and that apps, built quickly and cheaply, are a powerful new way to connect citizens to their governments — and their neighbors.
This presentation outlines the work completed by the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority (CLOCA) and their efforts to become a better scientific partner. The presentation gives an overview of the CLOCA implementation of the CUAHSI Database model, the process of creating Flood Vulnerable Mapbooks, CLOCA’s instance of Geoserver as well as a Flood Vulnerability Silverlight web mapping application.
Maps have a colorful past with authority. They have been use to mark the edge of reality, the boundaries of kingdoms, the domain of empires and the riches of nations. Neogeography rose in discourse with this authority. Once solely the domain of government agencies and large corporations, the mapping of our ability to map the world is being liberated. This talk explores examples of neogeography relative to authority.
Digital maps and online mapping tools are critical to understand authors mindsets, elements of plot and character development. GISetc has created a series of lectures showing how to incorporate GeoSpatial Tools in teaching language arts. These lectures are given by Barbaree Duke. She is a teacher who is developing curriculum & professional development courses to help teachers & students improve test scores & critical thinking with geospatial technologies.
The goal of GISetc TV is to share and create content that:
1. Excites students about GIS.
2. Is a resource for GIS educators and professionals.
3. Shares technological advances in the field of GIS studies.
4. Shares the adventures of GISetc in field studies, training, educational opportunities and more!
We live in the Global Location Age. “Where am I?” is being replaced by, “Where am I in relation to everything else?”
The Geospatial Revolution Project is an integrated public service media and outreach initiative about the world of digital mapping and how it is changing the way we think, behave, and interact.
The mission of the Geospatial Revolution Project is to expand public knowledge about the history, applications, related privacy and legal issues, and the potential future of location-based technologies.
Geospatial information influences nearly everything. Seamless layers of satellites, surveillance, and location-based technologies create a worldwide geographic knowledge base vital to solving myriad social and environmental problems in the interconnected global community. We count on these technologies to:
fight climate change
map populations across continents, countries, and communities
strengthen bonds between cultures
assist first responders in protecting safety
navigate our personal lives
The first episode covers what is involved in the geospatial revolution, the origins of mapping and geospatial technology, and a look at the use of crisis mapping in Haitian earthquake relief efforts.
