3-D Geospatial Visualization, Simulation and Tracking with Thermopylae’s iSpatial Web-Based Geospatial Framework

 
January 30th, 2013 by Matthew Langan

Most organizations require access to the right geospatial solutions in near real-time to make critical decisions.  As geospatial data is the foundation for driving all decision-making – especially for the defense and intelligence arenas – it is critical to use the right technologies that can aid in this speed of deployment.

Thermopylae Sciences and Technology (TST) is a next-generation organization that takes a “Silicon Valley”-like approach to developing web-based geospatial capabilities to help meet this critical industry and government need.  The company’s forward-thinking approach to product development has allowed it to bring emerging technologies to its customers in ways that enhances organizational performance.

TST’s iSpatial solution is a Web-based geospatial framework that allows for rapid development/integration of applications on the Google Earth™ API.  Designed to reduce both cost and time to deploy a custom geospatial solution, this solution integrates with and leverages existing data sources to promote powerful visualization and knowledge fusion opportunities.

iSpatial provides pre-built tools that can be quickly adopted to specific use cases and delivers the best that Google Earth has to offer combined with capabilities developed by trained geospatial engineers.

Be sure to check out this product demonstration of iSpatial:

TerraGo Mobile for Android Brought to Life

 
January 24th, 2013 by Matthew Langan

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.

The Terrestrial Goes Extraterrestrial – National Geographic Channel UFO investigators get both scanning and surveying capabilities in one imaging station

 
October 30th, 2012 by Sanjay Gangal

Author: Don Talend

After decades—centuries, even—the question of whether or not life forms from other galaxies occasionally visit Earth remains unanswered. For the latest attempt to unravel this age-old mystery, the National Geographic Channel assembled a team of trained investigators to visit several sites where unidentified flying objects allegedly have been sighted. The network aired the investigations in its Chasing UFOs series in summer 2012.

Ben McGee (left), an investigator on the National Geographic Channel Chasing UFOs series, sets up a survey grid using the Topcon IS-3 imaging station while Scott Langbein, Topcon’s director of product marketing, provides technical assistance.

Whether or not the forensic investigations proved that some UFOs are actually spaceships transporting alien life forms is up to viewers to decide. As is the case with all programming on the network, viewers learn something about the planet in the process of being entertained. Among its own discoveries, the team learned something new about terrestrial positioning technology, too, having been equipped with an instrument that combines advanced imaging with high-accuracy surveying capabilities.

How does Geospatial Intelligence work in the cloud?

 
September 14th, 2012 by Sanjay Gangal

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.

With one of the most distinguished careers in the geospatial intelligence arena, including Director of NGA, Director of Naval Intelligence, Vice-Director for Intelligence of the Joint Staff and now a professor at the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism and on the faculty of the Maxwell School at Syracuse University in New York, Bob Murrett is very much at the forefront of geo and multi-int.

Bob shared his thoughts at DGI 2012 on exactly what and how the geospatial intelligence landscape is changing and what developements we can expect to see over the next 12 months and beyond…

Torturing to get extra information… Out of a pixel.

 
September 14th, 2012 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: 

Normally, DGI would never condone torture under any circumstances, but when it comes to squeezing the maximum information out of your geospatial dataset, then they all for it!

Making the most of your pixels — gathering the most data you can from your imagery is one of the most important factors in multi-int today and Digital Globe are on the frontier of research and development of new technologies, but before marching forward, you need to know your past.

To explain more, DGI spoke to Jack Hild, VP of US Defence Strategy at Digital Globe.

LAPD Slashes Car Crime by Arming Cops With GeoInt Technology!

 
September 12th, 2012 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source:  

Typically, geospatial intelligence is most commonly linked to defence and the military. While this may be true, more and more civilian organisations are utilising the power of geospatial information to radically improve their abilities. Unsurprisingly, the police force is one such area getting involved.

Associate Professor of Criminology, Law, Society & Planning, Policy & Design at the University of California Irvine speaks to DGI’s Online Editor Dan Mellins-Cohen about the innovative and highly successful implementation of geospatial intelligence by the LAPD to not only catch criminals, but proactively prevent crime.

Future’s ‘Cloudy’—and That’s a Good Thing

 
August 14th, 2012 by Don Talend

Newly released system of integrated, industry-specific software solutions boosts work efficiency across functional and geographic boundaries

One industry that is characterized by continuous improvement is information technology. An IT innovation for business that has begun to penetrate the mainstream of business activity is enterprise cloud computing, which utilizes groups of computers in various locations that aggregate data storage as well as Internet gateways for network access from any location. The result is a level of data processing power and storage that rivals those of local or wide-area networks—accessible to work groups that are spread out across countries, continents or the entire globe.

Field crews can store project data in a subscriber account that is accessible to other work groups, rather than in separate, self-contained field devices.
