Torturing to get extra information… Out of a pixel.

Friday, September 14th, 2012

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!

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

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.

Using GeoSpatial Tools in Teaching Language Arts

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Article source: 

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!

Makai Voyager 3D / 4D Visualization Software Web Application

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Article source: Makai Ocean Engineering

This video demonstrates a fully interactive visualization system that operates within a standard desktop web browser. This system is built around the Makai Voyager visualization software, and can be used collaboratively and remotely over the internet via a web browser. A visualization server streams rendered images to a lightweight client of bringing scientific visualization to a low-powered laptop or tablet with limited graphic computing power (e.g., the Apple iPad), regardless of the size of data being visualised. This feature will allow a user to access the highest caliber 3D models and geospatial data available interactively from anywhere in the world.

In the video, the window on the right side of the screen shows a client application that is opened in a web browser (Apple’s Safari in this case). This client application is operating through the web to control the visualization server, which in this case happens to be running on the same computer, and is shown on the left side of the screen. The program can be controlled from either the server side or the client side.

The new Demo 1.1 release is available at http://voyager.makai.com, and features Makai Voyager’s advanced volumetric data visualization and analysis capabilities.

More about Makai Voyager:
Makai Voyager provides an intuitive way to process, analyze, fuse, and display vast amounts of time-varying operational, scientific and GIS data in real time using basic hardware.

The software has application in LIDAR surveying, meteorology, oceanography, military, and others requiring a dynamic, immersive 3D platform for fusing and visualizing a wide range of geospatial and scientific information. It has the ability to provide real-time situational awareness for field units by synthesizing all model, sensor, and GIS data in one interactive 3D viewer. If you have an application that requires speed and flexibility, we’d love for you to download the demo and give us your feedback! We are open to customizing the software for specific applications.

The 1.1 release includes new features:

- Volume rendering of large 4D (3D + time) data models;
– Display of dynamic data on the ocean surface;
– Customizable graphs of scientific data; and,
– Faster streaming and improved WMS support.

The downloadable demo contains many of the scientific visualization capabilities of the Makai Voyager software platform. The full version of Makai Voyager will contain a wide variety of data import and fusion tools to import and process GIS and scientific data, and provide users with access to add-on modules for specific tasks (e.g., LIDAR analysis). Makai Voyager is cross-platform software, and runs on Windows (32- and 64-bit), Linux, and Mac OS X. The software is web-enabled and can be accessed from a remote device (e.g., smart phone or Apple iPad) allowing for remote, interactive access to the most comprehensive situational models. Please contact us about your application!
