Monday, January 9th, 2012

Keynote presentation + demo’s from the first ever Google Enterprise Geospatial Summit in India held in December, 2011.

Over 250 CXOs joined Google Enterprise customers and partners in Mumbai and Delhi to discover how Google Maps and Earth are helping organizations innovate.

 

Panel Discussion from Intergeo – Aggregating Geospatial, Social media, and Authoritative Source Information

Friday, October 21st, 2011

GIS and Geospatial information is rapidly growing with the addition of social media and authoritative source information. The web, the cloud and the move towards making GIS ubiquitous so that more people can have access to information, has created more bandwidth to be able to view and interact with more different data types. But how do you get all those types of information into a usable format for the intended audience? What tools do we have at our disposal?


 

 

Here are some of the questions discussed in the panel.

  • What process is in place with various companies to create “authoritative source information?”
  • How is social media used to provide an accurate picture of an event or place, and integrated into a whole geospatial fabric? Give examples.
  • As data is growing in volume, what kinds of challenges do new data sources like crowdsourcing create for organizations?
  • New technologies include virtualize computing environments, the cloud and SaaS, social networks, more quantitative science and more integrative, analytic, predictive real time efforts. As GIS becomes more able to manage larger datasets, does it also become easier to use and allow more people to use it
  • How are multiple services integrated and shared so users can put data in a blog, with new web maps that support visualization, popups, and intelligence? Can this type of of technology used everywhere on any device, and integrated into social media and how is this accomplished?
  • Community Analyst, an easy application that was announced last year, allows “anyone” to create maps. Are there comparable products on the market that allow you to map data coming from various sources?

 

Panel Discussion from Intergeo – Integrating Geospatial and Architectural Design Data for Future Cities & Communities

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

It is important for engineering and facilities management data to be accessible in GIS databases. There are several possible reasons for this. Today, there is a greater need for accurate facilities management data, and for extending mapping to the indoor environment. The prevalence of BIM makes it possible to have detailed structural models of buildings, bridges and roads, which enhance the GIS database that may be used in 3D city planning. The availability of greater computing power, the cloud and ability to display 3D even down to a small mobile device open up extraordinary possibilities for design in a geo context. And finally, the need for sustainable design.

This is a panel discussion between Sanjay Gangal of GISCafe.Com & Andreas Ulmer of Esri Procedural.

Here are some of the questions discussed in the panel.

 

  • How important is it for engineering and facilities management data to be accessible in GIS databases?
  • How do the availability of greater computing power, the cloud and ability to display 3D even down to a small mobile device offer greater possibilities for the marriage of design and geospatial?
  • How can 3D visualization and satellite imagery data from geospatial be maximized in architectural and 3D cities design?
  • How should geography be changed, what are consequences of change, what are the alternatives scenarios?
  • How do we drive better performance out of faciities at all levels?
  • What can be pulled out of BIM to put in GIS and vice versa? Can you describe use cases?
