Integrating Bricsnet Enterprise IWMS with BIM and GIS for Facilities Lifecycle Management

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Article source: 

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.

Google Earth Tour of Reefs at Risk

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Artilce source:  

Take a tour of coral reefs around the world with the World Resources Institute’s Reefs at Risk project and Google Earth. The journey to each of the six coral reef regions provides an overview of the biodiversity of reef ecosystems, their importance to people and local economies, and the types and magnitudes of threats that reefs face, illustrated with vibrant underwater footage of coral reefs and photos of activities that influence reef condition.

The Reefs at Risk project raises awareness of threats to coral reefs and provides information and tools to manage coastal habitats more effectively. For more information about the Reefs at Risk Project, visit http://www.wri.org/reefs .

Eric Wolf from the USGS talks about Neogeography, The National Map, VGI and Authoritative Data

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Article source:  

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.

City of Charlotte uses GIS for public service

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Article Source: Charlotte, North Carolina Government

This is an interesting video preaching GIS for government functions including public safety and other examples from Charlotte, North Carolina. Here is an excerpt:

“You could call it a digital swiss army knife, handy for many tasks, or you might think of it as a high tech method of “getting your act together” across time and distance. However you see it, GIS (Geographic Information System) is a big deal growing bigger. Combining geography with data from other collaborating disciplines creates a tool for solving previously mind boggling problems….”

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!
