2012 Predictions: Autodesk on GIS and Utilities

Monday, January 30th, 2012

GIS/Utilities

In 2012, utilities will begin to invest heavily in analytics in order to manage increasingly large volumes of data due to the rise of smart meters. Utilities and GIS companies are also exploring how this information can be used for real-time tracking and operations and to help drive business value.

Smart buildings will become important to utilities. Twenty-five states have energy-efficiency standards or targets and smart buildings can help meet these goals. The building energy analytics market will double between 2012 and 2015, jumping from $193 billion to $402 billion.

At Autodesk University 2011, GISCafe’s Sanjay Gangal interviewed Kevin Reilly, president of Pictometry Business Solutions, Pictometry, about the company’s focus and what new products they were introducing at the event.

Sanjay: How long has Pictometry been around?

Kevin: Pictometry has been around for a little over ten years. It is a disruptive technology company. We have a dataset that’s unique, we fly aerial imagery, we collect oblique images as well as ortho images, which is a rich dataset, and then we have an analytics platform that allows you to mine information from the imagery. What’s unique is every pixel has three dimensional elements to it, so you can measure anything you see on the image from height, distance, measurement, area. Every pixel has a lat long, so you can also measure elevation, and we can also bring GIS layers onto the imagery so you can displayed things like hazard layers, parcels, any other GIS layers can be displayed on the Pictometry platform.

Forrester Research speaks on the cloud

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

James Staten of Forrester Research spoke about the cloud at the recent Autodesk University in Las Vegas. He made a case for the cloud by saying that “clouds are more secure than you are.”

His recommendations:

  1. Focus – clouds can concentrate their whole security team on securing the one app.
  2. Exposure – when cloud outages happens every customer gets upset and they end up in New York Times. When your email system goes down it doesn’t show up in the papers. Because of that risk those creating the cloud invest heavily in the best security minds out there. Every one of those was given a job offer by Amazon, Microsoft, etc. at very high salaries. “If anyone breaks into my account I want to know about it. The cloud is concerned with extreme audits, a security expert, who they hire, who gets into the data center, whether they are making sure malware is up to date,” said Staten.
  3. Validation
  4. Multitenancy – there is far more encryption in the cloud model and it is far more difficult to see that another customer is there to alleviate concerns of privacy such as Pepsi and Coke using the same cloud service, for example.

 

Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler use on the upswing

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Director of Professional Services at IMAGinIT Kevin Breslin said at Autodesk University 2011 this week that they are seeing an uptake of Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler in their work as consultants.

Customers are using it a lot in civil engineering for conceptual design. They can put in roads, move and change things around and tap into their geospatial data and combine that with data in Autodesk Map and Civil 3D. Breslin said the visualization/analysis tool can handle large amounts of data.
