Public beta of Geotrigger Service launched

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Yesterday,  Esri launched the public beta version of its cloud-based Geotrigger Service for developers to  create location-aware apps for iPhone and Android without using up their battery life. The beta Geotrigger Service is free and the official release will rely on feedback from developers.

Apps built on the Esri location platform will be able to gather business intelligence of the location of people and when the app is being used, adding location awareness and alerts to other services developers can take advantage of on the Esri location development platform. Developers will be able to design apps that send messages to users to signify when they arrive or leave an area defined by a geofence. (more…)

Research and Markets “GIS Market in U.S. 2012-2016″ Report reveals integration as a top topic

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

In a recent Research and Markets Report, “GIS Market in US 2012-2016″ the analysts discovered that many GIS vendors in the U.S. are adding integrated GIS solutions to their portfolios to avoid interoperability problems. These solutions are often seen as fully-integrated application in enterprise applications. End-users can integrate GIS solutions with design, analysis, and simulation software. It has become customary for manufacturing companies to integrate GIS solutions into analytical and simulation applications as part of the product life cycle, thereby extending the reach of GIS. Enterprise applications provide companies with asset management, planning, analysis, remote access, distribution of information, and controlling existing IT systems. Those vendors who have a history in providing design, analysis and simulation software from other industry perspectives such as asset management, planning, etc. can take advantage of this trend by integrating GIS directly into their existing product portfolios. (I have just returned from the Bentley Year in Infrastructure Conference in London where integrated GIS solutions was demonstrated).

“The analysts forecast the GIS market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 10.96 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand from the Government sector. The GIS market in the US has also been witnessing the development of integrated systems. However, the increasing government regulations and guidelines could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Spike smartphone IkeGPS laser based device features measurement with snapshots

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Spike (Smart Phone ike!) from IkeGPS is a laser based device that attaches to your phone to ensure that you can rapidly & accurately measure & model an object up to 200 yards (600 feet) away just by taking a snapshot of it.  For ten years, Ike has been designing measurement and modeling systems for industrial customers.Using the IkeGPS technology, Spike makes use of the smartphone’s technology and adds its own features. It incorporates a digital camera, 3D compass, a laser range finder and GPS that snaps onto the back of your phone and fits into your pocket.

Spike integrates your smartphone’s current technology with some specialized features of its own. It amalgamates a digital camera, a 3d compass, a laser range finder and GPS. It fits neatly into your pocket yet is robust enough to use every day.

According to Darrell Etherington of Techcrunch, “The benefits of the Spike and its powers are evident…telecom and utility companies, architects, city planners, builders and more would be better served with a simple portable accessory and the phone they already have in their pocket than by specialized equipment that’s heavy, bulky, requires instruction on proper use and lacks any kind of easy instant data portability like you’ll get from a smartphone app’s “Share” functions.” (more…)

Australian Telecom builds entire cable system around GIS

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

Ben Somerville, Spatial Systems Manager for Thiess, Pty, Ltd. In Queensland, Australia, talked about the work they are doing with the Australian Telecom at the Esri UC 2013 Survey Summit. He began by saying that Australia is 70% the size of the U.S. and has a population of 23 million. Less than 1 % of the population is connected by cable. They have over 45 million yards of cable designed with a project estimated cost of $40 billion which “may be different in reality.”
