OrbitGT Announces Mobile Mapping Cloud Platform 3dmapping.cloud

 
June 19th, 2017 by Susan Smith

Peter Bonne, OrbitGT Geospatial Technologies, CEO, spoke with GISCafe CEO Sanjay Gangal at SPAR3D, about Orbit GT’s new SaaS platform www.3dmapping.cloud Bonne shared more about the product line with GISCafe Voice after the conference.

“Sharing your data with anyone in the world just by a single click, that’s what we’ve been promising and what we are delivering,” says Bonne. “Owners of a 3D mapping dataset, such as Mobile Mapping coverage, can now share with a single person or with many users within an organization in one quick action.  This simple concept will open up vast business opportunities for every data owner.”

Still a major challenge for people in many firms is sharing access to complex datasets such as Mobile Mapping data containing multiple imagery and LiDAR point clouds amongst co-workers. This capability has been available from day one in www.3dmapping.cloud.  Now you can make the same data accessible for anyone outside your organization as well as those within it. Whatever users could do on the desktop they can now do on the cloud. Transportation, telecommunications, and some government agencies are eager to use this technology, so that they can utilize it within many departments within one organization.

Boundless Announces Suite 4.10 and Strategic Partnership with Planet

 
June 14th, 2017 by Susan Smith

Andy Dearing, CEO of Boundless, discussed the announcement of Boundless Suite 4.10 release that has been their flagship product since the inception of the company. Dearing also talked about the company’s strategic partnership with Planet.

4.9 was released last year. In the new release, Dearing says that they have incorporated MapBox styling within their platforms, leveraging that powerful styling engine and code, and are able to bring those files into their Platform. “Typically, our technical GeoServer had a styling and rendering engine based in XML,” said Dearing. “We’re able to write a more powerful styling capability with this platform.”

For their developer community, Boundless has released the Boundless SDK, a web SDK toolkit that sits on top of their visualization platform, providing open layers for developers to quickly develop web applications from their webmaps or data. In addition, there are new contributions to the community release of GeoServer. The Boundless platform is built upon open source technology and open APIs that generate actionable location intelligence across third party apps, content services and plug-ins for enterprise applications.

GeoServer 2.11 is a community OS project whose latest version includes lower load times, enabling users to load data and bring it forward, which is especially valuable to those with large datasets. Load times are reduced to a fraction of their previous time. In addition, the Geoserver is cross functional with other data formats such as Esri shapefile, etc.

GISCafe Voice: What are some indoor map applications for ZEB-REVO?

The ZEB-REVO handheld mobile mapping device employs a highly robust 3D Simultaneous Localisation And Mapping (SLAM) algorithm, which enables the rapid creation of a 3-dimensional model of any space.

Since it does not require a GPS signal, the ZEB-REVO is at its best in complex, enclosed, multi-level environments, without compromising on the accuracy of data collection.
