Pictometry/AutoCAD Civil 3D integration

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

 

Pictometry International Corp., inventor of measurable, aerial oblique imagery and analytics tools, launched Pictometry Integration for Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 and 2012 products at Autodesk University the last week of November. Now users’ high resolution geo-referenced aerial imagery can be accessed from directly within the AutoCAD Civil 3D workspace, enabling users to visualize and take measurements of real-world field environments, helping reduce the need for field visits. AutoCAD Civil 3D use has grown phenomenally over the past two-three years, and continues to climb, according to experts in the field. It will also certainly benefit Pictometry to gain access to Autodesk’s millions of users.

For your to-do list, try GeoFencing

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Research and Markets  announced this week the addition of the “GeoFencing: Enabling Location-Based Reminders, Ads, Promotions, Proactive Apps, Security & More”report to their offering.

What is GeoFencing? It is an application that runs automatically on your smartphone so that when you get near a relevant location, that location or vendor can target their services to you the user and to the location.

If you use your smartphone calendar and to-do list, GeoFencing will let you know you are passing a store that sells the item on your to-do list that you need. If you’re a retailer then GeoFending will run your shop’s app while a user is passing the store in that location, signaling him/her with an appropriate product suggestion. It is also good for advertisers, parents, for social networking, for interoffice communication, always letting you know of what or who nearby might be appropriate for you to talk to.

There are a number of hurdles yet to be scaled for GeoFencing, such as the fact that running the phone GPS might drain the device’s battery. Also, timing and the range of the GPS are factors.

Forecasting residential property damage data from Hurricane Sandy

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

Among the predictions made for Hurricane Sandy, CoreLogic released data showing potential exposure to residential property damage from hurricane-driven storm-surge flooding as Hurricane Sandy makes its way toward the U.S. Atlantic Coast.

“Based on current forecasts, Sandy is likely to make landfall along the northeastern Atlantic coast early Monday,” said Dr. Howard Botts, vice president and director of database development for CoreLogic Spatial Solutions. “Though it is still early and the projected path is constantly changing, Sandy could pose an enormous threat to major metropolitan areas in the Northeast, like New York City and Long Island, Atlantic City and Baltimore.”

The data shows more than 261,000 total residential properties valued at over $80 billion at risk for potential storm-surge damage among the coastal Mid-Atlantic states, assuming the storm hits the coast as a Category 1 hurricane. Within that region, more than 210,000 total properties valued at over $67 billion stand at risk in five major metro areas from Virginia to New York.
