TerraGo Mobile for Android Brought to Life
January 24, 2013  by Matthew Langan

It is no surprise that today’s geospatial enterprise has gone mobile.  Based on rapid advances in mobile solutions for consumers, government and enterprise users, we imagine that the future of geospatial technologies will keep moving in this direction in a very aggressive fashion.

In addition, for geospatial solutions to be truly effective they need to fully support those in the field – from the warfighter to employees dispersed in disconnected environments, providing advanced collaboration for enhancing decision-making.

Late last year, TerraGo announced the release of its TerraGo Mobile for Android solution, which allows users of Android devices running version 3 or above to access and update intelligent, portable, interactive GeoPDF maps and imagery.  This includes using georeferenced notes, audio, photo, video and Web services.

What is unique about this solution is that us enables anyone – even the novice GIS user – to collection data in the field using geoforms that can be easily updated and shared with pretty much anyone, anywhere.

Following is a video demonstration of TerraGo Mobile for Android.

The Esri Vulnerable Populations Flu Impact Map and Health Information Map are available for media to embed or share as part of ongoing flu and public health coverage. The Vulnerable Populations Flu Impact Map displays crowdsourced flu reports by ZIP Code over Esri demographic data for seniors and children under five.

The Health Information Map shows flu surveillance reports from the CDC  and related social media. You can customize the map by zooming or panning and changing the keywords or date ranges to localize geo-tagged social content. Both the default map or your customized version can be embedded on your news site by using the Link button.


Meeting “Big Data” Needs with Advanced Geospatial Data Management, Analysis and Delivery
January 22, 2013  by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial

The government IT and corporate enterprise world is keen to grasp the opportunities and challenges with “big data.” In the geospatial sector, this is a challenge that we have managed for years.

Whether it is for forestry management or defense and intelligence, geospatial data is almost always classified as “big.” This type of data captures areas of interest in multiple views, providing insight on change and its ramifications. Utilized as a means for detailed analysis, this data is the foundation for high-level decision making within any type of organization.

As a comprehensive data management, analysis and delivery system, ERDAS APOLLO enables any organization to easily catalog, search, discover, process, and securely disseminate massive volumes of both file-based and web-enabled data. ERDAS APOLLO 2013 is a vital component of Intergraph Geospatial 2013, the industry’s only comprehensive portfolio, integrating photogrammetry, remote sensing, and GIS into a streamlined system.
