Mobile, Desktop & Web Collaboration in ArcGIS Online
April 22, 2013  by Matt Sheehan

We have spent much of the last year focused on ArcGIS Online. Our initial development efforts targeted mobile. Working with the Idaho Transportation Department, we have been building an online/offline mobile editing app. The data itself is part of a hosted feature service in ArcGIS Online. Using these hosted feature services, we have started doing analytic’s in ArcMap 10.1 and building Web apps for office based executives. The demo below shows the mobile, desktop and Web portions of this work.

Next-Generation Geospatial Solutions Enhance Volumetric Measuring Capabilities
April 22, 2013  by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial

During major mining efforts, knowing how much earth has been removed from a quarry or mine can significantly enhance overall project management.  Organizations need to be able to provide accurate measurements and reporting to ensure that the project is aligning with overall goals, as well as complies with current mining regulations.

In addition, organizations that store landscape or construction materials, such as gravel, sand or dirt, need to measure and analyze how much their surplus is being used at all times.

On April 30th, Intergraph is hosting a webinar called “Easy Volumetric Measurements Using Geospatial Technology,” which will guide users through a workflow for determining overall earth removal.

During this webinar, we will guide you through a workflow that enables you to determine how much earth has been removed from a quarry or mine. Likewise, this workflow could also be used by anyone who stores landscaping or constructions materials (such as gravel, sand, or dirt).

OGC geospatial technology issues to date
April 17, 2013  by Susan Smith

 Interesting to know what the Open Geospatial Consortium has been discussing lately in the way of geospatial technology trends:

“All predictions are wrong, some are useful. Predictions of geospatial technology trends have been the topic of recent discussions by the OGC Board of Directors and the OGC Planning Committee. One of my roles as OGC Chief Engineer is to offer a slate of “ripe issues” as a basis of these discussions. This blog provides an overview of the ripe issues developed in March 2013 and explains how they were developed. Future blogs will discuss each issue individually.

The ripe issues of geospatial technology identified in March 2013 are:

  • The Power of Location
  • Internet of Things
  • Mobile Development
  • Indoor Frontier
  • Geographers of the future
  • Geospatial Processing
  • Smart Cities
  • Policy implementation

These issues were developed by reviewing over 200 recent articles from information technology journals from IEEE, ACM, etc. as well as from geospatial industry magazines and other publications. Geospatial World’s recent “Thought Leaders Edition” was particularly useful in identifying issues from a geospatial industry perspective.
