Natural resource companies face the significant challenge of successfully prospecting, evaluating, and extracting materials and resources from the earth through mining and drilling.
From mineral exploration to discovering where oil drilling may disturb critical habitats, these companies need to collect and manage massive amounts of data. Often, this data can be difficult to access, prolonging or complicating their ability to derive valuable insights for smarter decision making.
Once the appropriate data is accessed, Geoscientists use powerful algorithms and processing capabilities to perform rapid “what-if” scenarios on huge and complex datasets. In addition, with the demand for localized resources like fossil fuels, minerals, and ores on the rise, these companies need a unique set of assessment tools for enhancing efficiencies and overall effectiveness.

Last year, we showcased a story of how the Netherlands-based, Dotka Data maintains a large and growing collection of historical aerial photography and maps, reflecting more than 200 years of history, and how it had selected ERDAS APOLLO to manage this data in conjunction with an exciting new e-commerce project.
Through this partnership, Dotka is working with the Dutch newspaper AD to offer its readers an opportunity to view current and 50-year old aerial photographs of their own homes.
As such, customers who maintain a subscription or purchase three newspapers have been granted access to a website enabling them to geocode their addresses to locate the relevant imagery, zoom in and out to view the details of their home and surrounding geography and order a free set of aerial images of their homes from 1960 and 2011.

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).

Leveraging geospatial data for various purposes across large, disparate organizations that span an entire country is a tremendous challenge especially when geospatial data ownership is decentralized across states. Along with understanding how to share the data effectively, different departments within different agencies need to access and process data in a variety of ways. Organizing and keeping data up-to-date across jurisdictions, while delivering that data in a common way and timely manner are all crucial factors in enabling national agencies and departments to make smarter decisions.
Intergraph was recently awarded a project to help one of Europe’s leading electricity and gas companies to organize and manage geospatial data for the entire country of Germany. Data covering more than 365,000 km² of land area is managed by this program and project specifications required keeping all mapping data up-to-date along with rapid delivery of the data to a variety of regional organizations.
Other important project requirements included:
- Usage of geospatial data services in low-bandwidth and offline networks to meet local and third party needs
- Reliability of the services to meet 24×7 demand
- Ability to serve a heterogeneous GIS environment with multiple end-user systems

Public Works departments manage and keep track of massive amounts of geospatial data. This includes a broad range of information, from digging permits, to inspecting, maintaining and updating a wide variety of assets (fire hydrants, manholes, pipes, street furniture and even buildings themselves).
To effectively manage and leverage this data for smarter decision-making, these organizations require flexible, web-based GIS solutions. Advanced geospatial functionality must be balanced with intuitive applications, enabling both subject matter experts and non-GIS-trained personnel to collaborate on work benefiting the public. Ultimately, these solutions enable departments to configure and deploy easy-to-use, map-based, task-oriented web applications.

Let’s face it: photogrammetric systems are not known for being user-friendly. As a result, trained professionals are often required to manage the full spectrum of a photogrammetry system’s capabilities. Fostering a silo within organizations, this can limit the power of this type of data, and its ability to be leveraged easily in other geospatial genres. Recognizing the power of photogrammetry, more organizations are now analyzing airborne, satellite imagery as well as UAV and oblique imagery for smarter decision-making.
Fortunately, as part of the new Intergraph Geospatial Portfolio 2013, we have launched LPS 2013, a powerful and modern photogrammetry system. With its tight integration with ERDAS IMAGINE® 2013, LPS 2013 enables users to access photogrammetry and remote sensing tools easily. LPS 2013 is well suited for projects involving varied types of data and further processing and analysis of airborne and satellite imagery.

With a new product release, you want the world to understand and experience its significance and value. With Intergraph Geospatial 2013, we launched more than one or two products. We launched a complete portfolio of products, touching every area of the geospatial workflow. We believe that this technology is the force behind smarter decisions, with relevance to organizations around the world.
Many organizations solely rely on marketing and communications efforts to update the marketplace on new product developments. However, Intergraph is taking it one step further by actually going on the road in support of the Intergraph Geospatial 2013 launch. This month, we are launching our world tour – a global roadshow that brings Intergraph Geospatial 2013 to key cities.
The first event took place on January 11, 2013, in Calcutta, India. Next week, we have a large event planned in conjunction with India Geospatial Forum. With additional events planned throughout India, and the world tour continuing across North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia Pacific, the tour will provide a means to experience and share the excitement and significance of this release with our customers and partners directly.

Over the past several years, we have seen a rising demand for spatial data infrastructure (SDI) services, which has also been fueled by legislation mandating that public bodies publish geospatial data for enhanced collaboration with partners and customers.
Web applications provide a means for making geospatial data available for public consumption. These applications act as clients for SDI services, which are also used for developing more advanced enterprise portal. To meet this need, Intergraph Geospatial Portfolio 2013 includes Geospatial Portal 2013.
Geospatial Portal 2013 removes the barriers associated with typical geoportal creation. Its powerful browser application allows users to visualize and share accurate geospatial data to collaborate with government agencies, commercial businesses, and the public.
