Maxar collected new satellite imagery reported attack on ship

 
January 4th, 2024 by Sanjay Gangal

European Space Imaging (EUSI) partner, Maxar collected new satellite imagery on 26 December that reveals the aftermath of the reported attack on a Russian Ropucha-class landing ship at the eastern Crimean port of Feodosia. On yesterday’s imagery, the remains of the ship can be seen smoking and largely submerged after the attack while additional damage and burned buildings and other areas are evident on the adjacent quay. In the link provided below, you can download a couple of comparison images of the area—one from before the attack (collected on 5 December) and one after the attack (collected on 26 December). Please let us know if you have any questions about the material.

Navigating the Cloudscape: Trimble’s Strategic Vision in Geospatial Collaboration

 
December 1st, 2023 by Sanjay Gangal

In an enlightening discussion, Gregor Willhauck, the Cloud Solutions Market Manager at Trimble Inc., sheds light on the company’s innovative cloud strategy and its impact on geospatial data management. Trimble, a frontrunner in the field, is not just another tech company; it is a vision turned into reality, propelling the construction and surveying industries into the future.

The Core of Trimble’s Cloud Strategy

At the heart of Trimble’s cloud strategy lies the ability to store and access data seamlessly. The company’s primary focus is on enhancing the accessibility of data to a broader spectrum of stakeholders. This approach not only simplifies data management but also ensures that complex datasets are easily understandable and actionable.

Trimble Connect: The Keystone Product

Trimble Connect emerges as the centerpiece in Trimble’s product lineup. Boasting over 30 million registered users, this platform is a testimony to Trimble’s success. Originally favored in the building sector, its influence has expanded into the surveying arena. As a connected data environment (CDE) coupled with a collaboration  application, Trimble Connect serves as an accessible web application that invites diverse stakeholders to visualize complex data and utilize tools to interact with it.

Trimble Cityworks Expands GIS-Centric Enterprise Asset Management for Public

 
August 25th, 2022 by Susan Smith

Geospatial data  is one of the most critical elements for infrastructure improvement projects and asset management. The GIS provides context for where infrastructure is placed, its attributes, topography, maintenance history, and much more.  These attributes  track an asset’s  performance and catalog its proximity to other assets. Trimble Cityworks adds to this context by providing historical activity of when and how the infrastructure was placed, what type of work has been performed against the infrastructure, and the ability to identify the encompassing business risk should that infrastructure fail. With its platform architecture, Cityworks is able to consume various sources of data which inform organizations and assist with smart and efficient planning as stewards within their communities.

Cityworks was acquired by Trimble in 2019. It is built as a GIS-centric, platform-based software for asset management and permitting across the asset lifecycle with added capabilities for project management, contract management, and activity-based solutions. Cityworks, alongside e-Builder, a Trimble Solution that integrates on the platform, provides comprehensive asset management from the permitting phase through building and inspection into operations and maintenance. 

Recently within Trimble, a new sector was created that is specifically focused on owners of infrastructure and the public sector. The Owner &  Public Sector includes Cityworks and e-Builder along with Trimble Utilities and AgileAssets, which specializes in pavement management. These solutions are positioned as part of the construction sector with a focus on the public sector to and are focused on completing and fulfilling the different stages of the design, build, and operate process to provide a comprehensive GIS-centric solution for the public sector.  Read the rest of Trimble Cityworks Expands GIS-Centric Enterprise Asset Management for Public

AerialSphere Offers 360-Degree Aerial Panoramic Imagery at Higher Elevation and More 

 
July 18th, 2022 by Susan Smith

GISCafe CEO Sanjay Gangal recently interviewed Suzi Shoemaker, President and Chief Operating Officer at AerialSphere and owner of a Australian Shepherd/heeler mix, about AerialSphere, a 360-degree aerial panoramic imagery provider.

Sanjay: Suzi, tell us about AerialSphere.

SS: AerialSphere is a 360-degree aerial panoramic imagery provider, which includes geolocated information within every pixel of the image, giving the viewer the opportunity to overlay any type of data that has location information included.

SG: Okay, and how did AerialSphere get started?

SS: AerialSphere got started when two aerial photographers and entrepreneurs, one of those aerial photographers was an inventor, were introduced to each other right about the time Google Street View became popular. One of the entrepreneurs took a look at that and said, “Hey, I’ve done some drone work with some 360-cameras, but wouldn’t it be cool if we could do this with aerial imagery and be able to provide a mass capture imagery over major metropolitan areas, so that you could utilize the imagery to be able to do something very similar, but from a different perspective?”

The Leica AP20 AutoPole Addresses Customer Challenges with Total Stations

 
April 11th, 2022 by Susan Smith

Sanjay Gangal, CEO and president of AECCafe recently conducted an interview with Hans-Martin Zogg, Business Director of Total Stations at Leica Geosystems, which is part of Hexagon. Zogg spoke about the new Leica AP20 AutoPole which is product solution designed to increase the productivity of Leica Total Station users, and boost speed, accuracy and safety on the jobsite.

Sanjay: Tell us about the Leica AP20 AutoPole.

Han-Martin: The Leica AP20 AutoPole is an absolutely unique solution, which we have just announced. The AP20 is an enhancement to the productivity of our Total Station users, and is easy to use. When we develop product solutions at Leica Geosystems, we always want to address actual customer challenges. And with the AP20, we actually address three main customer challenges, which occur when customers are using Total Stations in the Total Station workflow. The first challenge is, when you measure the Total Stations, actually you need to hold the prism pole always vertical. So this slows up the measurement process.
