Intergeo Preview 2011 (1)

Everyone who truly matters in the geomatics and surveying-related business will be travelling to Germany – or more precisely to the Bavarian city of Nuremberg – in the last week of September this year: Intergeo 2011 is being held in the Nuremberg exhibition centre (NürnbergMesse) from 27th to 29th September. The organisers are expecting some 17,500 visitors from more than 80 countries around the world to attend the trade show, while the associated conference is likely to welcome over 1,500 visitors – and you will probably be among them!

Galileo: Commercial Hopes Unrealistic

GIM Interviews Owen M. Goodman, Chief Operating Officer, Fugro N.V.
It is likely to be 2012 before the Galileo system itself is fully operational on a stand-alone basis, says this month’s interviewee Owen Goodman, and Galileo will never be a commercially viable service as long as GPS and Glonass are free. Given current plans, Galileo is heading inevitably towards a funding crisis. National security and defence agencies could make a substantial financial contribution, but this at the expense of Galileo’s status as a civilian system. The EU should leave the fulfilment of specialist civilian needs to commercial GNSS augmentation service providers and the makers of ‘RTK-type’ GNSS equipment, so that... (read more)

GNSS Positioning

Status and Features
Nowadays, GNSS receivers have scores – and often hundreds – of channels, enabling them to track GPS, Glonass, Galileo and Compass signals simultaneously. The whole workflow from satellite tracking to calculating the coordinates of the position in a preferred reference system can be conducted automatically in real time. The price of GNSS receivers has dropped steadily since the first GPS receivers came onto the commercial market in 1982. In conjunction with the latest product survey results for GNSS receivers (available at www.geo‑matching.com), the author puts today’s GNSS status and features in perspective.

ESRI User Conference – A Preview

7th to 11th August, San Diego, California, US
The Annual International ESRI User Conference takes place from 7 to 11 August in San Diego, California, US. At the accompanying exhibition many companies from all over the world present products and services, often in close relationship to ESRI products. As may be expected from the location of the conference, most enterprises represented at the exhibition are US or Canada-based. But there will also be organisations from Russia, India, France, Japan and The Netherlands. The promised presence of Topcon, Thales and Leica Geosystems demonstrates the vivid and increas-ingly close coupling of GIS and surveying. This connection is also demonstrated by... (read more)

Exceeding All Limits

Intergeo 2005 Düsseldorf, Germany – A Preview
This year’s Intergeo, to be held at the Exhibition Centre in Düsseldorf, Germany from 4th to 6th October, is expected to exceed all limits. With opening extended to three whole days and exhibition space to 10,000m2, it certainly looks as though big things are expected. And if organiser Hinte-Messe predictions prove correct, some 17,000 visitors and 1,500 conference delegates will attend. Nearly five hundred exhibitors have booked a stand at the trade-fair. It is not only in statistics limits are being pushed. The theme of ‘Exceeding limits’ reflects a wish to increase awareness of European expansion, globalisation and its effect... (read more)

Satellite Mapping in Bhutan

High-Resolution Imagery in Generating Spacial Information
High-resolution satellite imagery (HRSI) has significant potential for producing 3D spatial information products. Nowhere is this more apparent than in remote areas of the world such as the small Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. A project was designed to both demonstrate the utility of HRSI for medium-scale map production, and to pass these technological skills and tools to the Bhutanese. The authors show the potential shown by HRSI in meeting the spatial information needs of a developing country.<P> To support national development initiatives, Bhutan needs more comprehensive topographic and cadastral mapping. In many fields, ranging from environmental management to land and... (read more)

Land Administration Domain Model

Impact on Implementation of International Policies
An international group of land administration professionals initiated the development of a data model that facilitates the quick and efficient set-up of land registrations. Just as social issues benefit from proper land administration, land administration systems themselves benefit from proper data standards. The Land Administration (LA) standard has been available since 1 December 2012 as a formal International Standard, published as ISO 19152. This standard is expected to have an impact on the development of Land Administration Systems. The International Standard for the Land Administration Domain serves the following goals: Establishment of a shared ontology implied by the model: The... (read more)
