New Romanian Geoportal Provides Quicker Access to Geospatial Data

The Romanian government’s Topographic Military Directorate (DTM) recently implemented a portal for geospatial data based on Esri technology. The DTM Geoportal is compliant with the established standards of Romania’s spatial data infrastructure (SDI) and joins the country’s other geospatial data portals including the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE) Geoportal and the INIS Geoportal. The new geoportal provides quicker access to critical geospatial data and greater collaboration among the agencies the DTM serves, such as the Romanian Ministry of Defence (MoD). The DTM Geoportal represents a big step forward for DTM and for the geospatial community in Romania, said... (read more)

New DTMaster Software from INPHO

INPHO (Germany) has launched new DTMaster software for checking, editing, visualising and classifying 3D point cloud data. The software offers a variety of tools for quality control. Additionally, with its layer-oriented data structure, DTMaster can handle DTM data of more than 10 million points at a time. Visual data checking is possible in mono, and optionally in stereo, by over-laying DTM data with georeferenced raster data such as image mosaics or digital maps. The support for interactive editing includes, among others, on-line contour-ing, perspective viewing, colour coding and hill shading. Bundling DTMaster with other INPHO products offers complete software solutions... (read more)

IGIplan v1.4.0

IGI has released a new version of IGIplan, which makes the solution more stable, powerful and useful. All new features are illustrated in video tutorials.   One of the new features in the package is live GSD Classification - Colorisation of DTM to determine areas where given data resolution is within your set constraints. This feature is supported for Digital Cameras (GSD), Analog Cameras (Scale) and Lidar (dots/area). It features a snappy live calculation: the classification adapts interactively whilst changing the parameters of the planning. Also added is Area Propose DTM, which dynamically calculates base-length and line distance in relation... (read more)

Digital Terrain Model of the Netherlands’ Busiest Bridge

The Van Brienenoordbrug bridge is the busiest in the whole of the Netherlands, with an average of 235,000 vehicles driving over it every day. Approximately 150,000 ships and boats pass under it annually, and it is raised around 150 times a year to allow them through. To keep this bridge safe – now and in the future – it was necessary to gain a complete picture of its current state of repair, so Geomaat designed a digital terrain model (DTM). The Van Brienenoordbrug is a large twin tied-arch bridge on the eastern side of Rotterdam. It carries the 12-lane A16... (read more)
