Data Management Services

Solutions from Airbus Defence and Space
Easy access to repositories of space-borne imagery and other geospatial data is becoming increasingly important now that sensors are able to produce petabytes of data in the blink of an eye. The value of imagery to customers relies not only on its quality, but also on the ability to provide easy access to, and management and analysis of, the resulting geodata. Here, the author presents the geodata management services developed by the Geo-Intelligence programme line of Airbus Defence and Space and its strategic partners to serve the diverse needs of a broad spectrum of users.

Construction Data Management

Especially for the construction industry, 12d Solutions have developed 12d Field. This software module allows users to view and utilise entire project models in the field, enjoy real-time set out and pickup capability, import and export to all major file types and interface with most survey instruments.   After 3 years of development and over 18 months of rigorous onsite testing on some of the largest construction sites in Australia, 12d Field is only now being released internationally.   Previously surveyors onsite had access to only a small amount of data which was pre loaded (into a controller) and viewed...

Roundtable on RS Data Management

As remotely sensed data becomes more and more ubiquitous, organisations are looking for ways to correctly use and manage this information. Lawrie Jordan, director of imagery for Esri asks organisations to discuss how they are improving access to imagery by weighing in at the Spatial Roundtable. "Availability of imagery is no longer the problem, accessibility is," explains Jordan. "The landslide of imagery data is overwhelming. In response, users are shifting their work habits to handle this surge so they can get their jobs done quickly and more easily." At first, imagery was a special data type available only to the...

Data Modelling for Water Management

UML for Better Communication among Stakeholders
In 2004 the government agency responsible for water management in The Netherlands began a project to create an integrated geo-database for holding all geo-information on water-related objects. The set-up of the geo-database had to be sufficiently flexible for use at different management levels and geo-data had to be accessible using Web services. UML has played an important role in the project: it helps discussions, forcing designers and end-users to be specific. Because of its geographic location in a low-lying delta, water management is of prime import-ance for The Netherlands. Rijkswaterstaat (RWS), the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management, is... (read more)

Disaster Management

Space-programme research and development over the past five decades has culminated today in the broad practical application of advanced earth observation (EO) technologies. Satellite technologies are now reaching a level at which they can contribute significantly to relief efforts after natural disaster. It has often been proved over recent years that the rapid provision of high-quality radar and optical satellite imagery enables quick and detailed evaluation of disaster areas. The earthquake which hit Sichuan Province in China on 12th May was so strong that office buildings in Beijing (1,500km away) and Shanghai (1,700km) swayed; it left about five million people...
