OGC Seeks Comments on Web Processing Service 2.0 Standard

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) membership is seeking public comment on the candidate OGC Web Processing Service (WPS) Version 2.0 Interface Standard. In many cases geospatial or location data, including data from sensors, must be processed before the information can be used effectively. The OGC Web Processing Service (WPS) Interface Standard provides a standard interface that simplifies the task of making computational processing services accessible via web services. Such services include well-known processes found in spatial extract, transform and load (ETL) software and GIS software as well as specialised processes such as coordinate transformation and spatial and temporal modelling and...

Topographic Laser Ranging and Scanning: Principles and Processing

  Compiled by editors Jie Shan and Charles K. Toth, this newly published book provides a comprehensive and in-depth treatment of Lidar as an accurate, direct method for 3D geo-data collection of urban and forested areas. A total of 29 authors, mostly European and North American academics, contribute to the nineteen chapters. Chapters 1 and 4 treat the fundamentals of ‘Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation', laser ranging and laser sensor calibration. As technologies rapidly evolve, these detailed descriptions of contemporary airborne Lidar systems and terrestrial laser scanners (Chapters 2 and 3 respectively) may soon lose currency. It may...

Upgrades and New Features VisionMap Image Processing Suite

VisionMap, a leading provider of aerial survey and mapping systems, has released a new version of its A3 LightSpeed image processing suite. The new version includes several upgrades and new features. First is a new and improved task management mechanism, used for parallelisation of processing computations. This new task management enhances system scalability and performance. LightSpeed 3.2 was tested on extremely large projects, while performing AT on millions of frames simultaneously as several processing blocks. LightSpeed's user interface now includes additional user functionality. For example, users can more intuitively process imagery from multiple flights within the same project. The measurement...

Processing 40cm Products at European Space Imaging's DAF

European Space Imaging can now process 40cm imagery from WorldView satellites at its local Direct Access Facility (DAF) based near Munich, Germany. Imagery at 40cm is available from archive data or for new tasking orders from the WorldView constellation. The above image of London illustrates the benefits of the higher-resolution imagery. As the pixels are smaller, an image at 40cm is clearly smoother and provides more visible information. The image exposes more detail which makes it easier to differentiate between objects. Also colour variation is better defined, said product order manger, Tine Flingelli, after running tests on this near to... (read more)

Demand for AUSPOS Processing System Continues after US Shutdown

During the US shutdown, around half of the more than 5,500 GPS datasets processed with the aid of Geoscience Australia’s AUSPOS global positioning system were from institutions and individuals based in the United States. Since that time, almost one third of the 3,200 processing requests have come from North America. AUSPOS is a service that allows users to submit logged GPS data to Geoscience Australia’s website where it is processed with respect to a global GPS tracking network providing coordinates with centimetre-level or better accuracy. AUSPOS is used extensively by the Australian geospatial, mining and construction industries to establish precise... (read more)
