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!

Comparing Lidar and Photogrammetric Point Clouds

Point Clouds for Inspecting Flood Control Structures
Airborne Lidar and photogrammetry are both viable methods for capturing point clouds for 3D modelling of man-made hard structures. Although both methods produce point clouds, the manner of capturing data differs in many ways, resulting in point clouds with differing characteristics. In this article, the author evaluates Lidar and photogrammetric point clouds captured from unmanned airborne systems for inspecting a flood control structure. The New Orleans District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has been using small unmanned airborne systems (UASs) for land surveying, environmental monitoring, structural inspections and other applications. However, the characteristics of one UAS platform... (read more)

UAVs as Tools for Urban Planning in Uruguay

Photogrammetric Surveys of Irregular Settlements
Irregular settlements, also known as villas or favelas, present a big challenge in urban planning. When collecting data, whether to determine the existing situation or to plan future projects, topography plays a fundamental role. Not only is a large amount of information required but is also often difficult to access the locations, which makes capturing information much more complex than in the case of classical topography. Photogrammetry is the ideal methodology in such areas, and the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is a perfect tool for this type of aerial survey. Read on for details of this project in Uruguay.

Autonomously Detecting Fast Movements

GNSS Monitoring Solution onboard a Stand-alone Receiver
Diverse environmental effects, climatic changes and human alterations of the ecosystems are deeply changing Earth’s surface processes and creating environmental challenges that researchers are struggling to address. This article describes how the new Leica Geosystems’ Velocity and Displacement Autonomous Solution Engine (VADASE) technology helps scientists and engineers to receive actionable information about fast movements of man-made and natural structures as they occur. Running onboard a Leica Geosystems GNSS receiver, the autonomous solution assists professionals to take action, react, mitigate damage and protect life. The use of a highly precise time-differenced phase observation enables the calculation of the velocity of a... (read more)

Intergeo Press Conference: Looking Back and Forward

In line with tradition, this year’s Intergeo press conference once again took place at noon on Wednesday. Despite the press room being a little difficult to find, members of the international geomatics press came together to hear the views of the event’s key stakeholders. The press conference, which was based around the central theme of ‘Digital World – Connected World’, not only reflected on the past 20 years of Intergeo, but also looked ahead to the future of the geomatics industry. (By Wim van Wegen, editorial manager, GIM International) The speakers were Prof Dr-Ing Karl Friedrich Thöne, president of the... (read more)

Low-cost GPS Sensors for Deformation Monitoring

Monitoring Deformations on a Glacier with Wireless Sensor Networks
Deformation monitoring of glaciers is of great value to scientists with an interest in climate change. Due to the slow movements of glaciers, a semi-permanent deformation system is the best method to monitor the changes. Using low-cost GPS receivers that work in a wireless sensor network makes such a set-up feasible. Glaciers are large bodies of ice moving slowly downhill under the forces of gravity. On the way down, the ice deforms, creates crevasses, speeds up and slows down. The process involves huge forces. Monitoring these movements is of great scientific interest, but due to the slow dynamics a semi-permanent... (read more)

Five Years of ‘Works When You Do’

Geomax
GeoMax Zenith 10&20 RTK GNSS – a flexible system with all communication devices integrated. When GeoMax arrived on the international stage in 2008, many experts doubted whether there was room in the surveying market for another brand alongside the established big players. Now, five years and a major worldwide economic crisis later, GeoMax has secured its place in the sector. From the beginning, the company’s aim was to serve the fast-growing mid-range segment. In line with its ‘works when you do’ concept, GeoMax’s products are focused on offering an attractive price-to-performance ratio. This five-year milestone represents the ideal opportunity to...
