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)

Bridging the Gap between Geospatial and Construction

There is certainly a gap in information exchange between the geospatial and construction domains. This is a serious issue, mainly because geospatial systems and engineering surveys are not yet aligned and integrated with building information modelling (BIM). The BIM method is expected to move construction activities from plan-based individual work to model-based collaboration. Such a paradigm shift will bring huge opportunities regarding planning, building and management of the built environment in a more productive, open and sustainable way. Although it is still difficult to entirely close the gap between these two fields, this article shows how that gap can at... (read more)

Towards Cadastre 2034

International Experts Speak Out
To what degree have the objectives of Cadastre 2014 been accomplished? What are the societal and technological dynamics that may affect the international practice of land administration over the coming twenty years? Bennett and co-authors from the University of Melbourne, Australia, have described six design elements relating to the role and nature of future cadastres, presented at the FIG 2010 congress in Sydney and published in GIM International (July 2010); an inspiring starting point for further dialogue. To encourage discussion we invited leading experts and practitioners to send us their own views and vision. We received no fewer than ten... (read more)

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)

Laser Scanning Technology Challenged

Shortcomings in Spatial Documentation of Heritage Sites
In this month’s Insider’s View Prof. Heinz Rüther puts some critical points on the shortcomings of laser-scanning technology in the spatial documentation of heritage sites. We invited manufacturers of laser-scanning sensors and software to comment on his challenging observations. Nearly 70% of the companies responded (ten in total) and seven felt qualified to reply: Optech, Riegl, Leica Geosystems, 3rd Tech, Visual Learning Systems, TopoSys and I-SiTE 3D Laser Imaging. We thank all respondents for their time and effort. Critical observations made by Prof. Heinz Rüther include the following. (1) The processing time of laser-scan data can be up to ten... (read more)

ITC and UNU

Developments in Geomatics Education (8)
In 2005 ITC (International Institute for Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation) Enschede, the Netherlands, became an associated institution of the United Nations University (UNU) in a co-operation focused on disaster management and land administration. Described here are the role of UNU and the ITC contribution. For 32 years now the United Nations University (UNU) has been delivering research and capacity building to resolve global problems of concern to the United Nations (UN), its peoples and member states. UNU, an autonomous UN organ with as rector a UN under-secretary, fosters intellectual co-operation among scholars, scientists and practitioners, especially in the developing... (read more)
