Capturing, Modelling and Building the Reality

Interview with Aidan Mercer, Bentley Systems
Bentley Systems held its latest annual Year in Infrastructure Conference in London, UK. The event proved to be an excellent opportunity to take a look behind the scenes at Bentley, a leading provider of software solutions for advancing infrastructure. 'GIM International' talked with Aidan Mercer, global industry marketing director for utilities and government. In this in-depth discussion, he zooms in on the role the company plays in advancing the world’s infrastructure and how geomatics is a key element of many of Bentley’s applications.

The Revolution of Drone-carried Sensors

GIM International interviews 3D Robotics
The world of professional unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or ‘drones’) is changing. It is a matter of ‘survival of the fittest’ in terms of the hardware aspect: UAV manufacturers. The interest is now visibly shifting towards payloads and software to capture, visualise and process the data; UAVs are the apparatus, but it’s the sensors and software that really count. GIM International decided to touch base with a company that serves as a good example of the current transformation, and spoke to Chris Anderson, CEO, and Daniel McKinnon, vice president, from 3D Robotics. Read the interview here. (By Wim van Wegen,... (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)

Digital Oblique Aerial Cameras (1)

A Survey of Features and Systems
It has become customary for me to provide a survey article on digital aerial cameras in the April issue of GIM International every three years. The previous survey (April 2011; vol. 25:4) addressed small, medium and large-format cameras, while in April 2008 (vol. 22:4) the focus was on sensor architecture. This article and a follow-up one will centre on oblique aerial camera systems, the use of which is steadily growing for (3D) capture of urban areas and roads, railways and other corridors. (By Mathias Lemmens, senior editor GIM International, The Netherlands) After providing an introduction to oblique aerial imagery and... (read more)

Location, Place and Geography Are Key to Decision-making

GIM International Interviews Stefan Schweinfest
Earlier this year, United Nations secretary-general Ban-ki Moon officially approved the appointment of Stefan Schweinfest as director of the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) and, thus, the Secretariat of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM). As the importance of UN-GGIM continues to grow, GIM International talked to Schweinfest to gain a comprehensive progress update. Congratulations on your appointment as director of the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) and the Secretariat of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM). You are a statistician yourself, so one could say that it’s... (read more)
