SDI Catalonia: A Regional Approach

Early in 2002 the government of the autonomous region of Catalonia (Spain) began the IDEC project (SDI of Catalonia). The first year was devoted to general planning and preparation and to creation of the appropriate collaborative framework. The following year institutional compromises and agreements were made regarding general understanding of the concepts, architecture and technologies proposed by the initiative. Last year, 2004, marked the implementation phase of this project. Add Value Platform The regional SDI currently offers via its Geoportal several services the most important of which is the multilingual Catalog Server, with more than 18,000 records of metadata (53,000...

E-Capture Launches 3D Tablet for Architects and Archaeologists

3D documentation work is an important part of an architect´s job. Monuments, old buildings, indoors scenarios, stairs, ornaments, vaults and suchlike have to be captured faithfully on a daily basis. All documentation needs to be generated quickly and accurately. Is there any single device which enables architects to capture and generate high-quality 3D models of all the elements to be documented? In response to that question, E-Capture R&D, a Spanish technology-based company, has introduced a new 3D accurate measuring tablet: EyesMap. The Spanish enterprise intends to revolutionise the world of measuring with this next generation of portable, easy-to-use and highly accurate instruments, optimal to fulfil... (read more)
