Geospatial World: the World <i>Is</i> Geospatial

Communication Key Challenge for Near Future
In the vibrant city of San Francisco 1,250 professionals from 56 countries joined the 2005 edition of Intergraph’s user conference Geospatial World, held from 25th to 28th April. This year’s event drew more attendees then ever and provided many opportunities to look at the future of geospatial. More attendees every year – this means that the conference and technical programmes must appeal to visitors. And indeed, enthusiastic and dynamic conversations filled the whole of the Hilton Hotel during Geospatial World, a name that is itself almost becoming a trademark. Participants were able to update their knowledge by attending more than... (read more)

Geospatial Data Webinar

East View Cartographic is organising a webinar in which we will provide participants with tools needed to fully utilise geospatial data available. The event is to take place on Thursday 6th August, 12.00 - 1.00PM (CDT).     The data offered ranges from: paper and digital topographic maps; geological maps; Digital Elevation Models (DEM's); commercial satellite imagery.  These data sources enable professionals to solve problems from the very simple (a map for your personal or recreational use) to the very complex (a vector GIS dataset for your custom cartographic or analytical task).   During the seminar, EVC will also place...

India's Leapfrog Geospatial Industry

GIM international interviews Preetha Pulusani
An Indian geospatial magazine in April 2008 released a survey demonstrating how, although still adolescent, the Indian geospatial industry showed immense potential. The survey pegged the overall 2006-07 worth of the industry within India at Rs6830 million (USD139,50 million), with the services segment contributing 51%. Minister for Science and Technology and Earth Sciences Kapil Sibal was moved to declare that the industry would outperform the country's IT and telecoms boom. It's an enthusiasm shared by geospatial information systems expert Preetha Pulusani, who was appointed joint managing director of Indian multinational Rolta in March this year. We spoke to her about... (read more)

Academia and Geospatial Interoperability

Interoperability between Geospatial Information Systems is an area of increasing interest within academic institutions, not only in Geography and other geo-related areas but also in Computer Science departments. From the software-engineering point of view, a revolution may be said to have occurred in the way we design such systems, a revolution inspired by the appearance of OGC standards, guidelines and working documents. IAAA Lab The Advanced Information Systems Laboratory (IAAA Lab) is a multidisciplinary research and development unit in the Computer Science and Systems Engineering Department of the University of Zaragoza. Here OGC specifications are referred to, explained, and used... (read more)

Tomorrow’s Global Geospatial Needs

GIM International Interviews Christian Heipke
The International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) is one of the leading organisations within the geomatics sector and has a long-standing partnership with GIM International. We spoke to Christian Heipke, secretary general of the ISPRS, during the 2013 Geospatial World Forum in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Here, he shares his views on topics such as the growing role of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and oblique imagery – just two examples of major developments in data acquisition at the moment – as well as the future challenges for the industry. Congratulations on receiving the Photogrammetric (Fairchild) Award, the highest scientific... (read more)
