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 Analysis and Modelling

The development of GIS and carto-graphy can be characterised as information rich and knowledge poor. That is, the amount of geospatial information collected using geospatial technologies, including remote sensing, global positioning systems and digital mapping technology, has been growing rapidly, whereas geospatial knowledge or ‘useful information’, for decision making in terms of real-world problem solving is rather limited. Terabytes of geospatial information in the form of satellite imagery, aerial photos and maps have been integrated into Google Maps and Google Earth so that ordinary people using a decent internet-connected home computer can zoom from space right down to street level...

ESRI-based Geospatial Curricula

ESRI (CA, USA) and two of its partners, Digital Quest, Inc. (DQI) (MS, USA) and Berkeley Geo-Research Group (CA, USA) will combine efforts to expand the educational programs for the quickly growing geospatial workforce. DQI and Berkeley Geo-Research Group (BGRG) have created a series of geospatial workforce curricula under the general banner SPACESTARS. The educational packages are composed of professional GIS and remote sensing applications, targeted data and tailored lessons and classroom support materials. ESRI software, including ArcView, Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst, and relevant ESRI Press books provide the GIS foundation. (read more)
