4DMapper Launches Complete Geospatial Data Solution

4DMapper, a browser-based 3D geospatial data gateway, has been launched this week, changing the way geospatial data is stored, delivered, visualised and shared. Powerful cloud processing enables the fusion of multi-source content and seamless streaming of massive data files, immediately, to unlimited users on their browsers. According to 4DMapper, this turns the geospatial world inside out, enabling access to big data without local storage, hardware and software. Geospatial datasets are massive and growing: from Lidar, satellite imagery, photogrammetry (orthophotos, digital terrain models and point clouds) to laser scanner point clouds. Current management solutions involve shipping of hard drives, blind ftp transfers... (read more)

SilverStripe Builds Geospatial Open Data Solution

Wellington-based (New Zealand) web development company SilverStripe has recently launched a new geospatial-based website for the New Zealand Geospatial Office (NZGO). NZGO is a controlling body within Land Information New Zealand (LINZ). The site will be the main online presence for discovering New Zealand geospatial data and enables users to explore large amounts of geographical data from several databases.   This application enables researchers, for example, to access fundamental climate and environmental information. Making this information publicly discoverable in a reusable way will enable researchers to bring datasets together and draw new conclusions.   SilverStripe developed the application to provide...

Sharing and Reusing Geospatial and Modelling Data

Last month, Envitia, UK, announced the launch of Envitia Discovery 2.7 for modelling and simulation. Envitia Discovery allows organisations to seamlessly share and reuse geospatial and modelling data. Users are able to rapidly discover, transform and stream geospatial data into modelling and simulation applications using open standards. Powerful production workflows coupled with an intuitive web portal ensure that end users are never more than a few clicks from finding their required datasets. Envitia Discovery reduces the time spent hunting for data and instead allows more time for data visualisation and exploitation in systems. Envitia Discovery 2.7 bridges the gap between live...

Capturing Geospatial Data from Vehicle Platforms

Jacobs’ Journey
Jacobs Geomatics provides support and consultancy to the company’s wider design and engineering services. In recent years Jacobs’ UK geomatics team has been involved in increasingly large infrastructure schemes, typically supporting preliminary and detailed design phases of projects. This requires advising on solutions and the subsequent provision of suitable geospatial data. As the projects have grown in scale and complexity, the company has increasingly sought to supplement traditional topographical survey capture techniques with rapid data techniques such as terrestrial laser scanning, aerial photography and Lidar. Over the past three to four years, Jacobs has also become increasingly involved in vehicle-mounted... (read more)

Effective Use of Geospatial Big Data

Server Solutions Hold the Key
The heart of any geospatial analysis system, regardless of its location or configuration, is increasingly becoming the server. All systems face a similar challenge, whether the system is in the ‘cloud’, a secure data centre or on a single machine running in an office. This challenge is primarily the ability to deal with the ever-increasing quantities and variety of data the world now produces at an unprecedented rate. This article explains how, for mission-critical systems, purposely designed software is required that has been tested in the most demanding environments. Try doing it cheaper and you only end up wasting money.... (read more)

Great Britain Nation's Geospatial Data Management System

Ordnance Survey, Great Britain's national mapping agency, has selected an Intergraph Corporation-led team, including 1Spatial and Snowflake Software, to provide its next generation geospatial database and data management system. This selection followed an extensive tender exercise under the European Union Public Procurement Regulations, Competitive Dialogue Procedure. Ordnance Survey maps are internationally renowned and its data are essential to the country's government, business and individuals. The agency's national geographic database describes more than 440 million individual features - such as every house, road and field. Each year more than a million changes to the British landscape need to be measured and... (read more)
