Intergeo Round Table Focuses on Digital Infrastructure

Regular exhibitors, members of the Intergeo advisory board, organisers HINTE and hosts DVW recently came together at this year’s Intergeo Round Table in the German capital city, Berlin. Experts agreed that the digital infrastructures we need are not so much a technical problem as an organisational challenge. Whether it’s the energy revolution, megacities or demographic change, said the DVW’s president Karl-Friedrich Thöne, geoinformation is the key to unlocking the main challenges of the 21st century. This is because, alongside providing and processing data, there is also a need for networking - in other words, the classic land management activities, he... (read more)

Singapore Builds National GPS Infrastructure Network

Trimble (CA, USA) has supplied GPS reference stations and VRS (Virtual Reference Station) software to establish a national GPS infrastructure network in Singapore. Covering the entire island-nation, the network provides a geospatial infrastructure for surveying, engineering and GIS professionals. The VRS network enables geospatial professionals to take advantage of highly accurate RTK GPS positioning without the need of separate base stations or software, significantly increasing efficiency and productivity. The Singapore VRS network, known as SiReNT (Singapore Satellite Positioning Reference Network), is operated by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA), the national organisation for cadastre in Singapore. Built with five reference stations,... (read more)

Blom Surveys Large UK Infrastructure Project

As detailed planning gets underway for Britain’s new high-speed rail network, HS2 turned to Blom to survey the UK’s largest-ever infrastructure project. With experience of working on prestigious projects, including the original Channel Tunnel Rail Link, Blom created the mapping and visualisation tools the HS2 consultants required. Utilising wide-format aerial cameras and Lidar (laser scanners) Blom captured high-resolution aerial imagery and laser data along the entire 225kms of the first phase of the proposed HS2 route to provide a complete 3D overview. The high-resolution 4cm imagery is then also used for subsequent 1:2500 topographic mapping and provides a permanent time-stamped... (read more)

First Southeast European Spatial Data Infrastructure

The Republic of Croatia has simplified access to countrywide geographic data through an online geoportal, a type of Web site that makes it easier for citizens, government, and private-sector users to find and access vast quantities of geographic information and related services. The geoportal has already proven its value as an essential component of the country's Organised Land Project. By making data more accessible, the average time for processing changes to land titles has dropped from a 400-day average to 37 days. The geoportal is hosted by the State Geodetic Authority (SGA) of Croatia .Dr. Željko Bačić, head of SGA,... (read more)

IDENA: Spatial Data Infrastructure of Navarre

Architecture, Metadata and Interoperability
Several years ago Navarre (Spain) implemented a Land Information System (SITNA) within its corporate Information System. Notwithstanding the success of this initiative there remains a lack of metadata, an issue highlighted over the past two years by INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial InfoRmation in Europe). This is the context for IDENA (Spatial Data Infrastructure of Navarre), developed by Trabajos Catastrales S.A., to give SITNA a catalogue of meta-information, distribution of metadata and interoperability with other SDIs. The 2004 Commission of the European Community publication “Proposal for a Directive of the European parliament and of the council establishing an infrastructure for spatial... (read more)
