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)

Bentley Infrastructure 500 Top Owners Ranking

Bentley Systems has announced during the BeInspired conference the release of its inaugural Bentley Infrastructure 500 Top Owners ranking. This global compendium of the top public- and private-sector owners of infrastructure is based on the value of their cumulative infrastructure investments (measured by reported net tangible fixed assets). Data sources for the Bentley Infrastructure 500 included published financial statements and third-party research. The rankings, which Bentley will update annually, make it possible to readily compare investment levels across types of infrastructure, regions of the world, and public and private organisations. Bentley Systems has compiled the Bentley Infrastructure 500 Top Owners... (read more)

Improving Accuracy of Mobile Underground Infrastructure Locator

InfraRadar, a mobile ground-penetrating radar infrastructure locator developed and manufactured by GT Frontline, recently switched to the Spectra Precision SP80 GNSS receiver. Company president Dick van der Roest said this was done because a good position is essential for a good survey and the SP80 performs significantly better than alternative systems. The InfraRadar, integrated with the SP80, is used to map underground infrastructures, including pipes, conduits and cables, as well as archaeological or geological features, and unexploded ordinance. According to Van der Roest, a significant number of GT Frontline customers require centimetre-level accuracy at X, Y and Z, which the... (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)
