3D Mapping Portal

Agency9 (Sweden) has entered into a partnership with the aerial survey company Slagboom en Peeters in The Netherlands, to deliver a geoportal for which users can view its data products, currently “Geo-Oblique” and Orthophoto in one seamless integrated view. Unlike other portals in the market the user can conveniently see an object from all possible angles and use the data view that is best for the application. Additional data types will be introduced later this year. Adding Oblique Viewer extends the value of the 3DMaps platform as the leading solution for visualisation of 3D geospatial data. The combination of different... (read more)

Intermap Malaysia Mapping Programme

Intermap Technologies (CO, USA) has entered into a new distribution programme with the Sabah Lands and Surveys Department in East Malaysia. The program, called Digital Sabah, will make available high-resolution 3D digital elevation data and imagery covering the entire State of Sabah. Sabah, located on the Island of Borneo and the Malaysia Borneon state, encompasses one of the worlds few remaining rain forests, boasting wild elephants, orangutans, and other endangered species. Available now, the high-resolution data will be used to enable the State of Sabah to manage environmentally sensitive areas using Intermap's highly accurate imagery and elevation data. Expected uses... (read more)

Romania Flood Mapping Contract

Blom Romania has signed a contract with the Romanian national water authority to develop plans for the prevention, protection and flood mitigation effects in the Ialomita, Calmatui and Mostistea river basins in Romania. The total area of these basins measures some 13,776 sq km, equivalent to approximately 5% of the total surface area of Romania. The expected value of the agreement is approximately EUR2.3 million and work will start in 2011.     Specific objectives of the project are to create detailed hydrological models and to produce flood hazard maps using hydraulic modeling. Flood hazard maps will help the authorities... (read more)

Web-mapping Demonstrator

British developer of geographic information systems (GIS) software, Cadcorp, has provided unrestricted access to a hosted demonstration version of its popular web-mapping application, Web Map Layers. Prospective users in public and private sector organisations can now judge for themselves how well the application meets their particular requirements for spatial data sharing, by typing the URL of the demonstrator web site into their web browser. Cadcorp has populated the demonstrator with a number of layers of background mapping including OS OpenData for the whole of England, Scotland and Wales, and OS MasterMap data for the major conurbations. Dummy business data is... (read more)

Mapping Nocturnal Light Pollution

Fusing Hyperspectral Data and Photogrammetric Imagery
Artificial light in urban conglomerates causes nocturnal light pollution. Excessive light radiation is expensive as it wastes energy and not only impacts the environment but may also harm human health. Authorities are showing a growing interest in quantifying the amount of artificial light radiated at ground level in their jurisdiction. A recent project in Spain explored an approach based on fusing simultaneously acquired hyperspectral data and photogrammetric imagery. The resulting luminance maps are accurate and have a high spatial resolution. (By Jordi Corbera, Vicenç Palà and Fernando Pérez-Aragüés, Spain) Nocturnal light pollution is a side effect of industrial civilisation and accounts for... (read more)

Mapping the Indoor World

Towards Crowdsourcing Geographic Information about Indoor Spaces
The availability of mobile devices for all has boosted the demand for indoor location-based services such as indoor routing or indoor navigation. Both researchers and companies are trying to adapt well-known outdoor solutions to the requirements of indoor spaces. Crowdsourced geographic information is already a promising new data source for outdoor applications. A logical next step would be to apply this novel paradigm to the indoor world. The authors propose and discuss a new model that extends the scope of Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) communities – essentially OpenStreetMap – towards indoor spaces. This enables the open collection and usage of... (read more)
