Bringing Geography into Everything

GIM International Interviews Ed Parsons
As Google’s geospatial technologist, Ed Parsons is responsible for evangelising Google’s mission to organise the world’s information using geography. GIM International caught up with this ‘man with a mission’ in Barcelona during one of his countless foreign trips. (By Wim van Wegen, GIM International) You’re the geospatial technologist at Google, responsible for evangelising Google’s mission to organise the world’s information using geography. Can you describe that mission? In many ways it’s quite a unique role since the number of people within Google that are really focused on outside the organisation is quite limited. A key aspect of the role is... (read more)

ESRI User Conference – A Preview

7th to 11th August, San Diego, California, US
The Annual International ESRI User Conference takes place from 7 to 11 August in San Diego, California, US. At the accompanying exhibition many companies from all over the world present products and services, often in close relationship to ESRI products. As may be expected from the location of the conference, most enterprises represented at the exhibition are US or Canada-based. But there will also be organisations from Russia, India, France, Japan and The Netherlands. The promised presence of Topcon, Thales and Leica Geosystems demonstrates the vivid and increas-ingly close coupling of GIS and surveying. This connection is also demonstrated by... (read more)

Exceeding All Limits

Intergeo 2005 Düsseldorf, Germany – A Preview
This year’s Intergeo, to be held at the Exhibition Centre in Düsseldorf, Germany from 4th to 6th October, is expected to exceed all limits. With opening extended to three whole days and exhibition space to 10,000m2, it certainly looks as though big things are expected. And if organiser Hinte-Messe predictions prove correct, some 17,000 visitors and 1,500 conference delegates will attend. Nearly five hundred exhibitors have booked a stand at the trade-fair. It is not only in statistics limits are being pushed. The theme of ‘Exceeding limits’ reflects a wish to increase awareness of European expansion, globalisation and its effect... (read more)

Downtown Dublin as a Lidar Point Cloud

A Highly Accurate, Diverse and Dense Annotated Laser Scanning Dataset of a City Centre
The advance of Lidar data acquisition technologies is substantially increasing the amount of spatial data obtained and it is becoming cost-prohibitive to process it manually. Artificial intelligence (AI) has now started to offer cost-effective solutions to analyse and utilize those big datasets. AI can be employed for scene understanding, accurately detecting objects and classifying 3D assets. These are the significant fundamentals of several applications including autonomous navigation, intelligent robotics, urban planning, emergency management and even forest monitoring. The most popular types of 3D spatial information for such applications are Lidar and imagery data. This article describes the dense annotated ground-truth... (read more)

A New Age (I)

GIM International Interviews David Schell, Chairman and CEO, Open Geospatial Consortium
On 23rd October 2007, at the annual Geoint Symposium, the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc (OGC) announced that Microsoft Corporation had joined the organisation as a Principal Member. This important milestone was reason for us to approach David Schell, OGC chairman and CEO, and to ask him about the background to, benefits and consequences of Microsoft membership. Mr Schell touched on so many interesting issues that we are publishing this extended interview in two parts, this first focusing on the new Microsoft membership. The second part, to be published in GIM February, will focus on topics including benefits of standards implementation,... (read more)

A New Era in Land Administration Emerges

Securing Land Rights for the World is Feasible
The challenge for the global land community is clear: secure land rights for all people, in all places, at all times. The response: a new era in land administration, one underpinned by a wave of innovative thinking and coupled with quickly maturing, scalable approaches that can be applied globally. Supported by world-leading private companies, modern geospatial technologies and a new professional mindset, the provision of global land administration that supports good land governance now appears to be a feasible objective within the current generation. This article charts the new way of thinking and uncovers why there are good reasons for... (read more)

Governing Marine Spaces

Stakeholders, Legal and Technical Issues
The governance of any geographical area, including marine space, is the management of stakeholder relationships with regard to spatial-temporal resource use for many sanctioned economic, social, political and environmental objectives. The authors explore a number of issues and identify a narrow approach to stakeholder participation as one of the greatest limitations to marine programmes and projects. Interests in marine space can be expressed in a variety of ways: sovereignty, jurisdiction, administration, ownership (title), lease, license, permit, quota, customary rights, aboriginal rights, collect-ive rights, community rights, littoral rights, public rights, rights of use, and public good. One feature of a coastal... (read more)
