Real-Time Web Forecasting

Snowflake Software has finished a pilot project the UK Met Office. The pilot project was a response to the needs of the UK's highway authorities to respond to continuously changing weather conditions on the roads. Its results will be presented at Geo Web in Vancouver. The pilot concept was underpinned by OGC compliant Web Feature Servers and Web Map Servers. Snowflake Software's Web Feature Server - GO Publisher - serves detailed forecast data which is being updated every six hours. The forecast data predicts a range of road conditions including hazards at high spatial and temporal resolution. Because the client... (read more)

Near-real Time Snow Information

Satellite information on snow cover is now available through ESA's GlobSnow project soon after it snows. As well as posing a hazard to communities through transportation shutdowns and floods, snow cover is one of the most important elements influencing the planet's climate, meteorology and water systems. Understanding snow conditions helps us to predict floods and advance climate studies. Seasonal changes in snow cover mostly occur in the northern hemisphere. The average winter expanse in these regions affects 20-40 million sq km, with an equivalent water volume of 2000-3000 cubic km - about 1,000,000,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools. The sparseness of meteorological... (read more)

Real-time Oil Spill Detection

In September-November ScanEx has performed tests with real-time water oil spills detection technique using RADARSAT-1 space images, along the northern coastline of the Caspian Sea. The data reception and processing cycle includes the universal UniScan ground station and ScanEx SAR Processor and ScanEx Image Processor software. Data processing software products provide for manual and automatic detection of oil slicks on the sea surface. Positive results were obtained after the technique testing for oil spills detection on the Caspian and White Seas. The average RADARSAT-1 data processing and oil detection time constituted 15-20 minutes. RADARSAT-1 space images, received by the ScanEx... (read more)

Real-time GIS Updates in the Field

Intergraph, USA, has launched Intergraph Mobile MapWorks, a practical tool for performing on-the-fly field updates of geospatial information. Intergraph Mobile MapWorks is an iOS and Android tablet-based app for viewing, editing and updating field asset information in real time. It can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes and Google Play app stores. Today's mobile landscape requires the ability to quickly and easily manage all field asset information through intuitive interfaces that have become the norm of mobile apps, said Mladen Stojic, vice president geospatial at Intergraph. Intergraph's Mobile MapWorks allows local government organisations to more easily manage field assets through... (read more)

Real-time Risk Index for Satellite Operators

Scientists, satellite operators, insurance industry and government officials gathered on 7 February 2014 to discuss the latest advances in forecasting and ‘nowcasting’ that, for the first time, enable ‘real-time’ risk assessment of space radiation damage to Earth-orbiting satellites. The system is a result of the EU-funded SPACECAST project which, for the last three years, has investigated and modelled the physics of high and low-energy electrons and protons in near-Earth space. The system also provides risk indices for satellite operators of the space radiation in different satellite orbits. SPACECAST is led by Professor Richard Horne of British Antarctic Survey (BAS). He... (read more)

Real-time PPP Based on Galileo Signals

Since the launch of the last two Galileo satellites in autumn 2012, Fugro has been looking forward to demonstrating real-time Precise Point Positioning (PPP) based solely on Galileo signals. These two satellites have brought the constellation to a total of four satellites, the minimum required to permit calculation of a Galileo-only position. Fugro achieved this task on 18 March 2013, which was within one week of all four Galileo satellites being activated. Fugro is now generating Galileo orbit & clock corrections which can be used in conjunction with the Fugro G2 decimetre-level corrections associated with its GPS/GLONASS PPP service. The...
