Peter Large, vice president of Channel Development at Trimble, spoke at last week’s Geospatial World Forum in Rotterdam. He wove in the history of mapmaking, including the fact that Mercator was born less than 100 miles from the conference site, and remarked that when we look back at today, we may compare the explosion of technology and mapmaking spurred by the Internet in the same light as the Mercator’s time of the renaissance.
The northern coast of Java is important for the Indonesian people, with the north coast road forming the lifeblood of transportation on the island. Improved road infrastructure and growing manufacturing centers along the coast, are making the region the region an important driver for the national economy. Manufacturing industries from small scale to large scale can be found along the coast. For this reason, the region needs to be mapped in detail to determine the assets that exist in the region.
The plenary day of the Geospatial World Forum took place this morning in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, with presentations from infrastructure information leaders. Present on the stage were leaders from Topcon, Bentley Systems, Autodesk, and HP, with each presenting their vision for where the infrastructure workflow is heading. In addition to new technologies, the presenters also addressed some of the challenges they face. Following are summarized comments from each of the presenters.
Dr. Li Pengde, deputy director general, National Administration of Surveying and Mapping (NASG) of China, addressed the Geospatial World Forum in Rotterdam this week. The vision of the country is for dynamic mapping and open geoinformation services, with ongoing investments in their positioning and remote sensing satellites, and increasing economic benefits from Chinese geomatics companies doing business abroad.
China’s national goal for geomatics advancement ties into the emerging China Dream that has the country working together for advanced development. Ecology has become an important driver, with directives to better monitor changes on the land through dynamic surveying, with change monitoring and analysis, providing data, information and knowledge to decision makers.
Together with the U.S Geological Survey (USGS), NASA and TIME magazine, Google released an interactive time-lapse viewer of a full 25 years of images of Earth. The viewer provides insight into our changin planet with millions of Landsat satellite images. The Timelapse project, viewable on the TIME magazine site, provides a number of interactive snapshots of areas that have seen dramatic change.
