The advent of drones has recently captured public attention – and fears. Just as the early adopters of the technology are accelerating their innovative ideas, developing real systems, the media is capturing attention from the opposite end of the spectrum with privacy issues. Unfortunately that fear is gaining at a time when the benefits of [...]

Spatial analysis is a key function when it comes to geographic information systems (GIS). Spatial analysis involves numerous methods such as location analysis, pattern recognition and cluster identification. The relationships between spatial features helps us to understand their significance in relation to each other. It is spatial analysis that helps us to explore, identify and [...]

The Centre for 3D Mineral Mapping (C3DMM) in Australia points to the use of 3D hyperspectral sensing being used for determining mineral deposits. The agency indicates several areas where this approach will be beneficial: Sub-surface Mineralogy: accessing capabilities determining hyperspectral signatures of drill cores and delivering seamless spectral mineralogy Surface Mineralogy: accessing capabilities to deliver [...]
