I would suggest that so called Big Data is dependent upon computing systems and applications that not only are capable of computational abilities, but are also geo-capable of multi-disciplinary, geo-refrepresentative of processes. erenced spatial analysis. Big Data questions occur where overlaps arise. They are 3D and reality based and lend themselves to geostatistical analysis. Simulation [...]

I listened in to a webinar today offered by the folks at Intergraph. They were presenting on the new GeoMedia 2013 and the title ‘Are You Ready to Transcend the GIS Status Quo?‘ piqued my interest. As they promoted the webinar in an email that crossed my desk, I thought I better touch base to [...]

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 [...]

Geometry is fundamental to Geographic information systems (GIS). Linking geometry to spatial and non-spatial information is the tie that enables spatial analysis, spatial operations and visualization or representation. Is it possible to have a GIS without geometry, even if it were possible, what would it look like and what benefits could it have? Samsung has [...]

GIS analysis lies at the heart of a geographic information system (GIS). Without spatial analysis, and unique analysis capability at that, the technology is nothing more than a fancy database retrieval system with graphics. In fact, without GIS analysis capabilities, one might very well wonder why they don’t just purchase a database program. The Esri [...]

A common lament from the ‘Big Data’ corner includes many data issues. I am not so sure all the discussion is aimed at addressing the issues accurately. While there are many issues related to the inter-connection of data, often linked with interoperability and standards, and supported with descriptions like sharing and collaboration, other issues [...]

The folks over at NPR have an article entitled ‘Odd Things Happen When You Chop Up Cities And Stack Them Sideways‘. Different cities were segmented into blocks and what appears to be other identifiable shapes. These included Berlin, Paris, Istanbul etc. The net result as the article shows, is various collections of shapes that are [...]

The advances in 3D technologies have profound implications for the medical industry. While 3D is certainly not new to medicine, new technologies from 3D dental imaging to heart disease imaging and orthopedic imaging among others are filling important pieces to the 3D human body. In many of the applications the imaging or 3D technology is [...]

The folks at Fertile Minds in Australia published an entry that describes how shade trees along roads can significantly reduce the cost of road repair (maybe this explains why all the German Landesstraßen seem in such good shape). The sun is the culprit for damaging many roads apparently, resulting in roads heating up to very high [...]

EventIDE is a .NET framework that now works with Microsoft’s KINECT product. Recent work has resulted in the development of full 3D body sensing and tracking that is shown in a short film (here). “The tracking method is based on automatic recognition of human body parts on a visual scene and estimation of 3D joint [...]
