Analysis of the GIM International Readers’ Survey 2019
This thorough report based on the outcomes of the annual GIM International readers’ survey – reflecting the opinions of geomatics professionals worldwide – reveals the outlook for the mapping and surveying sector and offers manufacturers of geospatial solutions and service providers a clear picture of the ‘demands from the field’. This wide-ranging article highlights the opportunities and provides insights into the wants, needs and demands of the widening customer base related to geomatics and all its verticals.
Overview of photogrammetry
This extensive article on close-range photogrammetry explores the latest trends and developments. In which direction is the technology heading? How is the market developing? Is the range of vendors and solutions increasing or decreasing? These questions are the main ingredients in this report on the current state of photogrammetry.
The current status of Lidar mapping
Over the past two decades, airborne Lidar has evolved from a developmental technology into an integral part of the geospatial profession, and has gradually revolutionised the surveying and mapping industry. When is Lidar the right technology to choose for your survey project? This article provides insight into the major benefits of utilising Lidar technology, and also reflects on the state of the art when it comes to the technology itself.
Overview of indoor mapping
This article provides geospatial professionals with an overview of indoor mapping in general before zooming in on the latest trends and technological developments. It covers aspects including SLAM technology, reliable sensors and robust software. As indoor positioning continues to evolve – after all, we spend most of our time indoors! – there is a growing need for solutions that capture quality-verified data to provide the highest levels of accuracy. On top of this, the rising demand for scan-to-BIM projects makes interior mapping the next geospatial frontier.
Overview of aerial mapping
This comprehensive article about aerial mapping focuses on the whole aerial mapping spectrum, including oblique imaging, photogrammetric and Lidar mapping methods. It informs readers about the latest airborne data acquisition and automated processing technologies, plus products that can be derived from aerial mapping.
Overview of GNSS receivers
This report provides information about the GNSS receiver solutions currently available. What are the standards for positioning technologies? What are the main trends and developments? Which aspects should you consider before purchasing a GNSS receiver? What are the differences between the various GNSS receivers on the market? This article investigates all these aspects and brings the surveyor fully up to date when it comes to GNSS solutions.
Experts share their opinions about the latest trends and developments in the geospatial industry.
January - February issue
This article looks at ground-penetrating radar (GPR) signal processing techniques for road inspections and focuses on the latest trends and developments in the area of high-resolution GPR, and zooms in on the widely used application of monitoring road surfaces. One of the main elements covered is GPR signal processing and visualisation of the results, which is essential for GPR operators and end-users.
Industry Insight: Digital aerial cameras
We asked experts from renowned geospatial services companies on their experiences with digital aerial cameras. What are their main criteria when deciding on purchasing a camera system? And how do they choose the imaging software solutions? What are the most important camera parameters for their aerial mapping projects? This feature provides readers with the very latest insights on digital aerial cameras for mapping & surveying projects.
This article takes you on a journey through the Landsat program, which is the longest-running enterprise for acquisition of satellite imagery of Earth. Landsat 8 is the most recent observation satellite of the program, operating in the visible, near-infrared, short wave infrared, and thermal infrared spectrums. Landsat imagery is part of our daily lives. For example, the images we see on Google Earth often come from Landsat data. This read will inspire everyone who is interested in satellite imagery.
