Marine Geospatial Data Industry Seminar

The Marine Geospatial Data Industry seminar held at the UKHO at beginning of July attracted representatives from government departments and agencies, academia and from the commercial sector. The purpose of the seminar was to stimulate discussion on the potential development of a Marine Geospatial Data Infrastructure (MGDI) for the UK, the role stakeholders will play and how the initiative might be moved forward. Visits to key operational areas within the UKHO and product and service demonstrations offered a chance to see the UKHO in action and provided insight into the future of the UKHO, including its wider markets programme.

Geospatial Data Updating at Sea

The Network Centric Mapping Database (NCMD) Web Service Design
A growing problem exists with forward-deployed electronic chart display and information systems (ECDIS) in obtaining and updating geospatial data(electronic nautical charts). This problem is commonly referred to as distributing geospatial data over the “last tactical mile”. As a solution to this problem, the US Navy has developed software called “Network Centric Mapping Database (NCMD)”. NCMD is a software capability that automates data distribution, with a focus on geospatial data (vector map data, raster map data or imagery). NCMD has been developed as a web service and multi-tiered software application that allows deployed C4ISR system to autonomously obtain and update geospatial... (read more)

How-to Guide Geospatial Infrastructures

World Bank personnel are hosting a workshop at GSDI12 in Singapore in October that will explore the need for a pragmatic How-to Guide. The proposed guide would explicitly address the needs of developing countries in implementing and maintaining spatial data infrastructure at the sub-national and national levels. As input to the workshop, they would like to have your responses to a short survey. The short ten-question survey should take less than ten minutes to complete for the typical respondent. Responses will remain anonymous unless you desire make your identity and contact information available to World Bank staff. (read more)

Geospatial Excellence Award for RIEGL

The RIEGL VQ-820-G has won the Geospatial Excellence Award in the Technology Innovation category at the MAPPS/ASPRS 2012 Specialty Conference. The VQ-820-G introduced the world's first 'tightly coupled', shallow-water, land and smart echo waveform Lidar sensor. A live demonstration of the RIEGL VQ-820-G took place in South Florida from 12-16 March 2012 to showcase the capabilities of the scanner. The MAPPS awards competition recognises the professionalism, value, integrity and achievement that member firms have demonstrated in their projects and technology developments over the previous year. The Geospatial Products and Services Excellence Awards program has eight categories for projects and technologies... (read more)

Leading Geospatial Publishers to Combine

Two leading international publishers in the geospatial field are to combine their resources. PV Publications Ltd, publisher of 'Geomatics World', 'GIS Professional' and other titles, is to join forces with Geomares, publisher of 'GIM International', 'Hydro International', the Geo-matching.com database and other media. The two companies will establish a new business in the UK to manage and publish titles addressing both UK and international English-speaking readerships in surveying, geomatics, GIS and other aspects of geospatial practice and technology. Welcoming the move, Stephen Booth, managing director of PV Publications Ltd, said, “This is an exciting move for our readers. Demand for information... (read more)

Marport C-Tech and OSI Geospatial Team

Marport C-Tech has signed a teaming agreement with OSI Geospatial to integrate Marport's CSDS-85 Underwater Intruder Detection Sonar with the OSI Geospatial Asset Control and Tracking (ACT) system.     Marport's CSDS-85 surveillance sonar is a fifth generation Omni Sonar designed for the detection of undersea intruders such as divers, swimmers, swimmer delivery vehicles, mini-submarines and unmanned underwater vehicles. It can be deployed in a single-unit configuration for underwater surveillance or networked together to maximise area coverage.   The sonar can also be deployed from a ship to provide security in high risk locations, such as foreign ports. The system... (read more)

In Pursuit of Marine Geospatial Data Infrastructure

Hydrographic data are usually characterised by their geospatial nature, with tremendous and huge amounts of information that are usually abundant but are not adequately maintained, managed and represented for effective decision making. Such decisions are required at all hierarchies of governance — local, state, national, regional and at the international levels — particularly those relating to issues that are of interest to the maritime domain. It is therefore important to pursue the means of addressing these problems. The Marine Geospatial Data Infrastructure (MGDI), Marine Cadastre, Marine Administration or the Coastal Data Infrastructure is the new paradigm that caters for the... (read more)

Hydrography Geospatial Data Management for Malaysia

As the national hydrographic and charting authority in Malaysia, the Hydrographic Directorate of the Royal Malaysian Navy (HDRMN) has a mandate to collect measurements using modern techniques. It also provides adequate and timely hydrographic information to support safety of navigation, national development, defence and security, and numerous other activities related to the use of Malaysia’s marine environment. CARIS and local alliance partner OKENOS Sdn. Bhd. were selected to implement a Hydrographic Geospatial Data Management and Production System (HGDMPS) at the National Hydrographic Centre (NHC). The enterprise GIS, comprised of Bathy DataBASE and HPD, will allow NHC to increase organisational capability... (read more)
