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)

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)

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. Dr... (read more)

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)

Hydrography is about Geospatial Data Availability

The Hydro16 event is taking place in Rostock-Warnemünde, Germany, from 8-10 November 2016. About 400 professionals have joined the conference and the trade show to update their knowledge and skills and to meet fellow professionals. Geospatial data is becoming an increasingly important issue on the agenda and there is a strong call for making the collected data available. The first keynote speaker was Peter Ehlers, reminding the audience that the venue’s location had been one of the alternatives to establish the BSH offices. In the end, it was decided that the office would be better placed in a more business-oriented... (read more)

UKHO Presents Guyana with Marine Geospatial Data

The UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has officially handed over marine geospatial data to the Guyanese Government after a campaign of hydrographic surveying. Delegates from UKHO presented the data to government officials at a special event to celebrate the completion of the survey. Two workshops were held to brief ministers and provide technical support for applications of the data, which will help Guyana support the development of its marine economy. The data, which was collected over a period of four months between 2016 and 2017, will initially be used to update nautical charts of the Demerara River. This will enable ships... (read more)

New IHO Guidelines for Hydrographic Geospatial Data

The IHO has published new guidelines for the development of product specifications for the creation of hydrographic geospatial data. Modern navigation systems and geospatial solutions use digital data from a variety of sources. In order to facilitate the integration of hydrographic data and applications, the IHO developed S-100, a hydrographic geospatial data standard that can support this array and that is fully aligned with international geospatial standards, in particular the ISO 19000 series. The aim of the new S-97 guidelines is to assist in the creation of harmonized product specifications utilizing S-100 for implementation within the e-Navigation ecosystem. This encompasses all product specifications... (read more)
