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)

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)

Common Geospatial Tool Set Programme for MoD

Geospatial consultancy Helyx, UK, has delivered on key objectives in the operational application of the Common Geospatial Tool Set (CGTS) programme being undertaken by Team SPARTA for the UK Ministry of Defence. Helyx is the team’s advisor in Geospatial Information eXploitation (GIX) strategy and is focussed on meeting the operational needs of the end user at all levels.     Under Phase 2 of the programme one of the Helyx-led investigations examined how the vision developed by the research could be achieved in the deployed environment, both in general and specifically for operations in Afghanistan. This resulted in roadmaps that... (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)
