Apart from the magazine that a few days ago it was published By Geoinformatics, there are a few other topics posted this month on their portal that are worth sharing. Although some of these announcements seem to be sponsored, they contribute something to the advancement that technology is having and that sets the tone for what we can expect in the rest of the year, mainly in the integration of platforms and equipment whose gap is decreasing. . At least in theory.
Access to Virtual Worlds
- For its part, Safe Software has announced that FME will be able to access OpenStreetMap data, which would imply an important step in the linking of data that nearly 50,000 users have voluntarily contributed and will continue to do. Hopefully, other tools more popular than FME will join this alternative.
- Topcom has announced its newest GNSS receiver, which promises to work with double frequency and centimeter precision in a portable equipment. It operates with TopSURV and ArcPad, according to its "almost all in one" design, it includes GPS + GLONASS dual frequency receiver + cellular modem + Windows.
- SuperGeo launches its beta version of SuperGis Server, which complements the line of products that this company has for desktop and mobile. A few days ago I'm keeping an eye on This line, which by the way is quite accessible in terms of prices.
- Athina Trakas, Geographer of the University of Bonn assumes the European Directorate of Services for the Open Gis Consortium (OGC). This was closely linked in recent years to the Consulting Center in Geographic Information Systems CCGIS Germany.
- The OGC integrates web coverage processing as a supported format. It is interesting because it is not only to add a P to the WCS standard, since WCPS includes a standard for the protocol of extraction, processing and analysis of multidimensional coverage in both point clouds and images that contemplate this type of data.
