I have been invited to cover the Charlotte event, in which the most significant projects in innovation for 2009 will be awarded, formerly known as Be Awards, now Be Inspired. East It will be carried out from 12 to 14 for October.
Of the 17 categories I am interested in the Cadastral and territorial development, for which the finalists have already been named:
1 The SIG of Cáceres, in Spain.
This is a GIS development, from the City Council Caceres, which includes deployment to the Internet through Geoweb Publisher. The system contains more than 200,00 records, in about 500 maps, in a Geographics project that includes 30 categories and more than 300 features.
2 The municipality of Tiel, in the Netherlands
This development includes adaptation of FlexiWeb, which is a private application that makes the deployment of Geoweb Publisher more attractive. Apart from spatial data, it also includes documents, photos, and 360-degree views.
3 The 29 fire station, in California
This is a great smoke, integrating hydraulic design with different applications including CivilStorm and Transoft's AutoTurn. The development includes applications with 3D pdf, with a digital terrain model adapted to Google Earth and architectures with Sketchup!
