How GIS Helps Drive Hydrography Data

There are more high resolution maps of the Moon and Mars, than the seafloor. Largely because of high costs and challenges at every stage of data gathering and processing. However, GIS-driven technological innovations have the power to change this with improved navigation and positioning systems and geoprocessing in real time for faster accurate surveys.

How GIS Supports the Planning and Development of Smart Cities

The Smart City model uses robust GIS for building urban resilience. The GIS framework seamlessly integrates with other technologies supporting visualization and analysis in real time. This becomes the mainstay of ‘smart’ management providing resource optimization, open and participatory governance and efficient management of city infrastructure.

Spatial Law and its Relevance to Geospatial Practitioners

Taking a look at spatial law and its application within GIS is the first of a three-article series on Spatial Law that focuses on the issues surrounding spatial technologies, the responsibilities and legalities thereon.
