Three years of data collection the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Swarm satellites has resulted in the highest resolution map of Earth’s lithospheric magnetic field.
Sheila Steffenson discusses how the Arizona Department of Transport will be able to validate and integrate its own road network information with regular updates from multiple contributing government bodies within the state using 1Spatial technology.
Focused on providing satellite imagery for large-scaled natural disasters, the Open Data program will provide open and accurate high-resolution satellite imagery and crowdsourced GIS layers.
Similar to the semantic web, techniques have been created for GIS, where finding and applying geospatial data requires protocols and standards that allow the large variety of data to be more easily searched.
The Landsat series of satellites has been imaging the Earth’s surface for nearly 50 years, providing vital imagery for a range of purposes from the natural sciences to civil administration and conflict monitoring.
