Transportation Management: LiDAR, Satellite Imagery Expedite Infrastructure Planning

By Waheed Uddin, professor of civil engineering and director, Center for Advanced Infrastructure Technology (www.olemiss.edu/projects/cait), University of Mississippi, University, Miss. For years, transportation projects have benefitted from aerial photography and ground surveys for land parcel management, route location, topographic surveys, digital terrain modeling and contour generation. Today’s infrastructure planners are fortunate to have a much

FEATURE EXTRACTION: Approaching Near Real-Time Mapping Solutions for Geointelligence

The ability to derive intelligence from airborne or satellite-based sensors in an automated or semi-automated way offers numerous advantages for government and relief agencies responding to global disasters and conflicts. It is also a key element in an early response system designed to guide decision making during the critical phases of a disaster. eCognition’s advanced

DATA SHARING: Mexico City Increases Emergency Response Capacity

On Sept. 19, 1985, Mexico City experienced one of the most devastating earthquakes in history. The magnitude 8.1 quake shook the city in two separate tremors, burying more than 10,000 people amid the rubble. Mexico City officials and citizens commemorate the event by conducting an annual citywide evacuation and simulation, organized by the city’s Civil

GEOGRAPHIC SEARCH AND REFERENCING: DoD Supercharges Location-Based Intelligence Transfer from the Analyst to the Warfighter

It’s not a lack of information that hinders today’s defense operations; it’s a lack of information convergence. A typical Department of Defense (DoD) unit has tens of millions of unstructured documents at its disposal, in addition to scores of aerial- and ground-based sensor data. But to be useful, all of that data must be correlated,

ONLINE IMAGERY: Intelligence on Demand Offers Online Access to Imagery and Analytics

Dozens of U.S. government agencies rely on sophisticated mapping and imagery to support their operations. But for many of the organizations within these agencies, it’s not practical to purchase and maintain a multimillion dollar server infrastructure to house terabytes of high-resolution imagery. For organizations looking for affordable, instant access to imagery, Lockheed Martin offers Intelligence

BATHYMETRIC LIDAR: Patrolling Sovereign Waters with Accurate Nautical Charts Charting the Torres Strait

Shallow waters, changing tides and seabed instability create difficulties in nautical charting. A prime example is the Torres Strait, which separates Australia’s Cape York, Queensland, from Papua New Guinea. Linking the Coral Sea to the Arafura Sea, the Torres Strait is 160 kilometers wide with an average of 12–15 meters in depth. These shallow waters
