GeoSLAM and Bentley Systems Join Forces to Take Mobile Reality Modelling Indoors

16 Oct 2017 09:00 CDT

GeoSLAM and Bentley Systems announced a partnership to enable the simple and fast production of hybrid reality models in any environment.

Mark Reid, VP of Product Management, GeoSLAM said, “GeoSLAM has already disrupted the reality capture industry by changing the economics of 3D laser scanning enabling buildings, infrastructure, and other challenging environments to be mapped at unprecedented speeds. The simplicity of the ZEB-REVO handheld mobile mapping system has also truly democratized laser scanning enabling anybody to document their facility, or construction site without being a survey expert. The next stage for us is to further improve how our results can be both interpreted and consumed within typical engineering and GIS workflows – and our partnership with Bentley is the perfect vehicle for this.” ...continued ...

Assessing Storm Impact in Puerto Rico with Remote Sensing and Digital Volunteers

16 Oct 2017 09:00 CDT

After the winds and rains of Hurricane Maria swept through Puerto Rico, the island was left in darkness. Electrical power generation was cut for 100 percent of households, cell phone towers went offline, and the airport and other ports closed operations, pending damage and safety reviews. In the days that followed, many municipalities, particularly in the interior, were entirely out of contact.

How severely were they affected? Had the flood waters receded? Were structures still intact?

Direct Relief regularly supports the network of non-profit Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in Puerto Rico, which often serves the role of first responder for low-income and uninsured people in times of disaster...continued ...

PM Urges Greater Use of GIS for Economic Growth

16 Oct 2017 09:00 CDT

Prime Minister [Jamaica], the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, is encouraging greater use of geographic information system (GIS) technology across all sectors in order to spur higher levels of economic growth and development.

He contends that despite Jamaica’s use of the technology over the past 25 years, its full potential remains untapped.

“It is certainly accepted by the Government… definitely at the administrative and executive levels. But we have still not yet moved to the point of utilising the technology where we leverage (its) predictive powers… which is to use it in a way to either prevent things from happening or facilitating things we want to happen,” the Prime Minister noted. ...continued ...
