This, in my opinion, is one of the better positioned magazines in the geospatial topic, it has closed 2009 with a masterful stamp; in its 7 editions kept a systematic review of free software and surveying equipment, in the latter (model 8, 2009) generalizes significant trends that are taking in the geospatial aspect and the incidence of some non-free platforms in the environment.
Here we summarize some of the main themes
Digital cities and how the acquisition of 3D Geo has given to LandXplorer Google Earth-style functionality.
- GIS for everybody, ArcGIS Explorer’s new version, now with more capabilities and as you see … the Ribbon as an irreversible trend.
- ESRI User Conference / Europe
- GIS, cadastre and land registration. This is an interview with Nick Land, who speaks about ESRI’s vision regarding the cadastre and how they see initiatives such as INSPIRE, Cadastre 2014 and WPLA
- There is an article on the Be Inspired Symposium
- There are no specific revisions, but advertising leaves us expectations in Total Station Focus Spectra. You just have to see it for wishful thinking.
- Also in advertising SuperGeo stands with its GIS Learning CD and SuperGIS Image Server
This is the central theme of this edition, in which a brief editorial scratch our curiosity of an interesting article on pages 24-26 about trends, achievements and challenges taking by the concept of data management in the network and how the geospatial environment is contributing significantly.
Surely 2010 will be a year in which web publishing application patches give continuity to this topic; reinforce this topic articles such as:
- Navteq wants to reach your destination
- The geolocation and its progress over time.
There are other issues; it’s worth browsing and downloading it in pdf for collection
