Geoinformatics March, continues the Open GIS

It has already left Geoinformatics’ this month edition, showing in its cover a Digital Globe satellite image of the South of Iran as a threshold for presenting the German company GeoServe’s services.  Continuity is mostly given to items previously written and we are pleased that the trend, at least for this year, for displaying open source technologies applied to the GIS is very clear; last month they spoke of gvSIG and now they’re focusing on other tools such as quantum GIS and Calypso.

A recommended reading, where it’s shown up what can we get (or smoking) applying the points clouds capture technology known as LiDAR.

Applying the gps to combat graffiti

clip_image001[2]The Calypso project

A comprehensive article that shows the advantages of this open source German’s native software applied to the hydrology.

clip_image001[3]Open GeoStack

An interesting position from Sebastián Benthall who speaks about the parties’ aggregation to the open source GIS software applied to GIS technologies and the way we can reach good levels using applications such as PostGIS, GeoGerver, GeoWebCache and OpenLayers.

clip_image001[4]Quantum GIS 1.0

Maintaining the previous gvSIG article style, this item tell us with great detail, what does and what doesn’t make this tool which is by now seen for many people as the most evolutioned open code software in this area.

  • Business Mashups
  • The GLONASS’ glory, GNSS update
  • A ScanEx company profile

Software reviews

Continuing with the high-performance team’s exploration, they make a GPS Magellan ProMark 500 capture equipment review. This article, called “ back to the future” must be read considering that its approach is somewhat reckless.


clip_image001[5]What Mapinfo brings

This is an interview with Pitney Bowes’ dealers which talks about the new software and the considering new separation after of the definitive acquisition.

clip_image001[6]There is also an interesting material regarding about all land machines known as Tough books.

Other not negligible interviews are:

· FME 2009

· The largest Cyclomedia scale display

· Geoserve


Just the same as previous, James Fee writes something brief but deep in content; in this case he discusses how to bring to the end’s user table the spatial analysis.

In conclusion, this is a high level reading as you can expect from Geoinformatics, here is the online version that can be converted to pdf and downloaded locally.
