Let's go global in this week's #WeekliiiRoundUp post, discovering those countries that are geospatially ready according to the Geospatial Readiness Index, a blueprint for decision makers in both the public and industry positions that is used by the United States (US) and United Kingdom (UK) to develop efficient geospatial capabilities, maintain a global competitive advantage, deliver better geo-enabled services to consumers, and contribute overall to robust national growth and development.
All of that - and much more - are included below. Read on!
Geotagging has never been easier. Learn how to put your Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, and other non-spatial files on the map in this week's #MeetTheProduct post and video about the GeoEnrichment capabilities of applications like Integrated Marco Commander.
What is the most geospatial ready country in the world? You might be surprised who is - and is not - on the list. Let's explore the latest results of the Countries Geospatial Readiness Index (CGRI 2019) in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.
Drone and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology has had a significant impact on the way we accomplish many tasks that once required much more expensive resources, like surveying. This is especially true for the Oil and Gas and Energy industries. Discover ways this technology is significantly reducing risk all while improving both the accuracy and timeliness of surveys and inspections.
While improving the safety of employees, UAVs are also able to protect the environment by identifying potential environmental concerns before ground is broken. Pipelines are extensive projects, and if constructed improperly, can have significant impact on the environment. If pipelines aren't placed properly, the results could be disastrous for everyone involved.
