- In an article from the October 2012 issue of Professional Surveyor Magazine, David McKittrick, of Blue Marble Geographics, discusses the basics of GIS and how GIS technology can complement the tools in use by the surveying community.
- Matthew Beare and Patrick Cunningham outline the role of the OGC's Data Quality Domain WOrking Group
- As the demand for aerial lidar data increases, and as the systems gather increasingly large amounts of data, there is the correlating need to process more data in quicker fashion with better accuracy.
- Snowmelt, rain, ice and tides routinely deliver unpleasant surprises to Mainers in the form of flooding. Factor in the sea-level rise scientists predict from global warming and it can be hard to anticipate where and when coastal flooding might occur. But a collaboration between researchers and a Maine software firm could help municipalities plan for future flooding, in a way that minimizes the associated costs.
- The Earth is a dynamic body... Because of these movements, a position that was observed at one epoch or point in time may have a significantly different location within a reference frame at another epoch. Time-dependent positioning therefore becomes important for anyone who wants to use GPS to its submeter precision potential.
- There's an increasing need for highly accurate mapping, and Blue Marble is pushing forward to expand their products beyond coordinate and geospatial data conversion to data quality management.
- The Geographic Calculator, from Blue Marble Geographics, is the kind of utility program that allows the average surveyor to swim around in the geodetic pool without drowning.
