Dynamic GIS: On Demand Web Based Geo-Processing


Published on

An integrated geospatial system, the Dynamic GIS is able to translate change, on the fly, into actionable information. Completely connecting sensors to software and software to application specific solutions (through on-demand web based spatial modeling) ultimately provides a means to protect lives, infrastructure (property), and society. The Dynamic GIS supports the complete geospatial information lifecycle from capture to delivery. Sensor technology captures snapshots of geography for a given location over a period of time; this includes airborne sensors (airborne digital imaging, LiDAR, UAV), satellites, and terrestrial sensors (total station, GPS, video, terrestrial LiDAR, handheld devices). The next step is processing, which includes transforming vector, raster, terrain data into actionable information, with tools for fusing and integrating source content into software applications for the creation and update of geospatial data and information products. Managing, fusing, and sharing geospatial data across departments and regions, enables an organization to connect data and information. Finally, rapidly and securely delivering integrated information products ensures the right individuals can make timely decisions. This includes on-demand geo-processing over the Internet, to mobile clients and the cloud through vertical market-focused SaaS implementations.

What is the information cloud?The fusion of sensor technology with software produces the “Information Cloud,” where imagery iscombined with 3D point cloud data and connected with real-time, location-based intelligence. TheInformation Cloud encapsulates and preserves the source content from the various sensor inputswhile feeding the Dynamic GIS. With integrated software solutions, you can transform this data toproduce reliable and actionable information.
