Mapping the interface between vehicle traffic and pedestrians

Mapping the interface between vehicle traffic and pedestrians

November 13, 2019

The curbside might not seem like the most obvious focus point in terms of mapping the urban environment but when you start to think of the curb as a highly regulated space and when you consider the number of arrivals and departures that that place on the curb in crowded urban cities you might just change your mind. The curbside is actually an interface between different vehicle traffic and pedestrians that has to enable a wide variety of use cases. Coord is helping organisations map the curbside, the assets on the curb and the locations of regulated spaces.

Creating maps for journalists

Creating maps for journalists

November 6, 2019

The move from printed media to digital media has had a huge impact on the way cartography is used and consumed. News rooms around the world are not only using maps to illustrate their written content but also as a form of branding. MapCreator is an online mapping software that gives journalists access to cartographic tools.

Geomob - Geoinnovation for the people by the people

Geomob - Geoinnovation for the people by the people

October 30, 2019

Geomob provides a forum to learn and exchange ideas about any interesting services and projects that deal with location. Everyone working in or curious about the location space or with location services is welcome. In this episode Ed Freyfogle introduces Geomob and draws parallels between the projects and ideas being presented in the Geomob community and the trends in the wider geospatial community.

Building footprints at scale

Building footprints at scale

October 23, 2019

This is the story of the confluence of open data, just enough availability of hardware, software, computing power and being laser focused about the industry you are trying to serve. Building Footprint USA is a small company that is curating and manufacturing building footprint data at scale. This is their story, how they got started, what problems they are solving and how they coexist free data.

Remote sensing and future of earth observation

Remote sensing and future of earth observation

October 16, 2019

The future of remote sensing and earth observation might be open, collaborative and involve much more end user education that you expect. Dr Aliastair Graham shares his observations based on 20 years of experience in the industry. Aliastair walks you through what a future where all data is open might look like, some of the projects that are focused on making data more "findable" and "usable" and the opportunities he sees in the industry.

A marketplace for geospatial data and workflows

A marketplace for geospatial data and workflows

October 9, 2019

Geospatial data is not always easy to find. The open data revolution and the abundance of data available on the global market have created a very fragmented environment and it is often difficult to know where to look to find what you need. UP42 is creating a marketplace for geospatial data ( all kinds of geospatial data ) and work flows to process this data. The idea here is that data and processes can be joined together link lego bricks to create workflows, these workflows can be then used by others and applied different geographic locations.

Geospatial visualisations matter - Civil engineering meets online gaming

Geospatial visualisations matter - Civil engineering meets online gaming

October 2, 2019

Removing the barriers to entry by making it easy to create immersive geodata visualisations that tell a story and explain a process. Maple Precision has incorporated insights from the gaming industry to create a platform that organises spatial data for a variety of different open data sources and lets users create 3D animations in web browser.

Using the geomagnetic field of buildings to navigate indoors

Using the geomagnetic field of buildings to navigate indoors

September 25, 2019

Every building has its own geomagnetic fingerprint and by mapping that fingerprint against a floorplan of the building IndoorAtlas is able to provide accurate location and navigation inside. The genius of this system is that it takes advantage of an existing geomagnetic infrastructure.  

In this interview you will learn 

  • How the geomagnetic fields of buildings can play a key role in indoor location
  • How differences between iOS and android dramatically affect indoor navigation
  • What are challenges of indoor navigation compared to outdoor navigation and how they are being solved.
  • What the future of indoor navigation looks like and how indoor navigation might be monetised going forward

The location context platform

The location context platform

September 18, 2019

Location gives context to data but it can also be used to give context to experiences. Radar is a platform for geofencing and location tracking. In this interview with Co founder Nick Patrick we discuss the opportunities around using location to deliver contextualised experiences to users, what these experiences look like today and what we can expect to see in the future.

Geospatial gives context to risk

Geospatial gives context to risk

September 11, 2019

Location intelligence is crucial to managing risk. WatchKeeper International is using real time data feeds from a variety of different sources to monitor and mitigate risk and location is the thing that gives context to the data. In this interview, I talk with the founder of a company who has built a platform that ingests geospatial risk data feeds in real-time, applies rules-based decision-making to automate alerts on adverse events in close proximity to assets or employees and allows users to rewind and replay past events.
