The stereo 3D viewing experience has always had some issues associated with it, with standard screens suffering from dim lighting and requiring the use of 3D glasses. More recently, fewer graphics card vendors are supporting traditional stereo displays. Vision Engineering, a global optical and digital innovation and manufacturing company, have now changed the game. CONTOUR is the future of glasses-free 3D stereoscopic displays, designed specifically for GIS professionals.
After the collapse of Brumadinho Dam, the mining industry has been under intense scrutiny. Although the safety and infrastructure stability of tailings dams has always been extremely important, now, with the world watching, it is more crucial than ever that dam monitoring programmes are put in place.
MotionMonitor-TSF, our latest service specifically designed to monitor ground movements in and around mine tailing dams, enables Tailing Storage Facility (TSF) managers and ESG compliance officers to monitor key TSF locations and provides an early warning of potential failure, therefore minimising financial and environmental impact as a direct consequence.
The European Space Agency (ESA) launched their ‘Port of the Future’ initiative to address a number ecosystem challenges within ports across the world, whilst also utilising space-based data and services. ESA funded a total of nine studies, providing a solution to one of four key themes: environmental sustainability and energy efficiency, digitalisation, infrastructure improvement and safety and security services.
The new Hexagon Geospatial CHEST Agreement for academic and research institutions in the UK and Ireland is ready for renewal and due to be in place this month. It has been great working with Hexagon and the CHEST teams again to review the offering and to work out how we can tailor the bundles to meet the changing needs of universities, colleges and research institutions across our region.
With over a decade’s experience in developing bespoke solutions for clients in the insurance, investment, and finance sectors, we were ideally placed when a South American banking group asked how remotely sensed data may enhance their risk management processes and improve their credit lending decision-making for agricultural customers.
Atlantic Hurricane Season 2021 is now very much underway, with the official season kicking off on June 1st. Predictions across the board are anticipating another above-normal season, and similarities with last year’s activity can already been seen with the first named storm, Ana, forming before-schedule, on May 22nd.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season 2020 finished up with a record-breaking number of named storms for the fifth consecutive year. With Hurricane Season 2021 fast approaching, it is hard not to anticipate another very active season, with trends from the last decade showing a dramatic increase in season length and in storm numbers and intensity.
Capella Space launched its first operation satellite, Capella-2, in August 2020 and now provides very high resolution (50cm) SAR imagery for any location in the world. With access to high quality imagery, a critical component of the needs of Geospatial Insight’s extensive client base, the cementing of a reseller partnership with Capella, which was announced earlier this year, was an obvious decision to further extend our capabilities in the delivery of global event response and asset intelligence.
As hydrology is the study of the distribution and movement of water both on and below the Earth’s surface, as well as the impact of human activity on water availability and conditions, it not surprising that remotely sensed imagery from both air and satellite has long been recognised as a valuable information source for data creation and modelling.
