A map of over 280 million trees has been used to create the first high resolution maps of allergenic plants and trees of Great Britain. Detailing the location of key plants and trees known to produce pollen that can trigger allergies and asthma, the maps were produced, using Bluesky’s National Tree Map data, at the University of Exeter in...

Helicopter Simulation Made Realistic with 3D Modeling Software
Before they can take to the skies, helicopter pilots in training must practice with a flight and tactical simulator—a machine that uses computer-generated images to mimic the view and experience of flying an aircraft. The more realistic the simulation, the better.
Romain Janil, a 3D artist based in Paris, France, works with industrial aviation companies to make flight simulation as realistic as possible. He uses Esri CityEngine 3D modeling software to populate terrain databases with buildings and other landscape elements in a pilot's field of view.
"Helicopter simulations need to take place in over hundreds of thousands of square kilometers, or over densely populated areas like major cities, or sometimes both," said Janil. "I started to use CityEngine to add reality to the landscape for rescue and civilian helicopter simulation. It's the best tool to generate thousands of clean, geotypical 3D buildings with nicely resolved texture maps—even when there is no input data."
Janil said he developed a particular workflow that enables him to imagine and create a distinguishable and...
Geodesign Education Goes Global
José Francisco Rivas Valencia owns a land development company in Colima, Mexico. He lives 7,600 miles from Greg King, a GIS consultant based in Brisbane, Australia.
Yet Rivas and King meet once a week in an online virtual classroom—sometimes as computer avatars—as they pursue a Master of Professional Studies in Geodesign degree from a school located thousands of miles away from both of them: Penn State World Campus, based in State College, Pennsylvania.
In its broadest sense, geodesign combines the art of design with the science of geography to incorporate stakeholder input, creative design techniques, rigorous methodologies, spatial analysis, and mapping. A practitioner uses geodesign methodology to find the most suitable, environmentally friendly, and sustainable option for real estate development, agriculture, wildlife conservation, transportation, flood control, and many other applications. ArcGIS for Desktop, GeoPlanner for ArcGIS, and ArcGIS Online are used in these programs. They help students analyze data and visualize the impacts of their designs.
Interest in geodesign has spiked in the last several years. Not only does Penn State offer geodesign degrees and certificates, but the University of Southern California (USC) and the University of Wisconsin, Madison, also offer geodesign programs. The Geodesign Summit, held at...

May 22, 2017 -- Today the European Space Agency (ESA) announces opening of a new Earth Observation (EO) data hosted-processing facility ran by ESA and hosted by CloudEO, a Munich-based start-up company, which will be managing this service for ESA on the EOhopS portal. This free offer is limited to R&D users from academia and industries.
ESA is an intergovernmental organization of 22 member states, dedicated to the exploration of space. It has long been supporting scientific users and developers of EO applications by providing access to its own mission data and so-called Third Party Mission data. Through this partnership, ESA, upon evaluating a project proposal, will make satellite acquisitions from ESA’s partner agencies and from commercial data providers available for free to the broad R&D community allowing scientists and R&D users from businesses to analyze commercial and Sentinel data in a powerful hosted-processing environment for their projects. “This is amazing! It opens so many opportunities for research and development both by scientists and businesses ultimately benefiting the society”, says Prof. Dr. Patrick Ole Noack, who is teaching Agricultural Technology at Hochschule Weihenstephan-Triesdorf.
The EOhopS portal is indeed a very creative way to use GeoData utilizing diverse IT infrastructure, including ready-to-use GeoAnalytics in a complete package and on one...

FLAIR Act Introduced in Congress, MAPPS to Testify...
May 22, 2017 -- The "Federal Land Asset Inventory Reform (FLAIR) Act of 2017", a bill to create a current, accurate federal inventory or "cadastre" of all federal land, has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives and MAPPS has been invited to testify at the bill's hearing on Tuesday, May 23. The FLAIR Act, H.R. 2199, was introduced last month by Representatives Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and Ron Kind (D-WI), earning praise from MAPPS, the national association of private sector geospatial firms. "We commend Reps. Kind and Cramer for working in a bipartisan manner," said MAPPS Government Affairs Manager John "JB" Byrd. Since 2003, and as recently as February 2017, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has repeatedly designated ' Managing Federal Real Property' one of the high-risk areas within the federal government most

The EMU app puts data such as temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen from 52 million locations throughout the world's oceans at any user's fingertips. This data informs how livable marine environments are for ocean-dwelling species as well as the overall health of the ecosystem. Organizations involved in fishery planning, for instance, can use the EMU mobile app to review proposed boundaries with a better understanding of which habitats will likely harbor certain species and manage fisheries more cost-effectively. By using the EMU mobile app, industries that depend on fishing yields...
