  • Creating Spatial Information Infrastructures: Towards the Spatial Semantic Web

    Initiatives, such as INSPIRE and the US DHS Geospatial Data Model, are working to develop a rich set of standards that will create harmonized models and themes for the spatial information infrastructure. However, this is only the first step. Semantically meaningful models must still be developed in order to stimulate interoperability.    Creating ...

  • Principles of Geospatial Surveying

    Although sophisticated turnkey systems have virtually replaced hands-on work in the field, geospatial surveyors still have to plan and organize the work as well as remain responsible to clients and defend the work if necessary.
