The relationship between Asset Management Systems and GIS is growing stronger and more important, but often GIS professionals don’t have experience working with Asset Management Systems, and that can cause issues. To help, we are offering this short series of articles intended as a guide for GIS professionals.
There is a real need to create new, insightful information products that can be used to proactively investigate flood-prone areas across a whole range of scales – from sites to river basins to a national level. Elevation is the single most important variable in determining flood hazard levels, and we focus on this by developing three flood analysis tools. Each can be implemented at scale and is a significant undertaking. We hope these tools can provide more geographic context and shed light on some key hydrodynamic processes about flooding.
The multi-billion dollar a year activities linking aerial imagery with geospatial technologies expands more rapidly than you can blink an eye. Government and commercial contracts dominate the growth, especially for military, security, agriculture, and forestry applications.

With rapid urbanization and growth of the city, urban planning has received a major importance. This planning is done at various hierarchies to integrate a large region with a small area so that the development is done at a same pace. There are many legal documents made to promote development. Master plan is one such document which provides rules and guidelines for a planned development both at present and future.
Houston exulted in sprawling, hands-off growth. That’s no way to prepare for natural catastrophes.
NDVI is the most common index that analysts use in remote sensing. But how do you calculate it? What do NDVI values represent? How do Earth scientists use NDVI?
You probably grew up using ArcGIS… or QGIS…and every day, you sit down at your computer desk…and you do the same thing: You open up the same ArcGIS software…or QGIS software (albeit a newer version) because that’s what you know best.But have you ever asked yourself,Can I get MORE from using different GIS mapping software?
You don’t have to pay a king’s ransom to map the world. This is because you can do it all with free GIS software.
The best part is: These free GIS software give you the firepower to get the job done as if you’re working with commercial GIS software.
Jack Dangermond is an innovator par excellence, the Godfather of spatial analytics, the founder of Esri – the world’s biggest GIS software company. Jack Dangermond is the reason why the sprawling San Diego Convention Center has been buzzing like a beehive since Monday morning; the reason why more than 17,000 geo-geeks have travelled from over 130 countries to assemble at one place; the reason why city Mayor Kevin Falconer felt compelled to declare July 10 as the ‘Esri User Conference Day’.
