Geoinformatics, latest edition 2009

This, in my opinion, is one of the better positioned magazines in the geospatial topic, it has closed 2009 with a masterful stamp; in its 7 editions kept a systematic review of free software and surveying equipment, in the latter (model 8, 2009) generalizes significant trends that are taking in the geospatial aspect and the incidence of some non-free platforms in the environment.

clip_image001Here we summarize some of the main themes


Digital cities and how the acquisition of 3D Geo has given to LandXplorer Google Earth-style functionality.


  • GIS for everybody, ArcGIS Explorer’s new version, now with more capabilities and as you see … the Ribbon as an irreversible trend.
  • ESRI User Conference / Europe
  • GIS, cadastre and land registration. This is an interview with Nick Land, who speaks about ESRI’s vision regarding the cadastre and how they see clip_image002initiatives such as INSPIRE, Cadastre 2014 and WPLA


  • There is an article on the Be Inspired Symposium


  • There are no specific revisions, but advertising leaves us expectations in Total Station Focus Spectra. You just have to see it for wishful thinking.
  • Also in advertising SuperGeo stands with its GIS Learning CD and SuperGIS Image Server

The Cloud

This is the central theme of this edition, in which a brief editorial scratch our curiosity of an interesting article on pages 24-26 about trends, achievements and challenges taking by the concept of data management in the network and how the clip_image003geospatial environment is contributing significantly.

Surely 2010 will be a year in which web publishing application patches give continuity to this topic; reinforce this topic articles such as:

  • Navteq wants to reach your destination
  • The geolocation and its progress over time.

There are other issues; it’s worth browsing and downloading it in pdf for collection
