My first impression

I have LiDAR data - and now what?

In a very interesting article recently published by David Mckittrick, where he talks about the implications of the proper knowledge of the techniques associated with working with LiDAR in GIS and referring to Global Mapper as a tool to support the processing of the data obtained. After reading the article I have [...]

APLITOP has in its portfolio of four application families: topographic projects, field applications with total station [...]

XPERIA mini X10, first encounter with Android

Within the plans of Geofumadas for the year 2012 is the test of Android applications, considering that it is an irreversible trend. We are aware that Apple will always be well-positioned at the mobile level but unlike anything that turns behind the closed circle of Apple, Android will inevitably grow. So […]

First Impression: Dell Inspiron Mini 10 (1018)

If you are thinking of buying a Netbook, maybe the Dell 10 mini might be an option. In price goes for the US $ 400, well below the original of the Acer Aspire One in the beginning. It is more or less (less than) equivalent to an Acer D255-2DQkk, clarifying that this version (1018) already [...]

Mobile Mapper 10, first impression

After the purchase of Ashtech by Trimble, Spectra has started promoting Mobile Mapper products. The simplest of these is the Mobile Mapper 10, which I want to take a look at this occasion. The Mobile Mapper Pro, CE and CX versions ended there even though it is still on the market that [...]

Bentley Map PowerView V8i, First Impression

I got a version of PowerView V8i Select Series 2 (Version 8.11.07), the economic line in the mapping area that Bentley hopes to exploit. At the beginning, some of my doubts in the previous post were removed when I showed the three lines of the geospatial area for 2011. For starters, instead of being a [...]

FastCAD, an AutoCAD Shadow

If they had never heard of FastCAD ... they should. I know, it is possible that for the first time they know that this program exists, but I want to take some time from this ice cream night with Oreo cookies to show a tool that we have something to learn even in the last paragraph. Why FastCAD is important Well, [...]

A look at gvSIG 1.10

After a few days of being geeSIG 1.9, my impatience for bugs of that version and other gajes, today I return to the gvSIG theme. Not having touched this software for a long time has been productive, because opening this new version and comparing it with the photograph I left that time is [...]

A look at the 100 Mobile Mapper

Recently Ashtech launched its new model of equipment, which was shown in the International Conference of ESRI recently, called Mobile Mapper 100, that comes to be an evolution with the characteristics of the Mobile Mapper 6 but with precisions superior to those of the ProMark3. In essence, this is the team that I believe Magellan will be supporting [...]

A look at ArcGIS 10

For June 2010 has been discussed will be available ArcGIS 10, which we believe will be an important milestone recognizing the level of positioning of ESRI in the geospatial field. Already in forums and other spaces we talk a lot, and sure of this to the User Conference of Julio, we can know much more. Level […]

TatukGIS Viewer ... a great viewer

So far it is one of the best (if not the best) CAD / GIS data viewers I have ever seen, free and handy. Tatuk is a product line that was born in Poland, just a few days ago was announced the 2 version of tatukGIS Viewer. The other viewers If we value the free programs of other brands, [...]
