It is with great satisfaction that we announce the launch of the first issue of TwinGeo magazine, which features the term Geo-engineering as its cover story. The magazine will have a quarterly periodicity, with digital edition enriched with multimedia content, download in pdf and printed version in the main events that are covered by its protagonists.
The main theme of this edition is the re-evaluation of the term geo-engineering, as that spectrum that includes the value chain, from the capture of the data, to the start-up of the business model that was initially conceptualized.
On its central page there is an infographic that reflects the evolution of the terms GIS, CAD, BIM that in their historical contribution have not only matured the standardization trends in information management but have represented a common thread that is leading to re-design of the processes of the so-called «earth sciences», less and less exclusive. The spectrum in the infographic extends to that fusion of BIM + PLM in the framework of the fourth industrial revolution for now championed by acronyms such as Digital Twins, SmartCities with a horizon that instead of seeming far away will surely come without our realizing it as well It has happened in Uber-Airbnb-style industries.
Another of the main articles includes the trends in the Land Administration, among which the 2014 Cadastre proposed, talking about achievements and challenges not yet covered in this field, whose models of natural reality should be merged with the models of the transformation caused by the human being. The trends that Cadastre 2034 aspires to are also presented in its approach to the end user with a more active role in updating and spatial data infrastructures in their link to rights, responsibilities and public order restrictions under a registry techniques approach. and not just spatial relationships.
Consequently, with these two main articles, five use cases are included; three focused on the modeling of the primary data and two on the result of adopting BIM to improve the processes of the industry.
- Plex.Earth where Lambros tells us about mixed CAD-GIS solutions from the need of Civil Engineers,
- e-Cassini, its founder, shows us how a repository of information from the topography is feasible as a truly single point Hub.
- The president of Chasmtech explains how digital terrain models derived from satellite images are acquiring accuracies quite close to those obtained directly.
Within the framework of this theme, the magazine includes news from leading companies in the industry; AutoDesk, Bentley Systems, Esri, Topcon, Trimble, Hexagon and Microsoft.
We invite you to enjoy these 60 pages of reading, while the next edition is brewing. For now, the magazine is offered in digital format, through the printing service and shipping on demand , physical format will be found in events where its protagonists participate.
