Forest fire risk assessment using hotspot analysis in GIS

US: The recent forest fire incidents are becoming a major concern as they seriously threaten the environment, economy and human’s safety. This research study aims to figure out forest fire hotspots using advanced hotspot analysis in GIS. Further, it can help propose appropriate preventive measures using Site Suitability and Network Analyses in GIS. The study focuses on Brunei Darussalam because it is increasingly struck by forest fire incidents among all regions in Southeast Asia…(Read more)

YellowScan introduces long-range UAV LiDAR solution

France: YellowScan has rolled out the Surveyor Ultra, a LiDAR system suited for long-range unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). As per YellowScan, the new turnkey LiDAR system integrates the VLP-32C scanner and the Applanix APX-15 IMU. Due to its high density (600,000 shots per second), the system is ideally suited for high-speed and long-range drones. Its lightweight of 1.7 kg (approximately 3.75 lbs.) makes it easy to mount on any drone, including vertical takeoff and land (VTOL) aircraft…(Read more)


Concept3D brings geospatial technology and VR in space planning with this interactive 3D map

Generations after generations, maps have played an important role in contextualizing data, specifically for locating demographic data such as population, race, income and education. They help us study an area’s demographic information and allow us to understand and analyze their relationship with each other. A fine example of this understanding is the interactive map of Colorado Convention Center created by Concept3D. Useful to visitors, guests, exhibitors and vendors…(Read more)
