Geospatial Technologies Used in Land Administration Kevin Daugherty Land Administration Solutions Manager Geospatial World Forum Rotterdam, Netherlands – May 2013
As the supply decreases, the price increases! 29% of the Earth is land mass –40% of that is wilderness –29% is desert or desert-like –9% is Antarctica –22% is agriculture –~1% is inhabited by humans 8 Billion people by 2020 40% of the Earth’s population lives within 100 kilometers of the coastline
Options in Accuracy and Cost Features range from the utilization of a Smartphone OS and form factor; to handhelds with GNSS integration; to rugged, sunlight displays with advanced PC processors and Windows OS.
Ground-based LiDAR Systems Laser Technology –Phase shift –976,000 points per second Range – Up to 120m Accuracy –1-2mm standard deviation Integrated color camera –Photorealistic 3D color scans –70mp parallax free color overlay
The “Connected Farm” will transform agriculture by leveraging information everywhere in the process Annual Economic Benefits of Precision Agriculture to U.S. Crop Farming Pham et. al. 2011, The Economic Benefits of Commercial GPS Use Farm planning, mapping & management Tractor & implement, guidance & control Variable rate applications of seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides Yield mapping Increased yields Reduced input costs: Fuel, fertilizers, pesticides Reduced environmental impact Record Keeping MappingAnalysisMonitoringTopographicProductivityAccounting
Positioning and Geospatial Technology Monetized! Positioning and Geospatial technologies are expanding in capabilities and performance There are many options today for positioning, field data collection, and data processing The technology is improving accuracy and efficiency in our work places The positioning and sensor hardware is more integrated with software that collects, processes, models, analyzes the data; making the data useful and intelligent; and valuable!
