Data Sharing is Smart – Geo-related Trends in Engineering & Construction

There could be many keywords representing important trends in the capture and use of spatial data in the engineering & construction industry, but 3D, BIM, AR and UAV are definitely high on the list. As this article examines, uniting them all is one major cross-industry challenge: interoperability and data integration in support of much-needed higher workflow efficiency in the whole value chain. The engineering & construction sector has been slower than most to adopt new technologies. While innovation may have occurred on the enterprise level, overall productivity in the market has remained almost flat for 50 years. In fact, labour... (read more)

Applying Geospatial Technologies to Real Estate Decision Making in Nigeria

Countries such as Nigeria are beginning to embrace the potential of geospatial technology and information in order to develop their economies. This is particularly so in fields such as land administration and real estate development where relevant stakeholders are taking advantage of increasingly affordable software and ever-growing volumes of crowdsources and open data. Unlike developed countries, which were limited by the slow roll-out of heavy telecommunications infrastructure, these industries are being fast-tracked by more easily-deployable Wi-Fi networks to both urban and remote regions. Bolaji Afolabi explains how this is happening. In the real estate service industry, it is not a... (read more)
