Imagery collaboratives deliver big data at big savings to small groups
Directions Magazine
Let's face it: collecting and managing high resolution geospatial imagery is expensive and difficult. There are good reasons why only the largest, most monolithic organizations collect their own imagery. Smaller organizations have many of the same requirements as larger entities, but they often lack the budget necessary to implement solutions. Lower cost drone-acquired data is starting to lift the burden somewhat, but logistical and regulatory issues impede progress.

Making big data work
FCW
Behind the "big data" cliché is an explosion in the volume of information collected by sensors, cameras, social media, e-commerce, science experiments, weather satellites, logistics and a host of other sources. But to extract valuable insights from the terabytes and petabytes of information, analysts have to know how to use datasets in their systems, and compare data from different sources.

Solar power is booming in the United States. "Every three weeks," President Obama said in his 2015 State of the Union address, "we bring online as much solar power as we did in all of 2008." Geospatial technologies — especially remote sensing and surveying — play an important role in siting, designing and constructing solar arrays, from a few panels on the roof of a house to hundreds of thousands of panels in huge solar farms.
