Just how critical is your infrastructure?
Geoconnexion
Public utility networks are "important," because they deliver essential services, but they only become "critical" when we consider what might happen if they were compromised. There are lessons to be learned from those who already have experience of testing and derisking critical networks, according to Tim Cruddas.

Reinforcing the GIS value proposition is more important now than ever
Sensors & Systems
Lessons from the largest GIS event of the year (the Esri International User Conference) are still sinking in, and some of the takeaways from the ubiquitous platform approach of Web GIS give pause for the geospatial vendor community as a whole.

Ideas to bolster power grid run up against the system's many owners
The New York Times
Bill Richardson often denigrated America's power transmission network as a "third-world grid" when he was President Bill Clinton's energy secretary, but the more current description of it is "balkanized," with 500 separate owners. Marc L. Spitzer, a former member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, said even that analogy was not harsh enough.

Plan would give soldiers a common geospatial view of the battlefield
Defense News
The Army wants to give troops and the brass a common geospatial view of the battlefield, but as with other proposed military improvements these days, the timing for completing the geospatial vision is an open question because of budget pressures. If the vision becomes reality, a general looking at his Command Post of the Future battlefield display could see the same terrain and features as an intelligence analyst seated at a Distributed Common Ground System-Army compute.

Lessons in location privacy and Twitter
GIS User
Would you post a tweet that read, "I'm going to be at XXX place on 4th Ave. in the corner table at 6:15 PM tonight?" ... I doubt you would; however, contests on Twitter are encouraging people to do exactly that! Privacy and social media seem to be on the minds of many; however, for the most part, nobody really seems to care or really be going to any effort to protect their privacy — perhaps to many it simply isn't a big concern.

Signal structures for satellite-based navigation: Past, present and future
Inside GNSS
Although satellite navigation signals and systems have been designed for more than 40 years, new signals and systems are still being developed. During that time, design concepts have been weighed, implemented or rejected, and improved. Some early concepts — postponed because of impracticality at the time — have been revisited and adopted.

Brobst: Big-data treasure depends on where you dig for it
ZDNet
Organizations will find great new value in combining non-transactional data sets with transactional analysis — but must build scalable big-data storage systems rather than assuming that fast but expensive system memory will keep up with exploding data volumes, Teradata chief technology officer Stephen Brobst has warned.

Are we there yet? Biggest-ever energy storage trial launches
Smart Grid News
Many (most?) electric power utilities just don't believe that energy storage is economically viable. Hence the long, long, long list of energy storage pilots and demos. Despite the hundreds of trials we've seen already, utilities never seem to be quite satisfied. Yes, it worked for that small pilot — but could it scale for my application? Perhaps this latest trial will answer the scale question once and for all, given that it's the largest ever in Europe.
