1996 yılında GPS teknolojisini kullanarak araç izleme altyapısı için fizibilite çalışmalarına başlayan İETT (İstanbul Elektrikli Tramvay ve Tünel İşletmeleri), Belbim ile işbirliğine giderek Akıllı Bilet (Akbil) Projesi’ni hayata geçirmişti.

2002 yılında da, Coğrafi Bilgi Sistemi (CBS) tabanlı yolculuk bilgileri sağlamaya yönelik Yolbil Projesi’ni geliştiren kurum, projenin fizibilite çalışmaları ardından ilk olarak bilgi teknolojileri altyapısını yeniledi. Gelinen noktada Akbil ve Yolbil projelerini aynı çatı altında birleştirme kararı alan İETT, AkYolBil Projesi’ni hayata geçirerek gerçek zamanlı yol ve seyahat bilgileri elde etmeyi ve bu bilgileri yolcularla paylaşmayı hedefliyor.

The Marriage of GIS and Land Surveying August 30, 2008

Too often the GIS professional and the surveyor are at odds; a hoity-toity GIS guy looks askance at a muddy-booted surveyor who wants to pin him down on accuracy and boundary issues, and the surveyor gets exasperated with the GIS guy who’s defining more parcels in an afternoon than he’ll work on in a month, but who can’t be bothered to think about metadata concerning monumentation or record survey information. Perhaps some surveyors have the sinking feeling that they missed the boat when it comes to GIS, that a new technology catering to measurement and boundary experts should really have added more to the bottom line of land surveyors than seems to be the case.

But things are changing. As GIS matures, survey grade accuracy is becoming more important and the value of a reliable boundary layer is increasingly obvious. This creates opportunities for land surveying firms, and Flatirons, Inc. of Boulder, Colorado is a good example of a company taking advantage. Flatirons (named for the Flatirons, an iconic mountain range above the city of Boulder) does “Surveying, Engineering & Geomatics” (and yes, they do list surveying before engineering). (more…)

Though increasing of the population, potential of the potable/usable water supply in the world
is decreasing due to water pollution and climatic changes. For that reason, determination of superficial water sources as well as systematically measurement of groundwater sources to determine the available static water level then to pursue its pollution ratio and utility, are very important activities to be followed up. For this aim, in this study, data about general geological and meteorological characteristics of Diyarbakir basin and also its natural resources – including water resources – are submitted to provide general information. Map of static water level of groundwater in Diyarbakir basin, map of dynamic water level, maps for efficiency of submersible pumps are prepared using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and groundwater database of region was obtained. So, updating these maps, they can be used as base in the future works.

Dünyada artan nüfusa karşılılık, su kirliliği ve iklim değişikliği nedeniyle içilebilir ve kullanılabilir su azalmaktadır. Bu nedenle yüzeysel su kaynaklarının tespiti kadar, yer altı su potansiyelinin, statik su seviyelerinin düzenli olarak ölçülüp tespit edilmesi, tespit edilen bu suyun kalitesi ve kullanılabilirliği de takip edilmesi gereken önemli işlerdendir. Bu amaçla bu çalışmada Diyarbakır Ovasının havza bazında genel jeolojik, meteorolojik verileri, doğal kaynakları ve doğal su kaynakları ile ilgili genel bilgiler verilmiş ve haritaların oluşumuna temel oluşturan su kuyusu sondaj verileri yardımıyla tematik haritalar oluşturulmuştur. Diyarbakır havzasının yeraltı su statik su seviye haritası, dinamik su seviye haritası, pompa verimlilik haritaları Coğrafik Bilgi Sistemleri (CBS ) yardımı ile çıkarılmış ve bölgenin yeraltı su veritabanı oluşturulmuştur. Böylece bu haritalar güncelleştirilerek ileride yapılacak çalışmalara bir dayanak oluşturulabilir.

In an era of spiraling fuel prices and pinched wallets, a GPS vehicle tracking device can help companies and fleet-owners squeeze every drop of value from their liquid gold. Fort Collins, CO — In an era of spiraling fuel prices and pinched wallets, a GPS vehicle tracking device can help companies and fleet-owners squeeze every drop of value from their liquid gold.

“A number of fuel-saving measures involve using a vehicle efficiently and wisely,” says Brad Borst of Rocky Mountain Tracking, Inc. “With a gps tracking device, companies can ensure and enforce efficiency and wisdom of use with their vehicles.” Borst suggests five ways to reduce fuel consumption.
