Indiana University will celebrate GIS Day on Wednesday, November 17 with a host of informational booths and activities showcasing the work that IU, local businesses, and government agencies are doing with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). All sessions will take place in the Herman B Wells Library on the IU Bloomington campus.

This year marks the 12th anniversary of GIS Day, the worldwide, annual event celebrating GIS technology and its applications. GIS supports a geographic approach to problem solving, connecting people with the geo-intelligence needed to work more efficiently and to make better decisions. From Google Maps technology to systems that monitor the spread of disease, GIS technologies help people innovate, take action, and make a measureable difference.

The event will largely focus on the GIS job market, training and certification, and the many ways that GIS technologies are shaping the way we live, learn, and do business. GIS professionals will showcase topics including environmental, library science, and mapping applications. Representatives from the Indiana Geological Survey and the Indiana Geographic Information Council will demonstrate IndianaMap, a public source for map data in Indiana, and provide information about new local projects and emerging technologies.

While government agencies are already making wide use of geographic information systems, the Obama administration’s Open Government Directive provides an opportunity to do even more with GIS, according to market pioneer Jack Dangermond. At the Gov 2.0 Summit in Washington, D.C., next week, Dangermond will outline new initiatives aimed at helping agencies use GIS to make information more transparent and easier to grasp.

Dangermond, president and founder of GIS software provider ESRI, will speak in a session titled “Open Data and the Future of Mapping and Location-Based Services.” Gov 2.0 Summit runs Sept. 7 and 8 at the Grand Hyatt Washington. The event is co-produced by O’Reilly Conferences and UBM TechWeb.

GIS systems use geographic information to generate maps that can be used in a variety of ways. Governments around the world use GIS for a range of tasks, such as managing land use, responding to disasters, and making decisions about where to place landmarks and highways, Dangermond said. As the U.S. government aims to be more transparent through open government initiatives, GIS can play an even more pivotal role, Dangermond said in an interview previewing his Gov 2.0 Summit presentation.

Since 1963, URISA members and friends have convened annually to learn about, share and discuss all things geospatial. The name of URISA’s annual conference has recently been updated to better reflect that focus. URISA is pleased to present GIS-Pro 2010: URISA’s 48th Annual Conference for GIS Professionals. The first conference under the new banner will take place September 28-October 1, 2010 in Orlando, Floridaand the deadline to take advantage of discounted registration fees is July 19.

Along with the new conference name, GIS-Pro will reflect what GIS Professionals are looking for in a modern conference. Gone are restrictive conference tracks – the GIS-Pro 2010 program was organized according to these themes, designed to move the conversation forward and interactively share information among conference participants:

* Value of GIS – The value of GIS can theoretically be quantified in terms of Return on Investment (ROI), but the methodology for determining ROI for GIS has not been standardized. Sessions in this theme include information on measured return on investment (as opposed to estimated cost/benefit analysis performed prior to implementation); various methods for funding and justifying funding for GIS implementation; and ways to articulate the financial/liability, economic, social or environmental impact of GIS for a jurisdiction, region or organization.
* One Government – (more…)

It has been rumoured that AOL is going to sell some of its peripheral properties. As part of this effort, it is planning to sell different units including ICQ instant-messaging unit and MapQuest online map service.

According to the owner Time Warner, this step has been taken to offload some assets and become a more focused company.

It is expected that, some of the mapping giants like Microsoft may be an ideal candidate to own that service. It is obvious because of the same service it has currently.

AOL bought the MapQuest online map service in 1999.

Earlier, Time Warner had indicated that it would spin off its AOL service to make a separate entity. So it is evident that the company is going for a transformation this time.

SuperGIS Mobile Engine is the core of Irrigation Mobile Survey System. With the various GIS components and the highly flexible development structures provided by SuperGIS Mobile Engine, developers can customize numerous buttons on toolbars, forms, etc., to meet users’ needs and to simplify the developing procedures. Moreover, since the association provides mobile devices for surveyors, each mobile device installing the system facilitates surveyors to do outdoor survey. SuperGIS Mobile Engine not only assists developers to establish the system effectively and flexibly, but also reduces the cost of development and extensive deploying the systems to mobile devices.

The friendly interface of Irrigation Mobile Survey System enables surveyors to complete the following tasks:
1. GIS basic manipulations, such as zoom in/out, panning, adding layers, etc.
2. Orientation Query, such as intersections, landmarks, cadastral, channels, etc.
3. Statistics analysis allows developers to measure irrigation area, cadastral area, channel length, and so on.
4. Data management assists users to query and maintain the data, such as irrigation facilities, works data, financial data, and also enables users to print statement and location map.
5. Camera function. With the activated GPS in PDA, as the user is taking pictures, the system can record the user’s coordinates and add a point feature on the map to create a corresponding image layer. Therefore, users can display the picture by hyperlink.
