Real time spatial mobile information in support of energy and resource operations

Real-Time Spatial Mobile Information in Support of Energy and Resource Operations

  • Doctor Tao, director of York’s Geospatial Information

  • and Communication Technology (GeoICT) Lab.

  • Dr.Tao’s team developed a unique mobile GIS software, GeoEye™, for mobile geospatial information management.

    • It can run on virtually any platform (PDAs, cellular phones, etc.)

    • Management can oversee operations over the Internet

    • Field workers can download maps and find marked locations, equipment or team members.

  • The technology has been licensed to a Calgary-based consulting firm.


Marine activity geomatics and risk analysis in the coastal zone

Marine Activity Geomatics and Risk Analysis in the Coastal Zone

Doctor Pelot, Department of Industrial Engineering, Dalhousie University

  • Completion of the most comprehensive database of Canadian marine activity ever attempted.

  • This research helped determine the location of the 8 new substations granted to the Canadian Coast Guard.

  • The result: Better located substations that can perform search and rescue operations more efficiently – and save more lives.


Spatial data for the retail industry

Spatial Data for the retail Industry

Dr. Ken Jones, Director of the Centre for the Study of Commercial Activity (CSCA) at Ryerson University

From monster malls to pop-up power centres, the retail industry – which employs 20% of Canada’s workforce – has seen constant changes over the past 15 years. Now GEOIDE research is helping retailers find true value.

Helped by early GEOIDE funding, the research has created a national database of the retail economy – a comprehensive listing of every retail outlet in the country was completed. The database is now updated on a monthly basis, with a particular focus on the 300 key retailers who control the economy.


Spatial information for informed decisions in medical diagnoses procedures and treatment

Spatial Information for Informed Decisions in Medical Diagnoses,Procedures, and Treatment

Doctor Janet Ronsky, Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Calgary

The same geomatics knowledge used by satellites to study land and water is helping a Calgary-based research team create a better understanding of what is going on in the human body.

Evaluation of implant migration by integrating small beads into the bone at the time of the replacement surgery

Measuring how the implant is moving in the bone by using X-rays, information about the implant shape and computer algorithms.

Development of userfriendly tools to train surgeons and analysts to move this procedure from a research to a clinical tool.

Strong inroads in simulating surgery on a computer screen to explore how to precisely position a hip implant.”

    • Image interpretation and understanding,

    • Data integration for application development,

    • Spatial referencing.

  • The second finding cycle will:

    • Innovatively contribute to geomatics applications in earth sciences (atmosphere, hydrology, oceanography);

    • Contribute to dynamic areas of research (hyperspectral imaging techniques, 3D modelling, topological analysis, data fusion for coastal mapping and salmon production);

    • Develop new decision-support tools for marine risk management with a focus towards policy development.
