Transforming Transportation: How BIM and GIS Shape Brisbane’s Cross River Rail Project
Discover how the fusion of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Geographic Information System (GIS) data has been instrumental in shaping the success of the Cross River Rail (CRR) project in South East Queensland, Australia. This groundbreaking project aims to address the pressing transportation needs of a burgeoning population by constructing Brisbane’s inaugural subway system. Read more here.
Mapping the Future: Visualizing Climate Change’s Impact on Coastal Communities
Explore the future of coastal communities in the northeastern U.S. and beyond with interactive maps that vividly depict the potential consequences of “unchecked pollution” until 2050 and worst-case scenarios, including extreme flooding due to climate change and rising sea levels. Take a closer look at the alarming projections in these interactive maps.
A geolocation software that redefines the Delivery Ecosystem
Imagine a world where your online orders arrive faster, without getting lost or delayed during the last mile of delivery. UK-based geospatial startup, Naurt, is turning this vision into a reality with its innovative software solution. By optimizing delivery routes, parking spots, and building entrances, Naurt aims to revolutionize the last-mile delivery industry. With a focus on precision location data and real-time tracking, their goal is to set a new industry standard through collaboration with various delivery companies. Read more here.
Alarming Satellite Data Reveals Accelerated Ice Loss in Antarctica’s Shelves
Satellite observations have recently unveiled the startling and rapid decline in ice density within Antarctica’s ice shelves over the past 25 years. This revelation, based on an analysis of over 100,000 radar images primarily sourced from the European Space Agency’s Copernicus Sentinel-1 and CryoSat satellite missions, serves as a stark testament to the profound impact of climate change in the polar region. This ice loss not only affects the Antarctic region but has global consequences, releasing trillions of tons of meltwater into the ocean, potentially influencing ocean circulation and global temperature regulation.

Ground-Penetrating Radar: The Stream DP by IDS GeoRadar
The field of sub-surface locating has undergone a remarkable transformation, driven by the remarkable capabilities of newer-generation Ground-Penetrating Radars (GPR). One standout example of this technological evolution is the Stream DP, a cutting-edge GPR unit developed by Italian firm IDS GeoRadar and made available in Australia through C.R. Kennedy. Find out more about the Stream DP’s innovative features, its remarkable compact design, and its ability to deliver precise 3D detection of underground utility networks, assets, and voids, shedding light on its crucial role in revolutionizing sub-surface locating here.
