Based on coverage, the new image from GeoEye 1 of Kutztown University is getting far more play (69 hits in Google News today) than an analysis from the American Association for the Advancement of Science and Amnesty international that used change detection to determine the extent of destruction in South Ossetia (41 hits in Google News today).

Now, I know that’s not a scientific analysis, but I do hope we are moving toward being as excited about what we can do with the images as just having them available.

(SIRF) infringement. There are three other patents that also need to be reviewed.

Here’s the technical details. We are using the GeoRSS Simple location encoding standard. This means that within our RSS feed for an item with geolocation data you will find an element like this:

51.5225 -0.1085

which contains latitude and longitude data, separated by a space, to describe a single point on Earth.

Peterborough Today reports that those who submit planning applications with inaccurate or unlicensed data may be denied permits. The OS wants to insure that data is licensed and thus necessarily “up-to-date.”

The central message is that just as property professionals should ensure their software licences are valid and their construction tools are correctly calibrated, they should also make certain their map data is properly licensed. If they do, they will know their data is accurate and up-to-date.

OS offers this webpage on how to get such maps.
