With the combining increasingly of the Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS) technologies with the modern network communication technology, some unique advantages have been displaying in the monitoring, forewarning and disaster...
RS and GIS technologies were used in processing of professional meteorological data like MODIS remote sensing images, the doppler radar echoes and the Meteoroloical Information Collecting, Analyzing and Processing System (MICAPS). The system is based on WebGIS and is convenient for the use of the agro-meteorological professionals, who use biological data and monitor weather diseaster events like spring frost, heal and drought. For some model crops some object-oriented user interfaces were developed with functions of the database management, data querying, map displaying, graphics rendering, spatial analysis, the professional data processing, information extraction, figure and table output.

The application has been designed to bring FAO's work on forests and forestry and explain forests’ linkage to food security to a growing generation of iPhone and iPad users.
The 'FAO Forestry' app can be downloaded free from the Apple App store and provides users with news, videos, select publications, interactive maps showing world forest statistics, and a quiz, all navigable by a touch-screen wheel.
I have been using R (a free statistics and graphics software package) now for the past four years or so and I have seen it become an increasingly powerful method of both analysing and visualising spatial data.
Safe Software, the pioneering global leader in the spatial data transformation technology market, released its flagship product, FME 2012. This release of FME Desktop and FME Server introduces new tools for overcoming data challenges so that data can be used and shared precisely where, when and how it’s needed.
FME 2012 offers new capabilities in response to market needs that are unmatched by any other technology. Now supporting over 275 formats, FME 2012’s enhancements provide faster, simpler ways to transform data to use and share, and include:
New Formats: New support for 16 new formats including: compressed point cloud LAZ format and Oracle Spatial Point Cloud; AIXM 5.1, INSPIRE, OpenGIS® CityGML 1.1, and Top50NL XML formats; Microsoft® DirectX®, and PREGASIS® OpenFlight 3D formats; Google Fusion Tables, and many more.
Point Cloud / LiDAR Data: Ability to transform billions of points in one workflow, and enhanced abilities to extract the precise subset of a point cloud dataset that is needed.
XML Data: New and enhanced transformation capabilities make it even easier to read, write, and prepare XML data – both the geometries and the geospatial components – without requiring knowledge of scripting languages.
3D Data: Enhancements include making 3D clipping z-aware, making it easier to work with 3D local coordinate systems, and enhanced surface modeling, all in response to customer requests.
More than one year ago news about Pyton in GIS caused mixed reactions. GIS expertes used specific programs ArcInfo, ArcEdit etc. for their GIS analysis. With a great scripting language that not only can replicate those AML workflows of the past, but brought in new tools that can help get the work done faster. That would be Python. There is no reason why you shouldn’t close out your ArcGIS Toolbox window and start using ArcPy, they say at Spatially Adjusted.
