National Symposium on Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics in Infrastructure Development and Management

            With the focus of the nation shifting towards infrastructure development, through national programs like JNRUM, IRDP, and the participation of private players in infrastructure development, it is projected that annual investments to the tune of Rs. 1,000 Billion will be made in the country across the next 5-7 years. The efficacy of Geoinformatics and Remote Sensing in Infrastructure planning, development and management is well recognized and promoted by the Department of Space and other governmental agencies. In this context, the National Symposium and ISRS Annual Convention is organized on the topic "GIS AND REMOTE SENSING IN INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT" from the 29th of November, 2010 to 4th December, 2010.

           The Symposium will expose the frontline developments in remote sensing and Geoinformatics to the infrastructural developers, enabling the latter to appreciate the cost-saving and accuracy enabled by the technology. It is expected that the Symposium will provide a forum for a direct interaction between the space scientists and Geoinformatics technologists on one side and infrastructure managers and administrators on the other.

           The Indian Society of Remote Sensing, Pune Chapter is hosting the ISRS Annual Convention for the second time after 1996.The Symposium venue is located at the hill station of Lonavala, known as the "Jewel of the Sahyadris" is famed for the scenic landscape, milky waterfalls, lush greenery and pleasant cool winds on the slopes of Sahyadri mountains, straddling the Mumbai-Pune highway; about 50km west of Pune. Various educational institutions, research and scientific organizations from government as well as private sector, namely, Sinhgad Educational Institutes, University of Pune - STP, C-DAC, CWPRS, NWA, Symbiosis institute of Geomatics and Kalyani group of companies are combinedly hosting the program.

           The theme of this symposium is the role of Geoinformatics and Remote sensing in Infrastructure development. The role of Geospatial technology in disaster management, natural resource management, environment and forest, archeology, etc. will also be discussed!

            For more details about the symposium please visit the ISRS Pune Chapter's website. It is really such a great thing that Pune is hosting such a huge Geoinformatics event!

Where does Google get it's live traffic data from?

Referring to a post that I wrote earlier, Google’s - Live traffic Layer, ever wondered how Google collected this data? I was wondering the other day, how Google received live data to display it on their maps as a layer! I looked up the web and found something very interesting and am sharing the same with you all.As we all know, the traffic layer is available most accurately in several states in USA. Most major metro areas in the US have sensors embedded in their highways. These sensors track real time traffic data. Easy to miss at high speeds (hopefully anyway, traffic permitting), more commonly noticed may be the similar sensors that often exist at many busy intersections that help the traffic lights most efficiently let the most amount of people through. The information from these tracking sensors is reported back to the Department of Transportation (DOT). The DOT uses this data to update some of the digital signs that report traffic conditions in many metro areas. They also…

Two maps on the same page - Side-by-side

How good I am feeling to post a code example after such a long time! It's been all "news" over the past so many posts! Well now that I am finally doing a code example, I am posting a very highly requested code sample. Placing two Google Maps on the same page (Now that's simple you would say!), but side by side. Now this is the thing that most people struggle with. Well, implementing the second part is also very simple, as you will see in today's code.

    Let's see the code. Here it is!



    The output of the above code will be as seen in the result section above.

    As most of you will realize, there are two maps, one centered at "Pune" and other at "Noida". Why I chose these two locations? Well, just like that!...The main issue of concern is how the maps appeared side-by-side and not one below the other as would be normal behavior of two "div" elements used in the same page. Now here is the trick! Check out the the first
