As much fun as I've been having with MapCruncher, I think I saw something similar. . . But way better today.
The serivices are from a company called Geosemble, and they're into get this:
- Vector to Image conflation
- Map to Image conflation
- Image to Image conflation
- Vector to Vector conflation
And did I mention that it's automatic?
- Integration of online data
Some pretty wicked awesome math to do this. But it looks great, and looks useful. Looks like it could cut a lot of costs for some companies who spend lots of time manually aligning parcel data to imagery.
Again, it's a service, not a tool. . . yet. I'm looking forward to talking with the Geosemble team a little more about what they plan on doing and how they can help map the FANTOM PLANET.
On a side note, Geosemble is made up of researchers from the University of Southern California's Information Science Institute.
The same place a few MapCruncher team members came from. Actually, I thought one of the MapCruncher developers was from there, but after checking, no.
I need to stop reading so many stinkin' webpages, they're getting mangled together in my head.
