Summary:

Executive Editor Adena Schtuzberg picked out the top All Points Blog posts from the last three months. If you missed them the first time around - here's an opportunity to catch up!

1. ArcGIS Online Credit Estimator Now Online

As I noted last month, Esri expected to launch a tool to better estimate credti use in ArcGIS Online in September. The ArcGIS Online Credit Estimator launched today.

2. Google’s New Augmented Reality/LBS Game: Ingress

Yes, I know, Ingres is a database once...but with two "s"s it's a game (one you need an invitation to, apparently). It's a game I don't really understand, but also a game for which I don't believe I'm the target market.

3. Help FEMA Categorize Sandy Images: Crowdsourced Damage Assessment

FEMA had the Civil Air Patrol, take aerial imagery in New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts on Oct 31 2012. It is looking for help from volunteers to categorize images from Hurricane Sandy. 

4. US Government: Citizens Have No Expectation of Privacy with Cell Phone Location Data

 

The Obama administration told a federal court Tuesday that the public has no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in cellphone location data, and hence the authorities may obtain documents detailing a person’s movements from wireless carriers without a probable-cause warrant.

 

Over the last two years, DigitalGlobe set out to expand the company’s ability to download imagery quicker and cover more of the earth’s surface within a shorter window of time. The result is a much shorter period of time between data collection to product delivery. I sat down with Jeff Culwell, DigitalGlobe's director of Satellite Control Systems, at his office in Longmont, Colorado, for a better understanding of how the improvements were accomplished.
