Share Your Geospatial Expertise with the World

0

The geographic area of the world is not increasing, but the amount of geospatial data and depth of geospatial knowledge is growing exponentially. It is impossible for any one person or organization to know everything there is to know about the ever-expanding geospatial discipline.

We believe that the knowledge of the geospatial discipline should be made available to all, and curated by the geospatial community. To facilitate this, Hexagon Geospatial is proud to launch the HexGeoWiki — an open, collaborative resource for the entire geospatial community. It is designed to be a reference for advanced research as well as a site that helps new users learn the concepts and theories that drive geospatial analysis, photogrammetry, and image processing.

HexGeoWiki: The ERDAS Field Guide Reborn

You may notice that the HexGeoWiki includes a lot of content from the ERDAS Field Guide, a Hexagon Geospatial book which has been used as the definitive reference textbook in college classrooms since it was first published in 1990. However, the vision for HexGeoWiki goes far beyond just the ERDAS Field Guide; it should become a go-to site for technical information and concepts spanning the geospatial disciplines.

Your input in this endeavor is critical: we need your expertise to ensure that this resource is as complete and accurate as possible. As an organization, Hexagon Geospatial is partner-focused, working alongside our business channel to successfully deliver sophisticated solutions to customers. We invite YOU to partner with us on HexGeoWiki, regardless of whether or not you are a Hexagon Geospatial product user. If you have geospatial, photogrammetric, or image processing information to share, we invite you to create an account and begin editing or creating pages.

The content of HexGeoWiki is owned by the geospatial community at large.

Share.
