The Geography of Social Media

Happy New Year Sterling Geo newsletter readers! Hopefully, this article is light-hearted enough to ease you back into work. The popularity of social media use across the globe is no longer considered to be news. It is now embedded as part of our daily lives and ranges from browsing through a feed to catch up on the latest activity of your network to posting something specific as a method of reaching out to your friends and colleagues.

2017: The Planets Align

Twelve months ago, Phil Cooper referenced that if everything works and the team is right, then anything is possible. Whilst he was right in saying predictions are dangerous, his comments about Leicester City Football Club becoming the Premier League champions came true (and so did a number of others). 2016 proved an excellent year for Sterling Geo.

Out of the Comfort Zone

I was hugely privileged last month to be invited by the World Bank to attend the Ramani Huria conference in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. I went with only a modest level of knowledge around this project and an understanding that satellite imagery, remote sensing and UAV imagery was involved.

Integrations for Better Customer Experience

A previous article (FME + API = Service Integration Platform, written by Surrey Heath Borough Council) highlighted that FME has an incredibly powerful ability to integrate between various systems. As noted in their article, this can be accomplished using transformers such as the HTTPCaller to make requests to both REST and SOAP API’s to achieve data synchronicity between databases and data collection tools.

Part 3: Build Value from Geography

In my first two articles, I spent a short time delving into the creation of engines (GeoEngines) as well as what will be fuelling them and I will now make the bold assumption that we have the tools and technology to create powerful workflows that will move our vehicle (App) forward delivering business analytics. What this article considers is the design, the very style which provokes us to respond and engage with the App.
