Part 2: Building GeoEngines - Turning Data into Power

1886 is regarded as the year of the birth of the modern automobile with the creation of the Benz Patent - ‘Motorwagen’, brainchild of German inventor Carl Benz. Motorised wagons soon replaced animal-drafted carriages, especially after more affordable models such as the Ford Model T was introduced in 1908. It is mind-boggling to realise that, in a little over a century, humanity has developed the technology that replaced horse-powered carriages with ultra-sophisticated cars responding to voice commands and driven by an on-board computer.

Review: HxGN LOCAL UK 2016

At the user conference like no other; HxGN LOCAL UK 2016 brought together over 100 technology experts, software users and data specialists in Stoke Rochford Hall near Grantham. Sterling Geo was delighted to lead the Hexagon family with Leica Geosystems, Hexagon Geospatial and Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure working with us to co-host the event.

Fuel for our GeoEngines

The combustion engine, designed over 120 years ago, relied on fuel. Engines designed to enhance production, allowed us to move goods, services and ultimately ourselves from A to B as fast and efficiently as possible.

A Simple Slope Shaded Map in Spatial Modeler

Although there are a huge number of sophisticated image processing tools within ERDAS IMAGINE, sometimes it’s the quick and easy processes that get the results you need. A case in point is where you want to quickly visualise slope in order to gauge cross country routing.


As a department we pride ourselves in the high quality and up-to-date nature of our geospatial teaching, with the ultimate aim of preparing students for a career in the geospatial industry upon completion of their studies. ERDAS IMAGINE is a key component of the teaching we deliver on the undergraduate geography degree programme and at postgraduate level on the MSc Geographical Information Systems.
