ISDE newsletter on the understanding of Digital Earth
View this email in your browser
We do hope you find this new quarterly newsletter of the ISDE a helpful and fast gateway to emerging information about the concept of digital earth, both through its links to information on conferences and news items and through the opinions expressed by contributors.
    Rapid access to information is, of course, essential in such a quickly developing field.  From just a few decades ago where the only real digital description we had of the earth was the imagery acquired by remote sensing platforms, we now stand at the threshold of a new era of enormous possibilities for describing and modelling the world around us, and its dynamics.  Our data now comes from a huge variety of sources and sensors, while the Internet of Things promises to provide the a powerful data distribution and interpretation framework, capable of supporting detailed descriptions, simulations and predictions about our natural and built environments.  We are also in an era of big earth data; this in itself will generate challenges for those seeking to maximise the knowledge that can be gleaned from the data recorded.
    It is to act as a touchstone for new developments such as these that we have positioned our newsletter.  We trust you find value in its role as a portal to those links and opinions that are important to your roles as digital earth professionals.

DE Transitions
DE Transitions  ( Jan-Mar, 2014 )
The article in the DE transitions depicts current and new emerging examples of Digital Earth technology, research and strategic policy. Selected online resources are being summarized from one perspective of Digital Earth. This quarterly article hopes to bring a greater understanding of Digital Earth progress and trends.

Observations on Earth are being focused by government agency’s research projects in 2014. Digital Earth has demanding requests to be more conscious to geo and spatial Earth data. It is an impressive Digital Earth to witness data captured from challenging observation, information analyzed by precise measurement and a powerful online platform built for map distribution.
