    With Huawei basically blocked from using Google services and infrastructure, the firm has taken steps to replace Google Maps on its hardware by signing a partnership with TomTom to provide maps, navigation, and traffic data to Huawei apps. Reuters reports that Huawei is entering this partnership with TomTom as the mapping tech company is based in the Netherlands — therefore side-stepping the bans on working with US firms. TomTom will provide the Chinese smartphone manufacturer with mapping, live traffic data, and software on smartphones and tablets. TomTom spokesman Remco Meerstra confirmed to Reuters that the deal had been closed some time ago but had not been made public by the company. This comes as TomTom unveiled plans to move away from making navigation hardware and will focus more heavily on offering software services — making this a substantial step for TomTom and Huawei. While TomTom doesn’t quite match the global coverage and update speed of Google Maps, having a vital portion of it filled by a dedicated navigation and mapping firm is one step that might appease potential global Huawei smartphone buyers. There is no denying the importance of Google app access outside of China but solid replacements could potentially make a huge difference — even more so if they are recognizable by Western audiences. It’s unclear when we may see TomTom pre-installed on Huawei devices but we are sure that this could be easily added by way of an OTA software update. The bigger question remains if people are prepared to switch from Google Maps to TomTom for daily navigation. resource: https://9to5google.com/2020/01/20/huawei-tomtom/

    Interesting video on How Tos: WebOpenDroneMap is a friendly Graphical User Interfase (GUI) of OpenDroneMap. It enhances the capabilities of OpenDroneMap by providing a easy tool for processing drone imagery with bottoms, process status bars, and a new way to store images. WebODM allows to work by projects, so the user can create different projects and process the related images. As a whole, WebODM in Windows is a implementation of PostgresSQL, Node, Django and OpenDroneMap and Docker. The software instalation requires 6gb of disk space plus Docker. It seem huge but it is the only way to process drone imagery in Windows using just open source software. We definitely see a huge potential of WebODM for the image processing, therefore we have done this tutorial for the installation and we will post more tutorial for the application of WebODM with drone images. For this tutorial you need Docker Toolbox installed on your computer. You can follow this tutorial to get Docker on your pc: https://www.hatarilabs.com/ih-en/tutorial-installing-docker You can visit the WebODM site on GitHub: https://github.com/OpenDroneMap/WebODM Videos The tutorial was split in three short videos. Part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsMSoWAToxE Part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GKx3fz0qgE Part 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCZFzaXyMmA

    Saw a similar news last month - Using Machine Learning to “Nowcast” Precipitation in High Resolution by Google. The result seemed pretty good. Here, A visualization of predictions made over the course of roughly one day. Left: The 1-hour HRRR prediction made at the top of each hour, the limit to how often HRRR provides predictions. Center: The ground truth, i.e., what we are trying to predict. Right: The predictions made by our model. Our predictions are every 2 minutes (displayed here every 15 minutes) at roughly 10 times the spatial resolution made by HRRR. Notice that we capture the general motion and general shape of the storm. The two method seem similar.

    Google announced Dataset Search, a service that lets you search for close to 25 million different publicly available data sets, is now out of beta. Dataset Search first launched in September 2018. Researchers can use these data sets, which range from pretty small ones that tell you how many cats there were in the Netherlands from 2010 to 2018 to large annotated audio and image sets, to check their hypotheses or train and test their machine learning models. The tool currently indexes about 6 million tables. With this release, Dataset Search is getting a mobile version and Google is adding a few new features to Dataset Search. The first of these is a new filter that lets you choose which type of data set you want to see (tables, images, text, etc.), which makes it easier to find the right data you’re looking for. In addition, the company has added more information about the data sets and the organizations that publish them. Searched 'remote sensing' and found this Geographic information A lot of the data in the search index comes from government agencies. In total, Google says, there are about 2 million U.S. government data sets in the index right now. But you’ll also regularly find Google’s own Kaggle show up, as well as a number of other public and private organizations that make public data available, as well. As Google notes, anybody who owns an interesting data set can make it available to be indexed by using a standard schema.org markup to describe the data in more detail. Source

    I have a project with autocad files fire up my Workstation Laptop (Dell Precission 5510) and load CAD data. Holly cr*p, this software run like a snail, 🤣 try to disable Hardware acceleration, yeah much better experience, but still laggy as old Arcgis Pro beta 😂 searching around and found this article: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/autocad/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Optimize-Performance-within-Windows-7-Environments.html?_ga=2.205082898.303799305.1579712200-1066991414.1579712200 didnt have time to try all the suggestion yet, but, hey all GISArea members, do you use Autocad? how to improve your CAD Experience? share with me, 😉

    update: this how i do till i post this update 1. disable hardware acceleration 2. Turn off all compatibility settings except for Run This Program As Administrator (point 4 on above article) 3. Stop the Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache (point 5 on above article). I saw little increase on performance, the workspace almost playable now, but i still find the lag when scroll it.
