Esri Joins ERES and K&A to Create Geospatial Real Estate Solution

By incorporating Esri’s capabilities for field collection, spatial analytics, and mapping into the ERES infrastructure and solutions, ERES can now provide real-time data like valuable locations, sales assessments, and rent indexes. This allows investors and regulators to establish equitable valuation and property taxation through embedded dashboards and maps that provide an instant view of the real estate development market from any device, anywhere, and anytime.

L3Harris 3D Printed Space Experiment Flies on the International Space Station

In February 2021, an L3Harris-designed Radio Frequency (RF) circuit and an array of various 3D printed material samples launched into space, bound for the International Space Station (ISS).

As part of an experiment to assess the viability of 3D printed materials for RF applications, the circuit will reside outside the Space Station, exposed to the extreme environment of space. The experiment will test the durability of 3D printed radio frequency circuits in space for potential use in future small satellites.

Cesium, bringing the real world to Unreal Engine

The Cesium for Unreal plugin unlocks the 3D geospatial ecosystem in Unreal Engine. By combining a high-accuracy full-scale WGS84 globe, open APIs and open standards for spatial indexing like 3D Tiles, and cloud-based real-world 3D content with the power of Unreal Engine, you are empowered to create a new era of geospatial applications utilizing real world content using game engines.

Unity and HERE Collaborate On Real-Time 3D In-Vehicle Experiences

Unity (NYSE: U), the world’s leading platform for creating and operating real-time 3D (RT3D) content, today announced a collaborative agreement with HERE Technologies, the leading location data and technology platform, to partner on developing next-generation embedded automotive HMIs with state-of-the-art, RT3D rendering capabilities. The collaboration will also extend to work on next-generation location technology for autonomous driving, simulations, city planning and digital twins.
