Digital mapping

Digital mapping is the process by which a collection of data is compiled and formatted into a virtual image. The primary function of this technology is to produce maps that give accurate representations of a particular area, detailing major road arteries and other points of interest. The technology also allows the calculation of distances from one place to another. Although digital mapping can be found in a variety of computer applications the main use of these maps is with the Global Positioning System, or GPS satellite network, used in standard automotive navigation systems.

Founded in 1998, FERI’s initial client was the Department of Defense Office of Naval Research. It was ONRs funding that allowed for the development of the tools to rapidly assess the coastal ocean environment utilizing cutting edge environmental mapping and monitoring techniques, specifically hyperspectral remote sensing. Currently, FERI is responsible for a wide range of tasks spanning from the construction and aerial deployment of several digital sensor sy ...


A geofence is a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area. A geo-fence could be dynamically generated - as in a radius around a point location, or a geo-fence can be a predefined set of boundaries. The use of a geofence is called geofencing, and one example of usage involves a location-aware device of a location-based service LBS user entering or exiting a geo-fence. This activity could trigger an alert to the devices user as well as messaging to the geo-fence operator. This info, which could contain the location of the device, could be sent to a mobile telephone or an email account.
