Speeding Up GIS with CUDA on GPU

GIS experts around the world have been monitoring the huge oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. GIS technology helps specialists interpret oil slicks in order to assist in response, planning and damage assessment. Incogna GIS of Ontario, Canada has developed an application called “GIS Image Analysis On-Demand,” which uses GPU-based image analysis techniques for computationally-intensive tasks such as surface classification. These techniques leverage CUDA to process three days worth of data in less than one hour. The core technology behind Incogna GIS is ICRE (Image Content Recognition Engine), a cloud-computing, GPU-based computer vision system.
