Inpixon, a leading indoor data company that specializes in delivering indoor intelligence, has released its latest mapping platform, Jibestream 4.12. The update delivers a number of new and enhanced features to streamline the creation, management and delivery of indoor maps. The release also includes support for point labels and new capabilities for integrating outdoor and indoor maps into a single application.

Optional integration with smart parking systems can guide users to open parking spaces or to their parked vehicle.
Rezatec, a leading provider of geospatial data analytics, has launched a free smartphone app which acts as a portal for farmers to record their agricultural activities and provides recommendations for optimal sowing and irrigation scheduling. Based on preliminary results from the experimental stations, the app has demonstrated the potential to increase wheat yields by up to 12%.
COMPASS v2.0 provides decisions based on Earth observation satellite data, insitu field data captured by farmers, and a sophisticated crop model, to identify factors that might cause lower crop performance. In the Yaqui Valley in Mexico, a region that relies on irrigation due to varying climatic conditions, water security is a serious challenge. With general circulation models predicting less water availability in the future, farmers must be very precise in their irrigation management. The technology will track crop growth performance allowing farmers to make more informed decisions about crop management. www.rezatec.com

Tesla is starting to add third-party charging stations to its in-car navigation on top of its own Superchargers and Destination chargers.
While there are several other growing third-party charging networks, most Tesla owners never have to use them as Tesla’s own networks cover a large part of almost all the markets where it sells its vehicles. These chargers are all listed in Tesla’s incar navigation system, which is going to route you directly to a Supercharger station if your final destination cannot be reached based on your current stateof- charge. Now Tesla is starting to add third-party stations to its maps and navigation, which should help owners make use of the station https://electrek.co
