Geospatial 2.0 Defined
Geospatial 2.0 is the modern practice of collecting, and processing large quantities of static and dynamic location-based data, and delivering instant, action-oriented insights to geo-aware decision-makers.
What is Geospatial 1.0?
Geospatial 1.0 is the traditional geospatial sector. It has a 40 year plus history. Some of its core characteristics include: Map-centric. Static 2D (point, line, polygon) data. Tech focused. Solutions-led. A public sector centred niche.
Geospatial 2.0 Why
Moves us away from what was (past) to what is (present) and what will be (future). 2.0 is business problem led, not solutions looking for problems.
Geospatial 2.0 How
Geospatial 2.0 is centred on automation. That is the aggregation of both static and dynamic location-based data, AI powered machine learning algorithms and appropriate system of engagement based on user needs.
What are Modern Customer Needs?
Customers are driven by business objectives such as operational efficiency, reducing risks, increasing safety, and performance. Geospatial 2.0 is focused on business outcomes, it dramatically improves the depths of insight and speed of decision-making.
