Geospatial-Next: Geospatial Crossing the Chasm
A discussion on the rapidly advancing world of geospatial
The promise of Geospatial-Next is to improve the speed and accuracy of decision-making leveraging new geospatial data and AI-powered analytics. It is a two piece conversation: Part business, part data & technology.
Geospatial-Next is focused on an inflexion point: GIS and geospatial moving from the periphery to the core. From expert users only; to all.
Geospatial Crossing the Chasm: The journey has just begun.
All business is at its core focused on people, places and things. That means location is a fundamental component. Geospatial-Next brings new ways for business to utilize location based data and technology to improve business outcomes.
New Data & Technology
Thanks to developments in sensor technology we are now collecting a tsunami of new data. Most of this is location based data. Advances in analytics; notably AI and ML, means we can now process and analyse this data automatically. That offers an incredible array of new possibilities.
Location data does not live in a vacuum. Its real power comes from linking it to non-spatial data. In other words geoenablement. That might be simple linkages with documents, video or other media. Or more complex integrations with business systems such as SAP, Salesforce, Maximo etc. The most successful businesses of tomorow will be geoenabled.
