Organizations can gain powerful, actionable insights by combining maps, geographical data, and relevant “big data” sources such as customer behavior or sensor data. Leading firms in a variety of industries—including retail, real estate, energy, telecommunications, land management, and law enforcement—are today engaged in projects involving geospatial analytics, and broader interest is growing. TDWI Research, in a recent survey on emerging technologies, found that the number of respondents who stated that they would be using geospatial analytics will double over the next three years.
Newer technology solutions in data visualization, advanced analytics, database systems, and more are joining with traditional geographical information systems to give organizations many choices for realizing their objectives with geospatial analytics. In this Webinar, TDWI Research directors Fern Halper and David Stodder will discuss geospatial analytics, key trends, and what organizations need to know when planning to utilize geospatial data and combine maps with a variety of big data sources.
You will learn:
- Critical elements that define geospatial analytics
- Why big data plus geospatial analytics can be valuable for business decisions
- Strategies for integrating big data and geospatial analytics
- Use cases for geospatial analytics and big data
- Best practices for getting started
