Cloud

Continuous advancement in web connectivity and cloud computing technology has allowed immense wealth of geospatial data to be accessible and shared easily over the Internet. Today, there’re companies providing platforms for users not only to browse geospatial data, but to perform analysis and mapping on the fly as well. With Cloud technology, geospatial data gains far greater reach, which enhance its value and foster more collaborations among communities.

Digital Cadaster

Cadastral or property boundaries data is one of the most important datasets of a country. Keeping it accurate, modern and easily accessible will deliver cost and time savings in property development and real estate, and provide better information for utilities and asset management. Having a digital cadastral database also enables property boundary information to be more easily used in the broader spatial domain.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Businesses are using a variety of IoT sensors and devices to monitor assets – be it an infrastructure, an entire building, a shipment or even workforces. These sensors provide unique location and time information along with other real-time data about the assets monitored. Data collected from the IoT sensors can be used to track bottlenecks or inefficiencies in workflows and optimize decision-making.
