Amid the flood of data we collect and contend with on a daily basis, geospatial data occupies a unique place. Thanks to the networks of GPS satellites and cell towers and the emerging Internet of Things, we’re able to track and correlate the location of people and objects in very precise ways that were not possible until recently. But putting this geospatial data to use is easier said than done. Here are five ways organizations can use geospatial data to fuel analytics in the real world
One of the leaders in geospatial data is Pitney Bowes, which maintains an extensive catalog of geospatial data, as well as geospatial encoding engines that run on their own or plug-into high-performance databases, such as SAP HANA. James Buckley, senior vice president and general manager of customer data and location intelligence in Pitney Bowes’ software division, recently discussed several use cases for geospatial intelligence with Datanami.
Given any location in the world (in lat/long format), Pitney Bowes can tell you exactly where that is in terms of a street address, and overlay that point with other useful data provided by partners. It’s been delivering that sort of geocoding capability for years, and counts some of the world’s biggest companies as customers. But with the flood of data coming from sensors and phones these days, the potential for geocoding is only getting bigger.
