What is a geospatial cloud?
Cloud platforms and geographic information systems (GIS) software together give businesses the ability to analyze massive amounts of information. The resultant location intelligence often reveals deeper insights and innovative ways to increase efficiency. A geospatial cloud empowers you to analyze complex datasets on easy-to-understand smart maps, which can then be used by anyone in your organization to visualize and monitor important trends across lines of business and take action in mission-focused projects. A geospatial cloud also allows location intelligence data to be easily combined with artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to map out ways to drive productivity or adjust strategies before bigger problems develop.
With a geospatial cloud, you can create maps that represent thousands of relationships between hundreds of layers of data on demographics, sales, population growth, likely customers, competitors, supply chains, delivery routes, and countless other variables.
The concept of a geospatial cloud introduces a whole new scale of location intelligence, and organizations of every size are using it to break new ground and digitally transform.
