GLOBAL WATCH

For any technology to flourish, users provide the substance of growth. Geospatial information cuts across sectors and domains as well as across the geographies, providing a 360-degree perspective to both human as well as natural dimensions that are the torch bearers of development, sustainability and prosperity. This section provides a sneak peek into the user experiences and the transformations geospatial implementation has brought about across the globe.

Environment and Climate Resilience

As the Earth Systems are reeling under the pressure of increasing climatic variability, environmental pollution, massive land cover transformations, earth observation and associated geospatial information capture on an ongoing basis is a necessity now. With the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) guiding us to build a harmonious environment. Geospatial information transcends beyond the current, as it builds linkages among the ecological, economic and social processes that are fundamental to implementation of SDGs for past, present and future.

Agriculture

Agriculture is the growth engine of the developing economies through direct contribution in GDP and similarly agriculture produce comprises major exports for industrialized ones. However, with increasing demand from farm lands due to multiple land use requirements coupled with high farm output, sustaining agriculture on an ongoing basis to contribute to rapid economic growth seems an uphill task. The knowledge and wisdom gained by combining the power of spatial monitoring of agricultural lands with farm management right through the harvesting cycle to market, year-on-year, is the way forward.

Utilities

Utilities around the globe such as electricity, telecom, gas etc., have to maintain their assets as well as their networks for effectively managing the work processes and to provide better service experiences. Geospatial provides a unifying platform to these systems where they continue to work independently as well as interact and communicate with each other. Not just this, it also provides the real-time information regarding the utilities. Further, these integrated information systems fuel the operational processes that adds value to decision making.

Business Intelligence

Business intelligence (BI) platforms with advanced geospatial functionality acts as an enabler for business data that contains actionable location information. Spatial analysis integration with BI platforms for enabling greater market insight and steering business strategies in the right direction is driving the future of several segments. From logistics to retail, banking to insurance, real estate to tours and travel, location-based business intelligence has emerged as a key to success.

Infrastructure, Transport and Mobility

Infrastructure, transport and mobility is an integral part of our day to day life.

Safety and Security

Safety and Security are essentially linked to location and space. The intuitive, integrated and overarching view of spatial information provides decision making tool to law enforcement, emergency medical services, homeland security, emergency management as well as citizens.
