Geospatial technology is modern equipment used to visualise, measure and analyse the earth in terms of location. This usually involves GPS (global positioning systems) and GIS (geographical information systems).
Two of the most famous examples are Google Maps and Google Earth, which unleashed geospatial technology to the masses almost 10 years ago. Since then geospatial technology has exploded onto the scene, rapidly evolving the way we gather information and improving how we plan and handle daily life, with apps like Uber and Yelp. And it’s still in its infancy.
This booming business is becoming increasingly prominent in our daily lives and is enhancing the way we live, work and play. From the satellites orbiting Earth in outer space, all the way down to the mobile phone in your hand, we have become reliant on geospatial technologies to get from A to B, manage natural disasters and expand cities.
Businesses that understand the power of geospatial technology have been quick to utilise its advantages. It now supports a wide range of industries spanning from the military to social media, with technologies including:
Satellite navigations systems
Global positioning systems (GPS)
Geographic information systems (GIS)
