Mapping the world in 3D
Maps are increasingly essential in our lives. But why look at a fixed 2D map when it is possible to make it come alive with real-time information and detail?
Aided by GPS, Remote Sensing, the internet and the globalization of data, GIS Mapping supports time-sensitive decisions, drives faster response times, saves costs, increases efficiencies and helps to prepare for future conclusions about a project or an area.
GIS Mapping programs can present enormous datasets, supporting better decision making. By leveraging and synchronizing data from disparate sources, advanced Geographic Information System Mapping offers geo-spatial intelligence to offer near-instantaneous contextual understanding.
There are many applicable sources and an increasing density of information. Geo-referenced sensors, such as Traffic, Weather, Vehicle and Shot Detection is combined with information from data services such as Environment, Intelligence, Weather and News. GIS Mapping then presents superior 3D and 4D situational awareness of complex information, and the ability to integrate live and recorded video streams in 2D or directly embedded in 3D.
Augmented reality adds an additional graphical layer on top of video image showing interactive items and can support detailed projections of the future.
GIS facilitates safety with incident detection, security and safety related incidents and in monitoring fleets. It allows better land-use planning, road and utility maintenance, emergency management, infrastructure assessment, and development and property management. New data sensors, from soil temperature to vehicles, traffic cameras or video feeds from store and stadiums increase opportunities for GIS Mapping to support increased efficiencies and reduce waste. Spatial analysis in retail is helping the industry to gain invaluable insights in stock delivery, store management, inventory management, marketing and sales.
