Why Geospatial data?

There are different sources of data we come across each day. There are various means to collect data and those are handy for their own purposes. The data from the advanced technologies help to overcome various sort comes arises from conventional data collection methods. In the field of Geospatial, there has been huge advancement. Most of the primary data related to the spaces occupied by geospatial data. GPS satellite, tower helps to track location around us similarly Geospatial data works the same way. 

Geospatial Data

It's data related to the object and phenomenon occupying/occurring in a particular location on the earth's surface. Anything or any action that occurred on the earth's surface recorded collectively is  Geospatial data. This combines all information including temporal information along with coordinates of the earth's surface. The previously limited access data now has been opened, which means anyone can access it for free.

Any information in the form of digital data now has become the basis of decisions taken by businesses, organizations, and governments. But the scenario now is changing from accessing data to the right data at the right time for making accurate decisions. This decision-making will be determining the success and failure of any decision-making organization or personnel.

So, choosing the right data sources, tools, solutions and the experts related to it is essential. Geospatial data previously confined to use by only the military sector, intelligence agencies, aeronautical or space agencies now have expanded to global use into almost all fields and institutions as it is able to provide new insight and information and an excellent basis for planning and decision making.

It can be used in almost every sector to achieve the required growth and digital transformation. The geospatial data and technologies can be used from the identification stage to the final stage for making plans and decision making at different levels.
