Geospatial Advances Drive Big Data Problem, Solution
For thousands of years, humanity has sought to improve its ability to make decisions. Record keeping and information gathering has driven many of the innovations. Better information leads to competitive advantage on the battlefield and in the boardroom. But today, we have a truly 21st century problem: too much information. Or rather, too much data, and not enough information. ...
There are a number of approaches to drive to the solution of the Big Data problem currently in development that leverage geospatial tools in ways ranging from business as usual, to innovative, novel, and revolutionary. If anything is clear, it is that the eventual solution will use components from each of these different approaches, but more importantly, it is that geospatial technology – while a major contributor to the Big Data problem – is also a key part of the solution.
