2 Rapid Spatial Analytics

This new program focus seeks to collaborate in the development and review of a series of activities across the Rapid Spatial Analytics research program

The CRCSI will work with 12 partners to collaborate in the development and review of a series of activities across the Rapid Spatial Analytics (RSA) research program.

The RSA program will conduct research that improves the ability and efficiency of government and industry to rapidly create value to spatial information products using mobile and cloud infrastructure.

Some of the current themes to be considered for development are:

  • Big Spatial Analytics – efficient large volume data processing to derive useful products and visualisations
  • Real-Time Spatial Analytics – continuously streaming data that provides near real-time processing and outputs
  • Spatial Analytics Workflows – to help spatial analysts create, execute, and share analytical models and analyses across spatial disciplines to address common needs.

The 18 month research program will begin in January 2016.
