Global Outlook 2016
Just released is the Global Outlook 2016 report on the spatial information industry. Curated by Dr Isabel Coppa, Dr Peter Woodgate and Dr Zaffar Mohamed-Ghouse, this report is a compilation of published material covering technology developments that relate directly to spatial technologies or that operate in support of spatial technologies.
There is a sense from this review that the world has a nascent realisation that the digital transformation is providing us with a positioning and location capability that is precise, ‘always on’, and is tracked, stored and retrievable for instant or future use. Once privacy concerns have been addressed and effective safeguards against the potential dangers are in place, the transformative applications of this capability will be enormous.
