Geospatial Solutions Address Urgent Need for Real-Time Intelligence for any Global Situation

 
January 9th, 2012 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial

As we saw in 2011, the world is changing at a rapid pace.  From drastic population expansion to unprecedented levels of natural and man-made disasters, we are dealing with confounding global uncertainties that need to be addressed swiftly and precisely.

As we embrace this new global frontier, geospatial technologies and solutions are clearly the foundation for addressing these issues, managing change and ensuring that we have a safe future for our planet.  With the world continuing to be very tumultuous, it is obvious that decision-makers need to access new and highly relevant information through continual, accurate and timely updates to geospatial data.

One of the challenges of dealing with these urgent needs is that there are many silos that exist within large organizations, making the real-time sharing of geospatial information highly difficult.

The key is finding solutions providers who offer capabilities through the whole life-cycle of geospatial information management.  This includes content capture to on-demand geo-processing to delivering this actionable data to users whether they are on a desk top or mobile device.

By creating synergies and streamlining workflows, we can actually make geospatial solutions work in a way that will help us better respond to urgent needs.  The key is to combine all of the ingredients, which includes having GPS, airborne and laser-scanning sensors provide the data, then feeding it through photogrammetric, GIS and remote-sensing mapping systems.  This lifecycle ultimately provides decision-makers, first-responders, field experts and others to be able to make the right decisions at the right time.

Dealing with global uncertainties has been one of the biggest challenges throughout the ages.  Thankfully by providing access to the right geospatial information in real-time, we will be able to better respond to natural disasters and manage the ever-changing world we inhabit.

    Will this work in the ambulace service with patient flow and manitance on the life of the ambulances we run?

    Chad, thanks for the comment. Absolutely, these types of solutions can be used in any situation where assets can be tracked through the use of geospatial data. For example, for utilities companies, many use these solutions to track any type of asset that is out in the field — whether it it for vegetation management, or mapping areas of high outages. The same could be used in the management of ambulances and monitoring patient flow and usage to ensure that your ambulance fleet is has been fully maintained to handle maximum capacity. The uses of these types of solutions are nearly limitless.
