Calling All Geospatial Data Providers for Upcoming GISCafe Special Coverage
May 4th, 2018 by Susan Smith
Data providers abound in the GIS and geospatial industry. Choices range from mapping, built and natural terrain modeling, survey, GIS/LIS technologies, geospatial web, asset inventory, mapping, geodetic and engineering surveying, photogrammetry, satellite imagery and real-time satellite data, remote sensing, aerial and ground-based LiDAR surveys, geographic and land information systems (GIS/LIS), and spatial computing and analysis, data provided by drones, and much more.
There are many free data and information sources for both spatial and geographic needs, from both the government and commercial sectors. Many data sources are available within minutes of making a request. Geospatial data can come in customizable forms as well as off-the-shelf, and can be used for many purposes outside the GIS industry. Much geospatial is now disseminated to a vast public who need to be “in-the-know” about rapidly changing situations during catastrophic events.
While geospatial data is used for many situations, technologies often create and analyze data with specific intelligence that can then be used for the delivery of actionable information to solve real world problems and provide an accurate view of a critical situation or hotspot.
Join GISCafe Voice in the discovery of what’s currently out there among data providers, and how to get the source of data and information that you most need.
