In recent years, agencies have been creating and collecting massive amounts of unstructured information – and efficiently aggregating and integrating all data into GIS has been a challenge. A high-fidelity representation of the real world can seem unattainable – historical context, human activities and abstract concepts are often absent from current GIS views.
Failure to accurately capture the world and its events, people, places and other information in the proper context can lead to huge risks. In addition to decreased productivity and higher costs by system redundancy and manual operations, it can also negatively affect decision-making. Agencies need to filter through the noise and turn volumes of information into actionable insights.
This quick resource guide will help you better understand this new type of geospatial analysis. We’ll discuss an overview of geospatial analysis in the public sector, why it matters, how we can be better at it, as well as case studies that will help you capture and analyze the world as it is – in all its richness, complexity and velocity.
