GEOSPATIAL - THE LOCATION OF THINGS
Geospatial information is “locational” information. It is data pinned onto a map. You use geospatial information daily to move around, book a taxi or car ride, or find nearby places. By including the element of "where", geospatial information provides you with insights for enhanced communication, greater convenience and higher optimization for our Smart Nation and the Future Economy.
THE GEOSPATIAL SPECTRUM
Mapping and Remote Sensing
Satellites and sensors collect raw geospatial data about the Earth’s surface, providing content for geospatial products and services.
Data and Database Management
Geospatial databases provide a systematic way to create, retrieve, update and manage geospatial data.
Systems and Applications
Systems and Apps link back-end database processes and front-end map functions to deliver geospatial services.
Modelling and Analysis
Geospatial modelling and analytics tools allow users to discover insights from geospatial data for enhanced decision making.
GLOBAL GEOSPATIAL DEVELOPMENTS
The United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) takes the lead in setting the agenda for global geospatial information development and promotes the benefits of geospatial information for addressing national policy and key global challenges.
