Read this interesting article on GISLOUNGE about Big Data and GIS. It accuratly points out that “with Big Data technology, a 360 degree view of the customer with a spatial component can be obtained. Predictive models can be built with data from social media conversations, mobile phones and browsing behavior. Customer demand is predicted and integrated with supply chain management for a smooth delivery mechanism along shortest path. This drives better customer relationship and efficient use of resources.” Combining both technologies can lead more efficient decision processes, new customer insights and much more in areas like: climate modeling and analysis, location analytics, retail and e-commerce, intelligence gathering, aviation industry, disease surveillance, disaster response, political campaigns and elections, banking, insurance and fraud analysis. With the tools we have at Geosparc, we’re ready to help our customers with it.
The article published on GISGeography – 10 Free GIS Data Sources – touches upon an interesting issue. The article starts with: “In a perfect world, you’d be able to find all the free GIS data you need in a single website. Of course, it would have to be free, downloadable from an authoritative source. But well, you know the drill. The world’s not perfect, life’s not fair.” It then list 10 free GIS data sources. The idea of having the geo data you need, including both public and your own data, available via one single website is something we’ve done for quite some companies. The solution? Sleevemonkey. It makes web mapping and analyzing GIS data real easy and you can add as much data layers as you want or need. Great stuff. Give us a call or send us an email to show you how it works.
Working on applications using GIS technologies can look ‘dull’ but the end-result rearly is. Take the second volume of the Atlas of Design: all extremely wonderful maps built by a team of historians, designers and geographers bringing it all together. And in most cases built using complex GIS technologies. Great examples of how technology can help make things clear, simple and understandable, in a beautiful way. That is what GIS can do for your business or organization: to unlock the full potential of all the (big) data you have and turn it into sharp, meaningful insights.
Geosparc will be present at Belgium’s first FOSS4G Conference. Dirk Frigne, our CEO, will give a keynote presentation and participate in a panel debate about: “Where's the money? Disruptive Business Models in Geospatial Industry”. Various people from Geoparc will give presentations about open source geo-applications and Geomajas, our open source software framework from which the most powerful and scalable geo-applications can be developed. Other speakers include top-notch guys like e.g. Jeff McKenna, President OSGeo worldwide and Bart De Lathouwer, Director, Interoperability Programs, Europe at Open Geospatial Consortium. We also have a booth where we demo various geo-applications for government and business.
The event takes place Thursday October 29 at Tour & Taxis in Brussels (from 9.00h till 17.45h). Check www.foss4g.be for the full agenda, list of speakers, how to register etc.
Come & see us at the first Foss4G Conference in Belgium!
2015 is the year of the Soils. "The multiple roles of soils often go unnoticed. Soils don’t have a voice, and few people speak out for them. They are our silent allies in food production", wise words from José Graziano da Silva, FAO Director-General. To raise public awareness on the importance of our soil and its useful organisms (the “soil heroes”), the Flemish government (www.lne.be) has realized a fun interactive map application. Our engineers at Geosparc built this application using open source software and modern web technology.
