Mapping & Imagery Forum
GIS today is the backbone of major mission critical applications such as economic development, research, natural resources management, safety, and national security.
As GIS is becoming pervasive, the value of the geospatial information (such as GIS data and imagery) is becoming more widely recognized, customers are demanding more sophisticated products and greater & quicker access to the data. Customers are demanding more content, want to integrate data from multiple sources, integrate spatial data with non-spatial data and expect data currency, on-demand accessibility, and application-ready formats. In addition, with the advancement in remote sensing technologies, innovations in sensors, use of drones, UAVs for remote sensing, the accessibility and use of high-resolution data and imagery has grown significantly. Satellites and sensors are collecting new data, adding to a continuous collection effort — a time series of observations about our planet.
Similarly, a huge demand is surging in mapping community to improve the quality and value of geospatial output by automating processes through standardization, repeatability, and configuration of the production processes. This presents significant challenges for agencies (such as national mapping agencies and remote sensing centres) with a mandate to manage the data and making it accessible.
At Esri India’s Mapping & Imagery forum, get a close look at innovations driving capture and mapping technologies, their impact, and how agencies need to adapt to the new paradigm. Gather new ideas for your organization on improving workflows, collaboration, and decision-making.
