Geospatial Data in Your Business Application?

Integrating Geospatial Features is Easier Than Ever

Business applications that incorporate geospatial data are growing and the off-the-shelf tools available to exploit and integrate this information into business applications are better and easier than ever to use.

Here are some examples of how geospatial data integration is changing the way businesses operate:

  • In sales and marketing by defining sharper and more accurate market segments
  • In asset management by providing more efficient maintenance dispatch and routing
  • In transportation and logistics improving service levels and reducing fuel and driver costs
  • In fraud detection by detecting anomalies in healthcare claims, social programs, and credit card use
  • In situational awareness and intelligence to locate new stores, hospitals, and warehouses based on where competitors are and demographics
  • In risk analysis for insurance companies to determine overexposure to certain areas
  • In agriculture by improving land and soil analysis and nutrient use optimization
  • And many more

Here is our monthly curated list of thought-provoking books, blogs, podcasts, and articles discussing the current thinking and best practices around the use of Geospatial Data in Business:
