As the pace of innovation continues at a breakneck pace throughout the remote sensing industry, new applications for spatial data are emerging. Quantum Spatial’s Anand Iyer describes how the influences of technology and data analytics are reminiscent of the same evolution of the internet of things. Read the full article HERE.
With the advent of new acquisition platforms, smaller and more efficient sensors, as well as forces like cloud computing, remote sensing is again on the precipice of significant innovation. We are moving beyond the traditional interpretation of remote sensing as an aerial mapping, GIS and earth observation discipline to something that resembles another recent development, the industrial Internet of Things (IoT). Interconnected devices on converged platforms streaming data on a continuous basis will paint a new vision of the world in which we live.
