Having a finer-grained view of the world in ever greater detail will provide the foundation for many of the economic opportunities and experiences that we are going to have over the next decade. Geospatial technologies are providing the underpinning for disruptive innovation in sectors from driverless cars, augmented reality and wearables, to construction, agriculture, cities, security, retail, and much more.
Today, the core technologies that allow us to capture the physical environment require extensive human involvement. How will this change? As geospatial tech and data science converge, how will the data get processed, updated, and used in services? What new experiences and economic opportunities will it unlock?
