Hyderabad (India), February 9, 2015: “Our ability to acquire and generate geospatial data has and will continue to expand exponentially,” said Sanjeev Trehan, Regional Manager – Geospatial Division, SAARC, Trimble Navigation. “The ability to change the data into usable knowledge is the key here,” he added. Trehan was speaking at the recently concluded South Asia Geospatial Forum which was held on February 9, 2015, at Hyderabad International Convention Centre.
Further, he credited customers for the rise in demand for solutions. “Key drivers of solution centric geospatial solutions are customers who today are demanding more from their geospatial data,” he said. “This has changed the very nature of how data was collected and resulted in improved efficiencies. Today’s surveyors are not just looking at collecting and processing data but also analysing it,” he added.
During his 20-minute presentation to the delegates, he also talked about various upcoming trends and challenges. “The future of geospatial technology will not be just restricted to the adoption of 3D visualisation. Customers are increasingly looking at the possibility of 4D visualisation. UAVs are going to be increasingly used for additional data capture. The key here would be the speed at which the data could be provided to the customer. In addition, by the end of 2015, over 100 GNSS satellites will be in orbit — this will be a challenge. However, the geospatial will rely more on cloud computing and move towards integrated geospatial data solutions.”
