‘The big picture enables better decision making’


Rotterdam: The big picture is important because prints allow GIS professional to arrive at a conclusion by combining geographic and numeric information and the geospatial sector is very important to Hewlett Packard because of the complexity and amount of data it handles.

Speaking at the opening plenary session of the Geospatial World Forum 2013 here on Tuesday, Ramon Bartolome Pastor, Vice President and General Manager of HP’s Large Format Printing Business, laid down why the company’s large format are critical for GIS workflows. HP is constantly innovating to bridge the paper and digital gap. And since it is a IT solutions company, it understands the workflows and their importance.

The complexity and size of GIS files are huge and there is also an underlying need for contextual environment. Image quality is another key issue and large format prints help in this aspect. Large format prints also enable better decision making, communicate with clarity and improve day to day productivity of GIS executives, he added.
