We collect, validate, register and maintain data, make it accessible and use it to build products and services for society.
When we examine trends in innovation, geospatial technology that leverages artificial intelligence, autonomous robots and augmented reality catches most of our collective attention. But widen the lens to the impact of the work we do, and the heart of the ‘why’ becomes vivid — people.
The geospatial nervous system is akin to the internet itself, and is the only way to truly understand the challenges we are up against and to get our best minds and sciences working in tandem on solutions.
High-quality geospatial data and technologies provide a foundational capability that underpins a range of other thematic and sector-specific strategies.
The interplay of a gamut of technol-ogies and real-time positioning will rapidly transform sectors ranging from navigation and construction to AgTech.
Virtualized ground networks such as the AWS Ground Station help customers uplink their Space data directly into the Cloud faster, and then process and transport that data around the world with low latency and a high level of security.
GNSS signal falsification can have disastrous impact on applications and markets that rely on precise position, navigation, and timing.
Rapid innovation around technologies has had a great impact on everyone, and national mapping agencies are no exception.
