Mapping Cloud Solutions for

Geospatial Professionals

Mapping cloud solutions for geospatial professionals

Electronic data and communications is considered as a crucial

element for the contemporary business. However, when we discuss

geospatial technologies, well, it is still in its developing stage. While

IoT applications highlights endpoints set up with sensors as its main

source of data collection, geospatial technology on the other side,

support GPS/GNSS location networks to collect data before moving

the specific data to be processed in the cloud. Here we will discuss

more about geospatial technology and how cloud services can help

shape it.

Legacy geospatial technology

Geospatial technology has a synergetic relationship with computer

science and now with the need to automate repetitive process and

computer technology, the latest geospatial systems has to be

adopted. Back then, standard project deliverables consisted of

hardcopy drawings and reports.

That means it used legacy approaches to analyze the data, which

was quiet inconvenient and a rather sluggish process as the results

often came as 2D drawings along with written analysis. Thus to make

things more efficient, most of the deliverables were moved to

electronic formats and now CAD files, reports and spreadsheets have

become common in most enterprises.

Now after applying the new approach, geospatial enterprises are

able to share deliverables quickly and smoothly. Right from data

acquisition to information dissemination, nearly all of geospatial

systems are now making modern electronics, communications and

computer systems a part of their industry. As a result, cloud

technology for the management and analysis of geospatial

information will likely deliver better flexibility in organizational


Although the new wave has introduced considerable acquisition in

terms of productivity, the geospatial world has yet to comprehend

the significance of cloud.

Cloud solution advantages to geospatial world which

With a vast evolution in the spheres of technology, there are now

cloud-based platforms of software, data and related services

available to better meet the demands of the geospatial industry. The

ingrained technology uses cloud services to support the task engaged

in the geospatial environment such as data collection, data

management, spatial data catalogs, etc. Integration of cloud services

with technologies involved in the geospatial community enables the

organizations to effectively accomplish the task and achieve the

efficiency that is been looked upon by the geospatial professionals in

the field.

Let's make this more simpler with an example. So how exactly cloud

proves beneficial here? Cloud computing enables the geospatial

professionals to locate all their essential data under one roof rather

than keeping a chunk of it at different location.

For instance, a surveyor requires a bunch of data to arrange and

execute a particular project and this counts in data from previous

surveys conducted, data from government, maps and other related

information. What's complicated here is all the data is not maintained

at a single location. Some may be held in the surveyor’s possession,

while the rest may come from private organizations, government

bodies and so on.

Cloud technology has helped made this less burdensome. Cloud

service providers offer tools that enables to store mission-critical data

at a single location, making it quicker to find and use the information

specific to the project. This eliminates the need to go through the

bundle of data and formats manually and enables to simplify

standard and time-consuming pre-survey jobs.

With the cloud service, the individual can access the geospatial data

and download it to his system.

Moreover, the solution is a real benefit for those on the field as well

because they can use cloud applications and hosting solutions to

transfer information to streamline workflows and data

management. Field crews can also keep a record of and manage the

location and status of equipment used in field in addition to software

and firmware. The latest software services enables surveyors to

customize system to simplify data collection on several platforms

such as Windows and Android. The best part is that the system can

synchronize field data from multiple crews to a single server.
