Has the time come for rethinking processes, workflows and tools in order to leverage the massive amounts of geospatial data available? And how do we ensure that all this geospatial data can become the foundation from which the majority of geospatial 2D and 3D maps, charts and simulation databases are produced?
We are witnessing an explosion in the amount of geo-located information collected on a daily basis. In fact, there is more geospatial data being collected now than ever before. In just five years, there is likely to be a million times more geospatial data than we have today.
Why does this matter? And how did we get here?
