Harnessing the Power of Big Data with Geospatial Mapping

    Why geospatial mapping works

    The concept of geospatial mapping is quite simple: Large sets of specific data are overlaid on a digital map, producing an easily digestible and geographical representation of an organization's critical information. Having the ability to "see" data, as opposed to reading it, allows for faster, more accurate decision-making.

It's no mystery that Big Data has the power to solve a number of known problems and unlock new ways of doing business. What is a mystery – for many organizations – is how to take advantage of the voluminous quantity of unstructured data. International Data Corporation forecasts that the Big Data technology and services market will grow at a 27 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to $32.4 billion through 2017 – or about six times the growth rate of the overall information and communication technology (ICT) market.

While the commercial sector still struggles with how to capitalize on Big Data, military and intelligence organizations have utilized geospatial mapping as a way to corral Big Data and harness its power. In fact, according to Thermopylae, the lessons learned by the public sector may offer tremendous insight into the enterprise.
