The Geekification of GIS
- Presentation speakers
The pace of change in technology is having a huge impact on the GIS space. This disruption is forcing traditional organisations to rethink their approach to GIS delivery. At Geoplex we concentrate on the use of technological innovations and assist organisations adopt these so that they can manage change more effectively. In this paper we’ll discuss real examples of how techniques and practises, inherited from the broader technology and innovation space, are filtering into the GIS space.
We’ll look at how cloud solutions offer a more agile and nimble approach to traditional monolithic spatial data infrastructures. We’ll examine software delivery techniques we’ve put into practise to allow organisations to scale and manage large spatial applications. Finally we’ll talk about some interesting software innovations and how they’re beginning to have an impact in the spatial world.
