A huge technology revolution is happening in the world. And Geospatial Technology is the most important technology in this revolution and it is applied in all sectors.  It is applied in urban development, education, telemedicine, maintenance of roads, railways and waterworks, for analysis of demography, agriculture and in many other fields.

Geospatial technology is helping our government to achieve its goals in programs like Swachh Bharat, Pradhan Mantri Awaaz Yojana and Smart City Program. Space technology had entered all households in India.  India is one of the few countries in the world to make a big advance in geospatial technology. It is become a pioneer in geospatial technology. Our capability has been acknowledged and accepted by countries who have been working on space technology even before we started it.

Geospatial technology has become an essential part of new developmental progresses and it has transformed your country. Our government shows a progressive approach to geospatial technology and it is applied everywhere. Through this technology government monitors all the corners of our country and makes further plans for the development of our country. And this technology makes every project a success.

India is not only getting ahead but it is one of the few countries which has made a great advancement in geospatial technology in a short period. India will definitely make astounding developments in the future using geospatial technology.

Geospatial Media and Communications is pleased to announce the winners for The TechRuptors. The awards recognise young entrepreneurs, who have built new businesses or are making a difference in the success of their companies and, in many cases, are making positive and lasting contributions to the community. The award ceremony took place on the 17th January during the Gala Dinner of Geospatial World Forum 2018, in Hyderabad, India.

 

The Technology Disruptors are:

  • Wills Marshall, Co-Founder and CEO, Planet-Technology Disruptor: Will Marshall revolutionized the entire earth observation industry with satellites as small as a loaf of bread. Launched in 2010 from a garage, the company, earlier known as Planet Labs, today has the largest number of satellites in orbit.
  • Mark Johnson, Co-Founder and CEO, Descartes Labs- Disruptor in the Making: Mark is known as the pioneer of Artificial Intelligence in geospatial space. Under his leadership, Descartes Labs is teaching computers to see the world with deep learning and artificial intelligence. Its machine learning has created the first living atlas of the planet with the use of satellite imagery.
  • Steve Coast, Founder, OpenStreetMap- Social Disruptor: Inspired by the success of Wikipedia, Steve Coast founded OpenStreetMap in 2004 when he was still a student. It took a few years for the idea of an open map to catch on. Today OpenStreetMap is considered a prominent example of voulteered geographic information. It is among the most heavily used sources for mapping data for about 2 million registered uses. It is the defacto map for large chunks of the world. The project is still going strong, with new and improved data added to it everyday by anybody who sees the value in an open map project.
  • Javier de la Torre, Co-Founder and CEO, CARTO- Technology Disruptor: As a student of Agriculture Engineering and Environmental Science, Javier de la Torre is passionate about data and it’s potential to improve the way decisions are made. By 2012, Javier discovered the magic of location intelligence, when he moved ahead and founded CARTO with a vision to democratize data analysis and visualisation.

Watch Geospatial world forum 2018 live where  delegates from 120+ countries come together to discuss about 4th industrial Revolution.

With the advent of information technology in the past half-century, geographic information has evolved as a common language of 7 billion people around the world. And disruptive tools have further integrated geographical information into broader IT and Engineering processes.

While disruption gets to be new normal, geospatial is getting ubiquitous, pervasive, and
‘by default’ in our daily living. As we prepare to enter the Fourth Industrial Revolution, driven by Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Internet of Things, and Robotics, geospatial aspires to be an integral part of this disruptive journey. However, in the process, it gets disrupted as well, opening its closely guarded boundaries to larger market drivers, and creating new growth opportunities, weathering through market forces and consumer behavior. A host of next generation entrepreneurs are joining the innovation bandwagon and beginning to explore the hidden treasure of spatial thinking, empowering IT-enabled services and optimizing engineering workflows and business processes.

Disruption is not only all about technological innovation, but also cuts across complete value chain of the business lifecycle. While opening new market opportunities, disruption brought a whole set of new business model towards delivering tangible information services in user friendly manner through a collaborative and interactive platform. Simplifying utility and value of geospatial knowledge for consumers became determining factor for successful business models.

At the same time, it also threatened the well-established heavy boundaries and challenged legacies of existing business ecosystems, leaving them with no options but to pursue transformation towards solutions-centric business models through collaborative platforms, embedding its capabilities with processes, workflows and systems of user industries, optimizing productivity and efficiency, and subsequently amplifying its value and impact in economy.

Though, geospatial industry is growing exponentially in terms of market size and its value impact in the world economy and society, its journey hasn’t been and going forward not likely to be smooth at all. The industry, which is very upbeat with technology innovation, rosy market prospects, defined value propositions and likely financial investments, is going through a churning process as it faces competition from unknown quarters, challenges from legacy practices, shortage of qualified manpower, deficit of market driven leadership, and above all ruthless consumer behavior. Such a transformation process would attract few casualties, forcing market consolidation and portfolio integration.

However, this initial painful experience is opening avenues for a larger pool of innovators
and business leaders, at the same time creating a collaborative environment to harness
larger business goals. Undoubtedly, geospatial industry is at the cusp of a digital revolution, simplifying and amplifying geospatial practices and values in world economy and society.

The 2018 edition of the Geospatial World Forum under the theme ‘GEO4IR: Geo-Enabling Fourth Industrial Revolution’, will be held between January 15 – 19, 2018 at Hyderabad International Convention Center, Hyderabad, India. Geospatial World Forum is the flagship event of the Geospatial Media and Communications.

Geospatial Media and Communications is the world’s largest geospatial knowledge platform. It aims to facilitate collaboration and demonstrate the value and benefits of geospatial technology for organizations, governments and citizens.

The event serves as a crucial platform to understand best practices and create opportunities for exchange of ideas between the government and the industry leaders. It is imperative for governments to participate in these events to understand best practices and facilitate the development of a successful local geospatial industry. These include encouraging the adoption of geospatial data in informing decisions in urban planning, health and emergency services, disaster management and environmental protection, modernizing technical infrastructure required for data collection and incentivizing private sector participation.

Geospatial World Forum also offers a unique opportunity to government and industry leaders to discuss how to design policies that make better use of geospatial technology to tackle economic and social issues.

The 2018 edition will discuss various aspects such as Smart City, Construction and Engineering, Location Intelligence, Defence and Public Security, Geospatial Innovation, Sustainable Development Goals, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence Internet of Things and more.

The conference will also host four key events under one roof – GeoBuiz Summit, AI&IoT Summit, Geo 4SDGS Forum and Location World.
