We are on the edge of a geospatial transformation. What started as a simple data set is now becoming a powerful geospatial knowledge infrastructure, integrating data from a plethora of other sources. These rich new insights translate into better decision-making, catalysing new products and services across all industries. It also has the potential to add billions to our economy, boost the quality of life among our communities, and help protect our planet.
To explore the challenges and opportunities presented by geospatial intelligence, Knowledge Transfer Network and Ordnance Survey have collaborated on ‘The Power of Place – A Sustainable Future with Geospatial Insights’, a thought leadership publication that explores the changing landscape of location intelligence and what it means for business as usual.
To launch the publication, KTN will be running a series of four webinars exploring the innovation landscape, the economic opportunity and the role of geospatial insights in building a more sustainable, resilient future.
During the first session we will look at the importance of building a collaborative economy, and its role in unlocking data from silos and uses collective intelligence tools to harnesses knowledge across sectors.
We will also explore the importance of systems thinking and data ethics when creating resilient socio-economic infrastructures that are fit for a connected, autonomous future.
This event will be particularly relevant for policy and decision makers, as well as innovation leads working in the Infrastructure, Transport, Maritime, Finance and Sustainability sectors.
