Geospatial

The world is powered by data; turning data into information helps us make decisions across all sectors of the economy. KTN hosts an innovation network (otherwise known as special interest group) that focuses on connecting the data holders and data processors with the people that can benefit from the insight geospatial data can provide.

From the large imagery data sets provided by earth observation through to sensor data connected through the Internet of Things, the Geospatial innovation network convenes and connects people across sectors to help them identify and overcome their geospatial data challenges and create opportunities to drive economic growth.

Over the next two years, KTN will be running a series of workshops to raise awareness of the insights that geospatial data can bring to key sectors such as infrastructure, finance, agri-food, transport and health.

Sign up to the Innovation Network (previously known as SIG) here to receive news and updates, and join the conversation on the Geospatial Insights LinkedIn group.
