Servers are increasingly becoming the heart of any geospatial analysis system. All face a similar challenge, whether the system is in the ‘cloud’, a secure data center or on a single machine running in an office. This challenge is primarily the ability to deal with the ever-increasing quantities and variety of data the world now produces at an unprecedented rate. A solution will also have to be able to cope with the explosion of formats that the rise of Big Data has prompted.
For mission-critical systems, purposely designed software is required, tested in the most demanding environments, such as the one offered by Luciad, which has been working with some of the most demanding Big Data users such as NATO and EUROCONTROL during the past few years.
Various applications in the field of security and defense data include monitoring and analysis of events, convoy planning taking into account the risk of attacks and optimizing safety, medical evacuation based on known locations, and more.
Both commercial and government organizations recognize the enormous fiscal, operational and social benefits of utilizing their geospatial data for analysis. However, because the volume, variety and velocity of the data are continually expanding, it generates increasing problems for those tasked with the storage, analysis and serving of the information within an organization.
In addition, companies are experiencing challenges related to the many new sensor platforms that are emerging, many of which did not exist a few years ago and which must be incorporated into future GIS applications, according to gim-international.com.
Purposely designed software is required therefore required in order to deliver performance and accuracy without compromise for the analysis of geospatial Big Data and the location information that flows from the Internet of Things.
Learn more about the latest innovations in big data. Various solutions for big data challenges in both the civilian and military spheres will be discussed and presented at the coming Big Data for Security and Intelligence Conference and Exhibition.
The event will be held on February 21st at the Lago Conference Center in Rishon LeZion, with the participation of the leading experts and industries of the big data ecosystem in Israel and abroad.
