Cambridge role in Singapore geospatial data venture
Cambridge-based big data innovator GeoSpock is collaborating with the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) to drive large scale geospatial data processing and analytics.
The introduction of GeoSpock’s data processing engine will enable location intelligence and rapid visualisation, supporting GeoWorks in the drive to promote business growth and innovation across industries.
GeoWorks was set up by the SLA as an industry centre to foster a vibrant geospatial ecosystem by connecting geospatial businesses, entrepreneurs, as well as users and support them with the resources and expertise to catalyse geospatial innovation and solutions.
For a start, GeoSpock will utilise the SLA’s OneMap datasets for geospatial-temporal visualisation on GeoSpock’s platform to accelerate business intelligence and insights.
The collaboration will explore the use of GeoSpock’s technology as a ‘data ocean’ for multiple disparate geo-temporal datasets to enable efficient cost optimisation of extreme-scale datasets, as well as the dynamic visual and programmatic analytical access for onward downstream use.
The partnership will also utilise GeoSpock’s technology to provide lightweight and fast 3D data processing; this vision includes the exploration and design of a centralised, accessible Smart City Operating System (OS).
Richard Baker, CEO at GeoSpock, said: “The development of data science and geospatial analytics at scale for use across Singapore is critical to support the country as it innovates for the future and we are committed to their vision to advance spatial big data management and analytics, data science capabilities, and machine learning technologies.”
GeoSpock provides a unique location intelligence platform that enables companies to access real-time data evaluation. Petabyte-level processing empowers decision makers to employ these insights to predict future scenarios.
