This StoryMap describes each of the 14 Global Fundamental Geospatial Data Themes adopted by the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UNGGIM). They support the UN SDGs and are crucial for informed social, economic, and environmental decision making for sustainable development.
Enable Innovative Strategies at Your Organization in 2021
The Esri Federal GIS (FedGIS) Conference is the largest annual meeting of federal government GIS community members. This year's virtual event will offer excellent opportunities to learn, share, and network.
Part 4 of a 7 part series exploring GIS and Artificial Intelligence
Welcome to part 4 of my AI and GeoAI Series that will cover the more technical aspects of GeoAI and ArcGIS. Previously, part 1 of this series covered the Future Impacts of AI on Mapping and Modernization which introduced the concept of GeoAI and why you should care about having an AI as a future coworker. Part 2 of the series, GIS, Artificial Intelligence, and Automation in the Workplace covered specific geospatial professions that will be drastically effected by introduction of GeoAI technology in the workplace. Part 3 addressed Teaming with the Machine - AI in the workplace the emergence of the new geospatial working relationship between information, humans, and artificial intelligence to be successful in an organizations mission.
Part 3 of a 7 part series exploring GIS and Artificial Intelligence
As part of a seven-part blog, we originally covered the introduction of automation, AI, and new technologies into the workplace. These new technologies are helping workers to free work time so that workers can focus on creativity, reducing mundane tasks, and solving complex problems in the workplace.
Part 2 of a 7 part series exploring GIS and Artificial Intelligence
Many professions are being impacted by the introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the workplace. Future employment and career choices will be forever changed by how susceptible they are to automation and computerization.
Explore our new series of learning pathways and lessons designed to guide you through the process of national mapping strategies and technologies. These 6 pathways were created to address the fundamental workflows of a national mapping agency: data collection, management, production and analysis, and collaboration.
Part 1 of a 7 part series exploring GIS and Artificial Intelligence
We are now living in an age where technology is the backbone of successful mapping organizations. By embracing technology all parts of the workplace have become more productive when working on projects. Geospatial organizations have continuously improved upon production and analysis processes by introducing automation and new technologies to the workforce.
Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi), the national mapping agency of Ireland, has undergone a digital transformation that includes great efficiency gains in mapmaking processes, and the creation of a one-stop shop called GeoHive to collect and serve the government’s spatial data across departments. These changes now form a backbone of capability to take mapping to a whole new level.
Key takeaways from this article:
Open data adds transparency and enables interactions.
Location data underpins key government objectives.
Linking initiatives through location pins hope around plans.
This is the second in a three-part series on Ordnance Survey Ireland’s map modernization efforts.
Improved data sharing leads to cost savings and better decisions across government with a greater sense of place for citizens.
National mapping agencies, like many other industries, have seen impacts from the disruption of the internet. The many changes in information flow have caused a complete rethink about what they do and how they do it.
Key takeaways from this article:
Open data leads to increased citizen interaction and improved government collaboration.
Online mapping educates the public about how spatial is special, while allowing them to create custom maps.
Freely available data encourages new investments in Ireland.
