Big Data and GIS

What is Big Data?

Big Data is defined by volume, velocity and variety — large amounts of data coming in quickly in a number of formats.

Geospatial data is a crucial component of big data, adding context that allows for better, multidimensional insights that facilitate smarter decisions, improved business operations and innovation to deliver a strong competitive advantage.

How can GIS and Big Data solve problems?

Every organisation grapples with the challenge of how to best refine raw data into a meaningful asset — one with measurable business value.

Location being a fundamental aspect of data, makes spatial analysis a valuable tool.

Using location intelligence, organisations can derive insights, uncover hidden patterns and support an informed decision-making process.

Tap into your Big Data

ArcGIS allows you to bring together layers of data from various sources — including existing business intelligence (BI) tools — analyse it to deliver insights.

Deployed as a whole-of-business solution or as a location analytics component integrated into your unstructured database or existing business intelligence (BI) tools, ArcGIS will deliver insights that can be easily shared with others across an organisation.
