Geospatial

Geospatial technology encompasses the data management plus the analysis of features, objects, and people that are geographically referenced. Geospatial technology uses satellite and airborne imaging technology as well as land surveying and field-based mapping to gather data. Geospatial information is used in urban planning, transportation analysis, exploration, agriculture, marketing, site selection, and mobile location-based services. It uses computer graphics technology to provide visualization of geographically referenced information. Information is stored in relational and object databases and maps are produced both in analog and digital form.
