Editor's Note: We wondered if ChatGPT from OpenAI could be helpful in sharing the basics of geospatial technology with people. This entry is one of several exploring the output from the tool. Read our article and explore more resources!

 “Geospatial technology refers to a collection of tools, techniques, and applications that are used to collect, manage, analyze, and visualize data that has a geographic or spatial component. This technology relies heavily on geospatial data, which is information that is tied to a specific location or geographic feature.
Geospatial technology is used in a wide range of industries and fields, including environmental monitoring, urban planning, transportation management, agriculture, natural resource management, and more. Some common examples of geospatial technologies include Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and spatial data analysis tools.
These technologies enable users to map, measure, and model the physical and cultural characteristics of the earth's surface, as well as the built environment, in order to gain insights and inform decision-making. They are also used to support emergency response and disaster management efforts, as well as to monitor and manage infrastructure and natural resources.”
