The application of data analytics with a spatial dimension is extending across most industry segments and yielding best results. Powered with Cloud technology, a comprehensive database helps companies in predictive analysis, identifying the errors and finding the best solution in less time.
The technology, known as IBM Pairs Geoscope, is a cloud-based service that utilizes hyperspectral imaging. Recently IBM successfully deployed it for reducing power outages by assisting energy companies to predict where trees and other vegetation may pose a risk to power lines.
Geospatial information, in spite of the great developments and technological advancements, is yet to be harnessed. The emergence of technologies like PAIRS Geoscope could prove to be a game changer in this regard. This would also enable us to address grave challenges like climate change. MORE
