The rapid increase of sensing and mobile devices is an unstoppable information source that is transforming human lives in incredible ways. Every two days the human race is now generating as much data as was generated from the dawn of humanity through the year 2003. Big Data is driven by the real time collection, analyses, and visualization of vast amounts of the information most of which has a geospatial or location component. The data was measured somewhere or it describes events at some location. Processing this enormous and varied stream of geospatial information with new big data techniques will bring new benefits to many applications in our world.
The Location Powers: Big Data workshop will bring together leading developers of big geospatial data systems. Participants will not only hear the latest developments but will contribute to the collective discussion advancing the use of big data computing techniques applied to geospatial data with results in many applications.
A public webinar will be held on Wed 3 November at 10:00EDT to share the Big Data Whitepaper and outcomes of the Big Data Summit
