Dr. Nadine Alameh’s session will discuss why we need standard APIs and data models to lower the barrier for using and incorporating location into applications. She will discuss how we are going to need location technologies, edge computing, new space techs, digital twins, and more to address the complex problems of our times — especially those related to disasters and climate change.
We live in an age where most if not all information is now easily associated with its location on, under, above, and even beyond Earth. The growing ability of being able to relate assets in space and time is opening up a world of possibilities for data analysis, visualization, and decision-making – in domains like transportation, digital twins, agriculture, disaster response, and the list goes on. Add to that our progress in being able to process data on the edge (whether on phones, cars, drones or satellites) either triggering events or responding to events, and we are on the verge of making sci-fi reality with smart cities and the metaverse.
Location is everywhere and it triggers a whole suite of events based on space and time relationships.
Dr. Nadine Alameh is the CEO of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and a recognized leader in the location/mapping community with experience in Aviation, Earth Observations, Public Safety and Defense.
