Geospatial Data Applications

With the technologically speeding world, GIS education plays a big-time vital role in the process of advancement. CARTO, having been established back in 2012, has now successfully set its mark as the world’s leading organization in the field of GIS education. Starting from cell phones to connected cars, the location data helps transform the way we lead lives and the way we intend to grow our business.


CARTO is one of the world’s most advanced Location Intelligence Platform, guiding the organizations to use spatial data and analysis for more methodical and structured services. It enhances in providing better delivery routes, behavioral marketing, strategic store placements, and many more. Through CARTO developers’ help, data scientists and analysts work towards optimizing business procedures and anticipating future consequences through spatial data science.

Objectives of GAH

Geospatial Technology is one such advancement that must reach an enormous mass. Geospatial Awareness Hub ensures an awareness about this technology through its workshops, meetups and other educational events.

From GIS, mapping to remote sensing Geospatial Awareness Hub has been trying to promote efficient education on each geospatial technology sphere. GAH also has been promoting job offers in the field of geospatial technology. It has drastically worked towards building a robust Geospatial Community where all the Geospatial Solutions’ questions can be answered correctly. They also have been working towards Geospatial Talent Sourcing, Geospatial Education and Courses and many Freelance Provision for many aspiring minds.

Spatial Data Science Conference 2020

The SDSC, a massive online webinar, will be conducted by CARTO in collaboration with GAH. SDSC 2020 aims to bring together a wide range of spatial problem solvers on a global level. It is aiming towards the interaction of these minds at the intersection of Data Science and Geographical Information System.

At this global conference, some specific presentations and workshops educating about cutting-edge techniques in spatial modeling, spatial statistics, machine learning, geo processing at scale and widespread implementation of specialized data sets. This year as the SDSC will be happening on an online medium, it aims to fetch a larger participation globally. There will be some interesting interactions between many Spatial Data Science Experts.

This event offers you an opportunity to connect with many industry experts who would be sharing their views regarding the enhancement of this field. They will also educate regarding how the growth of Spatial Data Science is affecting the Location Intelligence community.
