28th October by Anita Lankinen and Sampo Savolainen

Sampo Savolainen and Anita Lankinen look at some of the latest technological advances and analyse how they use spatial data infrastructures, what else can and should be done, and explore what role they will play in our future.

Transport agencies, cities and municipalities, environmental agencies, mapping and cadaster authorities – all of these public organisations have been collecting and storing spatial data for many years.

Spatineo Monitor helps the City of Riihimäki to maintain high-quality spatial web services

30th August by Laura Waldén

The City of Riihimäki in Finland started using Spatineo Monitor in August 2016 to maintain continuous quality of service and demonstrate the impact of their spatial web services.

Sophisticated Data Aggregation Using GIS
by Bill Wolf and Alissa Soria @ CIOReview
"We're at the tipping point for a next generation GIS technology, where users will have access to so much location based data and analytical tools to handle it, that the insights possible will provide significant advantages to those who've made the investment." 
The SDI map shows the countries in the world which have developed or are in the process of developing a Spatial Data Infrastructure
Cloud computing and GIS platforms are a match made in heaven for the modern enterprise
