MISSOULA, Mont. – GCS announced a webinar series focused on developing solutions to the challenges of Geospatial Big Data by leveraging the fusion of location analytics, mobile platforms and cloud technologies. The first webinar will feature "Montana Site Selector," a cloud-based, web-enabled GIS application that GCS built for a consortium of economic development organizations in Montana.

“Organizations are being overwhelmed by the massive volume of geospatial data they have to manage, process and serve as intelligible information to their stakeholders anytime, anywhere,” said GCS Founder and CEO Alex Philp, PhD. “The convergence of cloud, analytics and mobile technologies provides the foundation for solving the unique problems of Geospatial Big Data.”

To register for the first GCS Geospatial Big Data webinar, visit the GCS website at www.YourDataSmarter.com. The one-hour free webinar will be broadcast live at 3 pm (U.S. Eastern Daylight Time) on Wednesday, June 12.

The webinar will demonstrate how Montana Site Selector makes land information from multiple databases accessible by analyzing complex geospatial queries submitted by users via computer or mobile devices. The Site Selector solution developed by GCS leverages advanced location analytics and cloud technologies to derive meaningful intelligence from demographic, transportation, employment, parcel and real estate data sets. Information is delivered in the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform.

The webinar will offer valuable learning opportunities for large organizations that must manage and make geospatial information available to staff in many locations across the enterprise. Webinar attendees will learn to:

  • Develop a next-generation, web-based GIS enabled with Cloud technology,
  • Streamline complex workflows with advanced location analytics,
  • Derive meaningful intelligence from multiple disparate data sets,
  • Deliver business insights to personnel and the public via the mobile devices they use every day.
