Geospatial shares the opportunities and the challenges of both high performance computing and big data. With applications from visualising IoT data through to ingesting drone footage, it brings with it increasingly large data sizes, complicated data pipelines, HPC-level transformation demands, and often massive traffic from public users. From Smart Cities through to location-based marketing, rapid analysis of large volumes of geospatial data is becoming increasingly important. In this session you will hear how AWS customers build powerful, flexible, secure, and future-proof geospatial platforms. These systems deliver more business value from location-based data while minimising both compute costs and management overhead.
