The digital age is seeing a renewal of the world “map”
from a canvas sheet into an elaborate information system.
A geospatial revolution is happening with the new learning that all data digital is but an aspect of earth-based objects and processes. People and organizations interested in location-based or geospatial answers, information, decisions, and tools are increasing by the day, by the hour. We are among the flag bearers of this shift. We strive to enhance geospatial awareness with every solution we implement.
Map, in the simplest sense, is a collage of mathematical representations of earth features arranged as per their ground locations. Map, for the most part, has been a sheet of paper, canvas, or cloth. In the digital age, however, map took to electronic display.
The electronic display caused a renewal of the word “map” – from a two-dimensional sheet into an elaborate multidimensional information system, which is frequently referred to as GIS. What these multidimensional information systems deal with are technically space/time aspects of reality in the context of the earth, also referred to as GEOSPATIAL. However, geospatial is just not another term for the more popular GIS.
Geospatial is a new interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary science - a combination of geodesy, surveying, philosophy, theoretical physics, biophysics, human ecology, history, geography, cartography, mathematics, computer science, engineering, and information technology, in addition to a variety of application areas, their domain models and spatial analysis concepts, tools, algorithms (commonly available as pieces of commercial software), and more. Mapsol adopts this term in its holistic sense univocal for the novice or the expert.
