  • 17. How innovation is led - KISS Modular – Scalable - Interoperable 1. Solve “user’s pains”. Solutions that easily evolve, integrate, interoperate and escalate using One base software/HW architecture for all apps - airborne, to ground, to mobile/handheld. 2. Correct, Robust & Reliable -performs consistently all the time. 3. Highest quality system solution (software, hardware); output easily ingestible by any 3rd party processing software. More for less digital paradigm. 4. Highest collection capacity & resolution – best in class. 5. Best value –economical, cost of ownership- apples to apples. 6. Automated, easy to use - minimal manual intervention workflow. UVS-ready. 7. Speed - fastest in class collection, processing and automated workflow. 8. Easy to deploy, maintain and upgrade software and hardware. Development follows object oriented (OO) paradigm and rigorous software engineering practices. 9. Innovate - do it right, right now; do not kludge or reinvent the wheel. Hustle with highest sense of urgency. 10. "Smartest" – clever designs and implementations, OO-P, reusable components (“Out of the box thinking”). © Armando Guevara – On the Spatial Enabling of Information 17

  • 22. “Space… the final frontier…” • • • • • • • • • • Spatial is everything… it is universal… it is infinite… Everything happens somewhere… The container and contained theory…. Geospatial is everything locatable on the surface of the earth… Location is n-dimensional… it is macro… it is micro… Location is defined by geometry… All things are locatable in some space and therefore have relations… Relations are defined by topology… if location changes the relation may change… Gravity is about the interaction between the location of things… The Science of Where… Reality… Virtual Reality…Augmented Reality… “What is reality? it is all a mere illusion… a persistent one, mind you…” (Einstein) © Armando Guevara – On the Spatial Enabling of Information 22

  • 41. GIS – Geography “The Science of Where” • It all happens somewhere. • The n-dimensional spatial domain is a topologically and geometrically integrating and convergent domain. The “ultimate container”. Say what!? • Where you are affects where you are… and where you will be: law of gravity. © Armando Guevara – On the Spatial Enabling of Information 41
  • 42. gIs - I for Imagination “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.
