Geo-Enabling Retail and Property (with emergent location solutions)
Steven Eglinton, GeoEnable

First presented at The SLA Forum 2013

In this presentation I will examine how Location Analytics, as a technology solution and a term, is very rapidly becoming a mainstream concept in IT and GIS.

With examples, what one thought of as specialised tools, such as GIS, are now being ‘democratised’ and embedded in easy-to-use business processes and workflows.

With examples of how this could benefit the property and retail sector, I will examine the main and most important trends in, ‘Geospatial’ and Location Analytics that affect anyone involved in spatial analysis or GIS. These trends really are ‘game changers’ compared with the last 35 years of GIS and Location Technologies and need to be understood to leverage the potential benefits.

1. Cloud GIS – off-premise hosted mapping and location analytics tools. This can dramatically reduce costs and complexity of implementation.

2. ‘Big Data’ – analysing and visualising vast quantities of near real-time data
Location Analytics – the use of, what would have been called GIS technologies, embedded in systems for NON-specialist users.

3. Dynamic (Real-time) Mapping

4. Open Data – Open data from the UK and US for use in business context. This includes postcode data, which is now free to use

5. Mobility – Real-time maps in people’s pockets! with the ability to edit and capture new data

6. Embedding Location – In Processes and integration of Location in enterprise solutions – esp for Asset Management / ERP

7. Location for all – Location Analytics is becoming part of peoples’ jobs as part of a workflow. Typically non-specialist users are now leveraging ‘GIS-like’ technologies without even knowing.

Transcript of "Geo-Enabling Retail and Property"

  1. 1. Geo-Enabling Retail & Property The Society for Location Analysis (SLA) Forum 2013 18th Oct 2013 - London, UK Steven Eglinton FBCart.S, MBCS, MIoD Director, GeoEnable Council Member/Director, Association for Geographic Information (AGI)
  2. 2. We know and love traditional GIS … but it is a ‘Black Box’ to most people Dissolve GeoProcesses Shapefiles Raster Polygons Link-node models Models Self-intersecting Polygons Union GeoCoding Spatial Join Projections GIS Dangling segments Merge Points Dynamic segmentation Buffering Vector Joins and Links Vertices Polylines Snapping ‘Plotting’ data Doughnut Polygon?
  3. 3. Does your existing GIS and IT really fulfil your business needs? Vs Multi-purpose tool Specialised tools Technology is simply a tool, an enabler
  4. 4. Things are changing - fast  Geographic Information Systems (GIS)  Building Information Modelling (BIM)  Location Intelligence / Location Analytics  Embedded and integrated Mapping Solutions  Mobile as standard Web / Cloud GIS  Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)  Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)  Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) Enabling: Location information and solutions for all
  5. 5. But, are we clear on why?  … and how it all works together? At GeoEnable, we see Geo-Enablement as a whole process
  6. 6. Real-life example - King’s Cross "The King's Cross project is the largest area of urban redevelopment in Europe and it will include the largest new street in London since Kingsway in 1904; the largest public square since Trafalgar Square in 1845.” Richard Godwin Evening Standard Magazine  An extraordinary part of London is taking shape  50 new buildings, 2 000 new homes, 20 new streets, 10 new public squares, 67 acres (27 ha) , 45 000 people who live, work and study in the area  Read more: http://www.kingscross.co.uk/
  7. 7. 7 Why does King’s Cross need Web GIS?  Web GIS is easier to deploy and maintain than ‘traditional GIS’  Web GIS is less expensive than a stack of ‘traditional GIS’ Web GIS enables:  Communication & Collaboration on projects  Context to developments, projects and assets (land, buildings, infrastructure)  Stakeholder, contractor and public engagement  Time savings for finding, re-using and sharing of data (surveys, CAD, GIS)  Visualisation and mapping of non-spatial information  Reduction of duplication of effort for data workflows  Mobile mapping – direct from The Cloud
  8. 8. King’s Cross
  9. 9. King’s Cross
  10. 10. King’s Cross
  11. 11. King’s Cross
  12. 12. Examples of current trends  Cloud GIS  ‘Big Data’  Location Analytics  Dynamic (Real-time) Mapping  Open Data  Mobility  Embedding Location  Location for all
  13. 13. Cloud GIS  Also known as hosted Web GIS  Cloud GIS – off-premise hosted mapping and location analytics tools. This can dramatically reduce costs and complexity of implementation  What does that mean?  What does it look like in practice? >>>>
  14. 14. An Integrated Geospatial Platform Project Management Documents Photo Library Links to other systems Read-write in the field Specialist GIS Read-only in the office ArcGIS Online Hosted Geo-Data and Web GIS Read-write in the office Desktop GIS Must be process-driven
  15. 15. Big Data  ‘Big Data’ – analysing and visualising vast quantities of near real-time data  Structured or unstructured  Large volumes (define large)  Frequency change  Would include social media – Tweets etc  We have the capability to handle this already  GeoEnrichment - mapping, infographics, reports, and data enrichment  Real value is with dashboards style analytics
  16. 16. Location Analytics  Location Analytics – the use of, what would have been called GIS technologies, embedded in systems for NON-specialist users  Synonyms: Geospatial BI and Location Intelligence Images © Esri
  17. 17. Location Analytics – Embedding Location  Think of it not as GIS, but map-enabling existing systems Inside your existing business systems:  MS Office  IBM Cognos  SharePoint  Dynamics CRM  MicroStrategy  SAP  Uses data from any databases with location references
  18. 18. Real-time Mapping  Dynamic (Real-time) Mapping  See changes as they happen  Ensure C-Level and Senior Managers have a real, real-time view of progress (or lack of progress)  How do you manage this, who can / can not see what?  Set-up real-time alerts Images © Esri
  19. 19. Open Data  Open Data – Open data from the UK and US for use in business context. This includes postcode data, which is now free to use  But, what’s your plan to use it? Where are the benefits for YOU?
  20. 20. Embedding Location in Processes  Embedding Location – Integration of Location in enterprise solutions – esp for Asset Management / ERP  First we need to embed an Information Culture  Embed Business Processes to enable the technology  Business Process Change  Standards and other Information Governance  Consider Lead and Six Sigma (we provide this also!)
  21. 21. Information Management (IM) for GIS 1 Information Management activity must lead GIS activity 2 All information (data) must have owners & custodians 3 Information needed to inform business decisions 4 Information forms the cornerstone for collaboration 5 Information needs to be seen as an asset 6 ‘Single Source of Truth’
  22. 22. From Geo-Centric to Geo-Enabled • From a focus on Geospatial Technologies & Tools • To embedding Geospatial Information in Business Processes Think Spatially Think Integration GIS 1 3 CAD CAD GIS Geo-Centric 2 BIM Geo Web Geo-Enabled
  23. 23. Location for All  Location for all – Location Analytics is becoming part of peoples’ jobs as part of a workflow. Typically non-specialist users are now leveraging ‘GIS-like’ technologies without even knowing.
  24. 24. We needed people to ‘Think Information’, Not Just Maps! GIS Products Plans and Maps Asset Management Reports Business Plan Bidding Material
  25. 25. Example Process - Project Progress CAD Manager ‘Shapes’ GIS Manager Deep Thought Master Plan Cost Plan (MPCP): • Buildings • Infrastructure King's Cross Project and Cost Reporting Database OK Create & Validate Whole Business MANAGE & SHARE GIS GIS Fail Validate & Check
