Download to read offline

Although GPS developments started in 1967, it’s only in the early 70’s that NASA launched its first Earth Observation satellite. Contemporary technologies like satellite navigation and remote sensing are key in our daily life. Still, we ain’t seen nothing yet. Explore the potential of these technologies in your future products or services, and find a way to get things done.

  6. 6. 5.3 Geospatial technologies: the evolution and impact on our daily life 6 LET’S ROLL BACK A BIT… “Geospatial technology is a field of information technology that focuses on the geographical, temporal, and spatial context of data.” This means that the records in a dataset have locational information tied to them such as geographic data in the form of coordinates or addresses. GPS/GNSS data and remote sensing imagery fed into a Geographical Information System (GIS), are all examples of geospatial technology.

In the power grid, you have to be able to identify what the voltage and the current are at specific, highly precise points in time. Phase measurement units (PMUs) are devices that are aligned with the atomic clocks used in GPS.
