Geospatial Big Data processing, OGC standards and Cloud Computing intersection and resulting opportunities

Geospatial Big Data processing, OGC standards and Cloud Computing intersection and resulting opportunities

General, GeoIT, Opensource, Software
These are three technological concepts that have emerged to organically play nice together and tremendously tilt the landscape of spatial data handling from storage, processing and consumption. This intersection will definitely reinvent how we use geo-information in the various verticals. There is strong emergence of cloud geospatial processing algorithms implemented on cloud platforms like Geobrain and Terradue a cloud platform offering Data-as-a-service, Processing APIs for Earth observation data. Terradue has provided a collection of open source tools through their Github repos. Cloud computing has definitely had a significant impact on computer science and other domains. And the Geospatial industry has definitely warmed up to this new entrance with massive investments in developm
