Geospatial Information and Technology

Geospatial Information and Technology

Geospatial is a term widely used to describe the combination of spatial software and analytical methods with terrestrial or geographic datasets. The term is often used in conjunction with geographic information systems and geomatics, never separately.

Geospatial Information and Technology is GIS ??? - Geographic Information Science and Technology

Geospatial Technology, commonly known as geomatics, refers to technology used for visualization, measurement, and analysis of features or phenomena that occur on the earth. This terminology has become common in the United States, and is synonymous with Spatial Information Technology.

Geospatial technology includes three different technologies that are all related to mapping features on the surface of the earth. These three technology systems are GPS (global positioning systems), GIS (geographical information systems), and RS (remote sensing).

According to the background of Map World Forum 2009,
Since the 1960s, Geospatial Information or Geospatial Technology has undergone a sea change, that is, from a specialized tool of analyses to a multi-purpose tool capable of not just analysis but also storage, management and visualization of data.

The integration of Geospatial Information and Technology (GIT) with a powerful medium like Internet has not only changed the way we analyse geographical information but also the way we live and function. Today, Geospatial Information and Technology (GIT) has spread its wings far and wide. Its applications range from defence, management of natural resources, utilities and infrastructure management, to emergency planning and relief operations, governance, urban development etc.Hence, keeping the popularity of GIT for multifarious applications in perspective, one can safely say that Geospatial Information and Technology (GIT) will not only power the businesses of tomorrow but will also become a formidable driving force for the global economy in the coming decades.

Lesson learned from India, in India Geospatial or Earth Sciences is an important, we can see that in India there is Minister of Science & Technology and Earth Sciences
Government of India.

Di Indonesia ??? Adakah Kementrian IPTEK dan Ilmu Kebumian??
Di Indonesia...ILmu Kebumian dengan dunia geospasialnya berada dalam naungan RISTEK..

"Perkembangan yang pesat dari teknologi informasi dan komunikasi telah memberikan pengaruh pada dunia geospatial. Dulu teknologi geospatial hanya dikenal pada dunia pemetaan, namun sekarang telah menjadi faktor yang sangat penting di dunia pemerintah dan juga berbagai bidang industri di bidang transportasi, perbankan, perumahan, perkebunan dan lainnya. Teknologi ini diperlukan untuk inventarisasi dan manajemen sumber daya alam sehingga menjadi sistem informasi kebencanaan yang dirasakan kebutuhannya seiring dengan banyak terjadi bencana alam di Indonesia."

Indonesia semakin sadar akan arti pentingnya geografi...akan makna data spasial-geospasial informasi dan teknologi telah membantu dalam penanganan bencana alam.

Bencana alam tsunami di Aceh,,,membangkitkan para geografiwan untuk turut serta dalam penanggulangan bencana tersebut.

Muncullah Aceh Geospatial Data Center...
"Aceh Geospatial Data Center (AGDC) merupakan pusat penyedia data dan pelayanan informasi geospasial / kebumian / keruangan Provinsi Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam. Di portal internet ini kita dapat mencari data geospasial, citra satelit, peta interaktif, video, dokumen, dan data terkait lainnya."

AGDC mendukung pemanfaatan dan sharing data/informasi spasial antar berbagai institusi baik pemerintah, swasta, Lembaga Swadaya Masyarakat dari dalam maupun luar negeri yang turut serta dalam proses pembangunan di Provinsi Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam.

Gempa Bumi di Jogja dan Jawa Tengah..semakin membangkitkan semangat spasial..memaknai ilmu kebumian dan pendalaman mengenai arti geografi...

Seperti apakah perkembangan Geospatial Information and Technology di Indonesia ???

Banyak lembaga pemerintah yang berkaitan dengan geospatial, lembaga non-pemerintah/LSM/NGO lokal maupun internasional yang berada di Indonesia, pihak2 swasta...bergerak di bidang Geographic Information Science and Technology....

Tapi sejauh mana koordinasi diantara mereka ???
Sejauh mana peran serta kita??
