Government: Study Changes to Terrain
Those who plan public infrastructure or environmental policy study how weather affects a place over time. The US Military needs to understand how hills, roads, and rivers will impact troop movements. Legacy BI and GIS solutions may draw maps for those scenarios, but they were designed before geolocation data was Big. They can’t cross-filter geo charts with time-series data at scale.
MapD’s extreme analytics platform is a new type of “time machine” for researchers and planners who need to display data on a map, with the ability to quickly filter by different time periods. With MapD, researchers can quickly see how decades of floods, wildfires, or wars have moved across the land and affected a place of interest.
