Digital Transformation: Possibilities for a Geo-Enabled Campus
MetadataShow full item record
A Geo-enabled Campus is a campus where everyone is empowered with access to geospatial tools, data, and technologies, embracing all aspects of a campus’ teaching, research, and administration. There are a lot of possibilities to achieve a Geo-enabled campus, given the massive digital transformation we are experiencing. Digital transformation means using technology to fundamentally change what we do, and today there are many technology trends which influence our actions. Some trends, like Drones and AI, are enablers of major transformation because the power of disruption is in the hands of the user/implementer. Others like Smart Cities and Autonomous Vehicles will have impacts on us that are beyond the control of any one person, organization or society. These trends are powerful, analytics driven, and location aware. These trends have influenced the development of geospatial technology and have increased the potential for truly geoenabling a campus in many ways, from curriculum and learning, to research, to campus operations.
