Geospatial information (GI) identifies the geographic location of natural and built objects. When combined with other forms of data, it can provide extremely valuable information for a myriad of business, government, university or consumer applications.

For this reason, the analysis of Geospatial data has the power to effectively inform decision making and policy development related to a wide range of issues from health services and natural resources to emergency response and disease surveillance.
