  • Sensing our Place with the Internet of Things


    April 11th, 2016

    We are increasingly becoming a more connected society; we strap on IoT wearables to our wrists, carry smart phones that connect to each other, and have connected thermostats, lights, fridges, and security systems in our homes. Beyond the efficiencies we find in our personal lives with connected devices, IoT sensors are providing real results business, particularly with real-time geographical data analysis. Geography is quickly becoming a critical component in how our IoT devices collect and store data. Information streams now offer analysts the ability to contextualize data and perform real-world analysis on the information coming in from the variety of IoT devices. The combination of location and device-collected data has huge potential for improving citizen’s lives and easing the day-to-day work across various public sector organizations.
