A web mapping service (WMS) consists of geospatial data hosted on a GIS server with standards set by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).
Geocaching is a treasure hunt style game using a GPS receiver. Geocaches are meaningful places that someone hand-picked to become a hiding spot.
Geometric networks in GIS enable connectivity between lines on a map, supporting network analysis by establishing a linear flow and routing.
Full motion video ties your videos with maps. As you play a video, it doesn’t just show a moving point. It shows the whole video footprint on the map.
Geostatistics is the study of statistics with a focus on finding patterns of geographic phenomena using variograms, kriging and validation.
Linear referencing systems (LRS) store relative positions on an existing line feature with m-values for point/line events and linear analysis.
Huff Gravity Model uses store size and distance along with census tract population to understand the probability that consumers will patron retail stores.
When you take a photo with your GPS on, it stores its physical location where the photo was taken. Geotagging assigns coordinates to photos.
Geocoding takes an address, then translates it to a location on a map. It changes an address to lat long coordinates (latitude and longitude).
Spatial regression is used to model spatial relationships. Regression models investigate what variables explain their location.
