Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT connects billions of sensors from around the world this enables the exchange of information between them. This realtime data comes from differetn physical devices such as smartphones, laptops, cars, smart home appliances, wearable devices etc. At Map & Allied, we’ve identified and partnered with IoT providers and enterprise in the automotive, transport, real estate, retail, government to enable them tap into the business value of connected devices.
As a GIS and Mapping company the application of IoT concept combined with GIS relates to the use of several devices connected to a server in order to obtain a lot of geographic information to be user to feed the information system. A smartphone, using a GPS software, provides several information to a central server about your localization, weather conditions, vehicles traffic, shopping facilities, and a lot of other information that may be provided by other user of the same network you’re connected, helping you to find what you need. In Summary IoTs help with;Real-Time Spatial Analytics, Real Time Location Positioning, Big Data Analytics

Real-Time Positioning

Think of traffic analytics and prediction! IoT is a coponet of mobile sensors, stationery meters or social media feeds. Connected vehicles, farmers’ soil moisture motiring feed, Electricity meters. These stream layers exist in clouds such as Azure, Amazon, or Cisco. The, we connect to the feeds forreal-time analytics and positions. The ability to monitor and push such events over IoT provides solutions such as traffic analytics, smart parking, geofencing etc.
