The Use of Geospatial Analysis on Industrial Competitiveness

The Use of Geospatial Analysis on Industrial Competitiveness

by Eirinne Carenina de Poere

In the last decade, geospatial analysis using big data is a major technology that revolutionizes the industry at large. Widely analysis using big data began to be used after several institutions and businesses produced very large volumes of data in decades, such as government agencies, private companies such as Google, the Meteorology Department which obtained satellite imagery and also the logistics industry that worked using geospatial data.

The growth of the world economy in recent years has driven an increase in the demand for geospatial applications in various fields. The geospatial industry has emerged as a novelty in the information services sector. Various companies and institutions have appeared to be involved in the business for technology development and service provision. Thus, knowledge and understanding of the existing geospatial industry that grows in Indonesia is needed as a baseline, and then projected future growth in a realistic manner referring to the latest technological developments in certain countries as benchmarking.

Industrial development in Indonesia will be more stringent. With the development of geospatial technology, it will increasingly help humans to understand the many data streams that exist today. Thus, in this fast-paced information age, big data spatial technology and assisted intelligence (AI) are indispensable for industrial development. The era of IoT, globalization and economic liberalization has had a very significant impact, including increasingly fierce competition in the industrial sector. High competitiveness of the industrial sector can be achieved if the industrial sector has a strong structure, an increase in added value and productivity along the production value chain, as well as support from all productive resources owned. With the many and varied regional comparative advantages, it is theoretically possible to build several industrial growth centers in several locations in certain regions. From the government’s side, the policy so far to cover the industrial sector continues to increase, by providing clarity on the direction of industrial development, facilitating licensing and various other incentives to increase the development of the industrial sector.
