What is Geo-Construction?
Thursday, July 29, 2021
Geospatial construction, or "geo-construction", uses data from a wide range of focal points, such as location, population and environment, to influence the design and construction of any infrastructure in order to save, time, money and reduce waste.
GIS (Geographic Information Systems) improve the effectiveness of construction planning and design by integrating location information into a single environment. Their ability to store Big Data is used to maintain construction data in digital format, providing a wide range of information to the industry with a quick retrieval mechanism and manipulation capability, as well as calculating construction ratios and estimating costs.

There are different types of models that help improve construction efficiency such as:
Automated schedule tracking models
Monitoring the assembly process of prefabricated buildings, integrating GPS and GIS technologies to obtain real-time information and manage loads/vehicles arriving by road to construction sites, in order to reduce waste generation.
Cost estimation models
Dynamically transmits information for material planning, identifying the right place to store building materials.

Retail: Benefits of Data Monetization
More and more retail organizations are monetizing their data to increase revenue, boost productivity and optimize costs, enabling effective leveraging of assets, technology tools and external information to generate better results.
In the retail sector,
is about making better informed decisions, increasing revenue and reducing costs from access to different types of stored, categorized and accessible data.
New Trends in Predictive Modeling and AI in Construction
Many decision makers in the construction industry don't know what to do with the vast amount of data they have available, as they don't have the right tools to analyze it in a way that will have a meaningful impact on their projects.
Predictive modeling, Big Data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence unlock the ability to leverage the data coming from projects to organize and interpret it and thereby discover patterns more quickly. These tools reduce problems, lower costs and mitigate the risk of different processes in construction projects by making the work more predictable and efficient.
Benefits of Geolocation and Big Data in the Agricultural Sector
Geolocation systems and Big Data turn data into information that farmers and land managers can use to make more informed and timely decisions to increase productivity.
Sensors located in fields, tractors and on satellites high above farms are constantly collecting data.
Industrial Location and Big Data
Location choice has become a critical point in the success or failure of any industry, as it has a great impact on the company's overall risk, as well as on transportation, logistics, salaries, rents and raw materials costs, among others.
Where to locate industrial facilities is one of the most important strategic decisions that companies must make. Identifying the optimal location is a spatial problem that requires the comparison of attributes of different locations that have the best combination of the desired variables and qualities.
