There has been a lot of changes in the geospatial industry over the last 5 years or so. This includes new technologies, the advancement and acceptance of analytic software that makes elevation data more practical and valuable to a broader group of people, improvements to digital elevation models (DEM) processing software, and the acceptance of location-based intelligence software. One of the most exciting trends is the view by national and international leadership that a geospatial infrastructure is key to achieving national and even global priorities.
