Geospatial Map Analytics in Mainframe
The word geospatial is used to indicate the data that has a geographic component to it. This means that the
records in a data-set have locational information tied to them such as geographic data in the form of coordinates and city.
This system can open up a lot of opportunities in analytic and geospatial intelligence. Locations can be added and mapped on
the screen based on the coordinates and as a future scope maps subsystem can be build up in mainframes for analytics and
data mapping on geographical space. Geo-spacial Map Analytic System can be implemented in mainframes using Basic
Mapping Support and COBOL-CICS application programming. The concept of geospatial map analytic system is a
revolutionary innovation and has been implemented by various industries to provide better services and interactive interface
to the customer.
