Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In Asia, the use of geospatial technologies is developing rapidly. Understanding and analysing geospatial properties and phenomena and choosing and utilizing the associated (big) data is therefore of utmost importance to support land managers and spatial planners on the one hand, and administrative and regulatory agencies (such as land and spatial planning ministries, cadastres and land registers, regional and local governments, mobility, transport and infrastructure agencies) on the other hand. This chapter classifies the different types and shows how and where these technologies are currently in use. It also demonstrates the trends of certain technologies, the potentials of upcoming technologies and first signs of implementation and incorporation within professional settings.
