What was once primarily hot-spot mapping has evolved to include high-powered predictive crime analysis. Geography-based data can also be used by fire departments for route mapping, hazardous-materials location awareness, and event planning. Advances in image capture and 3D modeling can help cities plan for sea level rise, and other elements of climate change such as areas likely to flood during large storms or unusual tides.
Imagine knowing the precise location of every pipe, joint, and valve in your system and being able to find leaks and replace parts with minimal digging and disruption.
Imagine knowing the location of every tree in your parks, the last time each was trimmed, and the cost in case of disease or storm damage.
