Geospatial Data Exploration on AWS

Ankita Gavali, Amazon Web Services
Unprecedented surge in space exploration interests and the advancement of technology in mission control, satellite manufacturing and launch systems has made geospatial data easily accessible. Many customers see the need for geospatial analytics in different applications like precision agriculture, carbon footprint monitoring, land use, container vessel monitoring etc. Geospatial data, however, has unique requirements around storage and analysis. In this session, we will take a look at how AWS storage services can be used to build highly scalable and resilient datalakes to store, process and analyze your geospatial data. We will explore services like Amazon S3, Amazon Sagemaker, Amazon Athena, AWS Glue etc. that form the basis of AWS datalake architecture and how these services accelerate the delivery of data lakes, shortening the deployment time to production from several months to a few weeks.

As AWS Solutions Architect, Ankita works with customers across Benelux. She is passionate about working backwards from customer needs and helping them solve real business problems with the power of the AWS platform.
