What is Opengeospatial.org? You better find out!

Opengeospatial.org Making Location Count.

You say you have never heard of it. Don’t think it has any relevancy to commercial real estate? Let me give you a little hint. Data + Location = Commercial Real Estate.

Everything is essentially a database of some kind. Commercial Real Estate’s database is now flat and not connected. That will change….forever.

Take a look at just this little part called Built Environment & 3D.

Hang on to your ass. It’s going to be a fun ride!

    oh goodness – that is pretty fantastic – amazing possibilities

  • Duke, this is what I’m talking about!

  • Really this is GIS taken to the next step. (I have been doing GIS in Commercial Real Estate for 12 years) If you have someone who knows GIS and can bring together databases (spatial and tabular) across multiple sources government, private and self-created you get a better picture of your world. Along with your future clients and transactions, Opengeospatial or not. Commercial Real Estate is location driven. If you can’t leverage multiple datasets that on the surface have no value to your transaction you are asking the wrong questions and you are falling behind your competition.

    • Matt,
