Spatial Data Infrastructure and Human Sensor Web

Two cases from the growing field of geo-information management, representing two different paradigms, are discussed: Spatial Data Infrastructure and Human Sensor Web.

The Spatial Data Infrastructure case originated in the early Nineties and was conceived to be developed within the public sector. The second, Human Sensor Web, at quite early stages of development, is informed by recent prominence of user generated content and mobile devices on the global scale.

A practice lens is adopted to frame these two examples of global Information systems. This stance helps in appreciating the unpredictability of innovation, therefore the necessity to situate management view close to where the action is.

As these large systems cut across levels and countries, maintaining both overview and sensitivity for details is difficult.


This seminar will take place at 5:00pm, Feb 15, in room N204 at the UCD Smurfit Graduate School of Business, Blackrock, University College Dublin.
