Hierarchical Grid Systems & How They Implement Better Location Data Analysis
As part of Spectus’ platform toolkit, analysts are granted access to the Tiling Tool, also known as spatial indexing. Spatial indexing is mainly used to improve the performance of geospatial analyses making computations faster. Simply stated, this equips analysts and data science teams with a visual tool to isolate areas and analyze data sets on a map. Grid systems are critical to analyzing large spatial data sets, as they effectively partition areas of the Earth into identifiable grid cells. Using various industry-standard grid methodologies, analysis of one or many data sources can be more precisely targeted and more easily normalized.
