What is Geo-Construction?

Geospatial construction, or "geo-construction", uses data from a wide range of focal points, such as location, population and environment, to influence the design and construction of any infrastructure in order to save, time, money and reduce waste.

Thursday, July 29, 2021

GIS (Geographic Information Systems) improve the effectiveness of construction planning and design by integrating location information into a single environment. Their ability to store Big Data is used to maintain construction data in digital format, providing a wide range of information to the industry with a quick retrieval mechanism and manipulation capability, as well as calculating construction ratios and estimating costs.

There are different types of models that help improve construction efficiency such as:

Automated schedule tracking models

Monitoring the assembly process of prefabricated buildings, integrating GPS and GIS technologies to obtain real-time information and manage loads/vehicles arriving by road to construction sites, in order to reduce waste generation.

Cost estimation models

Dynamically transmits information for material planning, identifying the right place to store building materials.

Building materials trading models

Supports the search and purchase of products from different suppliers through an online system, providing an ideal solution for managing transportation costs and market analysis in all electronic trading activities.

Route selection model

Avoid existing obstacles on a road reducing the risk of damaging existing utilities, minimizing the cost required during construction.

Construction process model

Plans and improves the performance of construction sites.

In general, GIS are not associated with this industry, so at PREDIK Data Driven we support and educate construction companies on the use of these technologies.

Retail: Benefits of Data Monetization

September 2021

More and more retail organizations are monetizing their data to increase revenue, boost productivity and optimize costs, enabling effective leveraging of assets, technology tools and external information to generate better results.

In the retail sector, data monetization is about making better informed decisions, increasing revenue and reducing costs from access to different types of stored, categorized and accessible data.

New Trends in Predictive Modeling and AI in Construction

August 2021

Many decision makers in the construction industry don't know what to do with the vast amount of data they have available, as they don't have the right tools to analyze it in a way that will have a meaningful impact on their projects.

Predictive modeling, Big Data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence unlock the ability to leverage the data coming from projects to organize and interpret it and thereby discover patterns more quickly. These tools reduce problems, lower costs and mitigate the risk of different processes in construction projects by making the work more predictable and efficient.

Benefits of Geolocation and Big Data in the Agricultural Sector

August 2021

Geolocation systems and Big Data turn data into information that farmers and land managers can use to make more informed and timely decisions to increase productivity.

Sensors located in fields, tractors and on satellites high above farms are constantly collecting data.

Geolocation systems and Big Data are able to convert this data into information that agricultural companies can use to make more informed and timely decisions, increasing productivity, allowing to collect information on soil and plant needs to apply treatments that increase agricultural production, managing costly resources such as fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

Industrial Location and Big Data

July 2021

Location choice has become a critical point in the success or failure of any industry, as it has a great impact on the company's overall risk, as well as on transportation, logistics, salaries, rents and raw materials costs, among others.

Where to locate industrial facilities is one of the most important strategic decisions that companies must make.
