Business intelligence (BI) is the set of techniques and tools for the transformation of raw data into meaningful and useful information for business analysis purposes.

Business intelligence

BI technologies are capable of handling large amounts of unstructured data to help identify, develop and otherwise create new strategic business opportunities. The goal of BI is to allow for the easy interpretation of these large volumes of data. Identifying new opportunities and implementing an effective strategy based on insights can provide businesses with a competitive market advantage and long-term stability.[1] BI technologies provide historical, current and predictive views of business operations.

Thinking spatially is a part of everyday living.It is also endemic to all manner of sciences, from astronomy to zoology, and at all scales from the nanoscale to the universe scale.But just what do we know about spatial thinking?

Thinking Spatially

Ok.So now that we realize how widespread spatial thinking really is, let's learn a little more about it.Spatial thinking includes the following: Translating from one dimension to another (as in creating 2-D maps from 3-D environments). Realizing distance properties (such as adjacency, proximity, similarity, nearest neighbor, crow-fly distance, or "over-the-road" distance). Comprehending orientation and direction (e.g., as in using global references such as North, South, East, and West, angular bearings, or clock-face directions-as in "the statue is at two o'clock from you"). Using frames of reference (such as latitude and longitude or local street numbering systems). Back to School with Geo-Literacy. "Geo Learning" by Daniel C.

Edelson,Vice President for Education, National Geographic Society. Spatial Thinking in the Geosciences. Spatial thinking is thinking that finds meaning in the shape, size, orientation, location, direction or trajectory, of objects, processes or phenomena, or the relative positions in space of multiple objects, processes or phenomena.

Spatial Thinking in the Geosciences

Spatial thinking uses the properties of space as a vehicle for structuring problems, for finding answers, and for expressing solutions (National Research Council, 2006). Geoscience demands extensive spatial thinking from learners and practitioners (National Research Council, 2006; Kastens & Ishikawa, 2006).

With a few clicks of the mouse, MapWizard® automatic mapping technology helps you create color and pattern maps, dot-density maps, scaled-symbol maps, and maps with integrated pie or bar charts. You can customize the colors, styles, and labels in your map. Once you understand the patterns hidden in the numbers, share your maps to tell your stories. Copy them to reports and slideshow presentations, save them to JPEG, PNG or HTML for use on websites, or print them out as handouts or wall-size posters. MapInfo.com.

What is Problem Solving? - Problem Solving Skills from MindTools.com

Problems are at the center of what many people do at work every day. Whether you're solving a problem for a client (internal or external), supporting those who are solving problems, or discovering new problems to solve, the problems you face can be large or small, simple or complex, and easy or difficult. A fundamental part of every manager's role is finding ways to solve them. There are four basic steps in solving a problem: Defining the problem.

Steps 2 to 4 of this process are covered in depth in other areas of Mind Tools. The Learner's Guide to Geospatial Analysis. Printer-friendly version (Modified 23 Jul 2010) A number of "ingredients" (concepts) have been used in the development of the Structured Geospatial Analysis Method "stew.

ArcGIS Desktop. Geocoding is the process of transforming a description of a location—such as a pair of coordinates, an address, or a name of a place—to a location on the earth's surface.

ArcGIS Desktop

You can geocode by entering one location description at a time or by providing many of them at once in a table. The resulting locations are output as geographic features with attributes, which can be used for mapping or spatial analysis. You can quickly find various kinds of locations through geocoding. The types of locations that you can search for include points of interest or names from a gazetteer, like mountains, bridges, and stores; coordinates based on latitude and longitude or other reference systems, such as the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) or the U.S.

Edelson, Vice President for Education, National Geographic Society I began the winding path that has become a career, as a researcher in artificial intelligence. I was drawn to artificial intelligence by one of its central tenets: you can understand how the human mind works by trying to reproduce its behaviors in the form of a computer program.
