Increasingly, the public sector is utilizing the Internet of Things (IoT) as a tool to deliver value to citizens, reduce costs, and increase the speed of service delivery. IoT can consist of fleet locations, infrastructure sensors, or any other wireless sensor data source.
The key for all IoT is the ability to understand the data coming in and make informed decisions. This requires the data to be stored, sorted, and visualized on a collaborative map. Now an informed decision can be made based on accurate data, in real time.
Google Maps API is the best-in-class mapping platform to display this data. The points of interest available on Google Maps Platform create context for IoT sensor data, taking the data off a spreadsheet and transforming it within the real-world context.
- IoT sensor data is increasing growth in the public sector
- IoT sensor data needs to have real-world context to be useful
- Google Maps API points of interest allow for this increased insight
