Abstract: Digital transformation is no longer a mirage that evades organizations. Many companies have touted to have achieved transformation driven by the digital disruptions stemming from big data, advanced analytics and the internet of things. Companies are now inundated with data and different forms of analytics that they should implement to maximize business value. While many see geospatial analytics as the representation of data in a map, it actually involves a deeper integration of location data with businesses strategies and processes. Geospatial analytics has become a key element in gaining quick benefits from the implementation of organizational analytical infrastructure.

Case examples described in this study presents evidence for the adoption of geospatial analytics in any business area or industry to help with the analytical transformation of an organization.
