Data is worthless until it has had some level of analysis placed against it. For an organisation, data has historically been used to understand where it has been, where it is now and where it will be going in the future. This uses the time dimension of data – but there is a lot more that should be considered.
The place dimension can add immense power to data analysis – particularly when combined with other contextual data. This short paper takes a look at the possibilities of using multi-dimensional data.
