Peter Batty poses an interesting question:

If you could do geospatial analysis 50 to 100 times faster than you can today, what compelling new things would this enable you to do? And yes, I mean 50 to 100 times faster, not 50 to 100 percent faster!

Just think about that for a minute, it blows one’s mind. I’m pretty sure someone reading this blog might have a good case study for Peter (below Peter says this isn’t hypothetical so if you’ve got a great need for such processing, email him your needs).

Wouldn’t it be better to be the Road Runner instead of being Wile E. Coyote when running spatial analysis?
