Geospatial is a term widely used to describe the combination of spatial software and analytical methods with terrestrial or geographic datasets. The term is often used as a conjunction with geographic information systems and geomatics.    (2QZB)

The term "geospatial" is an adjective that original meaning was: "of or relating to the relative position of things on the earth's surface." (    (2QZC)

The term geospatial has been further defined as:" pertaining to the geographic location and characteristics of natural or constructed features and boundaries on, above, or below the earth's surface; esp. referring to data that is geographic and spatial in nature." (Source    (2QZD)

As part of the SOCoP/InteropProject the term is used in a broad sense applying to the use of geo-concepts by geoscientists who work with spatial data at various levels of granularity of space and time (local, regional, national, global) to understand the nature of the Earth and its environs.    (2QZE)
