Matt Ball — "While sustainability issues are a global problem, they can be better addressed and understood when parsed by scale. By taking a global, regional and local look at the problems, it’s easiest to assign responsibilities. And, the way that the issues of sustainability are assessed are distinctly different at these three different scales."
Matt Ball — "Focusing entirely on global change has exposed me to a number of dire and troubling indicators that point to a profoundly human-altered planet. It’s also allowed me to see encouraging and hopeful signs that the issues of sustainability are being taken seriously and that necessary actions are starting to take root."
Matt Ball — "Data collection tools have a long way to go before solving all of our needs. There’s still great room for innovation in all areas of the geospatial data collection space, particularly in areas that go well beyond position."
Matt Ball — "Remote sensing is a critical component of the geospatial toolset, particularly in this era of global impacts and global change. Remote sensing technologies enable us to bring together data on a global scale in order to study and analyze the intricate systems of our dynamic planet. Remote sensing will continue to increase in importance as our populations grow and our resources become scarcer."
Jeff Thurston — "Geotechnologies are key global management tools and they are currently under utilised for managing global resources. Their effectiveness and benefits for managing the resources of our planet can be more fully realised through understanding planetary issues, processes and their dynamics, massive increases in entrepreneurial support and the level to which governments realize the connection between geotechnology and managing global resources."
Matt Ball — " Geotechnologies have come a long way toward enabling the better stewardship of our planet, but there’s considerably more that can be done. The public profile of sustainability issues is creating political will for better monitoring and management of resources and our environment. How geotechnology companies respond to these growing green opportunities will largely shape the future of the technology as a whole."
