Do you think GIS as we know it will “disappear” into the cloud?

Jeff Thurston — “GIS has been waiting for the cloud. GIS was born to exist in the cloud. It will reach its highest potential there. The Cloud is fertile ground for a GIS. A GIS is about much more than location alone. Its truest value and highest potential are exposed through the capability to perform

If the world cannot come to agreement on GPS systems, where does that leave programs like GSDI?

Jeff Thurston — “Some people wish for a global GPS network operated by a UN type global agency. But is that necessary? Likely not. At the end of the day all that matters is high quality data, and for that data to be available to GSDI. Whether there is one or ten operating GPS systems

If we lost all the technology, would there still be geospatial insight?

Jeff Thurston — "It’s not too hard to think of a society based on pre-digital and pre-Internet based geospatial technologies because many of us can remember it. Imagine what you were doing in the 1960’s and 1970’s and the tools you were using back then. It took longer to measure something, longer to survey, longer

What is a GIS?

Jeff Thurston — "The definition of a geographical information system (GIS) evolved from a significant amount of research, discussion and debate in the 1980’s and early 1990’s, although the first computerized programs capable of performing GIS began much earlier. By definition, a GIS collects, manages, analyzes and displays geographic information." Matt Ball — "The definition of

What are the parallels between the stewardship of our planet and the healthcare of humans?

Jeff Thurston — "In a geospatial sense, one of our goals as a community is that we have the tools to understand, learn and explain to each other the relationships of the earth’s resource status and health in relation to development. The value of this role is perhaps one of the highest and most important

What is the role of GIS and GPS in renewable energy development?

Jeff Thurston — "GIS and GPS have a significant role in supporting the development and expansion of the renewable energy sector involving biomass, geothermal, solar, wind and hydro/wave types. The most obvious applications involve site location but other applications extend to meteorological forecasting, spatial/network analysis, geospatial modeling, facilities management and economic analysis-forecasting." Matt Ball —
