What if a global modeling environment were to offer compatibility with multiple file formats?

Jeff Thurston — “I consider this situation already exists today since we can buy or gain high levels of interoperability between different data sources and their file formats. Global modeling progress is challenged by matters relating to governance, semantic interoperability, language barriers, suitable data availability, data quality and our level of understanding about complex processes

How is policy and governance connecting to the geospatial community and what are the challenges?

How will technology evolve so that digital city models become the new base map?

Jeff Thurston — "I’m not sure that city models would adequately serve the purpose of a base map for numerous reasons, the most obvious being that they do not cover rural areas.
