What will the proliferation of earth observation mean for improved automation?

We are on the cusp of a massive proliferation of aerial and satellite earth observation inputs — from new commercial satellite constellations, to government sponsored satellites that offer their images free for use via online download, and unmanned aerial systems that are due to gain the air in the coming year. With all these inputs,

What’s the next evolution beyond the Map Wars and the Map Story Wars?

There’s a fascinating transformation underway in how map platforms are being marketed toward individuals and organizations. The consumer platforms (Google, Microsoft Bing Maps, Apple, etc.) have warred for some time over who has the better maps, navigation and developer tools. The battle to provide a mapping platform across all devices definitely became more interesting when

Is the Solid Conference the next Where 2.0 for geospatial technologists?

Just last week O’Reilly announced a new conference called Solid that is about software and hardware everywhere. The event addresses the coming together of software and hardware to change our interactions with the physical world, blurring the line between the physical and the virtual. In the absence of O’Reilly’s Where 2.0 Conference, could this be
