How Can Newspaper Business Models Succeed with Spatial Information Technologies?

What role do geospatial tools play in government transparency?

"Geospatial visualization provides a unique means to break through barriers between government agencies and across geographies to foster a more efficient bureaucracy. The ability to drill down into our own states and communities with detailed data about government programs and the state of the economy can provide a clarifying vision for action where action is

Does a Geo-Enabled Mobile Phone Make a Difference to Sustainability?

“Mobile phones are rapidly becoming all-in-one devices capable of providing a number of services and greater functionality. Beyond talking to other people and using them as navigation devices with their improving GPS capabilities, has the mobile phone extended itself in deeper and other constructive ways into sustainability issues, infrastructure, 3D cities or other areas we

How can geospatial solutions capture more of the IT budget?

"IT departments are being forced to become more process oriented, which is a good thing. Instead of just being stewards of all the infrastructure and applications, IT is being held accountable for process outcomes and the support of business objectives.

Is Real-time Geodata Important?

“Ten year’s ago real-time geodata was more or less a dream. Five year’s ago most people began to see more real-time data and were talking about it, but it was still something for the adventurous with deep pockets, who could afford to acquire it, process it and distribute it in a useful manner.  This is

What would it be like to have a digital memory of place?

"Now that we’re approaching the means to capture and distribute highly detailed digital realities that include interior spaces, it got me thinking more conceptually about the idea of having a digital memory of place.

Is There A Geospatial Future in the Global Economic Downturn?

"Watch out for those doom and gloom types – they are 180 degrees to where the geospatial world is heading. Stay away from them. Avoid them. Cast them away on large drifting icebergs and turn your attention to the real opportunities ahead. Negativity breeds its own destiny."

How Can We Communicate that Geospatial Technology Matters?

“We’re living in a time that requires strong actions, and GIS is essential to informing that action for maximum efficiency. We need to do a better job as an industry  educating decision makers about why geospatial technology matters. Despite years of advocacy and outreach, there’s still a disconnect between the capability and promise of geospatial

How Does a Digital City Model Compare to a Digital Rural Model?

"Digital city models are much better known than digital rural models. While buildings and infrastructure are likely to be modeled within cities, land and associated land operations and environmental parameters are more likely candidates for modeling the digital pathways stretching across rural and remote areas.  They are not two disconnected parts though. They interface each

What are some areas of market growth for the geospatial industry?

“All of the areas of growth that I’ll explore will require an expansion of the current geospatial toolset, and will likely involve new players. Given the focus of Vector1 Media on sustainability, I’ll look primarily at areas that stand to gain greatly by balancing the needs of the economy, the environment and society.”
