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 —

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

Does the structure of a product manufacturer’s business impact marketing and communications?

Jeff Thurston — “The world inside your organisation is a comfort zone and how it is structured impacts how users and customers interact with it. The world outside your organisation is your future. Marketing and communications bridge the two in an interactive and dynamic way.” Matt Ball — ” There have been several structural changes

What is the promise of the model-based future for multi-disciplinary planning projects?

Jeff Thurston — “Multi-disciplinary projects and modeling will be critically important in the future. The need for increased transparency, more legislation, distributed workflows and processes as well as a desire to embrace and include professional experience and knowledge to deal with complex problems are all key factors involved.  A large hurdle will be in learning

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

Jeff Thurston — "Policy and governance weave their way through all areas of the geospatial industry. While many of us may not deal with them directly in our daily work, the trail toward education, research, applications and operations as well as development initiatives, are often connected to policies and governance." Matt Ball — "I think

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. A cadastral survey in my view is the foundation upon which the complexity of sustainable development can take place. However, city models have

Is geospatial technology changing the need for professional bodies and professional accreditation?

Jeff Thurston — “Our technologies, research, education needs and knowledge have brought us to a time and place where we need to sit down, dwell on our goals and “how our current systems are not performing to help us build the systems we need to get to where we know we need to be. If

How do the issues of scale factor into sustainability planning and the technology toolset?

Jeff Thurston — “Issues related to scale are centrally important in sustainability planning and associated technology toolsets and occurs both in time and space. People working in the geospatial industry need to be aware of scale at all times because it is defined uniquely and often applied with application and use in mind.” Matt Ball

What have you learned so far from publishing V1 Magazine, is the sustainability message resonating?

Jeff Thurston — "It has been interesting to watch the reactions to our magazine. There is a group of folks who need some help to understand where their technologies slot into the sustainability equation. Yet others have been awaiting for a good long while for this kind of magazine. A third group is evolving with

Is the geospatial data collection space still ripe for innovation?

Jeff Thurston — "The geospatial data collection space has barely begun. We have been developing technologies, honing our skills, learning how to apply digital technologies to applications and only just unlocking the door to working with spatial information in a collaborative fashion. There is still much work to be done around the issue of ‘thinking
