Summary: With a passion for GIS, location intelligence, maps, cartography, indeed anything with a whiff of spatial, Chris and Mark decided to seek fame and fortune by starting the world’s best geospatial podcast.* A podcast that may include anything and everything about the geospatial world. From news articles about the GIS industry that take our fancy, interviews with GIS practitioners, random acts of geospatial madness and of course the legendary game Export to Shapefile. So if you like maps and location then you might find listening to a couple of middle-aged guys from the land of the long white cloud (New Zealand) chat irreverently about geospatial stuff just the ticket! *this podcast may not actually be the best in the world.
What is Geospatial 2.0? If you aren't sure then join the club. We aim to enlighten a little, but we also have a lot to learn.
Get ready for the first virtual Esri UC, wave goodbye to the old Esri Field Apps and hello to the new Esri Field Maps, and join us as we walk with Elephants. Plus we take a look at the life of Waldo Tobler and the First Law of Geography.
Episode 70 - a whole episode more than episode 69! This week we top you up with some spatial news, doing our best to keep Covid-19 free, and we take a look at the New South Wales Digital Twin MVP, a lot of promise in a nice Cesium package.
As Covid-19 continues to impact the world we look at how spatial technology in various guises is used to monitor the threat, monitor resources, monitor social distancing and monitor boredom. Plus we discuss the what an online version of the Esri UC will be like.
If you have the Lockdown blues well we're here to brighten your day with general spatial waffle. We have a heap of news, not all of it Covid-19 related, plus we ask just how green is the GIS you are using in out Topic of the Week. So go find a quite place, sit back and relax, we've got this.
We live in troubled times, in our case troubled by technology, hospital visits and of course the impact of Covid-19. But we are back with some hot news, some great maps, river wide political boundaries and Google Maps hacks.
Back for 2020 we kick off the new year with a look back at some of the biggest mapping stories from 2019. Plus we discuss the misleading maps and images used to portray the Australian bush fires.
Its our Christmassy where we discuss seasonal gifts for the map loving loved one in your life. Plus we have a fair bit of news from across the Spatial industry.
We skip youtube for this episode and get back to basics with some financially based Spatial News. Plus we try and see what others can't and review Esri's TV commercial and consider what it means for the industry. Plus we have a hard fort game of Export to Shapefile.
Our second attempt at a multi channel podcast. We have lots of news, lots of views and in Topic of the Week we chat about how Enterprise systems are doing their darnedest to give GIS a run for its money.
In this episode we admit to being a little overwhelmed by technology as we attempt to livestream video whilst also recording the podcast - do we succeed, you decide!
In this episode Mark disappears mid way though the podcast! Does he come back, you'll have to listen to find out. We also cover some existing news about a new global mapping contender, we get all nostalgic about Fuzzy Felts, we realise we know very little about the NLF and only slightly more about the Democratic Primaries. This week we are definitely not sponsored by Asahi Dry, although it is a tasty drop.
After a tech breakdown enforced break we are playing catch up and cram as much as possible into this episode, so we have news, we have a wrap up of the Esri User Conference 2019 and Mark is challenged to a game of Export to Shapefile.
In this episode Mark and Chris chat with Ed Freyfogle, entrepreneur, investor, geomob wrangler, and co-founder of OpenCage Data about what makes him tick. Plus we say nice things about DJI, ask why Hobbits didn't use spatial analysis to find their way to Mount Doom, and discuss ways to make the Esri popup nicer.
Are maps art? Well of course they are and especially so if Daniel O'Donohue from MapScaping has created it. We chat to Daniel about MapScaping, and Danish GIS. In the news we look at a huge Class Action, we see what Facebook has been up to to locate potential users in Africa and we have the ubiquitous article about Game of Thrones.
