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.
In this episode we have lots of news, from cognitive maps to open source conference goodness. Esri demonstrates its employer credentials and someones denies Australia's existence. Plus the New Zealand Prime Minister asks why New Zealand is left off so many maps.
In this episode, Chris and Mark consider the ethical implications of our industry and discuss the concepts of geospatial justice and geoslavery. Does location pose a special case for data privacy or is it little more than another data point on your digital profile? Plus we take a look at the news affecting our industry from ArcGIS updates to Carto conferences as well as a blast from the past as Top Gear takes a look at early SatNav systems.
So check out our new website! https://geodorable.com/ It's got proper show notes just like other grown up podcasts and a big back catalog of our previous podcasts for you to download and enjoy. In this episode we get our game on with Soccer Maps, we hold out for our Mercedes Benz sponsorship, we talk about Blockchain and location and have an argument as to why New Zealand is the most special spatial country in the world.
What's happened to traditional GIS? Oh it's there, just next to location analytics.
In this episode we have some epic news from a $50 million research grant for military drones in Australia, an article in GIS professional magazine by our very own Nathan Hazelwood, upcoming conferences and it wouldn’t be geodorable without a story about Strava. Plus we have a fabulous interview with Joseph Kerski, Esri’s Education Manager, and Mark gets schooled in a game of Export to Shapefile.
Back for 2018, we provide news and stories about the GIS industry in New Zealand and wider afield.
