In this interview with Mike Dolbow, CEO of GeoHipster we talk about the opportunities within the geospatial industry that come with a deep understanding of a specific vertical. What newcomers to the industrial should think about focusing on and why. Mike debunks the 80% of all data has a spatial component myth and gives his perspectives on the future of the geospatial industry.
All of this might sound a little dry and perhaps it would be if Mike was not so open, honest and passionate about the subjects we discuss. I really enjoyed this conversation and I am sure you will too.

A platform that takes video and creates 3D mapping layers based on that data. The video can be from avariety of different sensors, does not need to be vertically looking down on the geography and each 3D output is georeferenced!
For most people, when they think aboutthe relationship between GIS and COVID-19, the obvious solution is tracking data. At the highest level, if there is any spatial relationship between where we are in our societies, where we go, who we interact with, and spread the disease, our measurements, thenour policy tools must also have a geospatial component to capture that effect.It's not a question of whether spatial data and spatial analysis matter for COVID-19. The problem is understanding what tools exactly can be used for specific insights and decisions.
