The future of remote sensing and earth observation might be open, collaborative and involve much more end user education than you expect. Dr Aliastair Graham shares his observations based on 20 years of experience in the industry. Aliastair walks you through what a future where all data is open might look like, some of the projects that are focused on making data more "findable" and "usable" and the opportunities he sees in the industry.

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.
