Vricon is on a mission to build the most accurate 3D model of the surface of our planet. They have access to what might be the largest stockpile satellite imagery in the world and are using a technology stack that focuses on very large scale image processing and in particular multiview 3D reconstruction. I this podcast interview the Vise President of Vricon, Isaac Zaworski walks us through what the process of creating the most accurate 3D model of the world looks like today, what challenges they face when process imagery and what this might look like in the future.   

This episode is sponsored by HiveMapper

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!

Spatial thinking and geospatial technologies
The long tail of geospatial

It's not really about the technologies we use, its about understanding the principles behind the technologies, and where and when to apply them. Spatial thinking is the key skill, we don't need to master every new GIS tools, just knowing that they exist might be enough.

GIS spatial research into the covid-19 virus, a geospatial tracking case growth over time and space
COVID-19 Spatial Research

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.
