Google Cloud’senterprise data warehouse. It’s an immensely scalable and quick data storage and processing product that got a geospatial facelift a couple of years ago. Users interact with BigQuery with standard SQL verbs. It feels like a relational database except you can have relations and tables that are petabytes big ̶ but to the user, it’s still just a simple case of typing in SQL.
Segmenting data and audiences is really big at the moment, its about getting the right message to the right person at the right time. Geospatial is a big part of that, it's about putting your data in context.
Everything happens at a location and at a specific time. Why have GIS standards ignored the temporal aspect of data, why don't we have the same kind of functionality for spatial-temporal data that we have for spatial data? Anita Graser, the creator of the time manager plugin for QGIS answers these questions.
R is perhaps the most powerful computer environment for data analysis that is currently available. Tim Appelhans joins me on the show today to talk about his journey from learning R too developing new packages and extending the geospatial visualization capabilities of R
An interview with one of the founders of Safe Software, Dale Lutz (an all-around nice guy and a thought leader in the geospatial world). Dale walks you thought the evolution of the problems that Safe is solving, and gives you insight into the fallacy of the one “file to rule them all” theory and talks about trends in the geospatial file formats and data exchange in general.
The curbside might not seem like the most obvious focus point in terms of mapping the urban environment but when you start to think of the curb as a highly regulated space and when you consider the number of arrivals and departures that that place on the curb in crowded urban environments.
The move from printed media to digital media has had a huge impact on the way cartography is used and consumed. News rooms around the world are not only using maps to illustrate their written content but also as a form of branding.
Craig Taylor creates inspirational geospatial visualizations and this is his journey from a formal education in GIS using industry standard tools to creating leading edge geospatial visualizations that tell meaningful stories using software that is designed for rendering 3D
An interview with the founder of vGIS. Alec explains how Augmented reality and mixed reality will change how we visualize and geospatial. Specific use cases for augmented reality and what augmented reality is not suited for with respect to geospatial.
