The evolution of geospatial file formats and data exchange

 A podcast for the geospatial community

This is 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.

We also discuss the future of Geospatial as an industry and from a practitioner’s perspective.

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!

Drones generate a lot of data. So much data, that the software intended to process it needs for it to be thinned before it can be used. It can be tricky to dumb the data down, intelligently. You may be needing to reduce 300 points in a 1x1m square, down to a single point. Generally, these complicated decisions will be streamlined through use of algorithms that can help smooth the overall data.
