Travel Time - A better way of doing location based search

 A podcast for the geospatial community

 In some respects, we are all drowning in data and one of the big challenges going forward will be filtering the data we have so we can make sense of the world by removing the noise. The Travel Time Platform approaches location-based search form the perspective of the time it takes to reach a destination. So in the example of searching for the nearest movie theater, the user will not be presented with a result that shows the options based on a certain travel time limitation as opposed to movie theaters in a straight line distance. In this interview, Charlie Davies walks us thought the challenges of building a search engine based on travel time and what this might look like in the future.

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!

Geospatial standards, like any standard, are what we agree on as a community. It’s a way to describe how we model geospatial data, exchange it, subset it, process it, visualize it, or reference it. We need standards because we share and integrate data, and we solve complex problems.

Google Earth Engine is acloud computing platform for scientificanalysis andvisualization of geospatial data sets. It isfree to use for research, education, and nonprofit. Google Earth Engine is essentially streaming data. You don’t need to go online to download the data — you just need a browser, and you can access the entire Google Earth Engine data catalog and a bunch of tools to do the analysis and visualization.
