    GDAL - Geospatial Data Abstraction Library

    GDAL - Geospatial Data Abstraction Library

    GDAL is a critical piece of geospatial infrastructure. GDAL is open-source software and is sometimes pronounced “goo-doll” (a bit like goo-gle), while others pronounce it “gee-doll,” and others pronounce it “gee-dall.”
    In this episode, Paul Ramsey walks us through what GDAL is, where it can be found in the wild, and the business model that ensures that it continues to be developed and maintained.

    Counting Animals Using Satellite imagery

    Counting Animals Using Satellite imagery

    Satellite imagery has been successfully used to detect and count a number of wildlife species in open landscapes and seascapes where target animals have a strong contrast with their environment. Tom McHugh, CEO, and Founder of The Icon Group has been working on a way for using earth observation to carry a livestock inventory in an agricultural setting.

    Access to data - making room for unexpected contributors

    Access to data - making room for unexpected contributors

    "If you are of the mindset that data is power, and if I give away my data then I give away my power. That mindset is about 20 years out of date!"
    Access to data and how it might have a dramatic impact on local economies, how we make room for unexpected contributors like Dr. John Snow, and mindset to support unrestricted access.

My Geospatial Superpower

Okay. The secret is going to get out. Mapscaping is one of the most valuable resources for learning, teaching, consuming spatial data. You may be over-looking the second part of the one, two punch. Daniel provides the most informative episode notes I have ever seen. I confess to queuing up the entire catalogue while training for an ultra-race. Well done.

Inspiration for GIS professionals

I almost always listen to each episode twice - there’s so much interesting information to take in!

Great interview style and huge variety

The Geo tech ecosystem intersects nearly every field. Mapscaping does a great job trying to reach the far corners of this massive domain — and always wanting to learn more.
