    How To Keep Your Satellite Pointing At Earth

    How To Keep Your Satellite Pointing At Earth

    It turns out that satellites are not as passive as you might think, and in the case of earth observation satellites it's not easy to keep them pointing at earth!

     

    But if you have a map of the stars, a sun tracker, and are able to keep an eye on the earth's horizon ... it's possible

    The Open Geospatial Consortium

    The Open Geospatial Consortium

    The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international consortium of more than 500 businesses, government agencies, research organizations, and universities ... but why should you care? 

     

    Maybe because this community is defining the future of geospatial infrastructure across all verticals!

     

    Maybe because they are determining a set of "the best practices" when it comes to solving big problems like climate change.

     

    Or ... if you have a business ... maybe because joining the OGC membership might just be the greatest marketing hack in the geospatial industry ;) 

     

    Here is a list of current members https://www.ogc.org/ogc/members

    Monetizing An Open-Source Geospatial Project

    Monetizing An Open-Source Geospatial Project

    WhiteBox Contains over 500 geospatial analysis tools. Many of these tools have novel functionality that you won’t find in other software and it's FREE to use! But is it possible to monetize an open-source geospatial project? and if so how would you do this?

     

    This episode is a follow-on from last week's episode so consider listening to that first. Last week's episode was a technical overview of what WhiteBox Tools is, this week's episode is about turning WhiteBox Tools into a business to ensure that the project is sustainable.

In-depth interviews across the geospatial spectrum

This is a great show that cuts across all types of topics and professions in the geospatial landscape. Great for taking the pulse of current happenings that also delves deeply into guests’ areas of expertise.

HabitTracking4Life ,

One of the best map podcasts

Daniel’s show really stands out with high quality - the guests, the interviewer, the right level of detail and structure. Highly recommended for folks interested in geospatial tech or even maps as a hobby.

Mr. Jex ,

The podcast for geo professionals

This podcast is fantastic. I just wish I would have know about it sooner! It covers a wide variety of geospatial content, from technical, career, to helpful resources. As a geologist, I find it a super helpful way to stay current with geospatial happenings. The people interviewed are great, and so are the occasional “solo” casts. Keep up the great work!
