    Geospatial intelligence from the sky, automating the mining industry

    Geospatial intelligence from the sky, automating the mining industry

    Drones are changing the frequency, resolution, and scale of geospatial data collection. SkyCatch is applying drone-based data collection to the mining industry which might just be the first step on the journey to an autonomous workplace.

    The evolution of geospatial file formats and data exchange - An interview with the Co founder of Safe Software

    The evolution of geospatial file formats and data exchange - An interview with the Co founder of Safe Software

    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.   
    Quotes from the interview
    “.pdf is where data goes to die” 
    “after the nuclear holocaust, there will be only cockroaches and shapefiles”

    Trends in geospatial and initiatives in the community

    Trends in geospatial and initiatives in the community

    This episode is the last episode for 2019 and I wanted to do something a little different so this episode is a look back at some of the trends that I have seen in the geospatial industry of the course of the last year. I also mention a few of the initiatives that I have seen in the geospatial community and talk about the future of The MapScaping Podcast

    Travel Time - A better way of doing location based search

    Travel Time - A better way of doing location based search

    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.

    Remote sensing - building the globe in 3D

    Remote sensing - building the globe in 3D

    Vricon is on a mission to build the most accurate 3D model of the surface of our planet. They have access to what might be the largest stockpile satellite imagery in the world and are using a technology stack that focuses on very large scale image processing and in particular multiview 3D reconstruction. I this podcast interview the Vise President of Vricon, Isaac Zaworski walks us through what the process of creating the most accurate 3D model of the world looks like today, what challenges they face when process imagery and what this might look like in the future.

    Addressing the world - a coordinate system from humans

    Addressing the world - a coordinate system from humans

    What3words divides the world into a 3 * 3-meter grid, each square is uniquely identified by three words which creates a global reference system that allows people to identify and navigate between these 3*3 meter squares using 3 words instead of longitude and latitude. Three words are easy to remember and provide an easy and effective way of communicating location to voice-enabled machines. Listen to this interview with one of the co-founders of what3words, Jack Waley-Cohen to learn more about the problems what3words is solving and the thought that goes into building a coordinate system for humans.
