We skip youtube for this episode and get back to basics with some financially based Spatial News. Plus we try and see what others can't and review Esri's TV commercial and consider what it means for the industry. Plus we have a hard fort game of Export to Shapefile.
Our second attempt at a multi channel podcast. We have lots of news, lots of views and in Topic of the Week we chat about how Enterprise systems are doing their darnedest to give GIS a run for its money.
In this episode we admit to being a little overwhelmed by technology as we attempt to livestream video whilst also recording the podcast - do we succeed, you decide!
In this episode Mark disappears mid way though the podcast! Does he come back, you'll have to listen to find out. We also cover some existing news about a new global mapping contender, we get all nostalgic about Fuzzy Felts, we realise we know very little about the NLF and only slightly more about the Democratic Primaries. This week we are definitely not sponsored by Asahi Dry, although it is a tasty drop.
After a tech breakdown enforced break we are playing catch up and cram as much as possible into this episode, so we have news, we have a wrap up of the Esri User Conference 2019 and Mark is challenged to a game of Export to Shapefile.
In this episode Mark and Chris chat with Ed Freyfogle, entrepreneur, investor, geomob wrangler, and co-founder of OpenCage Data about what makes him tick. Plus we say nice things about DJI, ask why Hobbits didn't use spatial analysis to find their way to Mount Doom, and discuss ways to make the Esri popup nicer.
Are maps art? Well of course they are and especially so if Daniel O'Donohue from MapScaping has created it. We chat to Daniel about MapScaping, and Danish GIS. In the news we look at a huge Class Action, we see what Facebook has been up to to locate potential users in Africa and we have the ubiquitous article about Game of Thrones.
We have a boatload of news, from Esri numerous updates, to unexpected members of the flat earth society, to drones firing seed missiles we have you covered. Plus we discuss what it takes to be a GIS consultant, and back by popular demand Export to Shapefile.
