Episode 44

In this episode, Chris and Mark consider the ethical implications of our industry and discuss the concepts of geospatial justice and geoslavery.  Does location pose a special case for data privacy or is it little more than another data point on your digital profile?  Plus we take a look at the news affecting our industry from ArcGIS updates to Carto conferences as well as a blast from the past as Top Gear takes a look at early SatNav systems.
