Geospatial Innovation and the Rules of Engagement (Closing Session - Salon C & D)

This year’s keynotes carry notions of impending change for our industry: from "reaching a wide audience"(Julia Wolfe) and a need for "alliances between different open source communities" (Mark Munsell) to a "tsunami of spatial data" (Chris Holmes). We are urged to appeal to more demanding users, engage with other disciplines, and prepare for challenging technical demands. It is a call to arms for innovation. But how do we go about it?

Towards a Queryable Earth (Salon C & D)

Despite the incredible power of geospatial information, only a small group of people historically have been able to leverage it for informed decision-making. This situation has been exacerbated by the exponential explosion of data from satellites, drones, and Internet of Things sensors, exposing how traditional GIS and remote sensing techniques are not equipped to handle this tsunami of spatial data.

Map Like a Journalist (Salon C & D)

You've cleaned a 20,000 row csv, merged it with the strange propriety data format, and miraculously rendered the result into an interactive map. To you, every data point and zoom-level is fascinating. To a casual reader, it's overwhelming and opaque.
