With a headline like that, this better be good, right?
Its an all-star team, including:
Peter Batty, Vice President of Integraph. Peter’s presentation is titled “The disruption of geospatial technology” and will cover the radical changes that have reshaped the industry over the last few years and how traditional GIS vendors are adapting to the changed geospatial world.
Geoff Zeiss, Director of Technology at Autodesk. Geoff, who has a great blog, will talk about open source geospatial software and open standards, and how Web 2.0 technologies can be used by enterprises and utilities to improve their operations.
Bill Gail, Microsoft, Virtual Earth team. Bill will offer a peek behind the curtain of Virtual Earth by talking about the challenges of managing such massive amounts of data. He’ll also provide his insight on what is coming next from Microsoft, and how he thinks the new geospatial Internet will be used in the future.
And for my presentation, I’ll talk about social mapping – using the web to create mashups, share data and create communities of users.
Best of all, the last 40 minutes of the seminar will be a question and answer session. So if you’re attending GITA, make sure to sign up for the seminar and come prepared with lots of questions!
