WeoGeo is a new marketplace for geographic data, and unlike other “sharing” sites, this one is about buying, selling and empowering others to create value added data. As the website moves out of beta at the end of September we get the inside story on where the idea came from and a tour from WeoGeo CEO and co-founder, Paul Bissett. The podcast is 16 minutes long and was recorded on Sept 20, 2007.
