How companies are described…

An article in the Rocky Mountain News on GIWIS, a Dept. of Labor funded website to highlight jobs in geospatial to be launched in pilot form on Wednesday, describes DigitalGlobe as a “commercial spy satellite operator.” Oracle is described as a “software maker.” I’d have described DigitalGlobe as perhaps a “commercial imaging satellite operator” but “spy” does work for me.

I’m hopeful the website, put together by GITA and AAG, will offer valuable and accurate descriptions of companies and jobs available.
