Podcast: The Human Element in Geospatial Technology Hits the Mainstream
As we’ve been involved with or heard of GIS implementations around the world there’s a recurring rejoinder: “It’s not the technology preventing its implementation, but the people” which is short for politics, power and related issues. Now that geospatial technology is maturing and moving to the mainstream that same theme is popping up. And this week, we had some great examples, including the world’s (and the U.S. government’s) reaction to Google’s changes to its Katrina area imagery.
The podcast is 15 minutes long and was recorded on April 2, 2007.
