Geospatial Revolution: Episode One Released

Back in July, we told you about the Geospatial Revolution project that Penn State Public Broadcasting was putting together. They’ve now released the first episode and it’s quite awesome.
The first episode is about 14 minutes long, and covers a variety of topics. Most of it is a technology overview (“How We Get There”, “How We Got Here”, “Why We Need It”, etc), but also includes an excellent segment about Ushahidi and the great work that they are doing.
Beyond that, they have lots of great snippets of info from people in the industry, including Mark Brender and Matt O’Connell from Geoeye and Michael Jones from Google.
Check it out for yourself on the Geospatial Revolution site, or just watch the full episode below:
