Project Geo is a new Google Plus Hangout web series dedicated to increasing awareness of Geospatial Technology, industry best practices, and GIS resources.
If you consider yourself a Geospatial expert, hobbyist, or someone who is or would like to get involved with maps, geography, cartography, or anything related to GIS, their team would welcome your participation, input or viewership.
The Google Plus Hangout is hosted by +Adam Simmons, +Andrea Cairola and +Mason Rothman. The three hosts have spent the majority of their careers working in the Geospatial industry spanning from the US military, the US federal government, Education institutes, a previous podcast called WeSeeDC and regular attendance at GIS related events hosted worldwide. With their 30+ years combined of experience in the Geospatial industry and general love of technology there is a good chance they will speak on subjects relevant to the participants and viewers.
Each episode the team covers the latest breaking Geo news followed by a in depth theme for the episode and finally ending with each of the members highlighting a favorite Geo based application whether desktop or mobile based. Tonight’s episode focuses on Social Geo and how the two worlds are coming together to create a great experience for users all over the world. Some of the programs to be featured are Foursquare, Highlight, Google Latitude and several more.
In their first four episodes, they’ve discussed things such as GeoEye, the excellent Geospatial Revolution videos, ASPRS and even Google Earth Blog.
The team is currently planning a new weekly feature that will focus on Google Earth highlighting favorite KMLs, Network Links that have previously been unavailable to the public and a favorite places to view feature. This new feature has the intent of displaying Google Earth’s technical background features as well as the beauty of our planet.
Join them every Tuesday evening at 7pm EST on the +Project Geo page, or watch their past videos on their YouTube channel (and also shown below):
