Geospatial Revolution: Episode Two Released

We first told you about the Geospatial Revolution project back in July, and posted Episode One in late September.
Today, right on time, Penn State Public Broadcasting has released Episode Two. As with the first episode, the quality with which is was produced is stunningly good. They’ve done an amazing job with these.
This episode covers three major topics, all related to companies and communities using geospatial technologies to improve what they do:
1 – City of Portland: How they use tools such as Portland Maps to improve the city and plan for the future.
2 – UPS: I’ve always known that UPS uses this kind of technology quite heavily, but this gave excellent insight into some of the ways they use it.
3 – Philadelphia Food Trust: How Philadelphia used geospatial technology to find the greatest underserved communities and help get grocery stores to open in those areas to help serve those people.
Enjoy the video, and look for Episode Three on March 1, 2011.

  1. Very neat how Portland is using mapping. I lived there for 6 years and it’s a beautiful city. Too bad they don’t build more things it actually needs, streets and highways, and less buses, light rail and bike paths. Also, too bad for Portland that Sam Adams doesn’t improve his work as mayor.

  2. working since 1 year now with google earth pro and arcgis together. Would be great when everything was in one system.
