Seward’s Folly: Insights from a 20-Year Career in the Geospatial Industry

Summary: Are you considering a career in geospatial? Perhaps you’re a few semesters in wondering what types of jobs are available after you graduate. The geospatial landscape has changed greatly over the last 20 years, from a niche industry that few knew about, to technology that is found on every cell phone in the world. In this forum, Anthony Calamito will share his insights and lessons-learned from a 20+ year career in the geospatial industry (the good, the bad, and the ugly), then provide his thoughts on where things are going in the future.

About the speaker: Mr. Calamito is Vice President and Co-Founder of GEO261, helping organizations perform product-market-fit analysis and construct go-to-market strategies optimized for growth. He began his career as a GIS Analyst, subsequently filling roles as Chief Geospatial Officer, VP of Product, and Chief Evangelist for several large geospatial software companies. Anthony maintains ties to the academic community having been an adjunct instructor for George Mason University, and a current Fellow of the American Geographical Society. Anthony earned his BS in Geography from Penn State University.
