Geospatial Forum with Nate Irwin – How Do We Save GIS?
- This event has passed.
Nate Irwin | Lead Developer | Trailhead Labs, San Francisco, CA
Abstract: For a number of reasons, the relevance of GIS, as we know it, is waning. Geography, on the other hand, is alive and well. In fact, it’s so pervasive that you’d be hard-pressed to find a tech company whose portfolio doesn’t include it in one form or another. In this talk, Nate will dive into where GIS stands today, how it fits in with the larger “Neogeography” movement, and how it must evolve to stay relevant. He will specifically apply lessons learned while exploring ways to increase participation in geospatial projects within the federal government.
