I am Google's Geospatial Technologist with responsibility for evangelising Google’s mission to organise the world’s information using geography.
Before joining Google I was the first Chief Technology Officer in the 200-year-old history of Ordnance Survey, Britain's National Mapping Agency, and was instrumental in moving the focus of the organisation from mapping to the creation of geospatial Information.
Previously I worked for Autodesk, where I was EMEA Applications Manager for the Geographical Information Systems (GIS) Division.
I have a Masters degree in Applied Remote Sensing from Cranfield Institute of Technology and holds a Honorary Doctorate in Science from Kingston University, London.
I am a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and developed one of first weblogs in the Geospatial Industry at www.edparsons.com.
I am married with two children and about 20 computers and live in South West London.
