Check out our review on the Geospatial industries showcase at GEOINT 2016. http://www.projectgeospatial.com/blog/geoint2016
Overview This year's GEOINT Symposium was hosted in Orlando, Florida taking place from May 15-18. Compared to last Year's attendees which had approximately 5500 registered attendees and 1600 registered federal attendees, this year conference has around 3500 registered attendees and 265 exhibitors. To date USGIF has accredited 14 collegiate geospatial intelligence certificate programs graduating 650 students with another 300+ in sc...

Ever wonder how much Imagery is in Google Earth?
 
Very interesting analysis by the Google Earth Blog on how much Imagery is really behind Google Earth. It's all just an estimate but very educated one from their methodology.
#GoogleEarth   #Imagery   #Google   #Geospatial   #Maps  
This is the fourth and final in a series of posts about the size of the data in Google Earth. We already looked at: How much data 3D imagery requires How much data different types of 2D imagery requires How much historical imagery exists Today we are putting it all together and trying to come …

1. GeoGuessr GueGuessr is definitely on the top of our list. It started as a small web app that gives you the challenge of guessing the locations of a series of random Street View images. After you’ve made your guess, it reveals the real location, and awards points based on how close you get. It’s so …

Maps can save lives by broadening our awareness about what is happening around us, other places, or even what is to come with analytics that can be applied to data at scale today.

Pluto has brought renewed inspiration in Space exploration as humanity has mapped the most distant planets in our solar system. You can checkout the latest imagery of Pluto from NASA using Google Earth.

Earlier this month, we had a look at a map of Pluto that NASA produced and made available in KML format for viewing Google Earth. That was before the New Horizons spacecraft had reached Pluto and the image was very blurry. Now the flyby is complete and we are starting to see higher resolution images, including the first high resolution map. It still only includes about half of the surface area and is a monochrome image, but it is considerably higher resolution than the previous version.

DigitalGlobe is using crowdsourcing to develop their object detection algorithms. Not too unlike how Google developed their Image search. These algorithms allow the system to perform feature extraction from images right after they are taken. Traditional analysis can take hours, days, and sometime weeks to breakout all of the features of an image.

Just a friendly reminder that you can easily download and analyze your own location history in Google Maps by going to https://www.google.com/maps/timeline. Here is an example of what I did by putting some data from Google Maps of a road trip I went on in 2012.

The only downside is you can only download one day at a time. You used to be able to download a range of data when it was once known as Latitude. To work around this I downloaded this road trip which was 4 weeks long day by day as KML and then uploaded it into Google FusionTables. Importing the files into FusionTables was very easy as each file was formatted the same way.

In tonight's episode I walk through a method of scraping geospatial data, using Google Sheets to edit the data, and importing into FusionTables to visualize on a map. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Project Geo. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Our webcast returns interviewing +Josh Williams. In addition to teaching, Josh created geteach.com; which received a 2012 Geographic Excellence in Media (GEM) award from the National Council for Geographic Education. We last interviewed him December of 2012 and now excited to get an update on how this innovative teaching tool has progressed and helped Josh teach geography.

A nicely done visualization on how the states of the US generate their electricity. It drills down to the various sources and includes a great graph that compares coal use by states versus the other electricity sources.

There is also a link to an article on how the Obama administration is toughening rules that force states to cut pollution from coal-burning power plants.

Thank you, +Washington Post 
Coal and natural gas are the most common sources for electricity, but coal represents a declining share.

We finished creating a new professional front-end website for everyone to checkout. Google+ will always be our place for interaction with the community and sharing new content but the new site has allowed us to create our own experience around Project Geospatial news, webcasts, and in-depth blog posts about industry topics.

Check us out and let us know what you think. We want your feedback on what questions you want to know about the industry and if you have something to share we would love to have you on a webcast as we get those running again too. Thanks everyone for your continued support.

+Caitlin Dempsey Morais​ Thanks! We put a contest out on 99Designs. I don't recommend them for website creation but everything else like logos is good. I wasn't happy with website that came out of the contest so I mashed one up myself in SquareSpace.

Introduction
Status: 2015-07-30 We are getting back into the spin of being Active again. We created a new professional website you all can check out which will be the front door to our webcast and blog posts for now on. Check it out and let us know what you think. http://www.projectgeospatial.com

Project Geo is a web series dedicated to increasing awareness of Geospatial Technology, industry best practices, and GIS resources. The cast consists of Adam Simmons and Mason Rothman.

We also air special episodes covering unique topics and interviews. Last year we covered GEOINT 2012. Here are a few notable people we have interviewed:
  • Keith Masback - USGIF President
  • Dr Shay Har-Noy - Tomnod CEO
  • Paul Van Dinther - A-Tour
Others we have had on the show include:
  • Mickey Mellen - Google Earth Blog
  • Bert De Bruijn - WikiWar
  • Wes Herche - Geospatial Enthusiast
  • Josh Williams - geteach.com
We love having guests on the show to elaborate on specific areas of the Geospatial Industry. If you consider yourself a Geospatial expert, hobbyist, or someone who is involved with maps, geography, cartography, or anything related to GIS we welcome your participation and input. Send us a message on Google+ if you want to be apart of our next episode.
