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...

We published another list of open and free data to take advantage of. Check it out and if you know of any more feel free to comment so we can add it to our next iteration.

Volcano Eruptions - Data from USGS Overview We had previously published an article related to open GIS data sources around the internet that were free to use. We wanted to update that list to expose even more resources and provide any new information on sites we mentioned before. Here is the original Geospatial Data Sources Article to get an idea on everything we started with before writing this one. It's worth checking that one o...

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.

The Nuclear Weapon Testing Map

Blast Map uses seismic records to map underground nuclear explosions around the world since 1963.
Earlier this month the Future of Life Institute partnered with NukeMap to create 1100 Declassified U.S. Nuclear Targets, an interactive map showing all U.S. nuclear targets around the world in 1956. Of course the nuclear arms race didn't end in 1956. In fact the USA, Russia and many other ...

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 …

"The world just got a whole lot smaller"
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.
