  • Diversified farmer
  • Easiest way to produce map was with Google
    Perhaps because it rains a lot in cumbria…
  • Can you think of any information that a tourist would want that could not be shown on a map?
  • Geography addresses the basic “Where” question.
  • Slide 1 of 2
    GIS has moved on from dedicated high performance workstations to become available throughout the IT stack from the data centres to consumer mobile devices. Show satellites, 3D models, aerial photos, satnavs, RFIDs
  • The idea that we can continue to slowly adapt is dangerously complacent
    OpenStreetMap July 04, Facebook feb 04, Firefox nov 04,
    google earth june 05, live maps december 05, youtube feb 05, google maps feb 05,
    ajax april 06,
    twitter april 07, iphone jan 07,
    chrome dec 08, android oct 08
  • Masses of information – geographical context to help sense of it
  • Need to make postcodes easily visible
    Sat navs and search engines love postcodes
  • HTML 5
    Location permission needs to be granted by the user
    IE 9 will support geolocation
  • Augmented reality clip
    Phone knows: location, direction, orientation
    90M PNDs in 2009; 28M smartphones – 120M by 2015
    Geography as Context
    GPS, Glonass, Galileo, Compass – each with ~25 satellites
    90 million PND in 2009 worldwide, by 2015 almost all phones will have this capability
  • HTML 5 – location awareness, predictions on number of smart phones
    GPS accuracy improvement, location within buildings, underground
    LBS market est £13B by 2014
    Over 15% of Apple istore apps use location
  • Open government license
    Big Society
  • http://richard.cyganiak.de/2007/10/lod/lod-datasets_2010-09-22_colored.png
  • What will happen to the established players like ESRI?
    Standards based – opensource reference implementations
    Feb 2009 – UK Gov Open Source policy
    Apache web server, mySql database, Eclipse dev environment, Drupal, Autodesk MapGuide, Linux
  • Allow the outside world to help you.
  • We are all sensors
    Geography as Context
    Real time data
    Position indoors and out
    Global IP traffic will quadruple from 2009 to 2014.
