Who's afraid of Neo-Geography?

870 views

Published on

In the first decade of the 21st century, we've seen the business of location intelligence moving well beyond the traditional domains of surveying, remote sensing and spatial analysis. Sometimes referred to as 'neo-geography', we see the rapid emergence of location technologies in new areas such as Location-based Marketing, Augmented Reality, Crowdsourcing, Crisis Mapping, and Gaming. Most of these implementations are (very successfully) being developed by non-GIS practitioners, who don't know, nor care, about projections, topology, or CORS networks. This presentation will look at this rapidly moving field through some recent examples, and poses questions such as: should we be worried, and will there be any registered surveyors left in 20 years time?
