  • 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?
    Missouri – ‘The Show Me State’ A name attributed to Representative Willard Van Diver. It connotates a certain self-deprecating stubbornness and devotion to simple common sense.
  • Make better decisions, faster, gain agreement.
    Drill for oil, locate a shop, site a radio mast, asset acquisition, place advertisement, gain voters
    Endangered landscapes/species, asset failure, crime increase, wild fire/flood, disease
  • The idea that we can continue to slowly adapt is dangerously complacent

    World is changing vey rapidly
    The way people,interact with the world is changing
    The number of people interacting is chagning
  • 100 million web maps per month – and hardly any from traditional GIS firms
  • Masses of information – geographical context to help sense of it
  • 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.
  • Support for business case development
  • We are all sensors
    Geography as Context
    Real time data
    Position indoors and out
    Global IP traffic will quadruple from 2009 to 2014.

    1. 1. Where Next? Spatial Thinking Newcastle 9th Nov 2010 Presented by Graham Morgan MD Spatial Consultants Ltd Cockermouth, Cumbria Chairman AGI Northern Group, UK
    2. 2. 2Expert independent advice
    3. 3. Geospatial Primer • Everything is geospatial • Everything is related by virtue of location • Geospatial data can be drawn on a map 3 FIPS Line Title Area Name 1970 29001 Population (number of persons) 3/Adair, Missouri [29001] 22413 29003 Population (number of persons) 3/Andrew, Missouri [29003] 12008 29005 Population (number of persons) 3/Atchison, Missouri [29005] 9311 29007 Population (number of persons) 3/Audrain, Missouri [29007] 25486 29009 Population (number of persons) 3/Barry, Missouri [29009] 19715 29011 Population (number of persons) 3/Barton, Missouri [29011] 10503 29013 Population (number of persons) 3/Bates, Missouri [29013] 15431 29015 Population (number of persons) 3/Benton, Missouri [29015] 9814 29017 Population (number of persons) 3/Bollinger, Missouri [29017] 8915 29019 Population (number of persons) 3/Boone, Missouri [29019] 81073 29021 Population (number of persons) 3/Buchanan, Missouri [29021] 86997 29023 Population (number of persons) 3/Butler, Missouri [29023] 33798 29025 Population (number of persons) 3/Caldwell, Missouri [29025] 8380 29027 Population (number of persons) 3/Callaway, Missouri [29027] 26008 29029 Population (number of persons) 3/Camden, Missouri [29029] 13430 29031 Population (number of persons) 3/Cape Girardeau, Missouri [29031] 49511 29033 Population (number of persons) 3/Carroll, Missouri [29033] 12570 29035 Population (number of persons) 3/Carter, Missouri [29035] 3902 29037 Population (number of persons) 3/Cass, Missouri [29037] 39853 29039 Population (number of persons) 3/Cedar, Missouri [29039] 9458 29041 Population (number of persons) 3/Chariton, Missouri [29041] 11005 29043 Population (number of persons) 3/Christian, Missouri [29043] 15357 29045 Population (number of persons) 3/Clark, Missouri [29045] 8247 29047 Population (number of persons) 3/Clay, Missouri [29047] 124301 29049 Population (number of persons) 3/Clinton, Missouri [29049] 12548 29051 Population (number of persons) 3/Cole, Missouri [29051] 46274
    4. 4. How does GIS Create/Protect Wealth? • Evidence based decision making • Spatial analysis – better informed decisions • Targeting – Opportunities – Risks • Impact assessment 4 Data Integration, Analysis & Visualisation £ € £ € £ £ $ £ $ € £ £ $ £
    5. 5. What is different now? • Pace of change (demise of the record & film industries) • Rate of data creation • Medium of Communication (TV / newspapers -> web) • Chips with everything (e.g. intelligent fridge) • Globalisation (China has more internet users than the US) • Cultural Change - Social networking • We’re broke…
    6. 6. Key Themes • Geography as an information context • Consumer web mapping • Smart phones with GPS & location apps • Crowd sourcing • Open data policy • Cloud computing • Open source software 6
    7. 7. Geography as Context 7
    8. 8. Browser Geolocation 8
    9. 9. Smart Phones 9
    10. 10. Crowd Sourcing 10
    11. 11. Open Data 11
    12. 12. 12
    13. 13. Open Source Geospatial Software GRASS OpenLayers “In 5 years time, Open Source Geospatial won't be a niche or a specialism, it will be a standard way that things are done.” Jo Cook FDO MapGuide
    14. 14. Where Next? • Embrace Big Society data concept – Release datasets under Open Government License – Foster local crowd sourcing • Consider cloud based services – Reference data as a service – Functionality as a service • Enable mobile applications & searching – Geotag data with postcodes 14

    16. 16. Geospatial Information is Pervasive In 2015 position will be “always available” through Smartphones, RFID tags and other sensors. The value to each application will be variable, but it will always be there.
