URISA 2012 – Closing Keynote by Jack Dangermond (Part 2 of 2)

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Last week, we featured the URISA 2012 closing keynote by Esri founder Jack Dangermond, where he highlighted how the GIS sector is poised for massive growth, and how collaboration will be a main driver for adoption and innovation.

Mr. Dangermond also discussed how new technologies are going to further extend GIS into the field, which will enable better and faster decision-making.   As a result organizations will be smarter with geospatial technologies serving as the underpinning for strategic growth.

In the second half of his keynote address, Mr. Dangermond dives deeper into how new cloud-based platforms will change how we collaborate and share data, which will also truly become “real time.”  And the near ubiquity of mobile devices and applications will drive more people to become more spatially aware.  The days of cumbersome GIS systems, which could only be used by a handful of trained professionals, are going by the wayside.

A big driver of change in the geospatial sector is advanced data analytics, which will re-imagine the whole premise of GIS.  We will have the software tools and analytics that will allow for pervasive geographic information to be used and accessed at all times.

Be sure to check out part two of Mr. Dangermond’s keynote address at URISA 2012 below.

URISA 2012 – Closing Keynote by Jack Dangermond (Part 1 of 2)

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Last year, Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) held its GIS-Pro 2012 symposium, which featured a closing keynote by one of the most iconic leaders in the geospatial sector:  Esri founder Jack Dangermond.

Mr. Dangermond’s leadership and vision have stimulated the ongoing innovation of GIS technologies that have shaped our sector in profound ways.

In his URISA 2012 closing keynote address, Mr. Dangermond highlighted how the GIS sector is poised for massive growth with a more than a few million GIS professionals around the world.   Things will be changing dramatically over the next couple of years.

Driving this radical change is the core premise that GIS can create a better world by enhancing communication and collaboration.  New technologies are going to further extend GIS into the field, which will enable better and faster decision-making.   Organizations will be smarter with geospatial technologies serving as the underpinning for strategic growth.

Be sure to check out part one of Mr. Dangermond’s keynote address at URISA 2012.

Five Minutes into the Future: An Argument for Taking a Longer View

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Last month, Esri held its Geodesign Summit, which is an annual gathering of professionals interested in using geospatial technologies to arrive at the best and most sustainable design solutions.

The event’s keynote speaker was Bran Ferren, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Applied Minds.  His organization invents and prototypes high technology products and innovative business concepts for the aerospace, defense, intelligence, automotive, architecture, computing, and consumer products sectors.

Needless to say Ferren provided a very innovative perspective on where the future of geodesign is headed.   In addition, he discussed how geodesign is becoming a new form of storytelling that will elevate the importance of key issues and global topics.

Farren also discussed how Geodesign plays a key role in “making things actionable in the course of human events.”  And, he provided a list of the new big six things that you may want to focus on in terms of Geodesign.

According to Farren, design is a privilege and there are three types of design:  reality-based design, fantasy-based design and bad design, which is the dominant form of design.  Farren pointed out how bad design is very dominant because many forces make it difficult to truly innovative.

This is merely a snapshot of many of the topics covered in the keynote address.  To hear a true innovator discuss the future of design, we highly recommend viewing this video below. (more…)
