GeoDesign Futures: Possibilities, Probabilities, Certainties, and Wildcards

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Stephen Ervin of Harvard Graduate School of Design shares his perspective on the future direction of geodesign. He gave this presentation in January at the 2012 GeoDesign Summit.

Stephen M. Ervin is the Assistant Dean for Information Technology at Harvard Design School, Director of Computer Resources, and lecturer in the Department of Landscape Architecture, at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. His MLA is from UMass/Amherst, his PhD from MIT, and he is a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects (FASLA).

Turning Red Fields to Green Fields

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: ArcWatch

Abby Jones of Anthro/Ecological Design Collective shares how she uses geodesign to convert distressed properties into green space in Los Angeles.  She is a recent graduate of the Master of Landscape Architecture program at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.

She presented her student team’s project outlining a case study on how to revitalize the economy of Los Angeles by converting vacant, foreclosed, or underutilized urban properties (red fields) to any green space that benefits the community (green fields). Her presentation covered regional, neighborhood, and site-level design and its cumulative impact using GIS.

Charlie Fitzpatrick on Geospatial Skills – a TEDxYouth Talk

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Article source: 

This is a TEDxYouth talk by Charlie Fitzpatrick for K-12 students.

Charlie Fitzpatrick is Manager of K12 Education for Esri, a company based in Redlands, CA, that makes geographic information system (“GIS”) software. Charlie was trained in Minnesota as a geographer and teacher. He taught social studies in grades 7-12 for 15 years, with most time in 8th grade (by choice). He spent free time helping teachers learn how to teach with computers (especially geography), and directed multi-week teacher institutes on that for IBM and the National Geographic Society. In 1992, he shifted to Esri to help administrators, teachers, and students learn about the many layers of the world, global to local, and solve problems through geographic analysis. Geospatial technology is a fast-growing arena, and Esri’s sole business is GIS, because people with geospatial skills are needed in every single industry, in governments, businesses, and agencies all over the world.

 

Jack Dangermond Keynote Presentation at Ozri 2011

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Hosted by Esri Australia, the market leader in Australia’s $2.1 billion spatial industry, Ozri has carved out a reputation as the Asia Pacific’s premier GIS event.

As one of the largest GIS conferences on the Asia Pacific spatial calendar, Ozri is the place for the industry to come together, collaborate, learn and be inspired.

In 2011, Ozri drew its largest crowd in its 25 year history, with more than 550 government, commercial and not-for-profit professionals from Australia, the Asia Pacific and the U.S.A descending on the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre for the event.

Jack Dangermond is an American business executive and environmental scientist. In 1969, he co-founded with his wife Laura the Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri), a privately-held Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software company. In 2009, with an estimated net worth of $2 billion, Dangermond joined the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans.

Dangermond is the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer and works out of Esri’s headquarters in Redlands, California. Dangermond founded Esri to perform land use analysis, however its focus evolved into GIS software development, highlighted by the release of Arc/INFO in the early 1980s; the development and marketing of Arc/INFO positioned Esri with the dominant market share among GIS software developers. Today Esri is the largest GIS software developer in the world and its flagship product, ArcGIS traces its heritage to Dangermond’s initial efforts in developing Arc/INFO.

Here is Jack Dangermond’s Keynot Presentation at Ozri 2011

Christophe Charpentier discusses the latest updates to existing ArcGIS Online basemaps and reference layers as well as new and upcoming content.

Updated Basemap Services
Contributions to World Topographic Map, one of the three community basemaps being built and expanded with detailed data from GIS organizations around the world, continue to grow. The latest updates to World Topographic Map include data from the Dutch Kadaster, which contributed airports, buildings, and neighborhood data from its topographic database; the Spanish Instituto Nacional de Estadística and Instituto Geográfico Nacional/Centro Nacional de Información Geográfica, which contributed administrative boundaries, buildings, hydrology, landmarks, parks, and airports data; the Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping, and Cadastre, which contributed administrative boundaries, landmarks, parks, roads, hydrology, building, contours, hillshade, and vegetation data; and British Ordnance Survey, which contributed data for several major cities in the United Kingdom that includes administrative boundaries, neighborhood, railroads, roads, hydrology, vegetation, and landforms data.

A TED Talk by Bill Davenhall: Your health depends on where you live

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

Where you live: It impacts your health as much as diet and genes do, but it’s not part of your medical records. At TEDMED, Bill Davenhall shows how overlooked government geo-data (from local heart-attack rates to toxic dumpsite info) can mesh with mobile GPS apps to keep doctors in the loop. Call it “geo-medicine.”
