GeoINT 2009 Coverage

Monday, October 26th, 2009

GeoINT 2009 turned out to be a great show with good attendance. We interviewed 30 companies. All of the interviews are now posted at:

While all of the interviews are excellent, some stand out more than others because of the sheer enthusiasm and genuine excitement of the interviewees. I was really impressed with Al Wargo of Zebra Imaging and the holographic technologies they are bringing out to maps and CAD drawings. The color holograms were truly astonishing (at about 3:50 time marker in the interview).

I was also struck by the enthusiasm of Jeff Peters of ESRI when he was talking about an upcoming release of ARCGIS 9.4. Jeff is extremely knowledgeable and it seems he is pretty involved and truly excited about this release.

Cherie Darnel of ITT was another standout. She just has a great personality. Her enthusiasm about their ENVI product is infectious.

Everyone at the DigitalGlobe was really pumped up about their new satellite which went up in the orbit a couple of weeks ago and sent some great images beginning of last week. They also have a great stand-out booth. It was a real privilege to meet Dr. Walter Scott who founded Digital Globe literally in his garage in 1992.

It is really fun to interview someone who is passionate about something. Mark Brender of GeoEYE perfectly fits this category. He is really passionate about the GeoEYE Foundation and his face lights up when he talks about it.

We do record the video interviews in front of a green screen and then replace the green screen with pictures of the corresponding booths. The interviewees are asked ahead of time not to wear green. But some of the ‘booth uniforms’ are green and the interviewees forget about the green screen at the interview time. This happened with Dylan Lorimer of Google and Jerry Skaw of Microsoft. See if you can notice the video editing artifacts in these interviews.
