Geospatial Revolution Project by Penn State Public Broadcasting

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Article source: 

We live in the Global Location Age. “Where am I?” is being replaced by, “Where am I in relation to everything else?”

The Geospatial Revolution Project is an integrated public service media and outreach initiative about the world of digital mapping and how it is changing the way we think, behave, and interact.

Mission

The mission of the Geospatial Revolution Project is to expand public knowledge about the history, applications, related privacy and legal issues, and the potential future of location-based technologies.

Geospatial information influences nearly everything. Seamless layers of satellites, surveillance, and location-based technologies create a worldwide geographic knowledge base vital to solving myriad social and environmental problems in the interconnected global community. We count on these technologies to:

  • fight climate change
  • map populations across continents, countries, and communities
  • track disease
  • strengthen bonds between cultures
  • assist first responders in protecting safety
  • enable democracy
  • navigate our personal lives

Episode 1

The first episode covers what is involved in the geospatial revolution, the origins of mapping and geospatial technology, and a look at the use of crisis mapping in Haitian earthquake relief efforts.
