GIS News - Business
Written by glenn   
19 February 2013


Welcome again to another Geo / Location Tech news roundup. Prepare to hear lots about OpenGov, OpenData and the likes this week as there's a ton of activity in that space this month. Just today details of the Knight Foundation news challenge has been trending on Twitter - this is a cool effort to help improve the way citizens and government interact (See more). I know that locally here in B.C. the Province and stakeholders are hosting an event today billed as the OpenData Summit - a gathering of Government, orgs, and stakeholders - heck, we even have an official Ministry of Open Government here! Coinciding with the event, DataBC (@Data_BC), the official resource for public access to OpenData and much more, has rolled out a new look and some new functionality - see this fine example Here (I wonder if perhaps it's been modelled after the Whitehouse OpenGov initiative?) - There's definitely loads going on around here, and likely in your area as well I suspect! Moving forward, there's a TON of news and interesting tidbits to be found on GISuser and the AnyGeo blog, hopefully you've taken some time to look around. We've got details of a new 30M Global Satellite Imagery Mosaic; an Engery Mapping product; an update on the RIEGL LIDAR 2013 event; some ILMF take aways; details of StateoftheMap USA event; and even some handy tips on developing a budget for 2013 - be sure to have a look around for these gems! Have a great day everyone and you Colorado geeks, consider registering for the fun, DevMeetUP CO event taking place March 6 in the Fort - I'll see you there and if you can't make it be sure to look for a DevMeetup taking place in your area.
