Presentation From The New York Geospatial Summit 2011
You would think that I have just got up from a long winter’s nap, but I have spent most waking moments for the last month working on a project that was delivered yesterday.
The only spare time I had last month was spent on a presentation that I made at the New York State Geospatial Summit 2011 held in Skaneateles, New York on June 16. I was energized by the crowd. They were wonderful sources of information, as I discovered during breaks and meals. I have posted my presentation from the conference on SlideShare and have embedded it below for viewing. If you click the link at the top of the presentation and view the show at Slideshare you will be able to see my brief presentation notes.
Those of you who have suffered through my presentations know that they are prepared, packed with information of interest to me and delivered in a casual but rapid-fire style. In other words, the slides may not provide the same depth on the numerous ideas I presented during my color commentary of the images. My apologies, but I think you might find the presentation interesting anyway.
This weekend I will be drafting my next blog. It will be the follow-up to the last blog on Google Map Maker and how Google and Navteq will battle it out for supremacy. Well, maybe. I understand the SS Navteq may soon be set afloat and have new owners. Could it be true? Stand by and I will let you hear the story early next week (but after the holiday).
