"GeoWeb" of the Future Subject of
Online Radio Show
By Will Craig, University of Minnesota
Last year it was Google Earth. This year it's the Geospatial Web that is democratizing spatial information. Geoweb (for short) combines map data with web-like hypermedia - webpages, video objects, audio objects, etc. - that are tagged with location coordinates in addition to a URL. It allows us to learn about the environment as we move through it.
These are the words of Mike Liebhold, Senior Researcher at the Institute for the Future. He is a keynote speaker at this spring's forum, Imagining Possibilities: The Next Frontier for Geographic Information Technology. You can learn more about this June 1 event and register for it at www.mngislis.org/metrogisforum.htm.
Liebhold spoke on a radio show, On Point: A New Sense of the Web that was aired on many public radio stations January 3, 2006. You can listen to the full broadcast at www.onpointradio.org/shows/2006/01/20060103_b_main.asp.
