The Geospatial Revolution Project

Doing some research and found Geospatial Revolution Project a little while ago (see, for example, posts from Boing Boing and Google Maps Mania). Described as an integrated multimedia educational initiative exploring the use and impact of digital mapping, the Project is scheduled to produce a series of web videos that would form, once finished, a 60-minute documentary. A five-minute trailer gave some idea of what was to come.

The Project’s first episode (of four) went live. In less than 14 minutes it introduces the subject, sets out the origins of geospatial technology, and explores its use in disaster relief for the Haitian earthquake. Something that I am proud to say that I was able to help with. 

I am looking forward to what will come in the remaining segments. The next episode is scheduled for release on November 2; episode three will come out on February 1, 2011, with the final episode following on March 15.
