It Goes to Eleven
We took a little time off while James and his wife welcomed their latest bundle of joy into the world. In this episode, we talk a lot about digital twins, smart cities, and 3D GIS. The future of geospatial is connected and streaming and the digital twin segment is leading the way.Links:iPhone 12 mini — James buys an iPhone 12 minimacOS Big Sur — James' PSA is don't install Big SurAbandoning the Digital Notetaking – Spatially Adjusted — James said he was leaving digital, except he paid a ton of money to double down on digital...reMarkable — Single-use device of James' choiceDigital Twins | Microsoft Azure — Microsoft's Digital Twin platformiModel.js — Bentley's iModel Digital Twin standardDigital Twins and Unreal Engine — A look at using Unreal Engine with Digital TwinsAutodesk Tandem™ Brings Digital Twin To Building Information Modeling — Autodesk entered the chat...Unity and Digital TwinsDigital Twin ConsortiumRevitArcGIS ProCesiumDTDL

ArcGIS Virtual – The Esri UC
James and Bill talk about what they saw at the 2020 Esri Virtual UC in July 2020. Some of the items that caught their eye was ArcGIS Enterprise Kubernetes, GeoPackage Editing, Notebooks, Mobile and IoT.

GIS on MacOS
James and Bill go over how they use GIS on MacOS. From GDAL and QGIS to Safe FME and PostGIS, they cover all the easy ways it is to get started. James also leaves Spatial Networks and is looking for something to do.Links:James Fee — James is looking for a job.

You Won’t Believe the Research
We're all in lockdown but Bill and James are still up to things. From Bill playing with PostGIS, Node and Koop to James writing bash scripts so he can save 3 seconds on Git commits, they are working hard. Plus James gives a look into the GeoJSON Ballparks creation process.

Hot Geo Takes for 2010 – Yea You Read That Correctly
Look, they were bound to do another podcast and this is the one you get. Some Twitter talk considering Bill and James have both tweaked Twitter. James renews his passport and realizes that GeoWeb 2009 was 10 years ago. They discuss what Ron Lake meant to the community and during that time James clean up a 10 year old blog post and his blog software sends out a tweet that Jason Birch sees. That's some live podcasting right there. James shares his predictions for 2010 and Bill agrees they were mostly on point except for the Shapefile going away. Lastly they discuss Android 10, asking permission for location, incognito mode for Google Maps and what ethical responsibilities do companies have for location in ttheir apps. Links: Spatial Twitter List — James moved everyone spatial to a twitter list… A Hot Time at GeoWeb 2009 – Spatially Adjusted — The 2009 GeoWeb Conference has come and gone once again. 2009 was special to me because we have started to see some really great GeoWeb enabled websites really take flight. Clearly many have stopped talking about how discovery and sharing of data should be done and have begun implementing it. Ron Lake – The Man In the Arena – geoMusings — I never met Ron Lake, but the majority of my career has taken place in the geospatial technology landscape he helped create. He is best known as the author and chief advocate of Geography Markup Language (GML), the XML encoding of geographic objects that underpins most of the Open Geospatial Consortium’s web standards and is a standard itself. This fact made him a pioneer, a visionary, and a source of controversy. GeoWeb Conference – Wikipedia — The GeoWeb Conference focuses on the emergence of a true geographic dimension to the World Wide Web, and on the impact of Internet technologies on the acquisition, processing and visualization of geographic information. Geoweb is a conference of ideas and networking – how can we work together to build a global, integrated and inclusive model of our planet. 5 predictions Geo for 2010 and 5 things that won’t happen – Spatially Adjusted — Here are 5 predictions for Twenty Ten.

Live from Spatial Networks HQ after hours, it is Bill and James talking about tweets, globes and photos. We start with some thoughts on what expectations users should have with projects, what developers of those projects should expect as well. Cesium is now on it's own and we're both excited to see what happens. James has a ton of history with Cesium so there is much there. Lastly Bill just got back from Ireland and took some pictures with his phone and was surprised as to what Google was able to do without him having to lift a finger.Links:James' TweetQGISCesiumCesium: Series A Investment, Spinning Out, and the Future of 3D GeospatialglTF3D TilesGoogle Photos Assistant

GDAL: Beyond OGR
James and BIll talk about GDAL and OGR. James can't pronounce it correctly but he knows how to use it. Bill talks about how much it has been part of his workflows in the past 15 years. There is even more that didn't make the podcast via Howard Butler: GDAL Barn Raising Geodesy is a property of the data. When all our data came from paper maps, geodesy didn't matter as much except for the pocket protector crowd, but now that most of our positioning comes from space, geodesy buried in our data is an unavoidable topic. The open source stack of software based on GDAL and PROJ was deficient in the geodesy realm because PROJ was a cartographic transformation library (for making pretty maps!) rather than a geodetic library (for serious data management and engineering). Kristian Evers and Thomas Knudsen of Denmark SDFE (~ Denmark USGS) added the bits necessary to PROJ to allow it to act as a geodetic library as of the PROJ 5 release. The Barn Raising was needed to wire up those bits in PROJ 5 with the dictionaries that describe all of the transformations. This effort was three pieces – swapping out the GDAL_DATA and PROJ_LIB CSV files for a single, unified SQLite db, putting a OGC Well Known Text v2 engine in PROJ, wiring up GDAL, PROJ, libgeotiff, PostGIS, QGIS, and whoever else to use it all directly. The result of this effort is GDAL 3.0 and PROJ 6.1 Nyall Dawson has an excellent post describing how this effort improved QGIS https://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-developer/2019-June/057525.html by making the software work better, more simple, and more unified with the rest of the other projects. gdalbarn.com has the history of the efforts of who pushed in money and Even's progress reports as he did the development. gdal.org refactor Even, myself, Mateusz, and Dan Baston at the OSGeo Community Sprint in Minneapolis refactored the gdal.org website to be based on Sphinx like geotools.org, mapserver.org, pdal.io, proj.org, and many other ReadTheDocs-based efforts. A primary goal was to allow you to hit the front page and be able grep for a driver name right away. The docs were buried, and this was an effort to bubble them up, and make it easier for people to contribute to them. For example, there's now a PDF https://gdal.org/gdal.pdf (900 pages!) and people can use Sphinx Intersphinx capability to link to GDAL documentation in their own projects. COG Driver Even just pushed an explicit Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF COG driver for GDAL that will be released in the next GDAL release that handles the writing side of COG. Your audience should know about COG.
