New at google l.jpg
New at Google… CA

  • Positioning of Google Earth (new release) as “the geobrowser” for the Web with KML as the “markup” language

  • Street level geocoding addition to Google Maps API (limit 50,000 address/day) includes Canada, US, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Japan)

  • New satellite data

  • - four times more land mass covered in hi-res

  • New focus on building the 3D world building models (Sketchup) and local content


Google statistics l.jpg
Google statistics CA

  • 100,000,000 downloads of Google Earth

  • 1/3 of world’s population can now “see their neighbourhood”

  • 12 new employees/day

Where 2 0 o reilly june 13 14 san jose ca l.jpg
Where 2.0™ : O’Reilly, June 13-14, San Jose, CA CA

  • HIGHLIGHTS…

  • Key geo-portal providers

  • - Google (Maps/Earth), Microsoft (Virtual Earth/windows live local), Yahoo (Yahoo local), Mapquest

  • “Mash-ups” combine data with Map content

  • - estimate of 10,000 Google Map mash-up applications

  • - e.g. http://www.beerhunter.ca/OttawaArea


Where 2 0 highlights l.jpg
Where 2.0 highlights… CA

  • “Web 2.0” is the “read-write” Web

    Local focus – major new content focus

    simple geotagging (address, postal/zip code, etc.) allows anyone to publish geodata

    - weather, business, social networking information, 3D building models

    from many sources

    - high-res satellite (Google - new imagery, Microsoft – bird’s eye)

    - syndication feeds, general public

    - minimal metadata

    - issues: authoritativeness, privacy, licensing/IP rights

    - Wikipedia model for Geodata (e.g. Open street map)


Where 2 0 highlights open source geo l.jpg
Where 2.0 Highlights – Open Source GEO CA

- Open Source GIS will continue to expand feature offerings and continues to mature

- OSGeo foundation solidifies Geo-based Open Source


Where 2 0 highlight standards l.jpg
Where 2.0 highlight - STANDARDS CA

  • - KML and GeoRSS frequently mentioned in presentations

    - GeoRSS can allow for syndication feeds for Geo content

    - Suggested gap for tile-based Web mapping service

  • Simple = uptake (10,000 Mash-ups)

  • Raise the bar

    - Typical OGC standard “learning curve” is two-three months (e.g. WFS/GML)

    - Typical Google API “learning curve” is two-three days

    Process

    - defacto standard (e.g. KML)

    - “open” standards development (e.g. GeoRSS)


So what l.jpg
SO WHAT??? CA

- How does the emergence of consumer-oriented Geo impact the CGDI?

- Recommendations for GeoConnections?
