  • 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
Google statistics
  • 100,000,000 downloads of Google Earth
  • 1/3 of world’s population can now “see their neighbourhood”

Where 2.0™ : O’Reilly, June 13-14, San Jose, 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
Where 2.0 highlights…
  • “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
Where 2.0 Highlights – Open Source GEO

- 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
Where 2.0 highlight - STANDARDS
  • - 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
SO WHAT???

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

- Recommendations for GeoConnections?
