10 Geospatial Predictions for 2013
In our book The GIS Guide to Public Domain Data, we included several items from our colleague Matt Ball, who has been writing about spatial data for many years. His recent 10 geospatial predictions for 2013, http://www.sensysmag.com/dialog/perspectives/28845-ten-predictions-for-2013.html, touch on several key themes in our book, including growing scrutiny on location privacy, the growth of unmanned aerial vehicles and systems, cloud computing, government cuts, an increased ability to use place and location and associated tools in documentation and reporting, and government data “decrees.”
Which of these predictions do you think will come true? Which have already happened and simply will gain momentum? Which of these predictions do you believe have the most important implications for the field of GIS?
