What GIS Means to Me

From small beginnings in the 1960s, GIS has grown into a global industry worth tens of billions of dollars, and penetrated every aspect of human activity, from wayfinding apps to scientific research. Today GIS is a central part of an emerging geospatial infrastructure that encompasses technology, education and human resources, and broader societal issues such as personal privacy.  Mike will be our keynote speaker this year and will sketch some of the key points in his own engagement with GIS, and key decisions that explain the trajectory of GIS development. Mike will end with some thoughts on the future.
