  • Main Topic
    In this episode, we discuss some aspects of privacy and geographic information. Advances in geospatial technologies, including Google Maps, Virtual Earth and other web mapping applications have made it relatively easy for knowledgeable users to combine many types of information about people with their locations; in effect, spatial profiling. While this is not new in GIS circles and privacy issues are a main focus of the GIS and Society literature, the new web mapping applications add a twist by showing how easy it is to create a spatial interface to synthesize and display all kinds of data that would normally be considered private.
