Jesse spoke with Hilary Perkins at the recent URISA conference about their efforts in creating and running the new GIS Leadership Academy.
Intuit is announcing a new geo-demographic feature at the Adobe Max Conference. It’s to be built on Flash (grrr), but it will allow even the most basic Quickbooks user to tap into geodeomgraphic information and their sales information. The app is a sort of mashup, as the Quickbooks data lies on the user’s machine, but the base and demographic data lives on Intuit’s servers. This is pretty exciting, as it takes a fairly high end analytical tool and puts it in the hands of even the most novice of users.
