A couple of podcasts that I just came across on SoundCloud… A new podcast series is just around the corner entitled Placing Culture by Shaun Huston of Western Oregon University, here is the “teaser”. At the same time, here is an older interview with Anne Kelly Knowles from a year ago on the Geography:Digital Humanities […]
This is not a post about Hexagon Geospatial’s Power Portfolio 2015 (we hope to have an interview about this year’s update in the coming weeks). Instead it is a post about their new video ads.
