Es verdad…this week we saw the introduction of ANOTHER geography podcast. I am very excited about this one since, as far as I know, it is the first non-english Geography podcast. I am also excited since it will give me a reason to listen to Spanish and hopefully remember some of what I have forgotten in the last 10 years (not that I knew much ). Check out Geografia Para Llevar for their first episode and also look at iTunes if you would like to subscribe.
There are two reasons to post about OpenGeoData…it is a fairly quiet blog and now a podcast. The first podcast is a discussion with Ed Parsons of the Ordinance Survey. Two days, two new geospatial podcasts. The community continues to grow.
Corbley Communications, Inc., a public relations and marketing for the geospatial industry, has released its first Geospatial Newsmaker Podcast. According to their press release, the podcast is an interview with Dr. Shawana Johnson, President of Global Marketing Insights, Inc. The main topic is the results of the 2005 NOAA International Remote Sensing Survey. They are planning to release other interview podcasts periodically. The Geospatial Newsmaker Podcast is only available for download from the Corbley Communications, Inc. or Global Insights, Inc. websites.
AVSP listener and fellow GIS in archaeology enthusiast, Matt, started a blog last week.Ã‚Â The aptly named GIS for Archaeology and CRM will be a great place to find information on the use of geospatial technologies for Cultural Resource Management from someone who is still in the field.Ã‚Â For those of you not familiar with the CRM it is the industry that has grown, in the US, out of various pieces of legislation that are intended to protect significant cultural resources (archaeological, historical, architectural, etc).Ã‚Â The National Historic Preservation Act and the National Environemental Policy Act are the two primary pieces of legislation in the US.Ã‚Â CRM is driven by similar legislation and ideas in other countries.
One of the folks who took the listener survey said their least favorite thing about AVSP is that it is the only GIS podcast, they clearly haven’t visited our links page to find Where It’s At.Ã‚Â This great Aussie oriented podcast by a couple of geospatial industry professionals has just released their 3rd episode so head over and check it out.
They also have an interesting post on their blog where they are letting folks document the misconceptions the media are propogating about the geospatial industry.
Alan Lew over at the Geography for Travelers podcast recently pointed to the new Travel Show podcast.Ã‚Â This 5 episode old podcast “takes you on a virtual tour of the world, exposing you to places you’ve never been and taking you back to the places you remember fondly.”Ã‚Â Ã‚Â As always I am curious to see how this podcast grows.
I noticed a new Geography feed on iTunes called Higher Geography the other day, but I couldn’t get it to download so I forgot about.Ã‚Â Today, the files I tried to connect to earlier were available and I have to say I am impressed.Ã‚Â The content does not rival Terra which I posted about last week, but it is just ramping and has some solid geography information.Ã‚Â They seem to have 3 levels planned, the Higher Geography, that is partially available now, and the standard and intermediate levels, that currently have holding pages in place.Ã‚Â Within the Higher Geography section they have three sections that are tied primarily to physical geography and the environment.
GEOCAST uses both audio and video to deliver their short topical presentations.Ã‚Â Great to see another Geography podcast out there!
David Noble, host of the Education Podcast Reflections podcast gave a quick review of AVSP in his most recent episode (#4). We were mentioned at the 7 minute and 56 second mark. His quote “Worth listening to because they’ve got something to say and are saying it in quite an original way.” will definitely go up somewhere on the VerySpatial site .
This video podcast is just amazing. The content is varied and easily rivals established documentary series. As far as I can tell from my quick glance after watching the episode on dendrochronology, the project is out of Montana State University’s Science and Natural History Filmmaking program and is taking advantage of some NSF funding.
From what I have seen so far, the production value is great and the content is engaging, and I am excited to watch the back log of exisiting episodes to get caught up. Definitely check it out if you get a chance! As always, it is available via direct download and iTunes and other RSS subscription tools.
