The Consumerization of GIS
Moderator: Dr. Steve Radil
Location: Crest/Horizon Rooms (4th floor)
For the past several decades well-trained professionals have been the primary users of GIS. But today everyone can have access to the most popular features of the technology, and can be providers of crowdsourced data. GIS is moving to the Web, where it is accessible to anyone through any kind of device. Public use of GIS is also creating demand for a more human-centric technology that reasons more like humans. All of these trends are creating an exciting new arena for GIS, and creating challenges for the research community. They are opening new opportunities, and at the same time forcing us to reconsider many of our longstanding assumptions.
Location: Whitewater Room
