  • Geospatial Revolution Film Project

    The ASPRS Films project, working through the ASPRS Foundation, supported the initial efforts which eventually resulted in the Penn State Public Broadcasting (PBSB) Geospatial Revolution project. The Geospatial Revolution Project launched September 15, 2010. All four episodes are now available to view below or at: http://www.geospatialrevolution.psu.edu.

    The mission of the Geospatial Revolution Project is to expand public knowledge about the history, applications, related privacy and legal issues, and the potential future of location-based technologies.  Geospatial information influences nearly everything. Seamless layers of satellites, surveillance, and location-based technologies create a worldwide geographic knowledge base vital to solving myriad social and environmental problems in the interconnected global community. We count on these technologies to:

    1. fight climate change
    2. map populations across continents, countries, and communities
    3. track disease
    4. strengthen bonds between cultures
    5. assist first responders in protecting safety
    6. enable democracy
    7. navigate our personal lives
