The Films Project is an ASPRS endeavor to document the history and significance of our organization as well as the mapping industry. It does so by conducting video and audio interviews with key people in the geospatial profession and collecting historical photographs, documents, and other media from such sources as the US Geological Survey and the Tennessee Valley Authority. ASPRS has also participated in and supported the Geospatial Revolution Film Project of Penn State Public Broadcasting [link to http://www.geospatialrevolution.psu.edu/ A summary of the various activities of the Films Project is presented below.
Audio and Video-Taped Interviews
In 2007 the ASPRS Films Committee began conducting audio and video interviews with individuals who participated in the technological development and application of photogrammetry, mapping, and remote sensing. In so doing, they captured the interesting, heart-warming stories and personal insights of the pioneers who made the profession the exciting and rapidly evolving industry that it has been. About a hundred such interviews have been conducted. The videos produced served to create a series of one to two-minute vignettes that focus on various aspects of the mapmaking history. Some of these can be viewed on the ASPRS YouTube Channel.
The Wall of Honor
The Wall of Honor was an ASPRS-managed website that served as a gathering point for links to other websites created by individuals or corporations to recognize and honor the achievements of individuals in the field who played an important role in the advancement of photogrammetry, mapping, and remote sensing.
