Geospatial Resources & Outreach

Geospatial Revolution LogoThe rise of mobile devices has allowed everyone to discover what those of us in public works have always known – geospatial technology is cool! Now everyone wants to know where people and things are and how to find them. Games and other applications are being developed based on location-based information. And to meet this increasing interest, Penn State Public Broadcasting has created a media-based outreach initiative. Their mission is "to expand public knowledge about the history, applications, related privacy and legal issues, and the potential future of location-based technologies."

Below is the trailer for the series of episodes produced by Penn State. You can view all the episodes on their site as they are released at:
