CBC Spark Interview - The Future of Digital Mapmaking

CBC Radio SparkEarlier this week I was fortunate to interview on CBC Spark with Nora Young about the "Future of Digital Mapmaking". We discussed a wide range of topics on the state and future of map making. Open data communities such as Openstreetmap, location ads, Google and Apple's new platforms, augmented reality and more.

I truly enjoy thought provoking conversations that think more broadly about the domain and where it's going. I hope you enjoy the interview and please let me know any comments or thoughts you have.
