Great presentation on Neocartography by Andrew Turner, who is a one of the superb and regular posters on Geowankers. Geowankers (for those of you who don’t know) is a mailing list for hackers who like maps and mapping applications or for anyone else interested in the burgeoning technologies of mapping, GIS and location-aware devices and services.
The presentation is a ‘Discussion on the next generation and open mapping technologies’ and really lives up to its title. It’s a lot easier to digest than How Google Earth Really Works because all those pictures are worth thousands of words (although if you take the time, the latter is pretty darn cool too).
This presentation was shown at the Future of Web Apps (FOWA) conference in London last week and really lives up to its title. There are lots of great URLs to jump off to. I don’t get to see many conferences, but luckily there are plenty of great presenations around on Slideshare, TED, VideoLectures and of course, iTunes U and YouTube.
