Geospatial in the cloud

As mentioned previously, earlier in the week myself, Brian Timoney and Chris Helm did a set of presentations and demos on geospatial technology in the cloud, to the Boulder Denver Geospatial Technologists group. We were aiming to give a quick taste of a variety of interesting geo-things currently happening in the cloud, and we did it as six slots of about ten minutes each, and apart from my introductory opening slot these were all demos:
  • Peter: Why the cloud?
  • Brian: Google Fusion Tables
  • Chris: the OpenGeo stack on Amazon (PostGIS, GeoServer, OpenLayers, etc)
  • Peter: Ubisense myWorld and Arc2Earth
  • Chris: GeoCommons
  • Peter: OpenStreetMap
We got a lot of good feedback on the session. Here's the video (for best quality click through to vimeo and watch in HD):
