GEO Jobe’s VP of Product Development, David Hansen, sat down earlier this year at DevSummit to discuss the GEO Jobe roadmap, the ArcGIS Ecosystem at 10.5 onward, industry trends, and growth potential in the traditional GIS and mapping industry.
From the Interview
David touches on a number of topics including machine learning and how the technology could be used in geotech, UAV as a growth segment, how GEO Jobe is working on the modern GIS platform, embracing the philosophy of the Science of Where, and GEO Mentorship. Looking down the road, David provides some expectations for the GEO Jobe and the GIS industry over the next decade. He’s excited about growth opportunities that include more portal to portal collaboration, explosive growth in UAV data collection & 3D modeling, leveraging big data in machine learning and more. If you happen to meet David at DevSummit or EsriucUC these are great topics to get his attention with over a beer! He finishes up by revealing something you would never know about GEO Jobe.
