….. Can these help bridge the digital divide?
The digital divide might seem like it’s in Africa or some other distant
place, but when it comes to geographic data, even those of us who are
connected via gigabit ethernet connections can’t get the data we need
nor do we know how to easily share that data with others. Dealing with
geographic data is hard. But it does not have to be. In fact, it should
be fun! There are many good ideas bubbling around and there is a lot of
open source geospatial software out there that can help.
