Mission

The mission of the Geospatial Revolution Project is to expand public knowledge about the history, applications, related privacy and legal issues, and the potential future of location-based technologies.

Geospatial information influences nearly everything. Seamless layers of satellites, surveillance, and location-based technologies create a worldwide geographic knowledge base vital to solving myriad social and environmental problems in the interconnected global community. We count on these technologies to:

  • fight climate change
  • map populations across continents, countries, and communities
  • track disease
  • strengthen bonds between cultures
  • assist first responders in protecting safety
  • enable democracy
  • navigate our personal lives
