GeoEnabling Gov 2.0

General
Location: Independence Ballroom A Level:

Maps and GIS are changing. They’re becoming richer, smarter, and more pervasive. There are new styles, patterns, and techniques. The new media environment of social networks, such as Twitter and blogs, will be georeferenced together with real-time data. This will be combined with our traditional data, resulting in Web 2.0-style mashups that create a new set of services.

As a result, geographic knowledge will become pervasive in society. This “GeoWeb” offers many opportunities for government to be creative with this new media environment: creative cartography and spreading geographic knowledge everywhere.
