The team spent two days with the Redlands, CA Police Dept. Everyone there was great and gave us a full view of how they use geospatial and GIS to enhance their work. Chief Jim Buerrmann and Lieutenant Chris Catren were especially generous with their time. Only downside was the 110 degree heat. Pretty tough when you¹re in the back of a patrol car. On to Portland, Oregon, where it¹s 30 degrees cooler, to grab three days of shooting in the two we have scheduled.


Stay tuned

On June 29, 2010, we were in Quantico, Virginia, interviewing Craig Clarke and Captain Arturo Derryberry who used Ushahidi's information for the earthquake response in Haiti.

On June 30, 2010, we were at ESRI in Vienna, Virginia, interviewing Dr. Walter Scott from DigitalGlobe and Kate Chapman from OpenStreetMap.

Then we moved on to GeoEye in Sterling, Virginia, and interviewed Matt O'Connell from GeoEye and Kevin Pomfret from the Centre for Spatial Law and Policy.

It was a very busy two days, but some amazing interviews.

So excited for the September 15 release!
