It Takes the World to Map the World

Mar 12, 2023

1:00pm – 2:00pm CT

Everything we do, everywhere we go, maps are a part of our daily lives. The more we move, the more data we create, the more patterns appear. Location data is changing the way we (and our stuff) move, and how we make sense of the world around us. Today, location data has opened the door for new business models that challenge age-old industries and, in some cases, create entirely new ones. Companies, countries, cities, and nonprofits, large and small, are unlocking its value to help make smart decisions for themselves and for the well-being of the planet. Learn about how collaborative mapmaking can accelerate innovation and disruption. Listen in as those at the heart of this conversation discuss the mechanics, challenges, and the opportunities such a location data ecosystem will bring.
