Small satellites are changing who dominates the field of satellite remote sensing
xyHt
There are big changes afoot in the satellite remote-sensing field: improved technology as well as regulatory shifts enabling the application of this technology. Here I look at current trends in — as well as future possibilities for — satellite remote sensing through the eyes of three industry players. I start on the ground, where satellite data is received, then liftoff into orbit to look at satellites themselves, and finally take an inside look at how sats get into space: launch platforms.

A milestone in digital mapping
GPS World
Hard to believe, we have only now reached the 10th anniversary of Google Maps. As important as digital maps have become, their purpose is much the same as the printed and drawn maps that preceded them. Digital maps emerged in the 1960s with the Census Bureau’s DIME maps.

Google's recent deprecations 'not cataclysmic'
Directions Magazine

I thought it was an attitude or behavior most often pointed towards one's self, such as a comedian's self-deprecating style, but over the last few months, Google has brought "deprecate" into the geospatial technology forefront.
