GITA partners with US Department of Labor
GITA
GITA has agreed to work with O*NET (Occupational Information Network), a research partner with the U.S. Department of Labor in an effort to extend efforts first expended through our GIWIS partnership. O*NET is interested in capturing information about the geospatial industry for use by the Department of Labor in classifying and describing our workforce. They have particular interest in answering the question "What constitutes a GIS Expert?"

To help with their efforts, we will share our membership e-mail list with them such that they may contact select individuals and invite them to participate in a survey. Compensation ($40) will be paid to those who participate, and all information will be kept in strict confidence. GITA will share the results with our members upon conclusion of the study.

If you would like to opt-out, please contact Drew Fioranelli at membership@gita.org, and we will be sure not to share your e-mail address. Additional information about this effort may be found at http://www.doleta.gov/programs/onet.

Inside GNSS
Deep military spending cuts that were set to kick in March 1 will likely slow efforts to modernize the GPS constellation, insiders agree, in large part because many of the personnel needed to push the program forward will be sitting at home, unpaid, one day out of every five.

What and where: The integration of remote sensing and GIS
Sensors & Systems
The sciences, technologies and practices of remote sensing and of geographic information systems arose separately, developed in parallel, intersected, and are now inextricably linked. Nearly all the features in most GIS are collected by means of satellite imagery or aerial photogrammetry, and GIS is the application where this imagery is most commonly visualized.

Market pause? More like a smart grid market explosion, says researcher
Smart Grid News
By Jesse Berst: As I roamed the aisles at this year's DistribuTECH conference, I pondered a conundrum. On the one hand, people feel the smart grid market has plateaued because the smart meter-focused stimulus funds have come and gone from the U.S. On the other hand, the aisles were full of utility buyers and the booths were full of exciting new products and services — more new announcements than I've ever seen.

How Google and Bing maps control what you can see
BuzzFeed
In early February, Wired published a satellite photo of a desert structure in southern Saudi Arabia. The image, screencapped from Bing Maps, corresponded with a report that the CIA had built secret drone bases in the region. The site was available on any computer with a web browser, but appeared to be legit — Bing Maps, which is owned by Microsoft, had effectively outed a closely guarded intelligence secret.

PBS
In part one of this series, we looked back at the early days of geolocation, with Platial kicking off the geoloco revolution in the practically prehistoric year of 2005. Since then, a number of paradigm-shifting startups have already come, gone or been sold, among them fwix, Loopt, Ditto, Blockboard, Everyblock (shut down this month) and the late lamented NextStop and Whrrl.
