Top 10 awesome features coming in the new Google Maps
GIS User
By Glenn Letham: I'm sure more than a few of you have been catching the 2013 Google I/O livestream, unless you happen to be there in person (lucky you). It's always a treat to hear about Google and what's coming next. For myself I was interested to hear all about the future of Google Maps and Google Maps for mobile. Google has reinforced that Maps are all about exploring and discovering, especially on mobile. The experience will only get better, for the developer and end user.

70 percent of Americans favor infrastructure investments for security
Smart Grid News
By Jesse Berst: For a while now I have felt that the electric power industry has a major problem — namely, its poor skills in telling its own story. Modernizing the grid has a long list of business and societal benefits. But far too often, we fail to communicate those benefits in terms consumers can relate to. For instance, until Hurricane Sandy, many utilities were not connecting grid upgrades with reliability improvements.

Using GIS for disaster management
Directions Magazine
The devastation of Hurricane Sandy and the western wildfires in 2012 are sobering reminders that utilities always need to be prepared to respond to large-scale natural disasters. When faced with incidents of that size, a utility is forced to look at all of its resources in preparation, including those it doesn't typically utilize under normal conditions.

Mainstream geospatial: Industry trends lead mankind into a brighter future
GeoPlace
It was only 10 years ago that the term "professional" was first applied to GIS. The geospatial world was relatively unfamiliar to the public at large, and it took decades of establishing it as a credible technology before it has finally become mainstream — where it has always belonged. Today, people young and old navigate virtual maps with ease — something that previously was a playground for GIS specialists.

Beyond surveillance: Envisioning the future drone workforce
Wired
Jonathan Downey is the kind of guy you want flying you around. The 29-year-old MIT-educated engineer not only has a commercial pilot's license, but he also helped set the record for longest unmanned helicopter flight (18.7 hours) and pulled off among the highest hovers out of ground-effect (20,000 feet). Downey has taken his pilot and pilotless chops and turned them toward his own commercial drone company, Airware.

Maps and the geospatial revolution MOOC
Esri
Wouldn't it be amazing if thousands of people could learn about the power of mapping, start making their own web maps, and begin thinking spatially in new ways? MOOCs (Massively Open Online Courses) make it possible for universities to open higher education to many more students than was previously possible. Beginning July 17, Dr. Anthony C. Robinson, geography professor at Penn State University, will offer a MOOC entitled "Maps and the Geospatial Revolution."
