Hold On: Should Neogeography really be Neogeomatics (?)

Over the past year or so we have written a number of book chapters and papers on the rise of Neogeography, especially with regards our Web 2.0 centric tools produced at CASA. See The Renaissance of Geographic Information: Neogeography, Gaming and Second Life: Working Paper 142 for example in which we discuss the rise of the Neogeographer.

According to Wikipedia: Geomatics is the discipline of gathering, storing, processing, and delivery of geographic information, or spatially referenced information. Thus Neogeomatics is the emerging trend of crowd sourced data, data gathering and delivery via Web 2.0 tools.

They are also planning to run a competition to win a high resolution 18 x24 inch print of one of our ‘Urban Bubble’ panoramas shortly so keep watching the site. This will be a first edition print so well worth looking out for (in our humble opinion of course!)….
