Geospatial Revolution Project Videos
Adapted from the Penn State Public Broadcasting website

Penn State Public Broadcasting is launching the Geospatial Revolution Project, an integrated public media and outreach initiative about the impact of digital mapping and how it is changing the way we think, behave, and interact.
 
The first two high-definition video episodes have been released:

Episode 1:  The origins of geospatial information and the use of digital mapping in Haitian earthquake relief efforts
 
Episode 2:  Improving governance and customer services:
Creating an interactive city (Portland, Oregon)
Powering business (UPS)
Finding a healthy future (improving the food supply in Philadelphia)
 
Each episode is 13-15 minutes long and can be viewed either on the project website or via YouTube or vimeo.
 
Episodes 3 and 4 will be released in February and March of 2011.
