Moving into the cloud

Over the past year I’ve found myself working more and more with cloud based SaaS products. We presented at Where 2.0 how we were using SaaS cloud services to help deliver data to the community in New Orleans. I then presented a keynote at the Safe FME UC about removing barriers to data sharing and how you can use cloud content management services to help share data within your organization or with the world. Clearly my mind was on pay as you go geospatial content management.

Well lucky enough for me a great opportunity presented itself and Thursday was my last day at RSP Architects. I’m really going to miss working with some very innovative people and the friendships I made there will definitely last me a lifetime. Starting next week I will be working at WeoGeo helping integrate their Library content management system in with existing workflows. Starting all this off will be the ESRI User Conference and we’ll have a booth (booth 217) where we’ll be demonstrating how the WeoGeo Library can help people manage their spatial content with ESRI ArcGIS. If you are at the ESRI UC next week, please stop by and say hello to myself, Paul or Dan.

I still plan to keep this blog exactly the way it is, blogging about GIS and whatever geospatial catches my eye. Planet Geospatial will continue to stay the way it is (and hopefully I’ll have a little time to improve it). I’ll be blogging the ESRI UC Plenary as usual so if you aren’t there, check back on Monday for all the latest news.

I’m really excited to be joining WeoGeo and the excellent team that has built the cloud based services and the great RESTful APIs that I’ve been able to use on projects. You can reach me at my new email address
