Joe Francica

Francica is the editor in chief and vice publisher of Directions Media, the leading online publishing group for location technology and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) reaching nearly 200,000 visitors each month. Now comprising four publications and three major conferences, Directions Media is the largest publication dedicated to the location technology sector. Personally, Francica has authored over 500 articles and editorials on topics ranging from market research, wireless location-based services, retail trade area analysis, and the use of geographic information system (GIS) technology for business applications and he has been sought out for his market guidance by the national media, venture capitalists, and market research groups. He serves as a member of the board of directors of Directions Media.

Along with his weekly Internet podcasts and daily commentary at Directions Magazine, he has contributed to three books, Profiting from a GIS (published in 1993 by GIS World Books; edited by G. Castle), Geographic Information Systems in Business (published in 2005 by Idea Group Publishing; edited by J. Pick), and the Encyclopedia of GIS (published by Springer). In conjunction with colleagues at Penn State University, Francica has developed a course entitled “Location Intelligence for Business,” for the university’s online GIS program.

Francica helped to develop the Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM) in 2010 for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration that seeks to support the creation of model curricular for two- and four-year colleges. In addition, Francica served on the National Visiting Committee for the National Science Foundation supported Geospatial Technology Center of Excellence (Geotechcenter.org). In 2012, Francica was appointed by Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle to lead an economic development effort called GEO Huntsville to raise the awareness of geospatial technology opportunities in North Alabama and support workforce development. In 2013, Francica was named one of the top 25 geospatial technology influencers by OpenGeo.

In his early career, Francica was engaged in developing applications of hyperspectral remotely sensed data for mineral exploration and was one of the first geologists to map the Indus suture zone between India and Pakistan with Landsat imagery. While working for Sun Exploration and Production Company, Francica was active in utilizing Landsat Thematic Mapper data for oil and gas exploration. After receiving his MBA, Francica worked for GIS software companies, Tydac and Intergraph, in management roles. In 1991, Francica originated the column "GIS for Business" published by GIS World Magazine and later because editor of Business Geographics Magazine in 2000 before taking the position with Directions.

Personally, Mr. Francica received his bachelors degree (BA) from Rutgers University (New Brunswick, New Jersey) in Geology in 1978, followed by a master's degree (MA) in Earth Science from Dartmouth College (Hanover, New Hampshire) in 1980, and a master's degree in business administration (MBA) from the Edwin L. Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University (Dallas, Texas) in 1989. In the late 90’s he obtained a national ranking as a Masters runner and still holds state records at certain distances in Alabama. He lives in Huntsville, Alabama with his wife and has four sons.
