Pitney Bowes Business Insight (PBBI) last week announced it will launch a geospatial content marketplace, which it describes as Data as a Service (DaaS). PBBI will partner with WeoGeo for the service, which is expected to go live in June. Directions Magazine editors contemplate the hurdles to success and how, or if, this marketplace will in fact be an iTunes for geodata.
The 2010 ESRI Business GIS Summit will be held July 11-12 in San Diego, California in conjunction with the ESRI International User Conference. The event will show how GIS can help businesses increase profitability, gain a competitive edge, and drive business innovation to succeed in todays economy.
