Winter is here, and with it comes ski season. Ed speaks with Misha Gopaul, founder of FATMAP, which describes itself as "the best map for the mountains". Originally started as an app for skiers it has since expanded and now also provides 3D maps and guides optimized for all sorts of outdoor adventures. Misha tells the FATMAP story, going deep on the challenges of pairing an amazing visual experience optimized for the outdoors with other services for trip planning. He reflects on lessons learned in using geospatial services to build a thriving community, offers tips for other geospatial start-up founders, and shares what is next for FATMAP. Enjoy the discussion.
Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
