Joining Ed this week is cartographic technologist and the man behind Protomaps, Brandon Liu. Protomaps is a set of tools for creating and deploying maps, or as Brandon describes it: an open source Google maps. Tune in to learn how Protomaps attempts to simplify map making for some of the more underserved groups including journalists and non-profit organisations. Ed and Brandon discuss the cost and complexity of using OpenStreetMap for your business, and clear up some misunderstandings and misconceptions about mapping with open data. Is a simpler and radically cheaper service really possible? Listen in to find out!
Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
