@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:04pm @geoparadigm Welcome Alex, you do want to go out on a limb and make our first #geowebchat predictions?

@wildlifegisgirl Jan 05, 12:05pm Hello from Boulder CO #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:07pm Looking into the crystal ball…. I think #OpenSource will continue to be huge in the Geo space. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:07pm @wildlifegisgirl Welcome Emily, and welcome #gistribe to #geowebchat!

@wildlifegisgirl Jan 05, 12:08pm +1 RT @geoparadigm: Looking into the crystal ball…. I think #OpenSource will continue to be huge in the Geo space. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:09pm @geoparadigm Will there be any big new players joining #OpenSource geo, or will the innovation keep coming from familiar names? #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:10pm 2016 will be the year of maps and design. Lots of beautiful maps and visualizations being made by the masses. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:10pm @geoparadigm New players might be new upstarts, or could be existing big names switching to #opensource… #geowebchat

@wildlifegisgirl Jan 05, 12:10pm @mappingmashups thanks Alan! I predict that the @geohipster 2016 Calendar will take over the world once and for all #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:12pm @mappingmashups I predict a surprising acquisition of a new upstart… #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:12pm @wildlifegisgirl So this is the year that @geohipster goes mainstream?! ;) #geowebchat

@Steven_Ramage Jan 05, 12:13pm I hope/predict some big shifts in how global geospatial policy is positively impacted by @UNGGIM in 2016 #geowebchat

@jQueryGeo Jan 05, 12:13pm Where will we go for great spatial data in 2016? And how will we know to go there? #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:13pm @geoparadigm hah! That’s possible! Things move so fast that right now we might not even know the name of that upstart! #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:14pm @geoparadigm A year ago we might not have known about a cool company like Mapsense, and then they were acquired by end of year! #geowebchat

@Steven_Ramage Jan 05, 12:15pm I also predict greater global awareness around the challenges of location referencing and addressing! #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:16pm @jQueryGeo We will go to the drones, and we will know when we hear an annoying buzzing sound overhead :) #geowebchat #drones

@dvolps Jan 05, 12:16pm 10 yrs ago, if you told me a major Auto OEM, a taxi company, & Apple would each become global map makers, I’d have scoffed #geowebchat

@polemic Jan 05, 12:17pm Oh hai #geowebchat tuning in from sunny Auckland, New Zealand.

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:18pm @polemic Welcome! I’m glad our timeslot works for you down there! #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:20pm @dvolps Are you inviting us to try making 10 year predictions? :) Even 1 year is hard, but I’d love some long-range guesses too! #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:20pm Prediction in 2016 (10 year): Geospatial community key to solving #climatechange #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:21pm @geoparadigm @jQueryGeo For sure #drones will still be big news. Any guess at the most shocking #drone story we’ll see in 2016? #geowebchat

@wildlifegisgirl Jan 05, 12:23pm In 10 years, even the professionals will be doing all of our GIS from mobile devices #NoMoreOffices #geowebchat

@spara Jan 05, 12:23pm Indoor mapping will heat up – see Project Tango #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:25pm Toyota’s own realtime streetview. Will more car companies purchase geospatial companies in 2016? qub.me/32AJ6w #geowebchat

@jeresuikkila Jan 05, 12:25pm @mappingmashups @dvolps I wouldn’t dare to predict that far right now. So much happening in automated driving right now #geowebchat

@GonzoEarth Jan 05, 12:25pm big uptick in crowdsourced weather reporting and maps #geowebchat

@karldonert Jan 05, 12:26pm 2016: the year of digital data dashboards. Encouraging people to interact with beautiful maps & visualizations #geowebchat

@mapperz Jan 05, 12:27pm @mappingmashups @dvolps VR might make it if we shrink them goggles cesweb.org/Show-Floor/Mar… #geowebchat

@UrbDemogrphics Jan 05, 12:29pm @geoparadigm yes, with lots of repeated maps from previous years published as new ones #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:30pm @UrbDemogrphics If you haven’t seen #popvssoda you really need to. It’s a classic! popvssoda.com #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:31pm What does #geowebchat predict for the future of #openstreetmap this year? What will be the big #OSM stories in 2016?

@mapperz Jan 05, 12:34pm @jeresuikkila @mappingmashups @dvolps needs Ultra High Speed connectivity en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802…. IEEE802.11ay range 3km to work #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:35pm Will folks embrace OpenStreetMap for navigation in 2016 and use Scout? scoutgps.com/osm #osm #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:38pm Will mappers take to hoverboards in 2016? #thefuture #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:40pm @mappingmashups my fake start-up gets acquired paidmappers.github.io/home/ #geowebchat

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:41pm Will a practical use be found for @what3words in 2016, and will everyone start using it? I think that is very likely. #geowebchat

@polemic Jan 05, 12:41pm #geowebchat 2016: better use of geo and mapping in civil advocacy, e.g. around PT, infrastructure, planning etc.

@dvolps Jan 05, 12:42pm @mappingmashups more & extended mobile data collection & editing toolkits #geowebchat

@jQueryGeo Jan 05, 12:44pm @mappingmashups #openstreetmap will continue to not have true polygons or closed shapes in 2016 #geowebchat

@UrbDemogrphics Jan 05, 12:46pm @polemic yes, with more widespread use of #GTFS and Real-time transit data #geowebchat @mappingmashups

@geoparadigm Jan 05, 12:35pm Will folks embrace OpenStreetMap for navigation in 2016 and use Scout? scoutgps.com/osm #osm #geowebchat

@wildlifegisgirl Jan 05, 12:47pm @jonahadkins why do you say fake? #geowebchat

@Steven_Ramage Jan 05, 12:13pm I hope/predict some big shifts in how global geospatial policy is positively impacted by @UNGGIM in 2016 #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:52pm What are your predictions for the most surprising new #Maptime location that will appear in #2016? #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 12:58pm Any final #geo predictions for 2016 before we wrap up this month’s #geowebchat?

@prushforth Jan 05, 1:00pm In 2016, I am hoping/working for a good community to develop around #maps4html medium.com/@prushforth/th… #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Jan 05, 1:00pm Thanks for joining today’s #geowebchat, everybody. The transcript will be at mappingmashups.net/geowebchat. Next chat will be in 1 month, Feb 2nd.

@mapperz Jan 05, 1:04pm @mappingmashups postgres to support 5d postgis.net/docs/manual-1…. #geowebchat
