Goodchild frames the future of a Digital Earth
from Sensors & Systems
Dr. Michael Goodchild gave the keynote address at URISA's 50th annual conference in Portland, Ore. With the topic of the future of Digital Earth, Goodchild started by looking back at Al Gore's speech of Jan. 31, 1998, which first presented the term. That visionary speech about a virtual reality where we can go to a museum and zoom down to layers of information, going forward and back in time was compelling, a full seven years before Google Earth was launched.
