The evolution of geospatial file formats and data exchange - An interview with the Co founder of Safe Software
Episode #43 - This is an interview with one of the founders of Safe Software, Dale Lutz (an all-around nice guy and a thought leader in the geospatial world). Dale walks you thought the evolution of the problems that Safe is solving, and gives you insight into the fallacy of the one “file to rule them all” theory and talks about trends in the geospatial file formats and data exchange in general.
We also discuss the future of Geospatial as an industry and from a practitioner’s perspective.
