TOPIC: Open the Geospatial Floodgates – The Metaverse has Arrived
The "metaverse" concept has quickly evolved from theory to reality within the last decade. Real and virtual worlds have fused together ushering in technologies like Augmented Reality (AR) and LiDAR sensors built into the latest iPhone. Our world is increasingly being shaped by location-based information, and knowledge that was once relegated to experts in the geospatial domain, is now accessible to consumers.
In this recorded episode of Geospatial Distancing we sought answers to the following questions:
- What does a metaverse offer at the consumer level and how can the geospatial industry take advantage of the accessibility that it provides?
- How does the metaverse integrate with geospatial technology trends like the Internet of Things (IoT) or small satellite constellations?
- Beyond consumer-level applications, what does the metaverse offer to those in Defense and Intelligence organizations?
