Commenting on a comment on my slightly disappointed take on a couple of new spatial datasets yesterday, our regular reader Glenn Hyman, another CGIAR CGI uber-geek, muses thus:
If I was a young GIS geek, I think I would concentrate on how to create online applications for the non-expert.
Do you mean, Glenn, the kind of “online application for the non-expert” which the Atlas of Living Australia aspires, with considerable success, to be? Which coincidentally is being so actively discussed on Twitter just now.1 And which I need to road test again very soon, as there have been significant changes since the last time I took it around the block.
