Spatial on air: talking Python on the MapScaping Podcast
Podcasts have become huge. I’m an avid listener of podcasts myself. I particularly enjoy formats that take the time to talk about unconventional topics in detail.
My first podcast experience was on the QGIS podcast hosted by Tim Sutton in 2014. Unfortunately, it seems like the podcast episodes are not online anymore.
Recently, I had the pleasure to join the MapScaping Podcast by Daniel O’Donohue to talk about Python for Geospatial:
Other guests Daniel has already interviewed include:
- Kurt Menke talking first about QGIS and in a second episode on QField and Input (data collection apps based on QGIS) and
- Paul Ramsey on Vector Tiles from PostGIS
Another geospatial podcast I really enjoy is The Mappyist Hour by Silas and Todd. Unfortunately, it’s a bit silent there now but it’s definitely worth to listen into their episode archive. One of my favorites is Episode 9 where Linda Stevens (Hecht) discusses her career at ESRI, the future of GIS, and the role of Open Source Spatial in that future:
If you listen to and want to recommend other spatial podcasts, please share them in the comments!
I listen to this ongoing podcast: http://scenefromabove.org/
They’re focused mainly on Earth observation, but they also discuss some broader topics like ethics, geospatial careers, datasets etc.
