We’ve done it again!
This time, Daniel O’Donohue and I talked about spatiotemporal data in GIS, including – of course – Time Manager, the new QGIS temporal support, and MovingPandas.
Since we need both data and tools to do spatiotemporal analysis, we also talked about file formats and data models. If you want to know more about data models for spatiotemporal (especially movement) data, have a look at the latest discussion paper I wrote together with Esteban Zimányi (MobilityDB) and Krishna Chaitanya Bommakanti (mobilitydb-sqlalchemy):

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:
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:
