Future Gazing

How will the geospatial data market evolve over the next ten years?

I enjoyed this article by Matt Ball on the vector1media website. Matt looks at the impact of some profound changes that he says will give GIS users more (and for free) data.   Volunteer mapping and quality improvement from crowdsourcing,  not just from things like openstreetmap but also mobile platforms. (I was introduced recently to some new mobile location based games like foursquare that collect all sort of features and information as  a by-product).

Geospatial technologists will be synthesisers of data. Not a long article so well worth browsing to.
