The Location Media Alliance (LMA) is focused on bringing more awareness to the business, technology, applications, and policy aspects of location technologies. “Video is the best visually engaging storytelling vehicle to broadcast the location story to millions of people who do not yet appreciate the role of geospatial or location technologies at work or in their daily lives,” said Myrna James Yoo, LMA member and owner/publisher of Apogeo Spatial (formerly Imaging Notes).
Geospatial Revolution, a series of four videos developed by Penn State Public Television, exposed thousands of students and millions of people to the role of geospatial technologies in everyday life, from monitoring climate change, preventing hunger, and tracking disease to enabling better city planning. “We are looking forward to working with the LMA on a ‘Location Lens’ video series and other opportunities that bring more awareness to the role of location technologies in so many other areas such as business, smart cities and smart buildings, security, public health and safety…” said Joe Myers, partner in storyshop.
