How are GIS Companies being Disrupted by other Technologies?

There has been discussion about how GIS will impact industry applications for years. But what technologies might impact GIS users and vendors? How are GIS companies being "disrupted" by other technologies?

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, March 23, 2014 9:00 AM

Videomapping it’s a video projection technique that transforms a surface in a display. Using suitable software you create animations of the surface which are then projected. The final effect is an illusion in 3D, in practice it is the projection of a video.
Luca Agnani is s Digital lighting, 3d & Visual Mapping Artist born in Macerata in 1976.
Luca works for advertising agencies, organization of events, associations, municipalities and individuals, creating artworks for celebration of a place of worship or a monument, at the opening of a shopping center, or the opening night of a nightclub. 
He was selected to lead his performances at major italian festivals including the Lpm of Rome, the Kernel Festival in Milan, Dancity of Foligno, the Robot in Bologna, Acusmatiq of Ancona and Barrakuda Festival in Croatia.
 Outstanding are his works on the front of the Arena Sferisterio during the week of culture, on the Duomo of Catania on the feast of St.Agatha, on the Mole Vanvitelliana of Ancona for the opening concert of Yann Tiersen and on the Sanctuary of San Michele on the occasion of receiving the UNESCO award.
His works are mainly characterized by the absence of elements and closely related to architecture and its history.

Brian Altonen's curator insight, November 11, 2013 9:43 PM

GIS is a mainstay in foreign countries.  It can exert more pressure politically and financially than any photograph or carefully planned news release.  Mapping the consequences of everyday changes with GIS or remote sensing can exert more pressure than even the best planned public relations campaigns.  By focusing too much on the minutia (people, cases and events), we often lose track of the bigger meaning (populations and their needs).

 

When we attach points to a map we are pointing to cause and effect, victims and events.  Maps assign more than just meaning to a situation, they link it to events and consequences people and places.  With regards to privacy and privacy concerns, there is no need to reveal a name or address on a map when it provides you with this much data.  We stop thinking about individuals and focus on what happened to a region due to this style of mapping.  We begin to think about culture and place, and the population as a whole.  

 

Concerns for particular individuals, people you may know by name or face, are minimized whenever events like these happen.  As individuals, only a few onlooker ever assign meaning to individuals they might know on such a map.  To total strangers, meaning is instead assigned to events and populations.  All of this is due to an aerial photo, a satellite image, or a highly detailed map about an event.
