Penn State Univ PBS Geospatial Revolution Project

We live in the Global Location Age. “Where am I?” is being replaced by, “Where am I in relation to everything else? Penn State Public Broadcasting is developing the Geospatial Revolution Project, an integrated public service media and outreach initiative on the brave new world of digital mapping. The project will include a 60-minute public television broadcast program, a structured outreach initiative with educational partners, a chaptered program DVD including educational toolkit components, and a Web site with information and additional resources.

Even though this project is still in development, the trailer for the movie as it stands now serves as a wonderful introduction to “why geospatial technology and the geographic perspective” matters. Something you might want to show to your students!
