Thematic mapping at Googleplex

After I handed in my MSc thesis in August, Google invited me to San Francisco to present my work. Yesterday, I gave a tech talk at Googleplex about the Thematic Mapping Engine (now open-source) and how KML and Google Earth could be improved to better support popular thematic mapping techniques. My slides are available on SlideShare.


My talk was filmed and will probably appear online. I was a bit nervous during the presentation, so its not my best performance :-&

Anyway, I really enjoyed the discussions with the geo developers, the lunch talks, and the guided tour around Googleplex. Thanks Google!


The next event is the AGU 2008 Fall Meeting starting on Monday. I'm an invited speaker at the Virtual Globes at AGU session on Thursday.

Congratulations Bjorn, I'm glad you were able to get some air time and it's always great to see the improvements you are making in this new area.

Best wishes for 2009!

Bjorn, congrats on getting an invite out to the Googleplex! Looks like it was a great presentation. I've really enjoyed writing about your progress at GEB. Hopefully your presentation will show up on YouTube sometime.
