Geomob

Steven's guest this week is Jorge Sanz. They discuss the evolution of open source in the geospatial industry, particularly around the role of larger tech companies like Carto, where Jorge previously worked, and Elastic, where he now works. They delve into the capabilities of Elasticsearch and its use in geospatial applications. The conversation touches on the importance of data privacy and ownership, as well as the need for individuals to have an exit strategy from social media platforms. Jorge also shares his involvement in the geospatial community, Geoinquiets Valencia, his recent visit to his first in-person Geomob event in Barcelona, and his aspirations for a Geomob chapter in Valencia.
