Podcast

#scenefromabove

Alastair Graham (@ajggeoger) and myself Andrew Cutts (@map_andrew) present an informal podcast looking at the world of modern remote sensing and Earth observation. Fuelled by our passion for all things raster and geospatial, the #scenefromabove podcast aims to be a mix of news, opinion, discussion and interviews.

We had a lot of fun doing this and huge credit to Alastair who does all the editing; I just did some talking and thinking… I hope you enjoy.
