What the editor says about the October 2016 issue:
Plenty to interest readers in this issue, from high-level policy issues like INSPIRE (will it survive Brexit? See the Editor's comments) to the benefits of using GNSS enabled data collectors for utility surveys.
Codrina Ilie reports on the FOSS4G conference in Bonn, while Dan Joseph and colleagues report on how the American Red Cross is enabling local people to capture mapping for communities at risk from natural disasters and health emergencies. David R. Green and Jan O. Jansen show how using GIS analysis of mapping showing the spread of Hepatitis C can add value for planners. In a further example, our Big Map feature tracks the spread of the Zika virus across the US.
We also show how by using a drone a premier angling river at risk from pond weed can be quickly mapped for action.
EU governmental and public organisations have been busy implementing the INSPIRE Directive. Professor Ian Masser comments on the progress.
