Description

What if we could better understand the world's biggest challenges simply by looking at a map? Jack Dangermond, a pioneer in geographic information system (GIS) technology that powers the digital maps people around the world use every day, speaks with TED technology curator Simone Ross about how his team is building a geospatial nervous system: a global, interconnected GIS network that reveals patterns, visualizes trends -- and could transform the way we make decisions about nearly everything.

I'm struggling now the process of decision making of the vision I want against my weaknesses..either to go straight for what I wanted and love to do as carrier, or something to achieve that my loved ones could be proud of prior than earning profits.vs freezing to a person that does not fully commit the fundamental value of partnership called "THE MUTUAL OR INNER TRUST" Me, as a simple human being keep on trying to understand situations generally but lack of tools/materials surrounded with distructions perhaps, I therefore conclude that willingness and sincerity of what your doing are useless without proper coordination with those involved individuals.there are gifted people doesn't exist due to different circumstances.
