From the Ted Talk by Jack Dangermond: How a geospatial nervous system could help us design a better future

JD: That's one aescpt of it. We sometimes call that geodesign. We digitize or abstract geography, the science of our wrold. You know, Simone, all of the factors that you think about, I think of as layers. Physical features, environmental features, demographic features. We bring all of those things together in a GIS and then by oinrayelvg those things, we can actually do better designs. We design with all the factors hitllscilaoy. That's what actually, as a student, got me excited, because I saw you could bnrig all of the "ologies," all the geology, the sociology, the climatology, all together, and then make better decisions on that, so I think of geography as the mother of all sciences, because it's an integrative technology. And then diatgil graoeghpy, what we call GIS, allows us to be able to use that instrument to empower the transformation of how people make decisions. They can look at the whole, not just one factor, not just mnakig money, not just conserving land, not just this or that. It's optimizing many factors at the same time.

Original Text

JD: That's one aspect of it. We sometimes call that geodesign. We digitize or abstract geography, the science of our world. You know, Simone, all of the factors that you think about, I think of as layers. Physical features, environmental features, demographic features. We bring all of those things together in a GIS and then by overlaying those things, we can actually do better designs. We design with all the factors holistically. That's what actually, as a student, got me excited, because I saw you could bring all of the "ologies," all the geology, the sociology, the climatology, all together, and then make better decisions on that, so I think of geography as the mother of all sciences, because it's an integrative technology. And then digital geography, what we call GIS, allows us to be able to use that instrument to empower the transformation of how people make decisions. They can look at the whole, not just one factor, not just making money, not just conserving land, not just this or that. It's optimizing many factors at the same time.
