Stephen Hannon has a great blog called “Mind the Gap” – no not the one when you get off the train, the gap between “technology and sustainability”. Stephen came across the recent blog and article on the issues surrounding the adoption of mobile LIDAR by transportation agencies and added his own thoughts on the subject in this important follow on article.
I could not agree more with Stephen and I particularly like the concept of the “pain of adoption”, but I don’t want to paraphrase what is a well thought out presentation. Having participated in the adoption of GIS as standard operating procedure I can tell you that the heavy lifting was done on the organizational side not the technical.
It’s a must read.
