As the New Builders Podcast closes out 2016, we talk to Ryan Baumann (@RyanBaumann), Sales Engineer for Mapbox, about the ins and outs of open source mapping. Ryan shares how Mapbox has differentiated from traditional mapping and geo visualization tools to be more friendly to the application developer (3:33); how his previous role at Caterpillar brought him to geo-based BI and analytics (11:01); how hard industries, agriculture and oil and gas are among the industries now entering the space (13:15); what new possibilities are offered by Mapbox’s new 3D vector based visualizations (17:34); and Ryan’s geo and mapping predictions for 2017 (22:40).

In Part II of the podcast (24:30), New Builders co-hosts Doug (@DSFlora) and Jim (@JW_Young) offer a brief retrospective on 2016 and struggle to think of New Years’ resolutions for the show. We do make it a point to thank our listeners, guests and all the fancy tools we use to bring you new episodes every week (or so).
