Ian White, Urban Mapper

I first heard about Ian White because of his Panamaps, city maps that contained layered information visible as you tilt the map.

I had the fortune of meeting him a couple months ago, and he totally geeked out about the design of data for mapping systems. He’s clearly frustrated by Standard Operating Procedures for geospatial data, and is passionate about how the design of *data* leads to better designed experiences. He’s even built a business around it.
The Design of Data is what he’ll be talking about at IDEA. Ian is the latest speaker to be added to the program. He and Ali will make a GIS tag-team!
