Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Projects Have Stalled - A New Business Model Could Help
There comes a time in every business where business models and the way in which they persuade consumers to purchase their product must be re-imagined. There are some professionals in the Energy business that believe this time has come for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Find out more background about why this is warranted and what could be done to bring consumers back to this resource in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.
Google Maps Now Shows Earth as a Globe Instead of a Flat Surface
If you have ever used the mapping resource designed by Google - and let's face it, who hasn't? - then you know that Google Maps has typically always shown the world as a flat surface via the Mercator projection. While Google Earth was designed to show users the world as a globe, Google Maps was initially only interested in helping users get to Point B from Point A. The projection employed did not seem to be of the utmost importance for navigating to your next meeting downtown. In a recent upgrade, however, Google Maps now embraces the 3D globe - offering users a more comprehensive and realistic view of the world around them. Learn more about this change as well as the benefits this projection change will offer - especially if you are a true geomatics buff - in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.
#DailyBrainCandiii and #WeekliiiRoundUp are inspired by brain candiii, a division of Integrated Informatics that develops Geographic Information System (GIS) training for Energy and Natural Resources professionals.
