What does geodata.gov mean to data.gov

During the First International Open Government Data Conference in November 2010, Xentity Geospatial Services and Architect Lead, Jim Barrett had the opportunity to present alongside colleagues such as the OMB Federal CIO, CTO, Sir Tim Berners-Lee and several other name-dropping figures in this space.

Xentity’s lead Architect, Jim Barrett, presented on our recent conceptual architecture work for data.gov that looked to integrate the previous administrations geodata.gov. Geodata.gov open data registration accounts for over 80% of all data in data.gov, so its by all means a major impact to where data.gov would need to focus.

The conference appears to continue as a bi-annual event with the last one being held in July 2012

The following captures the extended version of his presentation:
