The previous poll has been running for much too long, finally, here's the results! Out of 168 votes, there's clearly two camps. 58% of answers indicated that geospatial is special, at least a special type of data or that its overarching nature makes it special. That said, 20% (that's still 1 out of 5 of us) say that geospatial isn't special at all. In the 'neutral' answers, an additional 13% chose the option indicating that too many people deal with geospatial data without considering its spatial nature, and 10% admitted that no matter what, geospatial is special to them anyway! Yes yes, I will eventually write a followup on my entry named Is Geospatial Special? in order to provide precision on my point of view 🙂
