The Scene From Above podcast

Alastair Graham (@ajggeoger) and Andrew Cutts (@map_andrew) come together to present an informal podcast (@eoscenefrom) looking at the world of modern remote sensing and Earth observation. Fuelled by their passion for all things raster and geospatial, the #scenefromabove podcast aims to be a mix of news, opinion, discussion and interviews.
