About the Project

Mission

With more than 1.25 million video views, the Geospatial Revolution project is the go-to source for government, education, and workforce development to learn how geospatial technology is changing the world. The project is anchored in a world-class research university and trusted for its PBS editorial standards.

Produced by WPSU Penn State, the project shares how geospatial information influences nearly everything. Our mission is to increase public understanding; strengthen interest in math, science, and technology; and inspire the next generation.

New Episodes

WPSU’s Emmy Award-winning team is producing a new episode to be released in Fall 2020. The new episode will emphasize the powerful convergence of geospatial technologies that will fundamentally change our lives.

Additional new episodes will build upon our legacy to serve as a trusted source of information.
