I just returned from a meeting of the recently renamed "Rocky Mountain Geotechnology Cluster" where we heard this morning from Joe Berry on an interesting Geo-Business Application to conduct retail competition analysis and Economic Gardening. The newly formed group (with a new official name as of today) has been established to share information about Geospatial technology companies with other professionals in the area. The idea is to promote this area as a hub of "geo" where a wealth of expertise exists. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences, network with peers, and drive the growth of Geo expertise to NOCO. A website is in development, until then those interested are encouraged to check out the Rocky Mountain Innovative Initiative at http://www.rmi2.org/ also, feel free to contact me if you want more info - I'll be glad to point you in the right direction. Companies in Northern Colorado are encouraged to take part.
