GeoHipster is a collaborative independent online publication on geotechnology and culture, with special focus on open source and open data. We interview geohipsters (the meaning of the term being open to interpretation) from all walks of life and from all corners of the world. We aim to be informative and entertaining.
The website launched in December 2013. Below is the original “About” copy, much of which is still true today:
Do you grow your own organic vertices? Do you use gluten-free topology? Do you only geocode by hand, in small batches? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, GeoHipster is the place for you.
GeoHipster is the brainchild of Atanas Entchev and Glenn Letham, of ENTCHEV GIS and GIS User, respectively. We see this as a fun place for self-identified geohipsters to hang out. We are figuring things as we go.
Feedback and suggestions appreciated. Email suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2017, Mike Dolbow incorporated the business in Minnesota and took over operations as CEO. Contact Mike on Twitter or via mike (at) geohipster.com.
