About GeoJoint

The Beginning … “for the lazy person”

This website started as a personal website..made specifically for 1 person. It was created to become a one-stop shop for news and geospatial information. In other words, it was made for this 1 particular lazy person (named Philip) to see all the latest news and blog postings in 1 place.

We all know that after going to 1 or 2 sites, we stop reading (and miss other important news). GeoJoint hopes to alleviate that problem…for all lazy people. This site is constantly updating with new articles, pulling from different sources, so check back frequently. It first opened up to the public in March 2019, just in case anyone else wanted to use it but it still continues to be used as a personal site for this one particular lazy person, Philip (seen below).

THE THING ABOUT ALL POSTS

Here is the thing about this site... when you click on an article, you are forwarded to the originating source. GeoJoint is not looking to steal the internet traffic. It was built to become a single focal point to view the news within the vast geospatial realm. As mentioned above, it was built for one person, Philip, but was then opened to the public to help others identify new information and sources within this ever-expanding geospatial realm.

One thing to mention... if you see a pop-up ad between GeoJoint and a source site, it is the source website that has implemented them. This website does not use pop-up ads. (They are evil, evil things.) If you see any pop-up ads, feel free to contact me and I will verify that it is not originating from GeoJoint.

CIG

Chief Information Grabber

The workhorse of this site. An outdated 1984 IBM 5150 "portable computer." OK, well technically it's not working on this site, but it would be funny if it was true.

I. Roy

I. Roy loves attention as well. She loves to sing at the absolute worst times and doesn't have a care in the world. She won the latest GeoJoint's Quarterly Attention Grabber award.
