Share Your Insights: Geoawesomeness is Looking for Contributing Writers

Share Your Insights! Geoawesomeness is looking for new volunteer contributors to join our team! We’re not looking for professional writers, we’re looking for people. Geoawesomeness is a community platform and media organization focused on location technology and everything awesome about it. We are building an open community that everybody is able to join, contribute towards and feel heard.

That’s why our team is looking for people with unique voices and perspectives. We’re not interested in perfect prose, great grammar or spelling. We want to hear what you have to say. 

Our ethos revolves around creating a community that both reads stories by and writes for the community. Whether it’s your take on open geospatial data, what you’ve learned from working in geospatial organizations, or where the evolution of earth observation technologies is taking us—we want to hear it. Tell us about the biggest challenges you’ve faced in the industry, the needs you’d consider important and the thoughts you’ve had about a topic you care about. Geoawesomeness is all about sparking discussions and creating conversations that matter.

In 2024, we’re dedicating each month to a specific theme, but are open to articles beyond these areas and your insights too:

  • January: Bringing space data down to earth
  • February: The importance of real-time geospatial data
  • March: Sustainable agriculture using geospatial intelligence
  • April: Trends and developments in the industry
  • May Geospatial support for humanitarian aid
  • June: The emergence of 3D geospatial data visualization and augmented reality (AR)
  • July: Marine geospatial data and ocean conservation
  • August: Drones and other UAVs in geospatial data collection
  • September: Expanding lidar capabilities and uses
  • October: The revolution of BIM technology and the use of digital twins
  • November: Geospatial for climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • December: Looking back at 2024 and ahead to 2025

Don’t worry if you’ve got an article idea or draft that falls outside of these months or themes – we’re open to all ideas and can publish your article at any point. As a contributor, you’ll be supported by our editorial team every step of the way and have the freedom to pitch topics, spotlight changemakers and express your voice. 

No matter your background, writing skills or geospatial experience, we encourage and welcome you to bring your viewpoint to the table. At Geoawesomeness, we are united by our belief in the power of location technology to transform the world for the better. 

If you or someone you know is interested in writing, please email with the subject line: Geoawesomeness Contributor and the following details:

  • 3-5 lines about yourself and your connection to the geospatial and EO community
  • The topic(s) you’d like to write about and why
  • Either an article pitch or if already written, a draft article of 500-1000 words

Looking forward to receiving your ideas and insights for all things geospatial in 2024!
