Vector1 Media has reached an agreement to purchase the Asian Surveying and Mapping (ASM) Newsletter from South Pacific Science Press International. The new arrangement will take effect on Jan. 1, 2010, and will help expand the reach of our content to a fast growing region that can benefit greatly from applied geospatial technologies.
The principals of South Pacific Science Press, Jon Fairall and Wendy Chapman, started the ASM Newsletter in 2003, and it has grown steadily from that point. The publication provides a good resource for companies and individuals that are applying geospatial technology in the region with entirely Asian-focused content. We intent to continue with the same format and coverage, while weaving in content that expands our mission that geospatial technology can improve upon the stewardship of our planet.
We’re excited to expand the reach into Asia with a dedicated regional publication. And even more exciting is that Jon Fairall has expressed an interest in contributing his considerable industry expertise to projects with V1 Research.
