I'm new to GIS. Is machine learning used much in this field, and where?
I'm investigating a job opportunity with a mapping company working on traffic awareness. My background is in supervised machine learning (in text classification) and some use of Hadoop, and they assure me that my skills would be appropriate. I've been interested in GPS and GIS for some time, but I want to make sure that my machine learning skills (which I've invested in heavily -- including an MS degree) would be put to good use.
