Suggested sessions

Add your suggested session below:

  • Geo data as a policy advocate Can government data be used to justify where the government should spend their money on development and improving infrastructure? Would public access to rich mapping and data correlation tools help elevate the discussion level at town hall meetings? (Max Ogden)
  • GeoCouch GeoCouch is an awesome geospatially indexed web database for hosting editable, a-la carte accessed geo-data. I'm using it to host government datasets (lots of Shapefiles). Come see why it's awesome! (Max Ogden)
  • Portland's open geo data! Let's talk about data in Portland and what we can do with it. (Max Ogden)
  • Stop re-inventing the cartographic wheel! What we learned about cartography decades ago. (a.k.a. You're not as innovative as you think you are.) (Darrell Fuhriman)
  • Authoring geo-enabled smartphone applications (discussion of different approaches)
  • Portland as digital lumber town (@spinnerin)
  • Grassroots Mapping with tools like KAP (Kite Aerial Photography) (@geografa)
  • Crisis Mapping and Digital Preparedness (@GEOpdx and …)
  • Location based social check-ins - Web 2.0 or Meh 2.0?
  • Making geo-processing as easy as Picking Fruit (@guidos) Using ESRI Toolbox, Interop extension, Python Scripts and other tools to create a repeatable workflow.
  • Non-visual augmented reality with SMS and GPS. (@geoloqi, @aaronpk, @caseorganic). Automatic check-ins, event triggers and sending messages to your future self.
  • Maps of Power: Discuss a curated collection of emotion-provoking maps that depict power, strife, propaganda, glory and despair – and share your own poignant cartographic finds. Proposed by Igal Koshevoy, who did last year's Best of Strange Maps session.
  • Learning the ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap: This toolkit helps ArcGIS users become active members of a growing community building an open, freely-available database of geographic data. It downloads OSM data, where it can be edited using ArcGIS, and then published back to OSM to share with others. @alpascual
  • Integrating real-time data into your map apps: Take a look at some of the challenges related to using real-time data. Discuss different techniques. @agup
  • Hyper Local Content Tagging: Discuss geotagging of hashtags, a community driven technology strategy to enable the realtime hyper local web. @CivicApps
  • Cascadia BaseMap: Can we create an integrated base map (data, services, etc.) of the Cascadia region using Open Source tools? Can we create this outside of any one government entity as to break down the barriers that keep this type of idea from becoming reality on a large scale? CUGOS (Cascadia Users of Geospatial Open Source, an OSGeo local chapter) believes we can and want to talk it through. Funding, Technology, People, Partnerships, Data, Support, Community, Learning Opportunities… lets map it out and get it done. (Aaron Racicot, CUGOS)
  • Formatting, Licensing and Co-Maintaining Public Data: Are licenses for data use uniform within and across local governments? What licenses and formats are best? Which formats will make more citizen-friendly apps possible? (With a tip of the hat to @maxogden for his efforts on this front.) What role can the public play in verifying and enhancing public data sets? (@ewstrategic)
  • Civic Apps and Social Graphs, or The App is Not the Thing: A successful app needs more than source code and a compiler, or scalable web hosting. How do we involve non-technical, non-governmental community members and stakeholders, build essay on their insight, and gain their support to make apps developed in the Civic Apps context a long-term success? (@ewstrategic)
