Open Street Map Mapping Party
Platial
  • When: 22 July 2pm
  • Where: 635 NE Going Street @ 7th
  • After: Retire to local bar (TBA)
  • Contact Steve (650) 995 6329

We run mapping parties which are events where anyone can come along, we lend a GPS and show you how to go out and do some mapping and get the data in to openstreetmap. We have one coming up in Denver 19/20 July. They are informal events with no explicit time commitment and often a social element / beer afterward.

Click the link for more details.

About OpenStreetMap:

OpenStreetMap creates and provides free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them. The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive, or unexpected ways.

Maps 2.0, Google Earth, and GPS: What's New, What Works
Lucky Labrador Beer Hall

HumaniNet will present a status report on our Maps 2.0 initiative, which is exploring ready-to-use Web-based mapping tools for humanitarian and nonprofit organizations.

Dylan Myers, a digital mapping specialist at Google Maps, will also be there to answer your questions on the ever-expanding toolkit of Google Maps and Google Earth. Dylan was a key member of a Mercy Corps team that conducted a GIS (geospatial information systems) project in Indonesia following the 2004 tsunami.

Conversation ad networking begin at 5 p.m. At 6 p.m., Gregg Swanson and Matt Blair of HumaniNet will briefly discuss the initial findings of the research, which is based on interviews with aid and relief managers in Afghanistan, Sudan, Singapore, London, and – not least - Portland.

Among the topics: some notes from Matt on emerging Web 2.0 social mapping services, including the promise and pitfalls of 'crowd-sourced' geospatial data.

Following Q&A, you can meet Dylan, see demos, exchange ideas, practiceyour “geo-geek speak,” and learn more about what online maps can do for your project or organization.

The 501 Tech Club event is co-sponsored by NTEN.

WhereCamp PDX
through

"Society is being transformed by new maps and new mapping technology. Our mission is to help create a free forum for people to talk about, present, explore, and learn about projects that involve place."

What is WhereCamp PDX?

WhereCampPDX is a free unconference focusing on all things geographical and cartographical. This informal meeting of minds welcomes all geo-locative enthusiasts, anyone who asks "where am I" or feels the need to "know their place".

We share a vision of a fully transparent world where data is geographically relevant and just in time.

An unconference is a conference planned by the participants, we all convene together, plan sessions, and have break-outs into sessions. This gives everybody an opportunity to bring to the table the things that interest them the most and lets us talk about new topics that are still new and exploratory. Part of what is important to hearing new voices and getting new ideas is lowering barriers to participation - this event is free and it is driven by the participants.

What kinds of people and topics will be discussed?

This event is community driven and is what you make it. It provide cross pollination between many different kinds of folks from all walks of life. Topics may include remote sensing, geoinformatics, forestry and agriculture, food chain transparency, civil engineering, emergency disaster relief, urban planning, local search, context awareness, place hacking, social cartography, citizen journalism, locative gaming, psychogeography, locative art, and beyond. Expect to participate in conversations on the nature of place as described in pixels, with rays, on paper, and by social practice!

Women in GIS Happy Hour
Produce Row Cafe

Women In GIS (WIGIS) is a network of people sharing ideas, experiences, and resources to promote geographic inquiry and support women working in GIS and related fields. WIGIS is a Special Interest Group of the Oregon and Southwest Washington Chapter of URISA.

Several WIGIS members (including a local social media guru) have been brainstorming about new directions for WIGIS that include expanding our network, opening channels of information, and more actively encouraging participation from all members. We're thinking Twitter, Facebook, a wiki page perhaps.

We invite you to join us for Happy Hour on September 30, where we hope to continue discussions in this vein. Please come if you want to bounce around ideas, learn more about social media, or just get to know other local folks who share an interest in GIS. All are welcome.

Portland R User Group Meeting
OHSU Center for Health & Healing

OHSU Center for Health & Healing Room 3171 (Conference Room 1A) (location details at end)

==============================================

Main talk: "Spatial Analysis with R" Ben Stabler

Lightning talk: "R Therapy" Everyone

Social hour (following talks): Le Hana Japanese Bar & Grill 3500 SW River Parkway

==============================================

Talk descriptions:

"Spatial Analysis with R"

Ben will share some recent work he did using R for spatial data visualization. He will discuss how to read shapefiles and rasters into R, how to join and process data related to those shapes, and how to generate dynamic animated map products.

"R Therapy"

Do you have a problem that you are trying to solve with R that you just can't get to work? A model you can't seem to specify? A graph you can't tweak? A dataset you can't tame? An interface you can't bridge? A bug you can't trap? Well, try some group theRapy.

Bring your laptop, problem, and/or dataset and we will try to tackle the problems you are having as a group. If there are multiple problems, we can break into smaller groups. Don't have any current unresolved problems of your own? Then maybe you can help someone else, or at least learn from their problems before they are yours.

==============================================

Speaker bios:

Ben Stabler is a Supervising Modeler at Parsons Brinckerhoff. Parsons Brinckerhoff "provides strategic consulting, planning, engineering, and program and construction management services to both public and private sector clients ... in multiple market sectors, including transportation, power, buildings/facilities, water/wastewater, environmental, and urban/community development."

Hey everyone, The January gathering of the open source GIS group is on for 6:30-8pm at Open Sourcery on Jan. 26. Hope you all had a great holiday. The meeting is byob but we usually wander to a nearby watering hole afterwards.

  • MapBox - creating custom maps in the cloud. Sara is bringing someone involved with its development to show some things off. I've been interested in their mb-tiles standard and tools for supporting offline maps for a while.

  • GeoNode - version 1.0 of this platform is out from the OpenGeo folks and it's starting to pick up steam. An intriguing blend of Geoserver, GeoNetwork, GeoExt and OpenLayers with a thick layer of Django to hold it all together. A legitimate open-source SDI solution is evolving...

  • Becoming an official OSGEO chapter, the quest continues

  • FOSS4G 2011 in Denver. Sep 12-16. You're going right? Call for presentations opens in Feb!

ORURISA GIS in Action
through Portland State University

This is the Nineteenth annual conference hosted by the Columbia Region of the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS), the Oregon-Southwest Washington Chapter of the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) and Portland State University (PSU). Each year, ASPRS and URISA collaborate to hold this informational conference on current issues in the Geospatial Information Community. The Portland State University Geology Department will join us again this year to host the conference at the PSU campus. Last year’s conference at PSU was a great success. Join us again this year for what will be another successful opportunity to meet colleagues in the geospatial industries and organizations, to learn about emerging topics and recent advances in GIS applications and to discuss our problems and solutions together. This event features a one-fee, two day format, packed with information presented in concurrently running workshops and sessions on both days. There will be three tracks each day consisting of panel discussions debating hot topics, traditional sessions with 2-3 presentations per session and technical workshops providing in-depth discussion of issues and training in applications most relevant to the geospatial community.

On-site registration opens at 7:30AM on Tuesday, March 29th and will remain open through 11:00AM on Wednesday March 30th

The conference opens at 8:30AM on Tuesday with an opening address by Jim Geringer, former Governor of Wyoming and will be followed by concurrent sessions and workshops .

PDX Open Source GIS Unconference Day One
through Portland State University (PSU) - Smith Memorial Center

Tickets here: http://pdxgeounconference11.eventbrite.com/

This is a free Open Source Geospatial Unconference put on by the Portland OSGeo User Group. The unconference takes place the day after the GIS in Action conference and is registration is free (though we request you sign up for a ticket here to assist us in planning). The unconference will begin with registration at 9:00am and end at 5:00pm.

WhereCampPDX 2011
Metro Regional Center

WhereCampPDX is a free unconference focusing on all things geographical. This informal meeting of minds welcomes all geo-locative enthusiasts, anyone who asks “where am I” or feels the need to “know their place”.

An unconference is a conference planned by the participants, we all convene together, plan sessions, and have break-outs into sessions. This gives everybody an opportunity to bring to the table the things that interest them the most and lets us talk about new topics that are still new and exploratory. Part of what is important to hearing new voices and getting new ideas is lowering barriers to participation – this event is free and it is driven by the participants.

Collective Agency

We meet the 4th Wednesday of every month at the Collective Agency in NW Portland (Old Town). No need to RSVP, all are welcome - our group ranges from the geo-curious to the überhackers. Beer at nearby pub to follow, probably Pints.

Two talks this month, jam-packed with mapping goodness:

When Google Maps Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade - Wm Leler - @wmleler

Google Maps has long been the choice for embedding maps on your website, or building map mashups. But Google's recent announcement that they will start charging for maps (or including ads on maps) has people looking at other options. As an added bonus, many of the alternative solutions have significant advantages over Google Maps. If you are a website owner with an embedded simple map, this talk will show you how you can dump Google Maps and switch over to other solutions in minutes (both free and paid). If you are a web designer, you'll see how you can customize maps so they will look the way you want them to look, not the way Google wants them to look. If you are a programmer building map-based webapps, you'll see how open source mapping APIs like Leaflet and Modest Maps make it faster and easier to build map mashups and have them work the way you want.

Bio - Wm is a principal engineer at Flightstats, where he draws lots of airplanes, airports, weather, and other things on maps, and a Fellow at the Banff Centre for the Arts, where he has worked with some amazing artists on web-based, virtual reality, and location-based mobile projects

MapBox - Justin Miller - @incanus77.

Justin is all things iOS for the MapBox team. He'll be joining us again to show us what MapBox has been up to lately (and they've been busy) including their strategy in the Google Maps space, their new iOS SDK, MapBox streets layer, custom styled maps, what Artem from Mapnik is doing now that he's joined the team and what they're doing with open source in general. Something for everyone and a great follow-up to Wm's talk.

Bio - Justin brings a wealth of mobile application development experience to MapBox. He has expertise in client-side programming on the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, as well as server-side programming and administration on UNIX platforms.

This month: CartoDB Hack Session

this month we don't have a talk lined up so we thought we would shake things up a little bit and do a little hack session as a group with one of the newer kids on the block, CartoDB. It's data management, map styling/publishing and an API for vector/raster spatial queries all rolled into one without needing to muck with server management. A researchers dream and built on open source goodness. What's that you say you're not a software developer? Perfect because you don't need to be to get started. We can roll up our sleeves and work together, ask lots of silly questions and learn lots of new things.

They offer a free account and tutorial to get started. Should be fun, see you tomorrow.

Come Celebrate our new Office!

After Portland startup Geoloqi joined Esri in 2012, our office has grown from 6 to 20 people and our current space didn't fit everyone! This year, we found an awesome new space downtown and moved into a new, permanent location. Now that we're all settled into our new space, we'd love to invite you to join us in celebrating growth, community and all things geo! We'll have Legos, toys, and even a custom-built Settler's of Catan board for you to play! Feel free to bring other board games if you'd like.

RSVP!

RSVP on EventBrite so we can make sure we have enough drinks and light snacks (gluten free) for everyone! We are using Eventbrite to track RSVPs, if you know you are coming please reserve a ticket! In addition to celebrating Esri R&D Center Portland's new office, we will be celebrating Geoloqi's 4th year anniversary, as well as both Amber Case's and Patrick Arlt's birthday!

Who is invited?

The entire Portland tech community is invited, as well as friends and family of the Esri R&D Center team!

We have all of you to thank for helping us get where we are today. Special thanks to TiE, PIE, PSF, PDC for funding us, providing mentorship and being patient with our crazy vision this entire time. It's been 4 years since Geoloqi started, and almost 2 since we've been a part of Esri!

In town for Write the Docs, Monitorama or Webvisions? Feel free to join us as well!

Programming Open Source Web Spatio-Temporal Mapping Visualizations
Anna Bannanas Cafe, St Johns

This month at MaptimeStJohns, we will begin programming a basic web spatio-temporal visualization, bring a computer if you have one. Ill bring the js library files for leaflet and the various plugins we will be using. If you have a temporal dataset, bring it... Ill have a couple of datasets to choose from though. Our goal will be for everyone to create at least one temporal point visualizations. An example would be the point locations of where floods occurred with the location, size of flood and date of flood event. With this data we could create a temporal proportional symbol map. The user will be able to click on the locations for specific locations and also use a slider to see when and where floods occurred over time. Let's create some cool web map visualizations!

OSGeo-PDX monthly meeting
Portland State University Cramer Hall - room 409

Monthly meeting of the open source GIS group PDX-OSGeo.

Discussion of all things spatial and open source. Tonight's guest is Dave Mangold, who will speak to us about how to create great cartographic products using QGIS and Inkscape.

Attendees of FOSS4G will remember the excellent map that Dave produced for the printed program [1].

From Dave's Description of his map:

This map was created entirely from freely available data and open-source software. Data were obtained as shapefile downloads from METRO RLIS. These shapefiles were then loaded into a PostGIS database as spatial tables. The initial map was created in QGIS. This map was then saved in a vector format and finished in InkScape, where label adjustment and creation, feature layering, and annotation were accomplished. On the map, if you look closely at the southern portion of Naito Street (right edge of left panel), you will see a hidden tribute to the free and open-source resources used.

OSGeo-PDX monthly meeting - CartoCSS and UTFGrids for collaborative mapping
Portland State University Cramer Hall - room 409

Monthly meeting of the open source GIS group PDX-OSGeo.

Discussion of all things spatial and open source. Tonight's guest is Nick Martinelli who will speak to us about using CartoCSS and UTFGrids for collaborative mapping.

From Nick's Description of the project:

Warning, this talk is about cartographers designing and building web applications. Tasked with making a mapping application for internal business use, we reached out for open source tools that could be combined to produce a platform for collaborative mapping and data sharing. We used tools like Mapbox.js, windshaft, mapnik, and PostGIS to build a web based application that allows its users to create, filter, edit, and share interactive maps and data with teams or individuals. The presentation will take you through the challenges of building on FOSS, and the importance of small group collaborative mapping. Highlights will be our efforts to use great, but occasionally sparsely documented FOSS code and tools, and the sometimes challenging chore of making them play nice together. Also, discussion of why we feel collaborative editing and creation of dynamic maps is an important future focus for web mapping applications. Last, the product we ended up with, and continue to develop for private use opens up the conversation about how to best give back to the FOSS community from the private sector.

OSGeo-PDX monthly meeting - Mapbox GL for JavaScript
Portland State University Cramer Hall - room 409

Monthly meeting of the open source GIS group PDX-OSGeo.

Discussion of all things spatial and open source. Tonight's guest is Justin Miller who will speak to us about Mapbox GL for JavaScript, "which despite being in active development, is totally usable for certain projects". The particular project he built out is a travel choropleth map with dynamic interaction-based styling, all rendered as vectors in the browser.

OSGeo-PDX monthly meeting - SpiderOSM (spiderosm.org)
Portland State University Cramer Hall - 4th floor

Monthly meeting of the open source GIS group PDX-OSGeo.

Discussion of all things spatial and open source. Tonight's guest is Katie Urey who will speak to us about SpiderOSM. Street conflation is a long time difficult problem and this is a project that looks very useful. The project gives Portland lots of attention as well.

SpiderOSM is an open source python package for matching segments in one path network, e.g., streets and trails, to corresponding segments in another, based on geography and network connectivity. This allows joining together attribute data from separate sources. Importantly authoritative jurisdictional data can be correlated with the rich, crowd-sourced, user editable and extensible, Open Street Maps data. Multifactor match scoring, allows data to be joined only for high confidence matches.

The initial version of the matcher was coded in early 2014 specifically to combine Open Street Map data with Portland Oregon area jurisdictional data (RLIS) to facilitate pedestrian infrastructure analysis and planning. Since then the code has been refactored into a generally useful python package that installs, via pip, and works on all three major platforms: Mac OSX, Linux and Windows. The code is stable and mature, with version 1.0 just around the corner.

The developer, Michael Arnold, is now focusing on developing applications, and finding users and collaborators. On going projects where help would be very welcome include:

  1. The Portland Area Mismatched Name Survery (looking at name mismatches between OSM and RLIS identified by SpiderOSM.) Some folks at TriMet and others at PDOT have begun this project, but there is ALOT to be done!

  2. A QGIS Plug-in for spiderOSM. Ryan Peterson has recently begun this project, and would welcome help.

  3. Help getting the word out: publicizing spiderOSM online and at appropriate events. Alternately, advice and encouragement in this process. :)

Another opportunity, not yet begun: looking for someone interested in developing an ESRI Plug-in for spiderOSM.

Nepal Earthquake HOTOSM Mapathon
Esri Portland R&D Center

Calling all mappers! There will be a group at the Esri Portland office this Friday evening helping with the Humanitarian OSM mapping efforts for the Nepal earthquake crisis.

Prior experience mapping, particularly in OpenStreetMap, is highly recommended and you will need your own laptop. Beginners are welcome to come, but we may have you run through some tutorials to get up to speed rather than work on the Nepal data.

Thank you Esri Portland for providing space!
