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.

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.

WhereCampPDX 2009: Sessions
Metro Regional Center

IMPORTANT: Please add yourself as an attendee for the unconference so we can plan accordingly.

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.

PDX Open Source Geospatial User Group
OpenSourcery

Monthly gathering of the Portland Open Source GIS user group. All are welcome to learn and share.

Parking is limited, but mass-transit is ample.

This month we're discussing the upcoming GIS in Action conference that has moved to a new venue at Portland State University. There are opportunities to present there.

Tentatively, there will be an introduction to GeoDjango along with some application demos. We'll then adjourn to a local boozery around 8 for more co-conspiring.

You can find out more and sign up for announcements by joining the google group pdx-osgis.

CrisisCamp Strategy Session and OSM Editing for Sendai, Japan
Coalition Brewing

While there are many CrisisCamps around the globe for the Japanese relief effort, we will be having a small strategy session this Saturday to plan for a larger CrisisCamp track at the PDXOSGIS Unconference and Hackathon at the end of March. Some things we'll need to discuss are data sources, taxonomy (OSM presets for humanitarian relief), and coordination. There will be some editing so bring a laptop and be familiar with OSM (plenty of videos).

WhereCampPDX 5 Kickoff Party
Esri R&D Center (aka Geoloqi HQ)

IMPORTANT: Please register for FREE at http://wherecamppdx5.eventbrite.com/

Join us for the Fifth Annual WhereCampPDX Kickoff Party this Friday at Geoloqi HQ. Beers and banter will be provided. With the growing numbers of geonerds this weekend, we're hoping to acquire more space just downstairs at either Lotus Room or Nedspace. Watch this space for details.

WhereCampPDX is a free, volunteer-created unconference for anyone interested in geography and technology. This year’s event will be happening October 12th-14th, with a full day of unconference sessions at Metro Regional Center on the 13th.

An unconference is a conference planned by the participants. We convene together, plan sessions, and break-out into the proposed session discussions and activities. This gives everyone an opportunity to bring to the table the things that interest them the most, and talk about emerging topics that are still new and exploratory. We value open participation, providing access to new voices, and lowering barriers to participation. As a result, the event is driven by the interests and talents of the participants.

To attend, you'll need to be signed up at http://wherecamppdx5.eventbrite.com/ by the party time!

Cityscope presents Detour/Dérive
Dealers Supply Parcel 1 North

Six participants will present their findings from Detour/Dérive, an urban experiment presented by Project Cityscope, the non-profit organization of Works Partnership Architecture. The participants have engaged in separate walks by choosing a bus line to ride and getting off at a stop or stops they find intriguing. The task was to walk, document/record, and reflect within a 24-hour period. The aim of this project is to explore, project, and/or (mis)interpret narratives of the city that do not occur to us as critical to the urban landscape.

MaptimeStJohns
Anna Bannanas Cafe, St Johns

Tonight at MaptimeStJohns, we will review some compiled leaflet maps using several of the leaflet pluggins. We will go through some live custom examples using humangeo's dvf pluggin, we will use postgis and output geojson, geocsv and topojson to add to our leaflet maps, and also discuss some temporal mapping tools.

Bring your laptop with leaflet installed and a webserver available. Have a server scripting language such as php or python and postgressql/postgis installed. If you don't have a laptop, come anyway and you will be able to see these tools in action, as well as receive any materials handed out at the meetup. Bring a flash drive so you can take a copy of the data home.

LET'S GET TOGETHER AND MAP AT MAPTIMESTJOHNS!

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!

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

Programming Open Source Web Spatio-Temporal Mapping Visualizations, MapTimeStJohns, Tue, July 29, 7:30pm to 9:00pm, Anna Bannanas coffee shop, 8716 N Lombard St, Portland. Let's get together and map :) (We meet in the back room)

In June, we worked on creating a basic static map of floods with custom icons showing the size of the floods (a proportional symbol flood map). We went through a demo for using a slider to add amimation to a map... using the flood data it would allow users to see where and when the floods appeared.

In July, I'll bring a completed example of a proportional symbol animated slider flood map that we will review. In addition, we will add one or two other techniques for developing spatio-temporal web visualizations (in leaflet and open layers). Then we will begin using Postgresql/postgis to setup spatial databases, populate them and perform spatial analysis operations.One of our long term goals will be to eventually use data from a spatial database in dynamic spatio-temporal visualizations.

In July, bring your computer. If you have time prior to the meeting, load postgresql/postgis version 9.1 or later onto your computer.
