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.

I think we're going to do a Q&A session. We want to try and keep this one a little shorter so people can go to the Deviant Cartography exhibit (just a few blocks away): http://www.meetup.com/PDX-Creative-Coders/events/221334903/

Nepal Earthquake HOTOSM Mapathon

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!

The Power of Story -- PDX OSGeo monthly meeting
Portland State University Cramer Hall - room 409

This month welcomes Tim Welch and Katie Urey who will be combining two of their favorite things - Stories and Maps. Pizza will be provided. BYOB as always.


The Power of Story

How do you tell a good story with a map? A story that’s memorable, entertaining, and paints a vivid picture that the viewer connects with. We’ll dive into two different scenarios.

Policy Advocacy

Imagine a world with zero traffic-related injuries. That’s what the Portland Vision Zero campaign wants to achieve in the next 10 years with the participation of the City of Portland, Oregon Walks, Bike Portland and other groups. With construction booming in Portland, one of the biggest concerns is construction closures which often bring together vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians in unexpected and unsafe ways. How can we utilize maps to illustrate issues like this, demonstrate alternatives, and advocate for improving policy? This project is seeking collaborators, please reach out to us.

Product Marketing

Good product presentation goes beyond the specs to tell a story that a potential customer can imagine themselves in. We can use maps to play out scenes in the real world where the viewer is the main character. Tim will present an app-based approach that’s part movie and part presentation that can be used for anything from elevator pitches to digital displays -- Toolbox: React, Mapbox GL+Studio, Turf, QGIS, OpenStreetMap, and Electron.

Presenters

Tim Welch -- @tdoubleuu, freelance web developer connecting the dots -- http://dotsconnect.us

Katie Urey -- @rbracket, GIS Geek, advocate for safe walking

Tableau is business intelligence software that allows anyone to easily connect to data, then visualize and create interactive, sharable dashboards. It's easy enough that any Excel user can learn it, but powerful enough to satisfy even the most complex analytical problems. Securely sharing your findings with others only takes seconds.

Our presenters:

Brittany Brannon of Slalom Consulting and PK Kase of Oregon Department of Transportation. Brit and PK will lead us in a hands-on knowledge-share of their work with Tableau mapping.

What to bring:

  1. Laptop

  2. Free version of Tableau Public

  3. Free Mapbox Account

Agenda

6:00 – Gather and settle in

6:10 – A few words from our groups and sponsor

6:20 – Mapping with Tableau – hands-on so bring your laptop

Tableau mapping 101

Introduction to using Mapbox with Tableau

Brief overview of using ArcGIS and Tableau

Tableau map examples

7:20 – Tableau Doctor

Great opportunity to ask any questions about mapping with Tableau!

7:40 – The best part – meet other Tableau users and map makers!

Stick around to continue the conversations started by our presentations.

We'll be heading to Pints Brewing (412 NW 5th Ave, Portland, OR 97209) afterwards for anyone that is interested.
