OpenSourcery

Meeting agenda: - TBD

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!

Red Hat Map Hack!
through PIE: Portland Incubator Experiment

Design, hack and field test locally focused civic geo mobile applications! Anyone at any skill level can come learn how to make mobile apps. We will design and code all night and then go out in the morning and field test the apps.

Examples of what will be built/improved:

  • CatMapper - geolocate cats: code, screenshot, video blog. You can learn how to fork CatMapper and repurpose it for other awesome use cases.
  • Geoloqi - build GPS enabled non-visual augmented reality apps! Have restaurants text message you their health inspection as you walk by them, leave geo-notes for your friends, or create GPS feeds for cats by giving them iPhones!
  • Walking Papers - Use paper and pencil to map your community! We could fork this project to work for other types of data collection

@maxogden will be in town for two days only. Come hack on crazy stuff with him!

Please RSVP via EventBrite</a so we can get an idea of how many people will be there. Food/drinks will be provided in some form or another!

PDX Open Source GIS Meeting
Collective Agency Downtown

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.

(Postponed) Esri Geo Hackathon!
through TBD - Portland

UPDATE: Due to several people on our team being out of town, we've had to postpone this event until later this year. We'll be sure to add it to calagator when we pick a new date!


We're throwing a big hackathon to showcase a bunch of new Esri tools! Come be some of the first to check out new and improved documentation, user interface and new SDKs and APIs for Esri's core technology.

New to Esri? Basically, you can do anything add any kind of geo-functionality any product or app you're working on. From maps and data, geocoding and routing, demographic data and more, you'll be able to check out and test work from Esri R&D Center Portland and Esri HQ in Redlands!

There will be plenty of free food and drink, and networking kickoff the night before. Teams will have Friday night until 6pm Sunday to build apps using Esri technology. We'll have sample code on Github and a ton of example projects. There will also be plenty of Esri devs on site to help out.

Who should attend?

Feel free to participate if you're a designer or developer, college student, professional, high school student or someone just interested in geo. Keep in mind that this is a developer hackathon, so you should arrive with at least some knowledge of HTML/CSS so that you can contribute to a team. If you don't know HTML/CSS but are a skilled graphic designer, we need you too! Think of it as a playground for trying new things out.

What kind of prizes will there be?

Prizes will be announced soon, but suffice it to say they will likely be interesting objects that fly through the air. Also, free conference tickets and Esri software credits for runner ups.

WhereCampPDX 8
Metro Regional Center

WhereCampPDX 8 is on!

Join us Saturday, October 31, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (PDT) at the Metro Regional Center 600 NE Grand, Portland, OR 97232

If you’d like to join us, please register for free: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/wherecamppdx-8-tickets-19068949742

What’s a WhereCamp?

WhereCamps connect geo-enthusiasts, developers, social place hackers, artists, activists, grad students, geographers, earth scientists and anybody else who wants to “know their place”.

Popular topics include social cartography, software and hardware, context awareness, mobile development, humanitarian mapping efforts, food webs and local food transparency, transit, psychogeography, geo games, paper maps, and place hacking.

WhereCamp is an unconference, which means it has little to no pre-selected content. Instead, the content is provided by the participants once they arrive. Everyone gathers in the morning to propose sessions and schedule them in blocks throughout the day. Sessions take many forms, from prepared talks to open discussions to running around outside with balloons. We value open participation, providing access to new voices, and lowering barriers to participation. The result is a fun event is driven by the interests and talents of the participants.

Keynote Speaker: Matthew Freid

Matthew Freid manages the Corporate GIS Program in the Bureau of Technology Services at the City of Portland. The CGIS Program provides a central repository of GIS data that is available to internal customers and external access through Portlandmaps.com. Matt will be speaking on the following topics:

Background on City of Portland Open Data efforts
What the city has been working on for the new version of Portland maps.
How the city uses API’s to access spatial and tabular data and how developers could use them as well
Plans for making more city data available as part of this effort
Work the city are doing on key datasets for the community including addresses and buildings.

How can I help?

WhereCampPDX is an all volunteer-run event. We’re just kicking off the bulk of the planning process now, and would love to have more folks scheming with us to make this the best WhereCampPDX ever. If you can lend a hand, please join our mailing list.

In order to keep WhereCampPDX free for everyone, we rely on the generous support of our sponsors. If your company is interested in supporting our efforts, please drop us a line.

Spread the word!

We’d love if it you could take a moment to tell other interested geonerds in your life about WhereCampPDX.

Some ideas:

Post to your blog!
Share your interest on Twitter, Facebook, or your favorite social network!

See you at WhereCamp!

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

pdxrlang meetup: Probabilistic Approaches to Multi-dimensional Fuzzy Joins: A GeoSpatial Example
Mozilla

Speaker: De'Mel Mojica

Abstract: This talk will be on a general approach to automatically join large-scale, geospatial data across distinct data sets, using a mix between Levenshtein Distance thresholds and Haversine Distance thresholds. This approach permits joining multiple data sets without the need to provide ad hoc normalization conventions for each data resource. In addition, this approach can be generalized beyond a geospatial field and applied any domain which requires joining across two or more non-identical dimensions.

We'll visit a local watering hole afterwards.

[1] HOWL: 3D/4D mapping and visualization of Oregon’s wildlands

The HOWL (Highlighting Oregon's WildLands) project aims to create an interactive 3D/4D mapping and visualization tool for presenting spatio-temporal information relevant to the preservation of wilderness and wildlife protection in Oregon. HOWL will be available to conservation advocates (e.g., Oregon Wild) and the general public, to improve dissemination, understanding and interpretation of multiple publicly available data sources. Candidate data sets include boundaries of current and proposed wilderness areas, wild and scenic river areas, national forests and other public lands, wildfire events, wildlife migrations, deforestation history, and satellite imagery, to name a few.

HOWL is a web application being built using CesiumJS, a powerful open source 3D mapping and visualization library, which enables incorporating not only realistic terrain modeling, but also volumetric symbols to build interactive 3D thematic maps. In addition, HOWL will leverage the temporal visualization capabilities of CesiumJS to add the 4th dimension, thus enabling dynamic playback of related past and/or predicted events. Visualizations examples include wildfire history in old growth forest areas, wildlife migration records, and deforestation chronicles.

This presentation dives into details of building HOWL by leveraging open source front-end components (e.g., CesiumJS, jQuery, Bootstrap), back-end tools (e.g., MapShaper, toGeoJson, TopoJSON, node.js) and workflows for data acquisition, transformation, and integration. The presentation addresses key design decisions, technical challenges and future developments.
