    [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.

    Portland Macintosh Users Group General Meeting

    You’ve been told to backup, backup, backup. Apple promised that Time Machine would take care of all your worries back in Leopard, but is it really taking care of all your backup needs? PMUG members talk all the time about cloning a drive, but what does that mean? And how do you protect yourself if a wolf comes and huffs, puffs, and blows your house down?

    Find out about how to do a ‘belt & suspenders’ backup strategy that will protect you as best as possible. And you might even win a copy of a backup program at a raffle.

    Come join us at the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center (Ecotrust Center), 721 NW Ninth Avenue. Question and answer hour starts at 6:30pm, with the main discussion starting around 7:30 pm and ending at 9 pm. This meeting is open to the public.

    If you find that you want to divest yourself of your old Apple hardware to make way for something new and shiny then you can bring up to 5 items to swap at the meeting.

    Building Simulation Optimization

    ***Registration required, lunch provided: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5FRNCVZ?utm_source=July+2014+BESF+Meeting+Announcement&utm_campaign=July+2014+BESF+Meeting+Announcement&utm_medium=email

    July 16th Simulation Forum

    Building Simulation Optimization for Climatic Passive Heating and Cooling Design: Advanced Materials, Workflows, and Tools

    Jeremiah Crossett, Senior Analyst, Phase Change Energy Solutions Inc. and Founder of NRGSIM Inc. and Eric Youngson, President and Founder of Succession Ecological Services (SES)

    Modern low energy buildings require innovative strategies that maintain occupant comfort while reducing energy consumption through the use of passive systems and sophisticated materials. Historically, building design has focused on active systems that increase complexity, drive costs higher, and result in environmental degradation. This presentation focuses on early load reduction that allows for smaller, more efficient mechanical systems through the optimization of building envelope design. Through the use of Pareto front analysis, designs are able to achieve optimal combinations of window, insulation, and phase change material (PCM) to achieve a desired balance between energy performance and cost objectives for various climate zones.

    New tools developed in part by the presenters will be demonstrated using the jE+ EA cloud optimization Energy Plus shell, the "Eppy" Python scripting package, and a custom version of Energy Plus with enhanced PCM features. In addition, a brief demonstration of the NRGSIM web based energy modeling application will be provided.

    [Free] Build your First Mobile App in One Day with HTML5, jQuery, PhoneGap Usergrid - Portland!

    Join us for a free one-day training course to learn everything you need to know to build your first mobile app — with HTML5+PhoneGap+jQuery+Usergrid! As taken by over 3,000 people in San Francisco, New York, Austin, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Seattle and more! The classes are completely free (and all the software services we’ll be using are too — most of them are even open-source)  

      This class will teach you everything you need to build a mobile app for iOS or Android – as well as Windows Phone, Blackberry or a mobile browser. In addition to reviewing important mobile features of HTML5 and Javascript, you will also learn how to use a mobile UI framework (jQuery Mobile), how to add app features with a Backend-as-a-Service (open-source Usergrid) and how to deploy your app to devices natively using PhoneGap. By the end of the workshop, we will have built a fully-featured app, ready for release on the app store, without having written a single line of server-side code!

    Pre-requisites

    A laptop: minimum OS requirements are Mac OS X 10.5.8, Windows XP, or any linux that supports JDK6 Basic understanding of HTML CSS and some programming experience (ideally in JavaScript and jQuery, but not  necessarily): it may be useful for you to go through the following Codecademy lessons to brush up before you attend: classes 1–3 of the Web course, classes 1–6 of the JavaScript course and classes 1–5 of the jQuery course. A working install of PhoneGap/Cordova. Please download PhoneGap and complete the “Platform Guide” for your preferred platform (iOS, Android, etc.) ahead of the class.

    Schedule

    8:30am: Doors open — registration and coffee Intro HTML5 and Mobile Apps Building a mobile user interface with jQuery Mobile Loading live data into your app (Usergrid) noon: Lunch break (provided by Apigee) Writing live data from your app Package and launch your app natively on iOS or Android with PhoneGap Using advanced features like geolocation 4pm: Q and drinkup!

    PDX Open Source GIS Meeting

    We meet the 3rd Wednesday of every month at several locations usually 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.

    This month: Geo-evening of beer and hacking on the terrace

    This month is casual fun in the sun and we'll see where it goes. OSCON attendees are welcome to join us and tell tales of mapping adventures. If it's too sunny up on the terrace we can grab tables down on the back patio.

    Should be fun, see you tomorrow.

    Google MashUp in Portland: Map Maker & Places

    Google Map Maker is a web application that enables individuals to add and edit details on Google Maps. These edits, once reviewed for accuracy, go live on Google Maps and Google Earth, including mobile versions, for millions of people to see... in your community and beyond.

    Google Places is a local recommendation engine that helps connect people with places they like based on their personal tastes.

    The Google Map Maker Team and the Google Places Team are having a joint event at Ecotrust on Thursday, September 1st, from 6:00PM - 9:00PM. This event will include an interactive Map Maker workshop (“MapUp”) and a demonstration on how to provide quality reviews for establishments in and around the Portland Area. Come learn about Map Maker and Places, ask questions, make some edits, review some places, and learn how these applications can help your community. We'll also have some delicious snacks and prizes.

    PRIZES: We'll be giving out Map Maker t-shirts for those who map, and Google Places will announce a chance for you to win a Chromebook.

    RSVP is required at this website: http://goo.gl/luJr7

    Some important details: - INVITE OTHERS & RSVP: This event is by reservation only, please RSVP and feel free to pass the invitation along to others. - BRING A LAPTOP: this is a workshop, not a long boring presentation. A big chunk of the time will involve everyone mapping together and using Google Places.

    Portland Macintosh Users featuring Jean MacDonald

    PMUG General Meeting starts with Q&A on Macintosh and iOS topics.

    FEATURED PRESENTATION: Online Marketing for Small Business: You Are The Expert

    Among all the challenges of running your small business, marketing is one of the most daunting. It’s easy to waste time and money on strategies that don’t grow your business. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of expert advice available, and you may even be tempted to hire an expert. In fact, no one has more expertise than you when it comes to marketing your business.

    This session will cover the basics of getting started in online marketing with a focus on finding a mix of online marketing activities that will be most most beneficial to your business–and won’t waste your scarce time and resources. We’ll look at search engine optimization, pay-per-click advertising, email marketing and social media campaigns. You’ll get an overview of the basics and be able to ask questions specific to your business during the Q&A.

    SAO: Upcoming Climate Proposals --- Canceled?

    I think this event was cancel as it doesn't show up on either EcoTrust's site or SAO.org.

    Rescheduled from December '08

    When: January 23, 2009 - 8:30am-10:30am Where: Ecotrust Building

    Cost: free to attend - please RSVP!

    Presented by Climate Solutions, NEBC, Renewable Northwest Projects and the Software Association of Oregon

    This year is presents a historic opportunity for Oregon to enact climate change policy. Governor Kulongoskib has recommended a significant package of climate bill for the 2009 legislative session. The Bills focus on energy efficiency, creating carbon markets, creating new funding and incentives for renewables such as solar, energy efficiency and new clean transportation infrastructure and incentives. We believe that it can drive economic opportunities for many of our members. We would like to give you an opportunity to learn more about it and get involved if you are interested. Creating a "smart grid" to save energy creates new opportunities for the software industry.

    We are working with a local group, Climate Solutions, that works to find practical and profitable solutions to climate change. They are part of an organized campaign to pass the legislation. Climate Solutions is engaged in organizing business community support. We would like to invite you to a meeting to learn about the Governor's Climate change package and what the business community can do to get involved. We will have speakers to talk about the details of the package and we will also discuss the business campaign that we are organizing to support the Governor.

    At this meeting, we will have speakers to explain the Climate Package, the business case and the how you can get involved.

    Presenters Brian Shipley, Deputy Chief of Staff Gregg Small, Climate Solutions Lisa Adatto, Climate Solutions Jake, Weigler, Healthy Climate Partnership

    Connectipedia Public Launch

    Like many foundations, MMT has been building a "knowledge management" system to archive information in an accessible way to help us be the best grantmakers we can be. But we've been approaching this task with a bigger end in mind.

    Why, we asked ourselves, would we set up a system that only MMT could use when the need for good information is shared by other foundations... and nonprofit organizations and public agencies and official decision makers and citizen volunteers and... in fact, everyone working for the common good?? Wouldn't that be a smarter investment for us to make?

    What if there was a place where we could all exchange what we learn as we go about our daily business? What if nonprofits could see the data and information that foundations use in their due diligence process? What if organizations and people could easily determine which foundations' interests match their project goals? What if foundations could quickly see what groups are working on an issue they are investigating? And so on...

    Well, we are building such a place. A place where people and organizations can connect about subjects and places. A place called connectipedia...

    Want to know more? Want to see connectipedia in action? Want to find out how you can be part of all this? Attend the public launch event at:

    2 - 3:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 10 Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center aka Ecotrust (second floor conference center) 721 NW Ninth Ave. Portland OR 97209

    We would love you to be part of this event and celebration. Several renowned geeks will be there! We're not requiring folks to register, but if you plan to attend, please send a quick rsvp email to [email protected].

    If you can't make it to Ecotrust, you can still witness the launch. We plan to record the event so anyone in our corner of the world can make time for connectipedia. (More details about watching it remotely to come.)

    After June 10th, connectipedia will be open for business!

    Collaborative Ingenuity * MOVED TO ECOTRUST *

    Collaborative Ingenuity is a free for all forum that lets everyone come to work on any project of his/her choosing that day—with an underwritten agreement that each participant must agree to help everyone to the best of their ability.

    While this concept is comparable to co-working, the fact that we have everybody from graphic designer, web developer to account planner (we're looking for more diversity) means that everyone will benefit from having feedbacks from folks who are experts in other things. So the designer's print ad will benefit from the planner's research ability, the planner's website analysis would benefit from the developer's expertise, etc.

    Collaborative Ingenuity relies on the fact that new ideas are always born, and sparks always fly when different fields of knowledge intersect and help each other.
