Le résumé below the fold


This was my first time presenting at the State of the Map US, April 12-13. This is the conferecnce of OpenStreetMap users. I loved the whole conference because it's a mix of users, developers, practitioners, nonprofits, and researchers. That amount of diversity meant there was little academese, which was a wonderful break from previous conferences. I presented on Open data and the City. Here's the video from the talk.

Geothink at the AAG

Our Geothink grant held two sessions at the Annual meeting of the Association of American Geographers, April 8-12. in Tampa, Florida. They were on the wicked problem of public participation and whether the Geoweb could do anything to make participation less structural and more manageable. One nice aspect of our sessions was the inclusion of our partners, Neptis and USGS.

Me at AAG in Tampa

Had a great time at the big geography conference, this year in Tampa, FL.

We revisited the notion of warring GIS tribes that I brought up at the 2012 AAG. This time Michael Gould and I had the idea that representatives of the tribes could duke it out (in a good way, of course). Hence our 2014 panel, Battle of the Tribes: geoweb, GIS, GI Science, cyberGIS, neogeography
