February Meetup: Mobile + Location

Our February meetup is all about mobile + location. Join us to see how people are using maps on mobile devices to change how people think about location. We'll have a series of 5 minute lightning talks, followed by lots of time after for Q&A, follow up conversations, and beers.

Here's our lineup so far - expect this to grow in the coming days. If you have something to talk about or demo, message us and we'll try to fit you in.

• Justin Miller and Francisco Dans, visiting DC from Portland and London respectively, will talk about tools that are integral to mobile app development. They'll talk about their approach to developing tools for iOS and Android at Mapbox, what strategies they recommend, and how developing for mobile is different from traditional web mapping.

• Diego Gómez-Deck and Manuel de la Calle from Glob3 Mobile will talk about how they develop native multi-platform mobile apps using g3m and how this framework can help to organizations get their GIS applications into mobile devices. Glob3 Mobile (g3m) is an open source framework, with source code in github.

• Victor Quinn from SocialRadar will talk about the various ways SocialRadar is using maps in its new mobile app and some ways SocialRadar provides real-time location data to its mobile app users.

As usual we'll meet at 7:00 pm at the upstairs bar at Stetsons at 16th and U Streets NW. Introductions and lightning talks will start at 7:30 pm. Stetsons is a 21 and over venue. If you're not yet 21 but want to attend, message us via meetup and we'll do our best to get you in.

GeoDC meets on the first Wednesday of the month to learn, network, and talk about the work people are doing with maps, GIS, geodata, and more. Join this meetup group, follow @Geo_DC on Twitter, and join our Google group for updates.

Do you have something you'd like to share with the group? Let us know!

    Hello,

    I'm new to mapping but just got a great dataset and am trying to map it. I could use a bit of help and think this might be the right group to ask for it.

    The data I got has about 100,000 lines with intersections like "Fourth St NW and New York Ave." I would like to convert this to lat-longs. Is there an existing tool that can help me do this so I won't have to manually enter all 100,000 lines? I am also open to writing code but am a Python novice.

    Thanks in advance,
    Beth

      You can try the Geocoding tool in ArcGIS. Not very sure if it supports intersections though, I haven't used ArcGIS for a long time.

    I'd like to do a quick demo. It's not mobile related, but it is a strategy map for a local non-profit in DC called the Pretrial Justice Institute.
