September Meetup: Mobile Mapping

We'll meet on Wednesday, September 5 at 7:00 pm at the upstairs bar at Stetson's. This month we'll have several lightning talks around mobile mapping, specifically around mobile data collection strategies and tools and what recent changes to Apple's maps and their now missing public transit maps means for apps that help you get around. Here's a look at the current lineup:

  • Bonnie Stayer fromEsriwill show how to leverage its cloud and mobile solutions to take your maps anywhere, and collect data on the go.
  • Brian Boyer, news applications editor at NPR, will talk about the technology and design challenges encountered when making their recentFire Forecast mobile app.
  • Coleman McCormick from Spatial Networkswill show how they build smartphone apps for data collection, mobile mapping, and the thought process behind designing for simplicity and using connected devices in disconnected environments.
  • Zaid Al-Timimi, developer of The Mashup App, will talk about the nuts and bolts of Apple's new mapping strategy, discuss new opportunities with Apple maps in both iOS 6 and on the web, and talk about how to port from Google Maps to Apple map.
  • Jessica Heinzelman and Brody Dittemore will talk about how DAI, a large international development agency, does mobile data collection.

Geo DC meets on the first Wednesday of every month. If you're interested in geography, mapping, GIS, and anything geo, join us to meet like minded folks, hear what people are doing in this space, and learn about some awesome projects and technologies in the geo field.

    This was my second GeoDC Meetup and I'm so glad I returned. The presentations were informative and fascinating glimpses into the topics. Thanks so much to the presenters for sharing their information and to the coordinators for bringing them to us.
