GeoMeetup - Member Show & Tell GeoPresentations

It is about time we did another one of these!

Last year, we did a User Presentation meeting where people showed the projects they had been working on. It was great. So let's repeat that!

 

People can get a short period time (divided among the presenters) to show a project they have been working. The simple rule is that this is not a platform for people to pitch their startup (there are other venues for that), but a way for you to explain some cool geo-related technology/side project.

 

Currently we have presentation for the following topics:

- Data Visualization for Sacramento San Joaquin Bay Delta (Amye Osti)

- Recent Explorations in Dynamic Mapping (Sha Hwang)

SFMTA Realtime Monitoring (Zach Erbe)

Tracking deforestation in near real time using free NASA data and Hadoop (Robin Kraft)

 

 

If you have a presentation - side project - you would like to show, please send me some info so we can add you to the list.

    There was a diversity in the presentations showing how geographic data can improve our understanding of local and global processes. I look forward to more but I also see there was some want to dig a bit deeper; to discuss techniques and share lessons learned that may be of help to those in the audience and even to those presenting.

    Tamara, not sure what you mean by boundaries. But a simple bounding box with min_lon, min_lat, max_lon, max_lat might help. When I read a GTFS file I have been sorting first by lat then by lon. I have a simple algorithm to find the closest stop but it is slower than O(log n) since I have to search O(n) left and right once I find the closest by lat.

    What do mean by boundries?

    If there is time, I would like to discuss current methods for creating boundaries using user points/nodes or third party data sets.

    In case theres a good Wifi connex there & someone has a laptop with a webcam (both pretty high probability) could you create a ustream account (free), click "Go Live" topright and then "Start Broadcast" button and then post a message here with the channelname (you can pick) ? Thats free and minus a few audience side advertisements quite usable ! ( I wish meetup already had this "remote attendee" function integrated...)

    Can't make it, but I would love to see Zach's presentation. I am currently developing GTFS Read n Show for VTA here in Santa Clara. Real-time tracking is a dream of mine for now that would be awesome to implement.

    Wasn't planning to, but it may be a good idea

    Quick question - is this going to be livestreamed - I am under time constraints but would love to be able to see the demos...Perhaps someone can point their webcam at the speakers & UStream or Qik ?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
