Geo Lightning Talks

Hello Geogeeks,

It has been sometime since we had "GeoMeetup Member Presentations" (aka Geo Lightning Talks). The format is simple, you get 5-10 minutes (based on availability) to present about a Geo-topic of your choice. The catch is that it needs to be interesting to the group and not a blatant sales presentation :)

If you have been working on a side geo-project or want to present on a geo-topic, please e-mail me some details.


1.- Adding Spatialite and Google Fusion Table Support to ArcMap - Ragi Burhum

2.- - Chris Reade

3.- UC Berkeley Guided Area - Timur Bazhirov

4.- Evaforge: Streaming Geotagged Video -- Bryan Galusha

5.- PostGIS 2.0 - Brian Hamlin

6.- Libspatialindex / Rtree - Howard Butler

7.- The Peirce-Quincuncial Map Projection - Chamberlain Fong

8.- Rrose: A Leaflet plugin for when autoPan : false -- Eric Theise

Beer and Pizza will be served!

Update 1: I know the list is full, please add yourself to the waiting list. People usually drop the last day to make way for everyone else.

Update 2: Talks are full and we have a location

    I've published the Rrose Leaflet plugin, the subject of my talk, on github. Examples and code available starting from

    Like others, I found this GeoMeetup exceptional. The range of things people are working on under the umbrella of 'geo' is remarkable, and I appreciate the speakers' passion, clarity, and their sticking to the allotted time.

    I stayed energized throughout the whole next day.

    Will you be doing video streaming (like ustream)? (If not, its worth considering -- useful for archiving and for people who cant make it)

    Hi Ragi! Would love to come by to present my location-based service prototype for UC Berkeley campus: and explain the idea about it. I use openstreetmaps and wikipedia to get content. Looking for interested people to team up with.
