March Meetup: Map Artistry and Design

The March GeoNYC meetup will dive into the artistry of maps as data visualization tools.  The creators will explain how design and artistry factors into their decision process.  We'll start at 7pm with socializing and drinks (!!) with 15 minute talks getting underway promptly at 7:30pm.

Here's a look at our current line-up:

James Boehmer of the NYTimes will present a new visualization tool for print archives that georeferences high resolution scans using Geoserver to serve and cache tiles. Users are abel to interact with content on the printed page, and navigate it like a web map.

Javier de la Torre, of Vizzuliaty will present a visual analysis of credit card transations before and during the Mobile World Congress 2012. The map helps reveal the economic impact on the city.

Ingrid Burrington, artist http://lifewinning.com/

Sean Barkulis, co-founder of uplanme, will unveil a new hackathon challenge coordinated with the City of New York.  The real city.

If you tackle with big questions of geospatial data design, send a message through the meetup.

GeoNYC meets on the second Monday of the month to gather in an open, friendly, educational salon of geospatial ideas and projects. We bring together enthusiasts, users, and developers interested in the technical and social aspects of maps.  For updates, join our meetup group here or follow us on Twitter at #geonyc and @geonyc

    I think we'll be sticking to Mondays for consistency but we are going to try recording the presentations so others can participate from afar. More on that in the coming months!

    So bummed to have missed it! Any chance of having a Meetup on a Tuesday or Thursday at some point? Perhaps alternate between a Monday and Tuesday? I always teach on Mons/Weds but would love to be involved.

    Great presentation by Javier de la Torre, and (most of) the who's who of mapping and data visualization in NYC. I'm glad we were all able to fit in the same room and have a beer. Thanks to everyone who made this happen.

    Great turnout with lots of interesting conversation on and off the stage. The range of presentations from archiving nytimes articles to artistic mapping of craigslist were great complements.

    Excited! I'm working on an online engagement map to get people excited about fresh water issues. I'm thinking of using TileMill/Mapbox. Thoughts? Also, does anyone know CartoCSS or Javascript, and have a desire to help out/point me in the right direction? Thanks!
