Geographers, map lovers, spatial people... we are proud to present the fully packed end of the year edition of our Meetup: Jump Around!

#When? December 4th | Wednesday | 7pm , 19.00 !!!
#Where? HERE office, Invalidenstraße 116, 10115 Berlin
#Drinks: Thanks to HERE!

#Oliver Fink – “Uploading, editing, styling, publishing geodata with HERE XYZ and QGIS”

#Sebastian Zickau: "Roads? Where we are going, we don't need roads. Applied privacy-preserving geofencing with arbitrary shapes." (20min): The presentation will be about two main points. How can I encode an arbitrary shaped geofence. What kind of mechanisms are there to efficiently verify that a position is within this geofence or not in a location privacy-preserving way. The talk will give an overview of different, sometimes academic, approaches.

#Dinu German: "Ipymaps: Wikidata on a map" (10 min): In this short talk I will show a private work-in-progress project of mine taking a leaflet map and adding custom search capabilities to it like you won't get from big mapping players like Google and friends. These include search queries retrieving data from OSM and Wikidata. All this is shown inside Jupyter notebooks and in combination with Voilà dashboards.

#Wolfgang Schwanghart: TopoToolbox' 10th birthday... time to look back" (10min): TopoToolbox for Matlab provides a set of functions that support the analysis of relief and flow pathways in digital elevation models. Despite its 10th birthday I would like to talk about the motivation behind and the future of this OpenSource tool.

#Felix Delattre: HOTOSM: Open Geodata for the humanitarian use“ (20min): The OpenStreetMap project is the largest database of geospatial information. The project has so far allowed over one million people to create a global digital map together. This means that particularly vulnerable locations can be mapped and the data used by relief organizations and state aid organizations. The talk will give an insight on how OpenStreetMap and open source solutions can be used for humanitarian purposes.
