Thanks to Jonathan Meyer and James Bridgers for volunteering to speak at our November event! Come enjoy great content from our speakers plus we'll have some more JetBrains licenses to raffle off! Also, this will be the first meetup in our spacious new conference room. The RSVP limit has been upped by 10, so tell a buddy, bring a friend!

- 11:30am: Pizza, Sponsors, and Announcements

- 12:00pm: Image Mosaics via Web Map Service - Jonathan Meyer will show us how to expose thousands of geo-referenced images with the ability to constrain the mosaic by temporal, spatial, and/or custom attributes. He will walk through a quick setup of GeoServer and how to configure a sample mosaic.

- 12:30pm: Road Aid - James Bridgers will discuss Road-Aid, his automated pothole detection software. Road-Aid is a creating an automated, collection system solely focused on pothole analytics. The initial prototype is developed on a Raspberry Pi. He will discuss the opportunity to participate in an alpha release (limited pilot) this winter (2015/2016) as Dayton's potholes become inventoried and available for drivers and the government to fix.

- 1:00pm: End

The Dayton Data Visualization group will meet quarterly unless I get enough volunteers to make it happen more frequently. Please volunteer to share a topic with the group! What makes a good presentation topic for DDV? Here are some ideas:

- Case Studies - Show us how you made a cool visualization or infographic

- Development Tips - Show us how to use a cool new tool or framework

- Benchmarks - Comparisons between tools or frameworks

- Data Mining - Show us how you mine/retrieve data to use in your visualizations

- Optimization - Show us how you optimize your visualizations for performance on the web and mobile devices

Presentations are only twenty minutes long. This is to lower the barrier of entry for new speakers and to make the talks less of a time commitment from the speakers (and audience). Keep them short, sweet, and specific.
