Multi-Modal Navigation, Maps & The Red Cross, and Scoring Nature


Navigation All the Way There

Current navigation products fail to stay with a user on his complete journey. The main reasons: many modes of travel - foot, car, bus, train, taxi, plane; many new modes coming - electric cars, robotic cars, dynamic carpooling; and many different contexts of travel - parking, walking through stores and airports. Providing maps to wide-roaming travelers is also hard. We’ll consider the problems and possible solutions.

Presented by:

Ron Gutman, Geospatial Architect, Telenav

Ron has 15+ years experience developing mapping and navigation technology at Etak, Informix, Airflash, Location Labs (formerly Wavemarket), Yahoo, and Telenav. Patents and publications includes one key paper on route calculation.


How the Red Cross Uses Mapping to Manage Relief Efforts

Types of data that is used in a disaster relief effort will be discussed as well as some of the current limitations that are being worked around.

Presented by:

Karl Matzke, Red Cross, Silicon Valley Chapter, Mass Care Lead

Karl is a national Red Cross Mass Care manager and a leader in the local Silicon Valley Chapter of the Red Cross.


Street Nature Score

Presenting the Street Nature Score site, which helps people value urban nature by measuring it. Also soliciting help on expanding the site with more data.

Presented by:

Jeremy Faludi, Faludi Design and UC Berkeley

Jeremy is a sustainable design strategist. He is co-author of the Autodesk Sustainability Workshop and has contributed to six books on sustainability, as well as teaching sustainable design at Stanford and other universities.

    Oct 31 "Halloween" would probably be difficult for those with kids, so I hope a different day is chosen.
