Communications, such as press, presentations, and outreach materials.
We presented the New California Water Atlas at the UC Berkeley Geospatial Innovation Facility to a group about about 30 mappers.
We talked about using open data and open government strategies to improve citizen’s understanding of our natural resources. Was a great group of people and they asked hard questions about water pricing and obfuscated data.
Notes from our Birds of a Feather session. Transcribed (as best as I could) by Chach Sikes
not wanting to do any kinds of mass imports
- no good datasets of amazon river basin -- idea to trace into OSM -- has big gaps & stuff missing - interested in how modeled in OSM - what kind of metadata? -- how to extract it and use in different ways -- has been cleaning up data & making detailed river networks -- is ism a good way to do it & how? what's best data model
We went to the State of the Map US 2013 conference this weekend in San Francisco.
This is the annual conference for the Open Street Map project (OSM)
We (myself and Laci) attended this conference because we view Open Street Map as an important project with a lot of potential for how we can improve public understanding of water in California.
