Women in GIS Happy Hour
Produce Row Cafe

Women In GIS (WIGIS) is a network of people sharing ideas, experiences, and resources to promote geographic inquiry and support women working in GIS and related fields. WIGIS is a Special Interest Group of the Oregon and Southwest Washington Chapter of URISA.

Several WIGIS members (including a local social media guru) have been brainstorming about new directions for WIGIS that include expanding our network, opening channels of information, and more actively encouraging participation from all members. We're thinking Twitter, Facebook, a wiki page perhaps.

We invite you to join us for Happy Hour on September 30, where we hope to continue discussions in this vein. Please come if you want to bounce around ideas, learn more about social media, or just get to know other local folks who share an interest in GIS. All are welcome.

  • Marcelle Caturia, Sarah Beecroft, Christina Friedle, Justin Houk, Molly Vogt

Meeting agenda: - TBD

Hey everyone, The January gathering of the open source GIS group is on for 6:30-8pm at Open Sourcery on Jan. 26. Hope you all had a great holiday. The meeting is byob but we usually wander to a nearby watering hole afterwards.

  • MapBox - creating custom maps in the cloud. Sara is bringing someone involved with its development to show some things off. I've been interested in their mb-tiles standard and tools for supporting offline maps for a while.

  • GeoNode - version 1.0 of this platform is out from the OpenGeo folks and it's starting to pick up steam. An intriguing blend of Geoserver, GeoNetwork, GeoExt and OpenLayers with a thick layer of Django to hold it all together. A legitimate open-source SDI solution is evolving...

  • Becoming an official OSGEO chapter, the quest continues

  • FOSS4G 2011 in Denver. Sep 12-16. You're going right? Call for presentations opens in Feb!

The Portland State University Geology Department will join us again this year to host the conference at the PSU campus. Last year’s conference at PSU was a great success. Join us again this year for what will be another successful opportunity to meet colleagues in the geospatial industries and organizations, to learn about emerging topics and recent advances in GIS applications and to discuss our problems and solutions together. This event features a one-fee, two day format, packed with information presented in concurrently running workshops and sessions on both days. There will be three tracks each day consisting of panel discussions debating hot topics, traditional sessions with 2-3 presentations per session and technical workshops providing in-depth discussion of issues and training in applications most relevant to the geospatial community.

This is a participant-driven event! If you've never been to an unconference before (Portland's WhereCamp is an excellent example), the format and sessions are determined on the day of the unconference by the people attending. No idea is too big or too small.

A hackathon is planned for Friday so check the wiki as plans materialize for this.

Please feel free to contact the PDX OS GIS User Group (Google group) with any questions.

WhereCampPDX 5 Unconference Day
Metro Regional Center

IMPORTANT: Please register for FREE at http://wherecamppdx5.eventbrite.com/

WhereCampPDX is a free, volunteer-created unconference for anyone interested in geography and technology. This year’s event will be happening October 12th-14th, with a full day of unconference sessions at Metro Regional Center on the 13th.

An unconference is a conference planned by the participants. We convene together, plan sessions, and break-out into the proposed session discussions and activities. This gives everyone an opportunity to bring to the table the things that interest them the most, and talk about emerging topics that are still new and exploratory. We value open participation, providing access to new voices, and lowering barriers to participation. As a result, the event is driven by the interests and talents of the participants.

We will go through some live custom examples using humangeo's dvf pluggin, we will use postgis and output geojson, geocsv and topojson to add to our leaflet maps, and also discuss some temporal mapping tools.

Bring your laptop with leaflet installed and a webserver available. Have a server scripting language such as php or python and postgressql/postgis installed. If you don't have a laptop, come anyway and you will be able to see these tools in action, as well as receive any materials handed out at the meetup.

Nepal Earthquake HOTOSM Mapathon
Esri Portland R&D Center

Calling all mappers! There will be a group at the Esri Portland office this Friday evening helping with the Humanitarian OSM mapping efforts for the Nepal earthquake crisis.

Prior experience mapping, particularly in OpenStreetMap, is highly recommended and you will need your own laptop. Beginners are welcome to come, but we may have you run through some tutorials to get up to speed rather than work on the Nepal data.

Thank you Esri Portland for providing space!

pdxrlang meetup: Probabilistic Approaches to Multi-dimensional Fuzzy Joins: A GeoSpatial Example
Mozilla

Speaker: De'Mel Mojica

Abstract: This talk will be on a general approach to automatically join large-scale, geospatial data across distinct data sets, using a mix between Levenshtein Distance thresholds and Haversine Distance thresholds. This approach permits joining multiple data sets without the need to provide ad hoc normalization conventions for each data resource. In addition, this approach can be generalized beyond a geospatial field and applied any domain which requires joining across two or more non-identical dimensions.

We'll visit a local watering hole afterwards.

[1] HOWL: 3D/4D mapping and visualization of Oregon’s wildlands

The HOWL (Highlighting Oregon's WildLands) project aims to create an interactive 3D/4D mapping and visualization tool for presenting spatio-temporal information relevant to the preservation of wilderness and wildlife protection in Oregon. HOWL will be available to conservation advocates (e.g., Oregon Wild) and the general public, to improve dissemination, understanding and interpretation of multiple publicly available data sources. Candidate data sets include boundaries of current and proposed wilderness areas, wild and scenic river areas, national forests and other public lands, wildfire events, wildlife migrations, deforestation history, and satellite imagery, to name a few.

HOWL is a web application being built using CesiumJS, a powerful open source 3D mapping and visualization library, which enables incorporating not only realistic terrain modeling, but also volumetric symbols to build interactive 3D thematic maps. In addition, HOWL will leverage the temporal visualization capabilities of CesiumJS to add the 4th dimension, thus enabling dynamic playback of related past and/or predicted events. Visualizations examples include wildfire history in old growth forest areas, wildlife migration records, and deforestation chronicles.

This presentation dives into details of building HOWL by leveraging open source front-end components (e.g., CesiumJS, jQuery, Bootstrap), back-end tools (e.g., MapShaper, toGeoJson, TopoJSON, node.js) and workflows for data acquisition, transformation, and integration. The presentation addresses key design decisions, technical challenges and future developments.

Special guest special guest is Dave Percy, from PSU Geology. Percy will be talking about "Web mapping with QGIS2Web":

Qgis2Web is a plugin for QGIS, desktop GIS software, that converts map data into a Leaflet app running in the browser. This demo will show how to create a simple online map with multiple raster layers and one vector layer that has image popups.This particular application is unusual in that it is a thin-section of rock approximately 24x46 mm with embedded electron microscopy images.

Percy is PSU Geology department's GIS Geek for the last 20 years, and helped form PDX-OSGeo way back in 2006, so come on out and enjoy some pizza, learn about QGIS, and get your monthly OSGeo fix.
