PDX Open Source GIS Meeting
Collective Agency Downtown

We meet the 4th Wednesday of every month at the Collective Agency in NW Portland (Old Town). No need to RSVP, all are welcome - our group ranges from the geo-curious to the überhackers. Beer at nearby pub to follow, probably Pints.

Two talks this month, jam-packed with mapping goodness:

When Google Maps Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade - Wm Leler - @wmleler

Google Maps has long been the choice for embedding maps on your website, or building map mashups. But Google's recent announcement that they will start charging for maps (or including ads on maps) has people looking at other options. As an added bonus, many of the alternative solutions have significant advantages over Google Maps. If you are a website owner with an embedded simple map, this talk will show you how you can dump Google Maps and switch over to other solutions in minutes (both free and paid). If you are a web designer, you'll see how you can customize maps so they will look the way you want them to look, not the way Google wants them to look. If you are a programmer building map-based webapps, you'll see how open source mapping APIs like Leaflet and Modest Maps make it faster and easier to build map mashups and have them work the way you want.

Bio - Wm is a principal engineer at Flightstats, where he draws lots of airplanes, airports, weather, and other things on maps, and a Fellow at the Banff Centre for the Arts, where he has worked with some amazing artists on web-based, virtual reality, and location-based mobile projects

MapBox - Justin Miller - @incanus77.

Justin is all things iOS for the MapBox team. He'll be joining us again to show us what MapBox has been up to lately (and they've been busy) including their strategy in the Google Maps space, their new iOS SDK, MapBox streets layer, custom styled maps, what Artem from Mapnik is doing now that he's joined the team and what they're doing with open source in general. Something for everyone and a great follow-up to Wm's talk.

Bio - Justin brings a wealth of mobile application development experience to MapBox. He has expertise in client-side programming on the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, as well as server-side programming and administration on UNIX platforms.

This month: CartoDB Hack Session

this month we don't have a talk lined up so we thought we would shake things up a little bit and do a little hack session as a group with one of the newer kids on the block, CartoDB. It's data management, map styling/publishing and an API for vector/raster spatial queries all rolled into one without needing to muck with server management. A researchers dream and built on open source goodness. What's that you say you're not a software developer? Perfect because you don't need to be to get started. We can roll up our sleeves and work together, ask lots of silly questions and learn lots of new things.

They offer a free account and tutorial to get started. Should be fun, see you tomorrow.

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. Bring a flash drive so you can take a copy of the data home.

Programming Open Source Web Spatio-Temporal Mapping Visualizations
Anna Bannanas Cafe, St Johns

This month at MaptimeStJohns, we will begin programming a basic web spatio-temporal visualization, bring a computer if you have one. Ill bring the js library files for leaflet and the various plugins we will be using. If you have a temporal dataset, bring it... Ill have a couple of datasets to choose from though. Our goal will be for everyone to create at least one temporal point visualizations. An example would be the point locations of where floods occurred with the location, size of flood and date of flood event. With this data we could create a temporal proportional symbol map. The user will be able to click on the locations for specific locations and also use a slider to see when and where floods occurred over time. Let's create some cool web map visualizations!

OSGeo-PDX monthly meeting - CartoCSS and UTFGrids for collaborative mapping
Portland State University Cramer Hall - room 409

Monthly meeting of the open source GIS group PDX-OSGeo.

Discussion of all things spatial and open source. Tonight's guest is Nick Martinelli who will speak to us about using CartoCSS and UTFGrids for collaborative mapping.

From Nick's Description of the project:

Warning, this talk is about cartographers designing and building web applications. Tasked with making a mapping application for internal business use, we reached out for open source tools that could be combined to produce a platform for collaborative mapping and data sharing. We used tools like Mapbox.js, windshaft, mapnik, and PostGIS to build a web based application that allows its users to create, filter, edit, and share interactive maps and data with teams or individuals. The presentation will take you through the challenges of building on FOSS, and the importance of small group collaborative mapping. Highlights will be our efforts to use great, but occasionally sparsely documented FOSS code and tools, and the sometimes challenging chore of making them play nice together. Also, discussion of why we feel collaborative editing and creation of dynamic maps is an important future focus for web mapping applications. Last, the product we ended up with, and continue to develop for private use opens up the conversation about how to best give back to the FOSS community from the private sector.

OSGeo-PDX monthly meeting - SpiderOSM (spiderosm.org)
Portland State University Cramer Hall - 4th floor

Monthly meeting of the open source GIS group PDX-OSGeo.

Discussion of all things spatial and open source. Tonight's guest is Katie Urey who will speak to us about SpiderOSM. Street conflation is a long time difficult problem and this is a project that looks very useful. The project gives Portland lots of attention as well.

SpiderOSM is an open source python package for matching segments in one path network, e.g., streets and trails, to corresponding segments in another, based on geography and network connectivity. This allows joining together attribute data from separate sources. Importantly authoritative jurisdictional data can be correlated with the rich, crowd-sourced, user editable and extensible, Open Street Maps data. Multifactor match scoring, allows data to be joined only for high confidence matches.

The initial version of the matcher was coded in early 2014 specifically to combine Open Street Map data with Portland Oregon area jurisdictional data (RLIS) to facilitate pedestrian infrastructure analysis and planning. Since then the code has been refactored into a generally useful python package that installs, via pip, and works on all three major platforms: Mac OSX, Linux and Windows. The code is stable and mature, with version 1.0 just around the corner.

The developer, Michael Arnold, is now focusing on developing applications, and finding users and collaborators. On going projects where help would be very welcome include:

  1. The Portland Area Mismatched Name Survery (looking at name mismatches between OSM and RLIS identified by SpiderOSM.) Some folks at TriMet and others at PDOT have begun this project, but there is ALOT to be done!

  2. A QGIS Plug-in for spiderOSM. Ryan Peterson has recently begun this project, and would welcome help.

  3. Help getting the word out: publicizing spiderOSM online and at appropriate events. Alternately, advice and encouragement in this process. :)

Another opportunity, not yet begun: looking for someone interested in developing an ESRI Plug-in for spiderOSM.

The Power of Story -- PDX OSGeo monthly meeting
Portland State University Cramer Hall - room 409

This month welcomes Tim Welch and Katie Urey who will be combining two of their favorite things - Stories and Maps. Pizza will be provided. BYOB as always.


The Power of Story

How do you tell a good story with a map? A story that’s memorable, entertaining, and paints a vivid picture that the viewer connects with. We’ll dive into two different scenarios.

Policy Advocacy

Imagine a world with zero traffic-related injuries. That’s what the Portland Vision Zero campaign wants to achieve in the next 10 years with the participation of the City of Portland, Oregon Walks, Bike Portland and other groups. With construction booming in Portland, one of the biggest concerns is construction closures which often bring together vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians in unexpected and unsafe ways. How can we utilize maps to illustrate issues like this, demonstrate alternatives, and advocate for improving policy? This project is seeking collaborators, please reach out to us.

Product Marketing

Good product presentation goes beyond the specs to tell a story that a potential customer can imagine themselves in. We can use maps to play out scenes in the real world where the viewer is the main character. Tim will present an app-based approach that’s part movie and part presentation that can be used for anything from elevator pitches to digital displays -- Toolbox: React, Mapbox GL+Studio, Turf, QGIS, OpenStreetMap, and Electron.

Presenters

Tim Welch -- @tdoubleuu, freelance web developer connecting the dots -- http://dotsconnect.us

Katie Urey -- @rbracket, GIS Geek, advocate for safe walking

[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.
