  • this is then an integrated map... tah-dah!

    red is one day
    blue is another day
    black is the compilation

    Cabspotting did this for San Francisco

    (note for us) match this up with a map of london

    this has been done for every major city in the world now.

    to position in three dimensions, you need at least 4 transmitters
    the distance each transmission travels through the atmosphere (at different angles depending on where the satellite is and the direction it is traveling around the earth

    WAAS (wide area augmentation system)
    EGNOS (European system)

  • Artistic map-- such as this---http://sf.biomapping.net/map.htm






















  • this is london
    we are zooming in
    we are using Google tile format
    this is all community sourced

  • Talk about TIGER data (we may want a big section on tiger data.

    tiger data does not have
    one ways
    wtc site
    ferrys

    explain where tiger comes from why we use it how we improve it.


  • this slide is great because it shows the details of the central area but then on the left you can see there are sections of town not yet done

    like wikipedia in the early days the bookends were finished first, then the volumes were filled out.

  • all this was marked with gps, they’ve even marked each individual bus stop

  • this was done by armchair mappers

    using potlatch, the OSM editor, this was done by folks in their own homes using Yahoo Aerial Imagery

    5. 5. Why maps? “Because maps are a visual tool for sharing information with others. Because they can be produced by many people and combined together to tell stories about complex relationships. Because maps are never finished and only tell part of a story that can constantly be expanded upon. Because power exists in space, struggle exists in space and we exist in space. Because we cannot know where we are going if we do not know where we are from.” - Notes for a People’s Atlas of Chicago http://chicagoatlas.areaprojects.com/about/ 5

    21. 21. Norman Dennison, director of Geographers' A-Z Map Company, confirms that Lye Close is a lie, which will now be removed. quot;The idea is to put something on the map to protect copyright,quot; he says. quot;We try to put it in an area or a part of a road which would not be misleading to the ordinary person in the street. They have been put in out- of-the-way places.quot; 21

    25. 25. A thought... “If you don’t make [lower-resolution mapping data] publicly available, there will be people with their cars and GPS devices, driving around with their laptops .. They will be cataloguing every lane, and enjoying it, driving 4×4s behind your farm at the dead of night. There will, if necessary, be a grass-roots remapping.” Tim Berners-Lee 25

    35. 35. “You could have a community capability where you took the GPS data of people driving around and started to see, oh, there’s a new road that we don’t have, a new route .. And so that data eventually should just come from the community with the right software infrastructure.” - Bill Gates 35
