    • Social #WebApps Ideas for developing GIS applications that are socially a ”where” Allan Laframboise EDN Team @AL_Laframboise
    • who am I? @AL_Laframboise edn.esri.com
    • who are you?
    • ideas for socializing #webmaps
    • we all love putting GIS apps on the web
    • challenges… design interface tools usability
    • customer, expectations are higher…
    • see more (visualize)
    • explore more (locations)
    • do more (analysis)
    • share more (social)
    • developers, faced with new challenges
    • real-time data accurate geocoding routing with local knowledge advance sharing…
    • today… sharing & socializing
    • Quiz! Have webapp/webmap applications? Expose sharing functionality? Integrate with social media?
    • sharing is important…
    • sharing is easy… 1. Create widget for your application (AddThis or Sharethis) 2. Customize the widget (type of sharing) Email Social bookmark Social media (FB, Twitter…) 3. Add script
    • integrating with social networks is important…
    • Twitter… 140 chars instant message anything, anyone, anytime, anywhere

    • pseudo geotweets What… Who… I noticed a brush fire off the 10FWY south of the 91FWY interchange. Anyone dispatched yet? #LAFires Traffic accident off of the 38FWY near Big Bear Lake. #SoCalTraffic Anyone know where there’s still parking available for the baseball game tonight? #OregonEvents … Where?
    • useful to GIS’ers?
    • Twitter API = simple 1. Search (HTTP - JSON, atom) 2. Twitter (REST - JSON, XML) 3. Streaming (JSON)
    • security http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline.xml?screen_name=al_laframboise vs http://twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline.xml
    • Twitter’s new geolocation platform
    • developers only…
    • apps can add lat/long Opt-in Geocoding but only if you “opt-in”…
    • anatomy changes? NO! Who/what am I referring to? What am I doing? Hey, I finally made it to #WhereCampPDX! Can’t wait to meet everyone. Thanks for sending me @JimBarry. Reference/address for <geo xmlns:georss="http://www.georss.org/georss"> someone. <georss:point>37.780467** -122.396762**</georss:point> </geo>
    • curl -d "lat= 45.53269 long=-122.66116&status=I finally made it to #WhereCampPDX" -u user:pass "http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml" <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <status> <created_at>Sat Oct 03 02:52:51 +0000 2009</created_at> ... <geo xmlns:georss="http://www.georss.org/georss"> <georss:point> 45.53269 -122.66116 </georss:point> </geo> <user> <name>AL Laframboise</name> ... <geo_enabled>true</geo_enabled> ... </user> </status>
    • 7 days only!
    • scary right? wrong!
    • 1. opt-in <geo_enabled>false</geo_enabled>
    • 2. search API has always existed… http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=wherecamppdx &geocode=45.52803%2C-122.66061%2C25km
    • 3. apps are already doing this… Location: Redlands, CA Location: iPhone: 45.53269,-122.66116 P:34.05748,-117.19569 Subbing-in for @jimbarry who was planning to attend #WhereCampPDX. See you there!
    • few examples
    • Share you map with the world http://tinyurl.com/sharemap
    • “geotweeters” – Who’s saying what and where? http://tinyurl.com/geotweeters
    • Real-time geolocation and GIS ArcGIS Explorer
    • Finally users expectations are higher share your maps embrace the power of social media Real-time geolocation information is the future!
