  • What is EDINA?Open Data & Open Source Software at EDINAis a National Data CentreBased atSupported by http://pafciu17.dev.openstreetmap.org/?module=map&center=-3.18,55.935&zoom=17&width=400&height=400type=cycle
  • What do we do?Open Data & Open Source Software at EDINAhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/steverhode/3183290111/sizes/l/in/photostream/Ensure continuous access to resourcesPreservation initiatives to ensure long termaccess to scholarly contentRepository services for open access andother licensed material
  • What do we do?Open Data & Open Source Software at EDINAAuthenticationMultimediaServicesBibliographicServicesGeoService
  • What?EDINA runs services primarily for the UK educationsector. However, it is increasingly trying to makeits services open and available to everyone.In this Presentation we will look at some of theservices that EDINA run that you can access andwhat you might do with them and some other“Open” geo-tools.
  • GeoTaggerA demo web clientenabling users to uploadmedia, metadata parsingand geo-tagging/geo-codingAn Open Metadata collection ofgeo-tagged/geo-coded enrichedmedia with a search interface(this has been seeded with250,000 images from GeographA basic web service APIfor geo-tagging/geo-coding image, audio andvideo media

  • Cartogrammarcar·to·gram/ kärtə gramˈ ˌ /A map on which statisticalinformation is shown indiagrammatic form.A small diagram on the face of amap, showing quantitativeinformation.An abstracted and simplifiedmap the base of which is nottrue to scale.http://www.viewsoftheworld.net

  • Creation Parameters
  • Cartogram View and Download
  • Slide 12 of ##Project Goals<<Enter presentation title here>>• Example of one being made here:
  • ShareGeoFind and share openspatial data ……
  • ShareGeoCreate maps or performspatial analysis
  • OpenstreamStream map to a GIS orGoogle Earth or embedthe map in your websiteusing the API.Web Mapping Service(WMS) of OS OpenData
  • OpenstreamStream maps at avariety of scales withappropriate detail oneachOffers an alternativeto OSM. Advantagesand disadvantages –discuss.
  • OpenstreamGreat way of streaming maps into a GIS, in thiscase QGIS.
  • GoGeoOpen Data & Open Source Software at EDINADiscover GIS resourcesFind DataCreate standards compliant metadataLearn about metadata standards

  • UnlockUnlock Text – feed in abody of text and Unlockwill associate places fromit. It uses fuzzy logic todisambiguate places withthe same nameWeb API that providesgeographic reference toplace names.
  • Putting it all together…….What if we want to take some Open data and make it available forothers to view it over the internet?There are plenty of tools to help you do this and you don’t need to beprogrammer or GIS expert to achieve it either.Lets find out how……
  • Putting it all together…….We are going to make a map thatshows the location of wind farmsaround the UK. We could just postthe image we saw earlier, but thatdoesn’t allow the user to interact atall, they cannot zoom or query thedata.
  • Putting it all together…….Another shameless plug,but an example of theuseful data that is inShareGeo Open ready tobe used.
