  • Engaging the Community Through Data Sharing James Fee Friday, May 28, 2010
  • Photo by steven w - http://flic.kr/p/5TBjYh Friday, May 28, 2010 We all have probably hundreds of communities that we take part in. Think about all the physical, online, formal or informal communities you take part in every day. How they overlap and how they react to each other.
  • Photo by Lars Plougmann - http://flic.kr/p/oEQrX Friday, May 28, 2010 Let us think for a moment about how these communities use geospatial technology.
  • Photo by roboppy - http://flic.kr/p/Gj64f Friday, May 28, 2010 Yelp stickers appear almost everywhere these days.
  • Photo by 6S - http://flic.kr/p/6Syzg3 Friday, May 28, 2010 Free food for being the mayor or check in?
  • Photo by ItoWorld - http://flic.kr/p/7Ch1Bg Friday, May 28, 2010 OSM Haiti efforts were epic and the speed at which that community responded was just incredible.
  • Friday, May 28, 2010 But beyond Haiti and other natural disasters, we need to do more to engage this mapping community in our backyards. They will be mapping no matter if organizations help them or not, so we might as well make their efforts as accurate as possible.

  • Government Data Will Start to be Supplied by Citizens, Not Centrally Friday, May 28, 2010 Government Data Will Start to be Supplied by Citizens, Not Centrally Lets think about that for a moment. According to Gartner, 1 in 5 government organizations will rely on crowdsourced data in 2012, shifting their focus from providing information to constituents to gathering and managing information that constituents themselves collect and provide.

  • Crowd Sourcing Volunteered Geographic Information Friday, May 28, 2010
  • Crowd Sourcing Volunteered Geographic Information User- Generated Content Friday, May 28, 2010
  • Friday, May 28, 2010 When there is a “boom” sound in Arizona, we assume it is aliens.
  • Friday, May 28, 2010 When Portland hears a boom, they go ahead and crowd source the location of the sound. You guys are just nuts! ;)
  • It’s the awesome! http://www.flickr.com/photos/soundfromwayout/143822346 Friday, May 28, 2010
  • The Old Days of GIS Friday, May 28, 2010 The old days of GIS - much like this UNIX user, they had a certain air of superiority that they let everyone know about.
  • Friday, May 28, 2010 Traditional GIS was best done in the corner cubicles, out of the way of everyone.
  • Friday, May 28, 2010 Data was protected from users because maps lie.
  • This map is older than I am. Friday, May 28, 2010 Data was protected from users because maps lie.
  • Photo by notfrancois - http://flic.kr/p/4kiw8P Friday, May 28, 2010 but as we all know, the public is mapping because they can’t get access to that data.
  • Natch Photo by notfrancois - http://flic.kr/p/4kiw8P Friday, May 28, 2010 but as we all know, the public is mapping because they can’t get access to that data.
  • Friday, May 28, 2010 But how far are we away from getting crowdsourced data into data repositories such as geodata.gov? Right now I see no way this will be happening anytime soon.

  • http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/File:OSM_Hi_Vis_Back.jpg Friday, May 28, 2010 The OSM guys will go out and survey the town when an eruption happens. They may try and share with FEMA, but they’ll get rebuffed. The solution is to engage the local government and share data with them. They’ll give it to FEMA. If local government can share back and forth with the crowd source community, then they’ll all get better data results. We must share with each other.

  • Under the state public records law and cases construing the law, cities are permitted to weigh the competing interests of the public's right to receive records versus the countervailing concerns of privacy, confidentiality, and the best interests of the city. Under federal law, city utilities such as water and sewer lines are considered critical infrastructure, which means that cities may restrict access to such data for homeland security reasons. As such, we generally limit access to utility mapping except for very limited parcels or sections, and not for the entire city. Therefore, your request is denied in part; we will release the complete landbase, but not the utilities. City Attorney, Andrew Ching Not Andrew Ching Friday, May 28, 2010 City of Tempe, attorney...
