This was an invited presentation to the University of Alberta's Human Geography and Planning 100 class. As the title implies, I provided a brief overview of GeoWeb concepts, tools and provided an overview of the maps I found most interesting in the past couple of months.

  • Lynch was perhaps one of the first to use crowdsourced data in his research. He compiled mental maps of Boston, New York and Jersy City that were derived from interviews with people who lived within those cities. This could represent the first PPGIS
  • Thematic clusters around:Sports and recreation activitiesActivity routesImpressions of placeMemories of placeSpecial placesNotions of power relative to place
  • Themes such as:IsolationGetting away from it allConnecting with peopleDeeply personal and varied.
  • The combination of these plus other emerging location based technologies will set the stage for a digital infrastructure that will define, in part, a new way of making places that goes beyond check-ins and maps that locate businesses and restaurant reviews.These data will be crowdsoucred and verified by …. The crowd.

GeoWeb Concepts, Tools and Applications GeoWeb Concepts, Tools and Applications Presentation Transcript

  • GeoWeb Concepts, Tools & Applications Matthew Dance M.A. @mattdance
  • THIS WILL BE ON THE EXAM
  • Overview • Map Concepts • Place • GIS & PPGIS • GeoWeb and other related ideas • Tools (for making maps) • The Big 2 • FOSS • Applications (more maps) • A bunch of pretty maps
  • CONCEPTS: PLACE
  • 1960‟s NeoGeography? Kevin Lynch, The Image of the City, 1960
  • Mental Maps
  • Understanding of Place There was a path in the woods there, and we call that Moonies run because our teacher, Mr. Moonie, lived right there. My friend played guitar and I played guitar, and we used to take our amps, carry our amps across back and forth across the river. At this point here right in the middle of the bridge was we deemed that as perfectly half way, so we would say, „Okay, I‟ll meet you on the bridge‟. But yeah, I spent a lot of time down there, in Gold Bar. Chris
  • What is „place‟? Place is defined as being comprised of three dimensions (after Relph, 1976): 1. Observable activities that occur in relation to the location; 2. The meanings that are created by a person in that location, and; 3. The physical features that comprise the location‟s concrete or tangible attributes.
  • Situating citizens: Who is a „place‟ expert? "Given a large enough beta-tester and codeveloper base, almost every problem will be characterized quickly and the fix will be obvious to someone." Eric Raymond, The Cathedral and the Bazaar, 1999
  • Place-based Digital Infrastructure
  • CONCEPTS: GIS ETC.
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) “A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.” From: www.ESRI.com
  • PPGIS the early years… A practice where GIS technology and methods are used in support of public participation and decision making in a number of domain applications (Sieber, 2000). • Top down & authority driven • NOT collaborative • Concerned with problems defined by authorities • Stakeholders are to be mined for data
  • GeoWeb Location Based Data + Abstract Information = Geographic World Wide Web AKA GeoWeb Underpinned by: Global Positioning Systems Application Programming Interface Volunteered Geographic Information Neogreography
  • MAPPING TOOLS
  • Open Data data.edmonton.ca data.gc.ca geogratis.gc.ca data.gov Etc…
  • Environmental Systems Research Institute
  • Google Maps
  • Google Earth
  • FREE & OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE
  • OSM A collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. Two major driving forces behind the establishment and growth of OSM have been restrictions on use or availability of map information across much of the world and the advent of inexpensive portable satellite navigation devices. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenStreetMap
  • Haiti Crisis Map Edits
  • OSM iD Editor
  • http://metro.teczno.com/#edmonton
  • FOSS Geo Stack Data Source (Open Data / OSM) + {Data Base (PostGIS)} + Visualization Tools (QGIS + TileMill) + Map Server (MapBox) Or PHP Tile Server & Leaflet
  • APPLICATIONS – MORE MAPS
