  • Transcript

    • 1. The death knell— yes, the death knell —for [exclusively] paper geologic maps P. Kyle House Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology University of Nevada, Reno
    • 2. Geology Evolves with Technology, Shouldn’t you?
    • 3.
      • Exclusively paper geoscience is over
      • Web 2.0 and the ‘geoweb’
      • Mapping as unifying geo-foundation
      • Simple tools to complex tools
      • More geologists need to get on board
      • Spread the word (online, maybe?)
    • 4.  
    • 5.  
    • 6.  
    • 7.
      • Ease of Compilation
        • Digitizing lines is drawing ‘final’ lines
      • Enhanced Contextual Experience
        • For compilers, reviewers, and users
      • Collaboration / Interactivity
        • Share your desktop with your colleagues, share your data with the world
    • 8.
      • Web 2.0 is a concept
        • The application of web-based services for interactive and collaborative purposes
          • Wikis
          • Blogs
          • Social bookmarking
          • Collaborative mapping / GIS
      • Requires rethinking some basic tenets
    • 9. Is it Relevant? Ask your kids and students.
    • 10.
      • Data availability and data sharing
      • Dynamic, collaborative input (peer review proxy)
      • Science community standards (via consensus)
      • Idea development, dissemination, and discovery
      • Enhance communication
    • 11.  
    • 12.
      • Online archive of images, discussions
      • Tips, tutorials, etc.
      • Invited or public audience
      • Idea chronology
      • Superior to e-mail attachments, threads
      • Make new friends / find collaborators
      • Data sharing!
    • 13.
      • Bridge the analog-digital gap with pen and paper, really!
      Check out Adapx.com Dude, this thing works!
    • 14. Can you sign your name with a mouse? No? Then why map a contact with one? Check out wacom.com Check out Cardinal Systems
    • 15.  
    • 16. Check out geosetter!
    • 17.  
    • 18.
      • Instant geospatial gratification. Allows for descriptive commenting from invited viewers or anyone. Great potential for online collaboration.
    • 19.  
    • 20.  
    • 21.
      • [Exclusively] paper geology is becoming irrelevant
      • Geoscientists need to participate more in the ‘Geoweb’ and share more data
      • There are simple tools available for this
      • We need better examples to motivate
    • 22. An initiative to develop a digital, collaborative surficial geologic map of Nevada
      • Major Goals:
      • Collaborative GIS
      • Mediated, online contribution
      • Multi-platform
      • OneGeology data model
      • GeoSciML data structure
      Phase One: 2009-2010 Clark County
