  • On Big, Open, Spatial Systems (but mostly about the data, which is far more important)In the picture
  • All objects are spatial. Even we imagine in our heads has a place…
  • Maps are reflections of time. Maps are imperfect.
  • But what isiswhat we map? Where is the border?
  • Onlyone side of New Zeelandmapped (at the Royal Palace, Amsterdam). We cannot map the unknown…just keep that in mind.
  • One we understand ‘what is where’, we can move to “why it is there” and “what we can do about this”. This requires geographic analysis.
  • Lots of examples of geographic analysis can be found. Topic of a different talk?
  • Long time open data (Landsat)
  • TOP10NL – Kadaster open data.
  • National AHN height level data. (open high res elevation data)
  • a simpleviewing app.
  • A 3D webservice… kind of diffucult to go back to 2D
  • – in the negative sense
  • with visualisation types
  • 4D or realtime

    3. 3. Try to imagine objects, which are not spatially related…
    4. 4. The world changes and so does the map…
    5. 5. A tree or not a tree? Where is the border? Is it a creek or a ditch?
    6. 6. We can only map what we know

    8. 8. #GeographicAnalysis
    9. 9. Spatial data • Is about “where” - location • Next, it’s about what it is and what you can do about it • Is never 100% correct • Results depend on data modeling • Becomes really interesting when you go (way) beyond pins on a map: • Geographic analysis makes all the difference

    16. 16. Open data • Releasing data into the public domain • Can create real value for other organisations • For developers, citizens, media, business, government • Economic benefits (but fun as well) • Enriches ecosystems of technology and data • Lots of open geodata to come :)
