  • Next slide – who I am and what I DO
  • Research potential impact of volunteered data that professional data can not provideIdeas in Transit + Loughborough UniversityResearch how VGI and traditional Cartography can be combined together to produce new forms of map based productsNot in the computer science sense of ‘can we do it’ but in the human factors sense of creating products of higher worth and ‘enjoyment’ to consumers than either VGI or professional information alone.In the last year I have been out researching this with various groups and attending conferences such as State of the Map 2009 and 1st Geograph conference.
  • How volunteered information can be used with professional information to produce products and services of higher user value than either VGI or PGI aloneThese are the gaps in known literature I will address
  • Quick recap of what VGI isthe problems with naming phenomenon in the literatureMy address of the situation
  • General overview of Neogeography and VGI
  • Some of the 14 names used to describe the Neogeography Phenomenon
  • NEOGEOGRAPHY IS THE ENTIRE THINGVGI is similar to PGI (OSM being open source Ordnance Survey)Within potential scope of traditional cartographyVGLI is something different from both – can only come from communityOutside of traditional cartographyVGLI – birdwatchers
  • Overlap between PGI (Ordnance Survey), VGI (OpenStreetMap) and VGLI (Rotten Neighbours)
  • Lots of work in:Santa Barbara (USA)UCL (UK)Bonn (Germany)Etc.
  • Clear up two terms which are different but complimentary
  • Aims of the research – starting out almost blank in October 2008At the start of this study, the position of human factors within VGI, and associated elements of User-centred Design may be considered unknown.Distinct lack of human factors research into VGI (Harding, Sharples et al. 2009)
  • We have seen these Research Questions beforeFocus on VGI in the strictest state, OpenStreetMapNext slide go over methods used in addressing these two issues
  • Rich Picture – Monk & Howard
  • LAST SLIDE ON THE FINDINGS – summary next
  • Tackle the other research questions
  • Research Aims#1 most important in shaping studyDirects us towards focusing on VGLI rather than VGI
  • Where to start – finding a communityPoints – what will make a good communityComing up – rich picture then Andy’s drawing
  • Click for the shapes to appear
  • difficulty of courses, parking spots, landing points and local amenities. Information on course may depend on water levels which may change rapidly over a 24 hour period.Their results should be transferable to other groups who use ‘dynamic data’NEXT SLIDE – REMINDER OF CONDITIONS REQUIRED
  • Highlight how Kayakers fit the requirements
  • Diagram to show
  • 4 main points
  • Today’s slides are already online on the blogDiscussion points- What do you think of VGLI
