Arctic Web Map, PolarMap.js, Arctic Sensor Web, and Arctic Citizen Sensors

This is a presentation presented at FOSS4G North America in Raleigh, NC on May 3rd 2016.

We are presenting a suite of web mapping tools designed specifically for the Arctic regions. These tools are Arctic Citizen Sensors, Arctic Web Maps, and PolarMap.js. These Arctic-specific web mapping tools allowing researchers and developers to customize map projections for scientifically accurate visualization and analysis, a function that is critical for arctic research but not easy to do with existing web mapping platforms. Arctic Citizen Sensors is a citizen-sensing platform based on open source hardware and the OGC SensorThings API. It empowers the northern communities to collect environmental sensing data and develop innovative applications with the open sensing data. Arctic Web Maps (AWM) is an Arctic-focused tile server offering mapping tiles. By providing tiles in multiple Arctic projections, data can be more accurately visualized compared to most Mercator projected map tiles. The open source client library, PolarMap.js, is designed to be easy to use and easy to extend. It does this by providing a simple wrapper for building a typical Leaflet map, and also by providing base classes that can be customized to build a web map for your specific situation. This presentation will present and demonstrate the AWM and PolarMap.js and some real-world applications will also be discussed and demonstrated.
