OpenGeo.org

May 15 2008 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  geospatial web

So within the GeoServer community we’re debating whether it’s kosher to do a fairly blatant ‘commercial’ announcement on the blog about OpenGeo.org. But in the meantime I figured I’d just announce here, since I can do whatever I want on my personal blog🙂 I’m really excited to present OpenGeo, the newly minted geospatial division of […]


Letting everyone remix web maps

Mar 06 2008 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial web

I’ve been meaning to lay down my little vision of how web mapping configuration should work for awhile.  It’s not a big idea, but a nice little way to perhaps bring more participation in to the creation of web maps, making it possible for anyone to make a mash-ups.  I believe Google Mapplets gets at […]


Slides from GSDI-10

Mar 01 2008 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial web

Just finished up a great week at GSDI-10 in Trinidad. I came down with Justin Deoliveira; he put on a great workshop on Monday, and we both had talks on Thursday. Sometime soon we should post the workshop modules on the GeoServer blog, but I wanted to get my talk online as several people asked […]


Recycling to help maintain performance and stability

Feb 01 2008 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  quotes

So I’ve rarely looked at ESRI software, but a friend has administrator rights on the new version of ArcGIS Server, and he decided to show me how it works.  There are a lot of options, and they provide some interesting configuration of how the processes work: They have this great ‘feature’ called Recycling – ‘Recycling […]


Great post on GeoData licensing

Jan 12 2008 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial web

I have some major posts to write, but thankfully there are others out in the world thinking about and writing about the same issues that I care about.  Today I found ‘The license: where are, where we’re going‘ on the OpenGeoData blog.  It is exactly the post I wanted to write after attending the Science […]


Producing, not consuming, makes the GeoWeb go ’round.

Dec 01 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial web

Aaron on Streetsblog just passed me a link to post by Steven Johnson on what he calls ‘the pothole paradox‘. It’s a very nice introduction to GeoWeb ideas, and clearly explains to laypeople why geospatial metadata on everything could help. But for us working on building this open, interoperable GeoWeb it offers very little, except […]


Collaborative Mapping: Tools, cont.

Jul 16 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial web

The next major area of tool improvement I see is expanding the wiki notion of editing to more of a merging revision control model, with branches, versions, patches and eventually expanding in to distributed repositories.  The ‘patch‘ is a small piece of code that can be applied to a computer program to fix something.  They […]


Collaborative Mapping: Tools

Jul 12 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial geospatial web

Continuing the collaborative mapping thread, I’d like to think a bit about tools to make this happen. Do a bit of dreaming, and maybe think through how we can get there. Definitely as soon as I start to talk about this people want to do all kinds of crazy synchronization and distributed editing of features. […]


Collaborative Mapping: The Business Thread, cont.

Jul 06 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial geospatial web

So if there is a future where collaboratively mapping could be economically competitive, how do we go about actually getting there?  I actually think we’re further than many might think, though I believe there is still a lot of work to be done, innovating with the tools, communities and workflows to make this happen.  But […]


Collaborative Mapping: The Business Thread

Jun 29 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial web

Since I was speaking at Where 2.0, which is a good bit more business oriented than most conferences I attend, I felt that it could be interesting to start to make the business case for how collaborative mapping could succeed.  I didn’t have time to do more than throw out a few ideas, but I […]


Collaborative Mapping Redux

Jun 26 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial web

So after a lengthy hiatus, it’s time for me to get back in to the whole collaborative mapping thing.  I’ve been thinking about such things a lot lately, and didn’t have time to get to most of it at my Where 2.0 presentation.  We’ve also been making progress in GeoServer to support all kinds of […]


Google and the Geospatial Web: A smaller piece of a much, much larger pie.

Jun 19 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial geospatial web

Well, I’ve been back from Where 2.0 for awhile, and as usual blogging hasn’t been the highest priority, but there was one topic that I’ve been really wanting to write about. And that is that Google seems to be legitimately moving in a more open direction with regards to geospatial. I’ve rarely been overtly critical […]


Where 2.0 slides

Jun 06 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial web

Hey, just wanted to throw a quick post up with my Where 2.0 slides. The slides are not too exciting, I need to learn to make prettier slides (or at least to try to spend more time on doing that), but I think the talk ended up decently. I plan to do blog posts of […]


Public domain imagery from iCubed for WorldWind and beyond?

May 15 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  architectures of participation geospatial geospatial web

So I’m watching this video about the new Java WorldWind. And there’s a couple quotes of interest from Patrick Hogan, NASA’s lead on the project: That’s access to different NASA datasets that you can leverage, public domain, so you can use and abuse that information as you like, do anything you want with it, but […]


I, for one, welcome our new proprietary SDI overlords…

May 14 2007 [Archived Version] □ Published at Into The Pudding under tags  geospatial geospatial web

So I’ve been slow on the uptake, as the geo blogosphere’s conversation about Google’s KML Search‘ took place awhile ago. Mostly because I’m only about half way through my meandering series of essays to make several points, one of which is that SDIs are crap, and that once there’s enough geospatial information of real value […]
