Workshop [2 hours]
Part 1: Becoming a Geospatial Leader What does it take to be a leader in the ever-evolving world of geospatial sciences and technologies? In this discussion forum, learn about URISA resources, educational opportunities, and the value of mentorship in furthering personal and professional development for success.
The network is the computer, especially when your data is already in the Cloud. This workshop will show how, without concern for the details of servers and storage, you can use small amounts of code to run big geospatial batch jobs with help from GDAL, Amazon Lambda and S3. Participants will need AWS accounts, know how to create an S3 bucket and upload data to it. Most of the session will be using the AWS Command Line Interface and little bit of Bash on a Linux EC2 instance.
How to use data and behavior-change techniques to gamify smart cities and change the world.
You may have heard the saying, “If you can’t measure it, it probably doesn’t exist.” This talk is about measuring what we want to change and getting really good at changing it.
This workshop would cover the basics of open source project management and development processes at Eclipse's LocationTech working group. The goal of the workshop is to take attendees through the best practices we have developed over the years for governance, intellectual property management and community building. The intended audience is people who are interested in learning more about what open source is and how they can make it work for their organization
Cal-Adapt (launched 2011) provides access to the wealth of climate data produced by California’s scientific and research community through interactive climate tools, data downloads and a new public Web API. Cal-Adapt is developed by UC Berkeley's Geospatial Innovation Facility with oversight and funding from California Energy Commission. Through the public Cal-Adapt Web API, users can currently access future climate projections for the following climate variables:
