Intro to Neogeography - Armchair map making

Alex Mandel
PhD Student, Geography Graduate Group, UC Davis

Chair, Systems Administration Committee, Open Source Geospatial Foundation

Want a map of somewhere you're going, a visualization of somewhere
you've been, or just a interesting mashup of geographic data over the
web; with a dash of GPS/smartphone points and maybe a few geotagged
photos? If everyone knows the basics of spatial data formats, concepts,
data sources, and software tools they too can be neogeographers making
and sharing maps, from their perspective and from the comfort of their
living room, with the rest of the world.

This talk will give you the knowledge necessary to make your own maps
with open source software, free data, and some general cartography tips.

Brian Lavender

"There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to
make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other
way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies."
