Peter Baumann has also send excellent details of  TV documentary that he and colleagues in Germany developed  which addresses Big Earth Data. Details at


I think it is a good example of explaining in simple terms synergies with Geospatial and Big Data to the wider public. So let us make sure we keep building more ideas for joint research at Plenary 6 and the future.

Best wishes,

Subject: Recordings and minutes of joint meeting of IG Geospatial & IG Big Data - RDA5 , San Deigo

Colleagues ,

The minutes and presentations from the joint meeting of Geospatial and Big Data IGs at RDA5 , San Deigo earlier this month are now available at


Thanks to Chris Pettit  (University of Melbourne) for chairing this joint meeting  aimed at bridging synergies with Geospatial and Big Data research communities in particular for our Road Map Challenge ideas for Urban Science and City Analytics (joint ideas in Geospatial and Big Data ) See ideas in place at http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/GeoForAll_UrbanScience_CityAnalytics  and join the mailing list at  http://lists.osgeo.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/geoforall-urbanscience

All those interested are welcome to join the thematic working group. We request that all participants  support the 'Open Cities Guiding Principles.'

Open Cities - Guiding Principles :

* All material created is made available for all under an Open License
* All material is carefully designed (modular componentry) so that it can be built upon by others
* All participants aim to reuse, extend and invent material (in that order)

Thanks also  to Christoph Stich for kindly putting together the minutes of the meeting . We also thank RDA Europe's Early Career European Researchers & Scientists working with Data Support Programme for the RDA 5th Plenary which supported Christoph Stich

It was a great session with about 50 people involved ( at the event and online)

The link to a recording of the GoTomeeting in case anyone missed it and would like to watch is available at


We thank all presenters and participants for thier contributions and looking forward to expand these ideas in the future. See you at P6 at Paris (23rd-25th Sep, 2015) with a focus on Research Data for Climate Change.


Best wishes,

Suchith Anand, Peter Baumann, Andrea Perego, Luciene Delzari, Helena Mitasova, Chris Pettit, Morris Riedel, Kwo-Sen Kuo
