Dear fellow members of* *the Ottawa Chapter of OSGeo,
Given the number of information and topics that were brought to the table
on April 25th, I thought it would make sense to share the minutes of the
*Talks about Open Data Initiative :*
- The role of GIS experts in the Open Data Initiative and the usability
of Open Data.How to provide developers with data that really empower
citizens through quality and usability.
- I would like to see if I can get us to connect at least once with the
open data Ottawa since my experience during Toronto Hackathon pointed out a
real need for spatial data. Out of 30 presented apps, between 5 and 10 were
using geospatial information.
*The **Ottawa Chapter of OSGeo would like to take part in two events :*
- Software Freedom Day in September 2013.
- GIS Day in November 2013
It means that we need two things :
- A place for those two event
- Volunteers that would be up for a presentation. Up until know, we have
4 people up for that. (I messed up with my notes, so please feel free to
modify that as you want.
- Javed : Optics
- Regie : Balloon mapping
- Richard : Open Street Map
- Me : PostGIS 2.0
Other volunteers are welcomed. Regarding the venues, we mentioned a couple
of options that I will explore during this month.
- Carleton University
- Ottawa University
- Find a place in collaboration with the Eclipse Foundation
If anyone can help to make those events happen, I would love to hear from
you. More updates next month :).
