If you’re not aware of OpenStreetMap – it’s a global community of volunteers that are gathering, measuring, and improving a map of the world. We have been long time members and supporters of the OpenStreetMap community and utilize the data and technology throughout GeoIQ and GeoCommons.
We’re devoted to improving open-source geospatial technology and so we’re excited to be hosting the first US-based OpenStreetMap Hack Weekend at our offices near Washington, DC next month on February 18 & 19, 2011. The last hack weekend was held in London last year
The meetup will be very technical and focus on building core applications and technology for the OpenStreetMap project as well as projects that support OpenStreetMap. For example, I’m interested in improving the export and sharing of OpenStreetMap data and want to see how to provide more up to date extracts of regions and types of data. Other projects include extending the core website platform, Mapnik and stylesheet improvements, data editor.
So if you are a member of OpenStreetMap and want to meet other developers working on the project you can sign up and join in on the planning. Or if you just want to learn more about the project and join the local community of people helping improve the map through data and mapping parties then check out MappingDC.
Welcome to the Esri DC Development Center blog. We write about features of our work on big data analytics, open platforms, and open data, what is new and exciting in the Esri and community, and general industry thought leadership and discussions of geospatial data visualization and analysis.
Please explore what we're working on and let us know if you have any questions or ideas!
