Geo Meetup

Welcome! We are a group of developers, enthusiasts and users interested in the technical aspect of different geo technologies. This group is meant to be an open, friendly, technical forum where you can find answers to your geospatial questions or learn more about Geographic Information Systems (GIS). A cool geo-project: If you ever had "traditional" questions like/about: - What is the best way of storing the locations for my mobile app?- How do I get the altitude from this lat/lon?- How can I access my maps offline?- What is the best way to integrate to my enterprise ESRI-based GIS?- How do I create my own web enabled map tiles?- How geocoding/reverse geocoding works or what apis to use to accomplish this- Writing a location-enabled iOS/Android apps - Wondering about Google Maps, Google Earth, Bing Maps, MapQuest, etc- Open Source geo-options - Traditional geo-options (Oracle Spatial, MSSQL Spatial, ESRI's ArcGIS, etc) - Spatially-enabled backends - Mapping technologies- New libraries/datasets/apis in the geo-space, etc Or if your interests include less traditional questions related to: - Building a geo-aware augmented reality app- Cool things you can do with OpenStreetMap- Building hardware sensors to capture/process geodata- OpenCV geo experiments- How to build a realtime tracking application- Anything else related to geo! then this group may be the right place for you :) Although we expect the content to be a little bit heavy sometimes, everyone is welcomed! The plan is to meet at a location once a month, do a few presentations and then head to a bar near our location for geo-beer (or whatever else) chit chat. I've found this is a great formula for a successful group. Hope to see you soon

  • Bringing Geo to Cassandra

    Tue, 10 May 2011, 01:45 - 03:45 in San Francisco, United States

    Spatial data is multidimensional and therefore requires special care. SimpleGeo had to build its own indexing scheme for Apache Cassandra to handle its data. In this presentation, Mike Malone, an infrastructure engineer at SimpleGeo, explains how and why the company did it.About Mike:Mike Malone is an infrastructure engineer at SimpleGeo where he works on building and integrating scalable systems that power the company's location platform.

  • GeoMeetup Member Presentations

    Tue, 19 Apr 2011, 01:45 - 03:45 in San Francisco, United States

    Many of you are doing interesting geo-related projects. The expertise of this group is so varied, that I thought, perhaps, we should share some of it with the rest of the group.I am waiting for confirmation from the speakers - and I will keep updating the page once I start getting them. If you think you have an interesting topic to present, shoot me an e-mail. You get up to 15 minutes - and the rules are simple:1.- It has to be geo-related2.- You have to show code

  • Open-source 3D Geo-Visualization: Where We Are Today

    Wed, 23 Feb 2011, 02:30 - 04:30 in San Francisco, United States

    Hello Geo-geeks,This is one presentation I am really excited about (if you knew exactly what Ben has in mind - you would be too!). Trust me, you don't want to miss this.Ben will present the current state of the art in open-source visualization of realistic scenes from geospatial data, using the VTP software and other open-source tools, describe both the limitations and exciting possibilities with current software.
