Atlas of the PNW: Gareth Baldrica-Franklin of Oregon State University will be discussing the background and creation of the 2018/2019 Atlas of the Pacific Northwest, a project created entirely using open source data, software, and code, and designed for education and use by the geographically curious.
Clinton Stipek With seagrass populations declining worldwide, more research is needed to understand their population dynamics. This project utilized ArcGIS, R, and python to analyze and create projections for different size-based seagrass populations in a study area adjacent to a major city (Miami) using a landscape approach.
@you Introduce yourself! Or re-introuduce yourself! Please tell us about something cool you are working on
UW Event Wifi
Reminder about the other cool geo-meetups in the area:
Clinton Stipek presented this great story map on his research.
Garteh showed off http://pnwatlas.oregonstate.edu remotely. The project started in the 1950s as a print publication, and was revived in the last couple years as a webiste. Built using tools like Vue and Leaflet, it brings a modern web-based approach to the regional atlas.
Fred presented the motivations and creation of https://github.com/flott/kingco-opengeodata, a tool for bulk conversion and updating copies of KC GIs open data. It’s a wrapper for ogr2ogr, and supports FileGDB to GeoPackage or PostGIS. The project also includes a list of the 590 public datasets with links to their metadata. Fun feature: being able to download everything, or download by KC themes.
