Technology change has created an inflection point for geodata. Mobile devices, social media, retail transactions, and more generate a tremendous amount of data. The volume, variety, and velocity of data is ever increasing. What do we do about it?
Technology change has created an inflection point for geodata. Mobile devices, social media, retail transactions, and more generate a tremendous amount of data. The volume, variety, and velocity of data is increasing. New technologies are being developed to handle the huge amounts of data. The problem is more complex than simply having a big relational database. This talk will present an overview of open source geospatial technologies which enable big geodata on the server and little geodata on devices and other clients to make it useful with the right context at the right time. More than technology for technology's sake, use it to do something meaningful.
Mobile Map Tools is an open source framework and library for writing mobile mapping applications, founded by Glob3 Mobile. The Mobile Map Tools users have a common API to develop amazing map apps on their preferred platform. It offers high performance visualization implemented natively on each platform such as Android, iOS, and Web.
This presentation by Diego Gomez Deck, CTO of Glob3 Mobile, will provide an introduction and overview of the features Mobile Map Tools offers.
Every organization working with geospatial data eventually faces the problem of managing its information and assets as they change over time. Versioning of geospatial data has been an issue for any workflow that involves more than one individual. Questions like who changed what and when become hard to answer, and while versioning approaches have existed for a while, they are cumbersome to use and utilize old paradigms. GeoGit takes concepts and lessons learned from the open source programming world and applies them to management of geospatial information, allowing better and decentralized management of versioned data and enabling new and innovative workflows for collaboration.
