@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:03pm Today’s #geowebchat will follow an unusual format: we’ll kick off the conversation now, but you can keep chatting for the next 24 hrs.
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:04pm …hopefully this will allow people in timezones around the world (especially in the Philippines) join the #geowebchat.
@PetersonGIS Nov 19, 12:07pm What do we map when everything’s gone/flattened? Rhetorical question. #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:08pm I’d like to invite everybody joining the #geowebchat to introduce themselves, & share any experiences or Qs they have about crisis mapping
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:10pm …but I don’t know much about any other crisis-mapping activities that have been going on around #YolandaPH/#Haiyan. #geowebchat
@mpmckenna8 Nov 19, 12:12pm @mappingmashups there should never be a time constraint on people who want to #geowebchat.
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:13pm @mpmckenna8 It is true, that #geowebchat is always happening, in a sense… if you follow it 24/7 like I do!
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:14pm @mpmckenna8 But it is true that our usual time is biased against those in East Asia and Australia in particular… #geowebchat
@re_sieber Nov 19, 12:15pm 1 prob is how to make content expire on #crisismapping sites when info gets old #geowebchat
@re_sieber Nov 19, 12:17pm Also #crisismapping often needs to integrate w telecom like texting. @anabrandusescu found that interop v difficult #geowebchat
@floraandflying Nov 19, 12:17pm I missed #geowebchat or the beginning. Dang.
@mpmckenna8 Nov 19, 12:18pm Hope to hear from someone who is/ was in the #Philippines and benefitting from @openstreetmap in #geowebchat.
@re_sieber Nov 19, 12:19pm Geocoding is v difficult too in #crisismapping. SMS, email, tweets manually geocoded in Ushahidi #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:20pm @floraandflying Nope, you didn’t miss anything Nazila! We’re just starting. #geowebchat
@neogeografen Nov 19, 12:20pm Over all problem for OSM newbees non-english-tech people who want contribute – Where to start #crisismapping etc? #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:23pm @anabrandusescu @re_sieber Are empty maps the result of too many one-off special case maps? #geowebchat
@wisemana Nov 19, 12:25pm @mpmckenna8 the American Red Cross is making maps from OSM and providing them to responders going out there #geowebchat @RBanick
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:27pm RT @neogeografen: @mappingmashups correct – however small languages with small communities it’s takes times to write guides #geowebchat
@anabrandusescu Nov 19, 12:27pm @mappingmashups @re_sieber possibly. i’m searching for more haiyan crowdmap/ushahidi deployments, platform i’m most familiar w #geowebchat
@re_sieber Nov 19, 12:28pm .@mappingmashups @anabrandusescu Mult content on #crisismaps geometry, attributes-Can do geometry but no affected ppl contribute #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:29pm If anyone at #geowebchat wants to listen to the pulse of @hotosm during a crisis activation, you should try IRC: irc://irc.oftc.net/hot
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:30pm RT @skorasaurus: .@wisemana @mappingmashups Yep, the HOT map style was partially funded by @USAIDOTI ;) #geowebchat
@anabrandusescu Nov 19, 12:31pm i’ve used crisis platform crowdmap for com dev. have not dealt directly w crises but wonder about digital/physicall connectivity #geowebchat
@skorasaurus Nov 19, 12:33pm @re_sieber good pt on expriring content & #crisismapping . w/ #osm, local community to update it is required, as done in haiti #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:39pm @skorasaurus @anabrandusescu Who was been supporting the development of a local OSM community in Haiti post-quake? @hotosm? #geowebchat
@re_sieber Nov 19, 12:43pm .@skorasaurus Katrina map was example of victims providing content that obsolesced. Never knew whether it was still pertinent #geowebchat
@neogeografen Nov 19, 12:43pm one of the best idea to learn new OSM people #crisismapping like Heidelberg University GIScience did – have a mappingparty #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:46pm @neogeografen Mapping parties are great way to get new OSMers started. Did anyone attend the DC #crisiscamp this weekend? #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:47pm @anabrandusescu @skorasaurus Is it harder to appeal to funding bodies to get $ for post-disaster support? #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:47pm RT @skorasaurus: 2 HOT missions have been back to haiti since ’10; led to creation of 2 local OSM orgs in North & st. marc. #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:49pm RT @bricker: @mappingmashups @anabrandusescu @skorasaurus is that because of timing issues? #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 12:51pm @bricker @anabrandusescu @skorasaurus Just thinking that funders like paying for something new, not supporting smthing ongoing #geowebchat
@re_sieber Nov 19, 12:51pm @mappingmashups @anabrandusescu @skorasaurus harder to get$ for post-disaster support? #geowebchat Prob is speed &connections to trad relief
@anabrandusescu Nov 19, 12:52pm @mappingmashups @skorasaurus referring 2 change. r bodies communicating differently now while in crisis than in previous crises? #geowebchat
@wisemana Nov 19, 12:58pm @anabrandusescu the American Red Cross is making maps from OSM and providing them to responders going out there #geowebchat cc @RBanick
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 1:01pm Thanks everyone for kicking off this unusual 24-hour #geowebchat. I’ll keep checking in to see how the conversation is going. So should you!
@talldave Nov 19, 1:02pm Looking ahead, is there a task manager for crisis-prone areas that can be mapped now, before a crisis? #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Nov 19, 1:24pm @vtcraghead Cool, I didn’t know that! Nice one, @pascal_n! #geowebchat
