@mappingmashups 10:05am Would also love to hear the #GISChat people’s votes for the #topgeostoryof2013 mappingmashups.net/2013/12/06/vot…

@mappingmashups 11:38am Great nominees for the #topgeostoryof2013 tweeted by @re_sieber in the last few days. Definitely worth perusing. RTs = votes! #geowebchat

@Brobdingnag 11:52am New GoogleMaps? @googlemaps #topgeostoryof2013

@mappingmashups 11:59am Here are some “interesting maps” of 2013 from @GISLounge. gislounge.com/interesting-ma… Any #topgeostoryof2013 contenders here? #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:00pm Hi everyone, and welcome to the last #geowebchat of the year. For the next hour we’ll be talking about (& voting for) the #topgeostoryof2013

@mappingmashups 12:00pm If you don’t want to follow along, see if your twitter client can mute the hashtag #geowebchat and/or #topgeostoryof2013.

@MapHugger 12:02pm Can “@MapBox does every cool thing ever” count as #topgeostoryof2013? #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:03pm If you want to follow the #geowebchat, try using twitterfall.com where you can search for both hashtags. Or: twitter.com/search?q=%23ge…

@re_sieber 12:03pm @mappingmashups for today’s #geowebchat, what’s the preferred hashtag? That or #topgeostoryof2013? Using 2 hashtags cuts down on characters.

@mappingmashups 12:03pm @MapHugger It can, and I’ve already received many votes to that effect. :) #geowebchat #topgeostoryof2013

@mappingmashups 12:04pm @re_sieber I think we should stick to #geowebchat. Including #topgeostoryof2013 is optional. But I will record both in the transcript.

@re_sieber 12:04pm .@mappingmashups I have ~30-40 #topgeostoryof2013. So RT at will #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:06pm We’ll spend the first half of this #geowebchat as a discussion, and you are free to keep voting. In the 2nd half hour I’ll tally the votes.

@re_sieber 12:07pm I vote for the rise of geolocative predictive intelligence w Moto X as a #topgeostoryof2013 #geowebchat Not just your traces but where u go

@mappingmashups 12:07pm Last year there were a few other geo blogs that posted top 10 lists for 2012, but I didn’t see anything similar for 2013. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:08pm Here’s the link for @re_sieber’s vote about the Moto X. I hadn’t read that one. technologyreview.com/news/514366/wi… #geowebchat #topgeostoryof2013

@re_sieber 12:09pm RT #topgeostoryof2013, decline of #geotagging & location tracking turned off, which has huge implications for geog research #geowebchat

@JeremyCrampton 12:10pm I nominate #NSA revealing they can and do geolocational tracking of mobile phones (and prob. same for #FBI) #geowebchat

@re_sieber 12:11pm Nearly half of teens have turned off location tracking marketingland.com/pew-nearly-hal… #topgeostoryof2013 #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:13pm How about the wave of neogeo DIY pedagogy? @cartoDB’s #MapAcademy, @tmcw’s #mapschool, & #maptime at @stamen & other locations.. #geowebchat

@re_sieber 12:23pm RT #topgeostoryof2013 Rise of #OSM, in # users, @hotosm new GUIs, probs w Google, Apple #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:25pm @re_sieber Definitely lots of #OSM stories to vote for. Don’t forget the new iD editor, which is a huge deal. #geowebchat #topgeostoryof2013

@mappingmashups 12:43pm Okay, I had to make some arbitrary groupings for some of these, but here come the top 10 entries for the #topgeostoryof2013 #geowebchat…

@mappingmashups 12:44pm #10 Release of QGIS 2.0 and the dropping of “Quantum”. The premier open source GIS takes a big step forward. #geowebchat #topgeostoryof2013

@SterlingGIS 12:46pm @mappingmashups DIY neogeography sites you mentioned are largely made possible because of HTML5 and SaaS cloud tech. rising #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:46pm #9 @jshkatz’s dialect maps were voted as the most popular maps of the year by #geowebchat readers. spark.rstudio.com/jkatz/SurveyMa… #topgeostoryof2013

@mappingmashups 12:48pm #8 @MapBox’s dynamic hillshading by @mourner is one of many @MapBox faves on the #topgeostoryof2013 list mapbox.com/blog/dynamic-h… #geowebchat

@re_sieber 12:48pm .@SterlingGIS @mappingmashups In 2013, we saw the rise (ie actual use) of SaaS for both GIS & #neogeoweb #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:49pm #7 The “year of @openstreetmap” was represented by #OSM hitting 1 million users blog.openstreetmap.org/2013/01/06/1-m… #topgeostoryof2013 #geowebchat

@stamenglo 12:49pm #topgeostory2013 #geowebchat Surely it was @stamen hiring @mappingmashups!!!

@SterlingGIS 12:50pm @mappingmashups Now QGIS has a professional-looking interface I imagine it being more competitive. That stuff counts. #geowebchat

@re_sieber 12:51pm .@mappingmashups Hmm, your 10 #topgeostoryof2013 is a bit product heavy #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:51pm #6 Notable successes, failures, & sudden rebirths in #hyperlocal news (@Nextdoor @PatchTweet @everyblock etc) #topgeostoryof2013 #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:53pm #5 The year of alternative geo pedagogy: @A_C_Robinson’s maps #MOOC, #mapacademy, #maptime, #mapschool, etc #topgeostoryof2013 #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:55pm #4 Revelations about NSA #geosurveillance (and other geo-tracking stories) #topgeostoryof2013 #geowebchat

@mhaklay 12:55pm @SterlingGIS @mappingmashups strange how ‘professional looking’ == ArcGIS. Why can’t QGIS rethink GIS interface? #geowebchat

@SterlingGIS 12:56pm #OpenStreetMap got some worldwide press around the Haiyan relief mapping. Will it have a hockey stick moment in 2014? #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 12:56pm #3 @hotosm’s activation for Typhoon #Haiyan/#Yolanda. Biggest #crisismapping effort since Haiti? Bigger? #topgeostoryof2013 #geowebchat

@bethschechter 12:57pm +1 #5 The year of alternative geo pedagogy: @A_C_Robinson maps #MOOC, #mapacademy, #maptime, #mapschool, etc #topgeostoryof2013 #geowebchat

@SterlingGIS 12:58pm @mhaklay @mappingmashups I refer to the cyan and magenta icons for adding data and the multiple labeling dialogs pre 2.0. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 1:03pm Votes for @MapBox’s vector maps & cloudless atlas didn’t make the cut, but certainly solidified their #topgeostoryof2013 ranking #geowebchat

@mappingmashups 1:05pm Thanks everybody for a great year of #geowebchat! See you on Jan 7. Add webcal://bit.ly/geowebchatcal to your calendar & never miss a chat.

@mhaklay 1:07pm I’m joining too late – great list of #topgeostoryof2013 but how the $1B for Waze which mean a price tag for VGI is missing? #geowebchat
