#geowebchat transcript: 4 March 2014: Favorite maps, favorite apps #favemapfaveapp

@re_sieber Mar 02, 11:18pm .@mappingmashups if you have no topic; the #geowebchat could be my fave map; my fave app. #paleogo & #neogeo

@mappingmashups Mar 03, 12:23pm Tomorrow on #geowebchat: share your favorite map and/or map app! Join us, Tuesday March 4, 12pm PST #favemapfaveapp

@re_sieber Mar 03, 8:11pm To jumpstart #favemapfaveapp on #geowebchat: 22 Maps That Explain The Centuries-Long Conflict In Ukraine talkingpointsmemo.com/cafe/22-maps-t…

@mappingmashups Mar 04, 11:01am On #geowebchat, we’re sharing our fave maps of all time. What’s on your “desert island” map playlist? Join today at noon! #favemapfaveapp

@mappingmashups Mar 04, 11:03am I’ll pick @enf’s Locals and Tourists maps as among my favorites of all time: flickr.com/photos/walking… #geowebchat pic.twitter.com/w2FW9DQZkS

@mappingmashups Mar 04, 11:04am .@enf’s Locals & Tourists maps are not only beautiful, but they also tell us so much about cities and how people use them. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Mar 04, 11:07am Also @enf’s twist to deduce Locals/Tourists from patterns not visible at first. Differentiates from other social media maps. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Mar 04, 11:09am I feel like I could teach a whole class about urbanism and about social media using nothing but flickr.com/photos/walking…. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Mar 04, 11:11am Tweet your #favemap/#faveapp during #geowebchat today, and tell us _why_ they’re your favorite! Will post summary at mappingmashups.net

@marisagreen Mar 04, 11:20am @mappingmashups I don’t have just one #favemap – I have a whole Pinterest board: pinterest.com/mwg25/i-love-m… #geowebchat

@evanlandman Mar 04, 11:26am I love pdxlivebus.com #favemap #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 11:52am @marisagreen Fabulous counter-pinning: RT I don’t have just one #favemap – I have a whole Pinterest board pinterest.com/mwg25/i-love-m… #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 11:59am My #favemap: Minard’s map of Napoleon’s disastrous march to Russia. Concise, hi dens info, comprehensible #geowebchat en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mina…

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:01pm Start the tweeting: #myfavemapmyfaveapp #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:03pm #myfaveapp is actually the suite of tools @ d3js.org #geowebchat

@sidewalkballet Mar 04, 12:03pm @re_sieber Here’s some revisions of Minard’s map datavis.ca/gallery/re-min… #geowebchat

@skorasaurus Mar 04, 12:05pm @tilemill / beautiful web maps / free / open-source / responsive, friendly devs / great docs / #myfaveapp #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:05pm .@sidewalkballet And datavis.ca/gallery/re-min… doesn’t try to distort (eg w georegistration) the beauty of the map #geowebchat

@SeanGorman Mar 04, 12:06pm @re_sieber here is a fun interactive version of Minard’s map humangeo.github.io/leaflet-dvf/ex… #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:08pm Books containing #myfavemap Else/Where, You are Here. Maps don’t have to be georegistered or be warped to fit Google Earth #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:14pm #myfavemap or is it #myfaveapp (paleo edition) polynesian navigation charts webodysseum.com/history/polyne… #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:14pm #myfavemap book Chief Kerry’s Moose: A Guidebook to Land Use and Occupancy Mapping, Research Design and Data Collection #geowebchat

@sidewalkballet Mar 04, 12:16pm One of some #myfavemap: identical place names across America — not many unique names, it seems fakeisthenewreal.org/conpl/ #geowebchat

@skorasaurus Mar 04, 12:17pm it’s hard to keep all of those great maps that I Find organized: I have them on @Pinboard , local bookmarks, evernote, #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:18pm #myfavemap (well, GIS data): The Middle Earth Digital Elevation Model Project me-dem.org #geowebchat

@mjfoster83 Mar 04, 12:20pm I second the vote for @tilemill. Great, useful application. #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:20pm @skorasaurus @Pinboard @marisagreen Great idea to pin #myfavemap s (And, given pushpins, also recursive!) #geowebchat

@skorasaurus Mar 04, 12:21pm wondering if #geowebchat is a little quiet today b/c: we’re all doing taxes and staring in awe at others’ maps.

@MapHugger Mar 04, 12:22pm #geowebchat I’ve already written a whole essay on #myfavemap : maphugger.com/post/253031274…

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:24pm How about map couture w these fab historical map dresses? teacupsandcouture.com/?p=12926 #geowebchat

@erictheise Mar 04, 12:27pm don’t have a favorite map/app to share but did you know phone mapping while driving was ruled ok in cali? qub.me/VqTKnp #geowebchat

@sidewalkballet Mar 04, 12:29pm I spy one of these bibliodyssey.blogspot.ca/2008/10/river-… on those map dresses–maybe not maps, but I dig ‘em regardless. #myfavemap #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:30pm .@erictheise there has to be a recursion joke somewhere in phone mapping while driving:”But I was “watching” the road, officer!” #geowebchat

@erictheise Mar 04, 12:33pm the phone is not the territory, @re_sieber #geowebchat

@mjfoster83 Mar 04, 12:35pm they arent beacons of design, but ive always had a strange affinity for the USGS quads, especially early 20th century versions #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:42pm @mjfoster83 I love UK Ord Survey Maps. Incredible detail; makes you feel you can find the smallest details. I still get lost #geowebchat

@pinakographos Mar 04, 12:45pm #geowebchat I wrote a review of #myfavemap in CP (@NACIS_CP): cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/jour…

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:45pm No votes for waze or foursquare for #myfaveapp? #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:47pm @pinakographos @NACIS_CP That’s a great review & a beautiful map #geowebchat

@sidewalkballet Mar 04, 12:52pm @re_sieber eh I think waze is kinda ugly despite having some good features, usually just use traffic in googlemaps #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:54pm Some of #myfaveapp s are location guessing games like geoguessr.com and locatestreet.com/game.php #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:56pm Never got into geocaching but friends really like geocaching.com/live/ #myfaveapp #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 12:58pm Any last #myfavemap s, #myfaveapp s? #geowebchat

@erictheise Mar 04, 1:00pm most of my favorite maps are on paper (in flat files). always loved the grande randonnée hiking map of france #geowebchat

@re_sieber Mar 04, 1:00pm Thanks everyone for today’s #geowebchat on #myfavemap, #myfaveapp. Small but fun. Pls continue to tweet, pin your maps&apps.

@kennethfield Mar 04, 1:02pm During 2014 we’re doing a daily blog of ‘favourites’ at the ICA Map Design site mapdesign.icaci.org #geowebchat

@sidewalkballet Mar 04, 1:03pm #myfavemap is a heavily annotated, worn and torn paper road map #nostalgia #roadtrip #geowebchat

@mattdance Mar 04, 1:58pm If we’re getting all nostalgic. 1:50000 NTS maps of Ontario with canoe routes & other annotations added. #geowebchat #frenchriver

@mattdance Mar 05, 1:27pm Fellow GeoNerds. If you have not done so already, check out #geowebchat to see some #favemap posts. Nice selection of work.
