#geowebchat transcript, 7 October 2014: The geoweb and time

@mappingmashups Oct 05, 5:32pm Next #geowebchat topic: “The Geoweb and Time”, inspired by theme for #NACIS2014. Join us 12pm PDT, 3pm EDT, 20:00 BST, Tue Oct 7. Pls RT!

@TheMapSmith Oct 07, 5:06am Driving to #nacis2014 during #geowebchat, so heres a great article by @kennethfield about Esri’s carto-temporal tools blogs.esri.com/esri/esri-insi…

@kennethfield Oct 07, 5:39am Saves me tweeting it. Thanks :) MT @TheMapSmith #geowebchat, a great articleabout Esri’s carto-temporal tools blogs.esri.com/esri/esri-insi…

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 11:46am Relevant to Geoweb & Time: #geowebchat RT @mrogati: Your body doesn’t care about timezones jawbone.com/blog/circadian… pic.twitter.com/p9OLALvP2I

@maptimestl Oct 07, 11:50am Love maps? Get to know the hashtag #geowebchat – next discussion is “The Geoweb and Time” & starts in 10 minutes.

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:01pm Starting now on #geowebchat: Cartography and Time (specifically The Geoweb and Time). Special #NACIS2014-themed chat! How do _you_ map time?

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:02pm As usual with #geowebchat, make sure you include the hashtag in all your tweets. Try something like tweetchat.com/room/geowebchat to follow along

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:04pm A view min ago I posted this interesting @Jawbone viz about timezones & sleep. #geowebchat jawbone.com/blog/circadian… pic.twitter.com/p9OLALvP2I

@eleanortutt Oct 07, 12:06pm Interesting point #geowebchat MT @briantimoney: 2015 Year of Small Multiples pic.twitter.com/BI8PGhOzJE (very few use your time slider anyway)

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:06pm The @Jawbone viz is also an example of time on a static map. Now with the Geoweb animations are easier to do… #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:08pm where does “(very few use your time slider anyway)” come from @eleanortutt? #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:08pm @eleanortutt @briantimoney Okay, we have our first #geowebchat prediction of 2015! Small Multiples! One my my faves: bost.ocks.org/mike/drought/

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:08pm (concerned as i am right now building something with a time slider) #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:12pm @eleanortutt @briantimoney Now I realize that @mbostock drought example uses animation _and_ small multiples. But no slider! #geowebchat

@eleanortutt Oct 07, 12:12pm @erictheise Honestly not sure. That was all @briantimoney. I personally like time sliders, but his tweet was thought provoking. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:16pm One newish tool for mapping time on the web is @cartoDB’s torque. For example, this @GuardianData viz theguardian.com/news/datablog/… #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:17pm would want to back up that conjecture with data. actually i wonder if the stuff @geo_will is working on would vet that. #geowebchat

@eleanortutt Oct 07, 12:17pm @erictheise Add a way to track slider use & prove him wrong! #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:18pm INSTRUMENT ALL THE THINGS! #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:22pm (what @geo_will is working on being sliptics.com) #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:26pm MT @briantimoney analytics of web maps: people know to click on points, some pan/zoom, less familiar elements very little #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:28pm Has anyone in this #geowebchat mapped historical data? Some projects like OpenHistoricalMap haven’t really taken off wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Open_Hist…

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:29pm my #NACIS2014 talk is about 1950s-60s era signs built by an albuquerque company, @mappingmashups, slider shows when/where built #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:30pm interesting to see the dispersion grow from albuquerque route 66 outward over time, as far as arizona and colorado #geowebchat

@PetersonGIS Oct 07, 12:31pm @mappingmashups I’ve created data for the history of U.S. westward expansion and European country boundaries on the eve of WWII. #geowebchat

@eleanortutt Oct 07, 12:31pm So @erictheise talk sounds amazing. Also, mostly b/c of content, I’m a fan of this historic NYC plan map: urbanreviewer.org #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:32pm also to see reinforcement of certain sign-dense stretches of major thoroughfares #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:33pm talk will show a number of their working drawings for the signs, color pencil and ink, @eleanortutt, those are quite striking. #geowebchat

@eleanortutt Oct 07, 12:34pm @mappingmashups Maybe part of challenge w/ historical maps is handling data sources w/ diff availabilities in diff years #geowebchat

@eleanortutt Oct 07, 12:35pm @mappingmashups i.e., I know a building existed in 1940 & didn’t in 1970 – but that’s all I know. So what do I map for 1955? #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:36pm @eleanortutt Yes, or whoever assembled that data might make assumptions for you. #geowebchat

@eleanortutt Oct 07, 12:37pm @mappingmashups To try & solve my own problem, I wonder if changes in layer opacity should be used more often…. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 12:38pm @eleanortutt Forex, was looking at this old @stamen proj hindsight.trulia.com/map/#lat=37.79… which has spike in 1900 (rounding err in data) #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:38pm remarkably deep spec for date/time w/fuzziness, @eleanortutt @mappingmashups, #EDTF, anyone know it? qub.me/c8fHIl #geowebchat

@eleanortutt Oct 07, 12:41pm @erictheise @mappingmashups Nope, but this could be helpful (or cause more pain). #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:42pm p.s. @geo_will confirms that sliptics would satisfy this use case (time slider usage by users) /cc @briantimoney #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:45pm learned about #EDTF in #geojsonld discussion , @sgillies’ project; few implementations, i gather, but thought thru @eleanortutt #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:47pm are your WWII maps online, @PetersonGIS? #geowebchat

@erictheise Oct 07, 12:51pm RT @sgillies @erictheise this too github.com/geojson/geojso… … #geowebchat

@PetersonGIS Oct 07, 12:53pm @erictheise Sadly no. The map is published in “The Guide to U.S. Foreign Policy” by McMahon. #geowebchat

@kennethfield Oct 07, 12:53pm I wrote some stuff about mapping time blogs.esri.com/esri/esri-insi… inc stuff in my #nacis2014 talk #geowebchat

@kennethfield Oct 07, 12:55pm following earlier thread, we’ve done couple of historical maps for WWI arcgis.com/apps/MapJourna… & WWII arcgis-content.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJourna… #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 1:00pm Thanks to everyone who joined today’s #geowebchat about cartography and time. Now I’m off to #NACIS2014 where I hope to see many of you f2f!

@erictheise Oct 07, 1:01pm also hope to see/meet folks at #NACIS2014. #geowebchat

@mappingmashups Oct 07, 1:01pm Next #geowebchat will be in two weeks, on October 21. Topic TBD.

@eleanortutt Oct 07, 1:02pm Thanks @mappingmashups for hosting #geowebchat – that was fun!

@geovis_isprs Oct 07, 2:41pm Check the hashtag #geowebchat for some interesting geo-related discussions. Too late for today but you can still read it!
