Objective

Go through code and demos for 3 interesting map-related projects.

Description

I will speak about and demo 3 map-based projects:

1> ChaloBEST - over the past few months, a group of us in Mumbai worked with data from the BEST to generate a GTFS feed and setup an OpenTripPlanner instance, viewable at http://trip.chalobest.in/

2> Mapwarper.net - a tool to geo-locate raster maps, developed by Topomancy LLC and open-sourced, allows one to create overlays of historical maps and offers other exciting possibilities.

3> pad.ma/maps - The pad.ma video archive allows one to geo-locate segments of video and then view video clips associated with a location - http://pad.ma/maps

Requirements

an open mind
