YouthMappers is a global mapping community of university students creating, using, and advocating for open geospatial data and technology. Since the creation of the network in 2015, this has grown to more than 200 chapters, with impactful projects being led and conducted by young people. We’ll share about who we are, how chapters are leveraging open geospatial data and FOSS4G, and any more during this presentation.

OSGeoLive is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Lubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. It is composed entirely of free software, allowing it to be freely distributed, duplicated and passed around. It provides pre-configured applications for a range of geospatial use cases, including storage, publishing, viewing, analysis and manipulation of data. It also contains sample datasets and ...

MoveTK is a reusable, well tested, high performant, feature-rich library that incorporates state of the art algorithms for computational movement analysis. The library is designed to be extensible such that it can be adapted for various movement analysis tasks. The library has been developed as part of a collaboration between HERE Technologies, Eindhoven University of Technology and Utrecht University under the Commit2Data program. This talk is intended to showcase the scalability of MoveTK to ...

Iaso is a platform created to support geo-rich data collection efforts, mainly in public health in emerging countries. The key feature that it supports is that any survey is linked to an organizational unit that is part of a canonical hierarchy. Each one of these org units can have a location and a territory. The mobile data collection tool can be used to enrich this hierarchy with additional GPS coordinates, names corrections, etc ... which can then be validated by officials of the ...

After moving to Minsk, I pondered on making a local map for my neighbourhood, with all the shops and amenities. People would visit it on the web and see where are things.

We will be working on data from the oficial source (Bolivia's Organo Electoral Plurinacional) on both the Presidential Elections 2019 and 2020: on the Recinto level of aggregation, excluding data from outside of Bolivia. We will then apply over the datasets some of Pythons Pysal and R tools for Spatial Analysis, side by side. Think of it as a two flavoured (and pure Open Source) solved geospatial exercise.
