For over an hour, a group of us has been discussing geospatial mapping, with special interests in open source software for research and pedagogy. It’s been a great, productive conversation and sharing session. Hopefully this is the start to much more collaborative opportunities!
Anyone interested in playing more with maps, feel free to drop by the University of Connecticut MAGIC library. Also, for the UConn community, Kate Johnson is happy to work with people, so email her katharine.johnson [at] uconn.edu.
Some of our interests include mapping:
Documents and events from late medieval Dublin
Imaginary places/landscapes in medieval French literary texts
Historic New England
Urban greenery across US cities
Analysis of emergency care in US cities
Some links follow! (Many of these links I’ve compiled over the past year as examples of things I’m interested in, some older, some newer.)
Lots of information and data at the University of Connecticut MAGIC site
One of my favorites: DMMmaps
GeoServer is an open source software server written in Java that allows users to share and edit geospatial data
