@kalxas not sure what you mean: we have submitted a pygeoapi abstract yesterday (see pygeoapi gitter), the main contact for the conf is Martin Christen, Professor FHNW Basel. He is not in this group but easy to find e.g. linkedin. There is also an open Telegram group for the conf: see http://2020.geopython.net/ (Social Media bottom of page).

Hi everyone, I am new to geopy and python itself. I'm not sure if this is the right forum, and I would be grateful if any of you could point me to the right place for my queries. I know that geopy uses the great circle distance to calculate the distance between two coordinates but I read somewhere that this formula isn't very accurate for short distances. I have a set of stations which can get as close as 5 kilometers from each other, I wanted to know if using geopy.distance is a good idea or if there are more accurate tools for such short distances.

@DJMO3 never heard of geopy but it uses geographiclib . Make your question more specific: 1) are your coordinates lon/lat in WGS84? 2) what level accuracy you want to achieve (percent). Great-circle can be up to 0.5%. Better is to use geodesic distance, supported by geopy. Many geo-folks use proj but looks like your case can be covered with geopy. Their main comm-channel is StackOverflow.

@DJMO3
Thank you for your time. I am using the WGS84 lat/long format but still need some more research and testing to determine the level of accuracy. I will be looking further into the geodesic and proj library too.

Hi all: FYI Joint OSGeo/OGC/ASF sprint 17-19 February 2021:

This is a great opportunity for Geopython projects to converge and collaborate w/ both OGC and Apache. pycsw/pygeoapi/OWSLib projects will be on hand, and it will be great to see others.

The sprint is online/virtual and open to all. See you there!

Hi all: I just realized our Geopython projects presentation (http://geopython.github.io/presentation/) had an import geopython statement.

I’ve since created a first pass vanity package at https://pypi.org/project/geopython/ (source code https://github.com/geopython/geopython), which one can install and run :). As always, contributions welcome.

Hi!

We are building the FOSS4G schedule and we noticed there are a few proposals that are "Live Coding". A developer live codes around some topic (like how to do maps with X and Y) and accepts requests/suggestions from the audience asking how to do stuff.

Is someone brave enough here to want to do a session like this around one of your geopython projects? I am thinking showing how to work with pyWPS or the pyGeoAPI could be pretty interesting :) That could help attracting more members to the communities once they see the project in action.

It's not a workshop in the sense that you don't care if your audience can compile in their laptops or not. It is more like a show in which you as developers demo the project.
We are open to more projects, not necessarily python too.

Hi Maria, this is an interesting idea, we usually submit a geopython workshop (we did submit it again this time)
María Arias de Reyna
@Delawen
And would you be willing to do both? (how was your workshop named? I see two)
Ah, see it
Or change the workshop for this?
I think both are interesting
Tom Kralidis
@tomkralidis
we have a geopython workshop submitted. I’m not sure about the others?
“doing Geospatial with Python"
María Arias de Reyna
@Delawen
Yes. Spoiler: it is on line to be accepted.
But maybe you want to do both things? or prefer the live coding'
?
Tom Kralidis
@tomkralidis
sure. Will there be a "live coding" thread of some sort then?

@justb4
Have been following this trend: "Live Coding as Slow TV". A more or less unprepared format, often in dialogue.
First encountered https://www.twitch.tv/jlengstorf . Just browse some of his videos. Most are on YT like a great episode with Sarah Drasner on Three.js: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXcawneCRHY . They take their time, make mistakes, but very entertaining. There's an enormous amount of live coders on Twitch, just search:
https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all/tags/a59f1e4e-257b-4bd0-90c7-189c3efbf917 Usually there is live interaction with viewers.
We do some live coding in the OSGeo.nl De Grote Geo Show "The Big Geo Show". Maybe we can make an appearance at FOSS4G with some live coding. e.g. our last PostGIS episode had live coding (Dutch, but we all speak English):

Yes
We have three confirmed and a couple more not confirmed
So if you want to add more Live coding sessions, just let me know. We plan to release the calendar next month, so if we could know before ending next week that would be awesome
María Arias de Reyna
@Delawen
So @justb4 do you want to do a live coding session? We are finishing the schedule so we need to know if any of you want to do something like that.

Some geopython presence at FOSS42021:

Hoping to see other/more geopython projects this year :)
