maybe gitter is better?

hey all, project looks interesting! I'm not sure it's quite where I need it to be at the moment.
in particular, I'm trying for something on the frontend that is more lines/routing based, but the backend could likely borrow from other geospatial/similar-styled CMSes, which was how I got on this exploratory path
https://boston-cyclists-union.github.io/bikeways4everybody/ im thinking of forking off this frontend, seems to be pretty close to what i had in mind

Great news - we've been selected to hack on Mapseed for the Collective Intelligence for Democracy 2017 sponsored by the City of Madrid. We are working with PhD candidate Erika Whillas on designing a community collaboration tool for urban green space planning

Hey all, FYI we have a version of the static site deployment staged at dev.mapseed.org and an SSL version at: https://dev.mapseed.org
Both of those are being hosted directly on our S3 bucket, backed by a CDN and an auto-renewing SSL cert. In other words, the site will be fast, cheap, and scalable. We are still working out the bugs though, so keep us posted on any issues

Here's a use of maps that I've never considered: http://www.markermusic.com/
It might be a cool idea for an art project on the Duwamish. Like "create your own duwamish river soundtrack".

Here's an interesting call for proposals to showcase various maps: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/cugos/AkTyGPAZqj0/Vk9jqVtLAAAJ I think we'd be competitive for the "Best Online Interactive (Web) Map" category.

Unfortunately, it looks like the conference is all the way in Olympia. Travelling to Evergreen State could be fun though, and winning an award with some cash prizes would be great for the project. But I'm not sure it's worth the time to submit and travel down there.

Mozilla just released their 2018 Internet Health Report with a really great design and interesting content for all of humanity to ponder. I'd like to think that we're doing our part with the Mapseed project to bring open source community mapping to folks who need it most.

Message from Tiff on the HeyDuwamish OpenSeattle slach channel: tifychan [10:26 AM]
Hey! Just letting you all know that Washington's Regional EPA Contact, Running Grass will be at the upcoming Open Seattle meetup next Wednesday. Running Grass is a long time environmentalist and is well respected for his work in climate justice and environmental efforts within diverse communities. He will be doing the opening presentation on his work in environment, centered around EJ Screen (https://www.epa.gov/ejscreen) - an environmental justice screening and mapping tool. I think the work that Hey Duwamish does connects well to this particular topic and speaker. I hope to see you all at the upcoming meetup (https://www.meetup.com/openseattle/events/qthpcnyxgbhc/) let me know if you have any questions.

is anyone planning to go next Wednesday? I think the above link is mangled; the event is here: https://www.meetup.com/openseattle/events/qthpcnyxgbhc/

Here's another map-based survey tool I came across today: https://www.socialpinpoint.com/

It's apparently in use locally for Link Light Rail planning: https://wsblink.participate.online/alternatives

Seattle Transit Blog calls it

a neat comment system that allows you to place notes over an interactive map of the representative project alignment and vote on the comments of others. The comments can be sorted by the number of “likes”, providing a rough way of gauging the popularity of particular ideas, which makes the lives of us bloggers a bit easier. It seems to be a hit too, with over 600 comments generated in the first week of going online

With all the transit planning going on in Seattle, we might want to think of ways of positioning Mapseed to meet this need.

Trevor Croxson
@goldpbear
also makes me think that the story builder and summary tools will be an important way to distinguish mapseed from competitors

Very interested to see what happens with Github next...

Gitlab may become more appealing after the year ends

Luke Swart
@modulitos
Yeah, I've got my eye on Gitlab too, but let's wait until the dust settles. Their free Gold/Ultimate tiers look interesting: https://about.gitlab.com/2018/06/05/gitlab-ultimate-and-gold-free-for-education-and-open-source/
Kinda random, but here is a fellowship that we might consider applying for: https://www.echoinggreen.org/fellowship

What do you all think of the new React Native AR SDK from Mapbox? Could be fun to experiment with

@goldpbear
it seems cool, although still pretty early in its development. The github page links to this getting started guide: https://docs.viromedia.com/docs/quick-start

but that landing page tho! :)

yeah the shadow effect on the building is pretty impressive

What do you all think of Apple's new announcement of Mapkit JS?
https://developer.apple.com/maps/mapkitjs/

@futuresoup
basically looks only relevant if there's a need to use the proprietary Apple Maps data. Not sure what they have that OSM doesn't

Anyone planning to go to Open Seattle tomorrow?
