    i lived in antwerp for about a year and a half as a kid, so it has an even deeper draw
    haven’t been back since i was 13

    I think there's a hack day planned the day after the conference.
    But we could prepare something quick for a lightning talk
    Seth Fitzsimmons
    @mojodna
    plus the HOT Summit
    you should do that anyway! i can help remotely if i’m not there in person
    Guillaume Rischard
    @grischard
    I'd hate to take all the undeserved glory. You have to come now ;)
    Seth Fitzsimmons
    @mojodna
    yours for the taking. it is an open* project, after all ;-)
    i’ll keep the channel posted
    as should you all
    (who else is going?)
    Guillaume Rischard
    @grischard
    Ah, the usual European suspects of course, but I don't really know who else.
    Hopefully Richard Fairhurst and Andy Allan, they could be interested in it for their bicycle maps
    Seth Fitzsimmons
    @mojodna
    Andy and i talked a bit in NYC last year at SotM US, but it was still pretty early
    i need to write up the process by which the mapzen terrain data turns into hillshades and stuff for maps.stamen.com/terrain
    (i think it’s pretty neat, particularly because it checks the “serverless” buzzword box)
    Guillaume Rischard
    @grischard
    And hopefully one day tutorials on how to use it for generating tiles
    Seth Fitzsimmons
    @mojodna
    if you have specific requests for tutorials, would you mind opening some issues for tracking?
    Guillaume Rischard
    @grischard
    Sure. I'll think about it.
    Stuff like how to add a source, how to use it instead of srtm, how to credit it, how to add your own proprietary source, etc.
    Seth Fitzsimmons
    @mojodna
    i’m working with @clhenrick this afternoon to implement the zoom-specific resampling from http://www.shadedrelief.com/web_relief/ and possibly different methods of generating hillshades
    so we’ll see if we can write some of that up

    @smathermather
    FWIW, I'll be at SOTM.

    Anyone of you at foss4g in bonn currently?
    Seth Fitzsimmons
    @mojodna
    i think @lossyrob may be. you should track him down if you can.
    ungarj
    @ungarj
    I will, thanks!
    Just discovered this
    ungarj
    @ungarj
    There will be a talk about it tomorrow afternoon
    Stephen Mather
    @smathermather
    Very cool @ungarj. I'll be interested in seeing more on that.

    Seth Fitzsimmons
    @mojodna
    @grischard: forgot to let you know that i am going to SotM after all. arrived this morning
    Guillaume Rischard
    @grischard
    @mojodna great! Run into you tomorrow hopefully.

    @yohanboniface
    mojodna: hey around? :) The idea of a world wide terrain in the humanitarian style raises again, so I wonder how much of this project I could reuse
    but I fail to find a clear starting point and project status
    Nathaniel V. KELSO
    @nvkelso
    @yohanboniface check out Marble
    Seth’s
    Marblecutter repo on github which was used for Mapzen’s v2 terrain tiles. The global build is available as a free Amazon public dataset
    mobile Interface for text entry not working well else I’d paste a link
    Yohan Boniface
    @yohanboniface
    ok, thanks nvkelso, I'll have a look at this :)
    Yohan Boniface
    @yohanboniface
    humm, still a bit lost in all those github repos, openterrain, map-openterrain, terrain-classic
    I'm able to run terrain-classic with kosmtik but… there is no terrain :p
    seems this is supposed to be displayed by tessera, but the source seems dead (http://hillshades.openterrain.org.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/positron/{z}/{x}/{y}.png that is)
    nvkelso: any more hints to find the "global build available as a free Amazon public dataset"? :)
