YPG Networking Event with Open Street Mapping
Have you ever wanted to start working with Open Street Map (OSM), but don’t know where to begin? Join us on March 14 from 6-8PM at the USGIF Headquarters located at 2325 Dulles Corner Blvd, Suite 450 in Herndon, VA. Volunteers will give an introduction to OSM and the tools used. We’ll even do some digitizing!
Bring a laptop and be prepared to learn and have some fun!
Snacks and beverages will be provided. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business, Monday, March 11.
Another good online resource for learning basic Web development is the W3Schools Website (http://www.w3schools.com/default.asp).
The American Red Cross web pages are a great resource if you are looking for a links to geospatial data warehouses–particularly data sets used in responding to disasters. Check out the following for more info: http://maps.redcross.org/website/Links/ARC_Disaster_Links_Resources.html
Volunteer your geospatial skills at: http://www.redcross.org/support/volunteer/opportunities. The American Red Cross also has internships and paid positions; some are for GIS professionals. (Note: the easiest way to volunteer with the Red Cross as a geospatial professional is likely to be as a GIS Corps member!)
“On Feb 21, 2013 Penn State announced that it will join several dozen universities in offering massive open online courses or MOOCs via the for profit Coursera company. Among the Penn State MOOCs to be offered later this year is what is believed to be the first geography or GIS MOOC: Maps and the Geospatial Revolution. Its author, Dr. Anthony Robinson discusses the role of MOOCs at Penn State and the development of the first Geo-MOOC.”
