PhilGEOS 2012

Philippine Geomatics: practice, applications and accomplishments

Workshop Topics

OSGeo-PH and the PhilGEOS Organizing team will host a series of pre-symposium workshops showcasing free and open source technologies. This one-day workshop (to be held on November 22, 2012) can be considered as the very first Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) event in the country.

These workshops are FREE. Priority will be given to registered PhilGEOS participants until November 12, 2012. After that, registration will be open to all. You may want to register first to PhilGEOS 2012.

As the workshops focus on the use of software, each participant is required to bring their own laptops/notebook computers. We also encourage the participants to install some of the software to save time during the workshops.

Topics:

  1. Google Maps API

    Description: Google Maps (https://developers.google.com/maps/) has a wide array of APIs that let you embed the robust functionality and everyday usefulness of Google Maps into your own website and applications, and overlay your own data on top of them.

    Lead Facilitator: Wayne Manuel

    Maximum Number of Participants: 20

    Venue: DGE RS/GIS Laboratory, 2nd Floor, Melchor Hall (College of Engineering)

    Schedule: Morning of November 22 (exact time TBA)

  2. Using Leaflet

    Description: Leaflet (http://leaflet.cloudmade.com/) is a modern open-source JavaScript library for mobile-friendly interactive maps. t is built from the ground up to work efficiently on both desktop and mobile platforms like iOS and Android, taking advantage of HTML5 and CSS3 on modern browser.

  3. Editing OpenStreetMap Data

    Description: OpenStreetMap (http://www.openstreetmap.org/) is a project that creates and provides free geographic data and mapping to anyone who wants it. We started it because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive, or unexpected ways. This session will introduce how to to edit data in OpenStreetMap.

    Description: Geonode (http://geonode.org) is an integrated platform for the management and publication of geospatial data. Its data management tools allow for integrated creation of data, metadata, and map visualizations. Each dataset in the system can be shared publicly or restricted to allow access to only specific users. Social features like user profiles and commenting and rating systems allow for the development of communities around each platform to facilitate the use, management, and quality control of the data the GeoNode instance contains.
