Thanks for the Support

I’d like to thank everyone who has taken the time to donate to Planet Geospatal. I’m going to start the process of getting a CSS guru to take a look at the formatting and make it much easier (and quicker) to read.

Thank You

The One Where Kate Likes Being in Charge

This week was a fun hangout with my good friend Kate Chapman. Humanitarian OpenStreetMap is a wonderful project that has lots of opportunities to get involved. Kate also talked a bit about what it’s like to work in a developing country and how they are mapping locations around the world. Kate and the rest of the HOT project have worked their butts off and I’m glad to see things moving forward nicely. You can watch the video anytime on the WeoGeo Video page or see an archive of all the previous shows.

Next week’s guest is the one and only, Di-Ann Eisnor of Waze.

This Week’s Hangout:: HOT time in the old OSM tonight

We’ve got a special hangout this week (take this opportunity to start playing the YouTube video below while you read). Kate Chapman, Acting Executive Director at the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (H.O.T) joins us to talk about what HOT is, how it provides mapping services to humanitarian work around the world and how you can be involved. As always we go live tomorrow at 10 am PDT on the WeoGeo Video page.

We’ll be talking on the IRC channel again so either show up to the Hangout page on WeoGeo or better yet, point your IRC client to #hwjf on chat.freenode.net.
