Sunday, July 23, 2006: 1:00 pm (Area "A"): Digital mapping is the ideal information sharing medium for urban explorers, war walkers, and travelers alike. Powerful open source geographical information system (GIS) software such as GRASS exists for users of all computer platforms to explore, analyze, and digitize custom maps. A brief overview of mapping will be given and then GRASS will be used to demonstrate how to make an annotated bike trip map around New York City. The Google Maps API for making customized maps will also be explained and demonstrated.

Hosted by Mike Dvorak and Paul Suda
