MOOCs, Maps, and the Geospatial Revolution - Sharing the digital classroom with 48,000 students

MOOCs, Maps, and the Geospatial Revolution - Sharing the digital classroom with 48,000 students | geocomputational statistics and GIS | Scoop.it
Just the facts

Last year saw the emergence of the first Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) focused on geospatial topics. Developed at Penn State, Maps and the Geospatial Revolution enrolled over 48,000 students from 150+ countries.  In addition to offering a new (free) way to access skills and...

OpenGeo : Palantir: An Open Source Development Success Story

OpenGeo : Palantir: An Open Source Development Success Story | geocomputational statistics and GIS | Scoop.it
Palantir's data platform, Gotham, enables data integration, search and discovery, knowledge management, secure collaboration, and algorithmic analysis across a wide variety of data sources.

ComplexInsight's curator insight, May 5, 2013 9:06 PM

Palantir teamed with the OpenGeo to extend PostGIS to support WGS84 coordinate system and geodetic coordinates. This enabled Palantir to migrate from Oracle spatial to PostGIS as the underpinning spatial database for their Gotham platform.  The benefits to the wider spatial community are signficiant since WGS84 based mapping is often a requirement in government and geoscience applications. Palantir's sponsored open source development undertaken by OpenGeo enables other to take advantage of the new features and integrate PostGIS into workflows.

The decision to apply the CC0 Public Domain waiver to the metadata will greatly improve interoperability with Europeana, Europe‚Äôs equivalent of the DPLA. Now that more different initiatives start publishing digitised heritage and its metadata, interoperability becomes more and more important in order to create a linked web of cultural heritage data, instead of new data silos. By both choosing the CC0 Public Domain waiver, Europeana and the DPLA take a great a step forward in achieving their goal.

DrDids's insight:

well said! see also the ISO standards for data quality as well as the one concerning geospatial data ISO19157

Nonetheless I liked the distinction between what we can called also intrinsec quality (described here as derived from the data provider) and the extrinsec quality depnding on the usage of this data. This is called usability in the ISO19157 which can be also described by the provider but not only!

First beautiful picture ... and if we re-scoop this it may become buzz ... then we will have acted like a swarm does! but I guess what is really interesting is when something goes buzz and modify itself at the same time and then another buzz mixes with it creating a quite new ... that's quite complex as one cna only identify the origin at the beginning of the mix of things  / ideas etc.!

This is the BPMN representation of the SIEL model (Loireau et al. (2006)) some interesting error propagation studies betwen categories (e.g. soil), quantitative attribute (e.g. biomass), positions (e.g. vegetaion map) etc ...are currently investigated. These would make such scientific geoworklfow models very useful for decision making. 

Can meta-propagation with multivariate uptake using copula distribution be more than a theoretical solution? 

I think that would do a very interesting PhD. email me if you are interested!

When MonteCarlo envelopes are too narrow to show! - Talisman | geocomputational statistics and GIS | Scoop.it

Concernig geosTapial datA anaLysIS and siMulAtioN  (TASLISMAN project)  the k-spatial entropy is quite an interesting measure to describe spatial patterns and their evolutions. Testing the significance may involves MonteCarlo re-sampling for the NULL hypothesis, but plotting multiple variable evolutions with their envelopes may necessitate a magnifier to be able to see something ... here is a very simple solution which could be applied to any similar issues!

Monde : combien d'hommes au km2 ? | geocomputational statistics and GIS | Scoop.it

Geography graduate student Derek Watkins has some fun with population densities in an interactive version of William Bunge's The Continents and Islands of Mankind. The above shows areas in the world where there are at least 15 people per square mile. In the interactive, a slider lets you shift that number up to 500 where only a few spots in the world remain.
