We are excited to highlight the proposed lightning talks for Geo4LibCamp 2024!

We have lightning talks proposed on the following topics:
  • Open-Source Georeferencing and Curating with Allmaps
  • GeoBlacklight Allmaps Plugin
  • Enhancing Access to Digital Aerial Photography at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
  • The UC approach: Single code base, separate deployments
  • What is the National Geospatial Advisory Committee?
  • Using Text Recognition to Georeference Aerial Photos?
  • Ephemeral Geospatial Data: An Impending Dark Age
  • Using Aardvark to Drive Public Health Data Discovery
  • GeoServer and You: Or how I learned to stop worrying and ask Eliot to fix our ‘talk to GeoServer’ problems
In addition to the lightning talks, there will be two workshop offerings:

GeoBlacklight for Beginners & Advanced GeoBlacklight: Voyaging Beyond Core
  • An introduction to the GeoBlacklight software with guided techniques for installation and customization.
Medley of Metadata Workflows
  • Creating geospatial metadata for GeoBlacklight using a variety of techniques from manual cataloging to batch harvesting to python scripting.

Just a reminder, if you haven’t registered yet for Geo4LibCamp please register as soon as possible -- there is still time!
Geo4LibCamp is a hands-on meeting for anyone interested in how libraries can manage and provide access to geospatial resources. This event is often attended by map librarians, metadata specialists, application developers, geospatial professionals, and educators. The main focus is to share best-practices, solve common problems, and address technical issues with integrating geospatial data into a repository and associated services. For the purposes of the camp, we broadly define geospatial data from scanned maps and aerial photography to highly structured shapefiles.

Please see the Geo4LibCamp website for venue information, a tentative agenda, and more!

We hope to see you there!
