  2. GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and FileMaker – Mapping and More

    Make your FileMaker data come to life using interactive maps, spatial queries, and visualizations. Learn how you too can make maps and solve business problems by integrating open source GIS technologies in your FileMaker solutions and websites. This video is a screencast of the original presentation given by Michael Moore and Andy Walz–both expert GIS, web, and FileMaker engineers from Cimbura.com–at FileMaker's 2016 Devcon Unconference and the FMPUG-MN October meetup.

  3. Turf.js is an open-source JavaScript library for spatial analysis that can breathe new life into your web maps and turn your apps into powerful geographic information systems. Turf.js bundles traditional spatial operations, data classification, and statistics tools–all things that have typically require server-side geoprocessing–into a client-side plugin. This means you can build more interactive maps and GIS apps with less overhead and cost.

    Turf.js is surprisingly simple-to-understand. It is comprised of modular, JavaScript functions that speak GeoJSON. There are 51 functions including aggregate, centroid, distance, intersect, merge, simplify, union, tin, within, jenks classification, and more. Turf.js is built using the latest spatial algorithms, it is shockingly fast. Turf.js can also run server-side with Node.js. In this presentation we’ll walk through an overview of commonly used functions, demonstrate how to use the library with Node, and look at some examples of Turf.js in action.

    This is a live recording of:

  4. WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) that powers 25% of the websites on the Internet. Its growth is due in large part to its ease of use and a thriving plugin ecosystem.

    Unfortunately support for GIS data and operations is severely lacking. I believe that geo-enabling popular frameworks like WordPress represents the next big area of growth for GIS on the web. Creating tools that work the way non-GIS admins expect lowers the barrier to entry into the world of GIS.

    I have been experimenting with different approaches to add actual GIS capabilities to WordPress, in a way that is friendly to WordPress users. The results of the successful experiments have resulted in two free WordPress plugins, SavvyMapper and WP_GeoQuery.

    SavvyMapper links WordPress data to GIS data in an external data source such as CartoDB, ArcGIS Server or an external GeoJSON file.

    WP_GeoQuery use MySQL spatial support to store feature geometry right inside the MySQL database.

    In this presentation I will discuss the results of my experiments in more depth, show off the methods I’ve used and talk about the status and future of GIS in WordPress.
