I am always nervous before each and every podcast interview.

Not because I am afraid of working/ learning in public but because want to be respectful of my guest's time and create content that will give the podcast audience value.

Here are the 10 most popular podcast episodes!
In this episode, @geomenke gives a fantastic introduction to #QGIS

How does a city's trauma system come together to both prepare for the expected surge of the #COVIDー19 #pandemic & manage the ongoing #epidemic of #gunviolence & other trauma?

Through a great collaborative effort, we published the #Philadelphia experience in @JTraumAcuteSurg

The full paper is published ahead of print here: journals.lww.com/jtrauma/Citati…

It represents the importance of #teamwork in ensuring a robust, rapid, coordinated effort to manage an evolving threat
3/

Our publication timing coincides with a brutal #July4th weekend where #Philadelphia saw over 30 people shot including several children

But how did the #pandemic and #socialdistancing mandate affect trauma volume in our centers?

The #GeospatialCommission has published a list of 300 or so datasets it says are used during the housing and planning process, and highlights in particular a list of 50, "49 of which are covered by OGL".
gov.uk/government/pub… #Geo6 #ukhousing #geospatial #opendata (or not)

1/n
The GC's list includes some useful datasets, but also quite a few errors. The effect is to overstate the number of #opendata resources that are readily available for the purposes of housing and planning in the UK.

I'll just run through some of the licensing issues …

2/n
Land Registry's INSPIRE Index Polygons are not re-usable under the Open Government Licence in any meaningful sense, because use of the polygons is subject to additional Ordnance Survey terms. gov.uk/guidance/inspi… + ordnancesurvey.co.uk/documents/lice… #deriveddata not-#opendata

Two big announcements today from @GeospatialC:

● release of UPRNs/USRNs under OGL gov.uk/government/new…

● 10-year Public Sector Geospatial Agreement with OS gov.uk/government/new…

Good or bad news for #opendata and the UK's #geospatial strategy?

Let's have a look.

1/n

@GDSteam post on UPRNs/USRNs as #openstandards technology.blog.gov.uk/2020/04/02/ide…

@GeoPlaceLLP press release geoplace.co.uk/news-events/ne…

@OrdnanceSurvey press release on the PSGA ordnancesurvey.co.uk/business-gover…

● OS's updated "Open MasterMap" page ordnancesurvey.co.uk/business-gover…

2/n
The "Open MasterMap" products and APIs mentioned in today's announcement will go live in summer 2020, so there's no #opendata you can download right away.

We don't yet have full specs either. For example OS is still validating its proposal for the Open USRN dataset.

We at @Locale.ai have built a Covid-19 tracking console for Karnataka using the data launched by the Karnataka Government here: lnkd.in/fgZShBv
You can use this console to plan your strategies, groceries and deliveries.

#FlattenTheCurve
Some features on the console:
1. The grids show the aggregated number of quarantined people. & is colored based on density. You can change the resolution of grids in Settings.
2. There are 3 types of filters: Legend filters can be used to filter grids based on severity. The categorical filters are on the right. The location filters can be used to focus on POIs, areas, and places [Try Kormangala Bus Stand]

1/7 Curated list of 3,500+ government #ArcGIS server addresses. All links tested once per week and bad links fixed or flagged. These are ArcGIS servers, not 'portals'.
#URISA #fedGIS #GIS #GISP #GeoSpatial #ESRI #MAPPS @GISLounge @directionsmag
Open PDF:

2/7 @server Admins: If my list says “not https” or “SSL problem” then you can fix that with a free SSL certificate from letsencrypt.org. My domains use these. The “SSL problem” tag in the curated server list means Firefox found something wrong with your SSL certificate.
3/7 To find data quickly on an ArcGIS try a Google advanced search. For example, to find trail layers search on:
trails site:____
Replace the underline with an ArcGIS server address.

1/4 Why is perimeter data on the #Inciweb fire map out-of-date? The Inciweb map simply displays perimeter data that is hosted on the GeoMAC #GIS server. Why doesn’t the GeoMAC server have current perimeter data? #WAfire #ORfire #CAfire #AZfire #COfire #MTfire #GeoSpatial
2/4 For most big fires there usually is a nighttime overflight with infrared sensing gear. Experts analyze that data and determine a new fire perimeter. They also determine areas of intense, scattered and isolated heat. That data is then hosted on the public NIFC FTP server.
3/4 That new fire perimeter eventually shows up on the GeoMAC server and will then appear on the Inciweb map. The problem is that it seems to take a day or more for that perimeter data to go from the NIFC server to the GeoMAC server. Surely that process could be speeded up.
