Digital maps dot the landscape of the Internet and our mobile devices. And for the most part, these maps live in a perpetual NOW. But one thing often overlooked in the rush for geo-currency is the amazing ability of maps and their associated location information to tell compelling stories about our shared history.
The panelists, operating in the design, marketing, cultural heritage and not-for-profit sectors, are expert in bringing historic digital geospatial data to bear to create useful contemporary tools and services.
The panelists will share their insight on building contemporary, cutting-edge tools and projects that leverage open source technologies such as Omeka, GeoServer, OpenLayers and many others, while bringing attention to the importance of preserving our digital geographic cultural heritage for the long-term benefit of commerce, entertainment and history.
