Getting Started with Geospatial Processing and Presentation Services

January 11, 2017


Geospatial is a common part of our lives today. It is an important part of real estate, transportation, engineering and infrastructure and NGOs throughout the world. Mobile devices, wearable technologies and cars collect geolocation data and share it with manufacturers and those willing and able to attain it. We are consumer readily provide our current geolocation through app like facebook, twitter and foursquare. As a developer, how do you begin to process, store and display the wealth of data available. During this talk we will discuss the building blocks of geospatial data, java libraries that can help us process it and how to persist it. Finally, we will look at one presentation technique made available by MapBox.

Presented by Brent Lemons

Brent has been excited by maps and geospatial technologies ever since he started acting as the navigator on family road trips as a child. His first role out of college involved the processing of aircraft positional data and meteorological data mapping for Southwest Airlines. Since that time, he has moved into technology consulting and is a principal with Thought Ensemble. Brent is also a founder of FltCk, a preflight planning tool for private pilots.
