A simple circle upgrades the State of the Map

Henrique Koehler

 

Estimados amigos,

 

tómo a liberdade de chamar a vossa antenção para a conferencia virtual FOSS4G Korea 2020, session 4: https://foss4g.osgeo.kr/track-english-01

Esse evento possivelmente virá a ser conhecido como o inicio da abolição de codigos de localização enigmaticos, mapas sem grade de referencia, sinalização sem pontos cardeais etc. A idéia surgiu vendo turistas se orientarem em volta do Cristo.

 

Henrique

A simple circle upgrades the State of the Map

Henrique Koehler / Munich Orientation Convention

Nonacademic reference grids A, B, C, 1, 2, 3... are hardly zoomable, so they got unused. Consequently, the State of the Map is a Naked Emperor: no grid at all (!) and the answer to the question "where?" is "here!" www.volksnav.de/YouAreHere . This unworthy situation caused the proliferation of enigmatic location codes, some based on names (!?) www.volksnav.de/alternatives.

 

A simple standard circle www.volksnav.de/r100Seoul and the rebirth of the Time/Space Convention *) will upgrade the State of the Map, create imaginable location codes, help to avoid confusions  www.volksnav.de/confusions etc. etc..

FOSS4G Korea 2020 can have a relevant role on this quantum jump.

 

*)  if I look outwards, right hand is clockwise
