Hi all, ahead of today's meeting, I just want to share a couple of notes on the Community Day, which is starting to take shape. In the meeting, David will walk us through a discussion so we can share our ideas on what we think this day should/could look like.
I had a discussion with the Perth Geogeeks group last night on their Slack, and they had some excellent suggestions, specifically around the code sprint component. I found it useful to start thinking about what kind of activities we might be hosting, and how we can best facilitate them (without necessarily having to dictate exactly what transpires), so I thought it would be good to share. Here are a few of the comments they had:
I’d like to see JSTS get some love - a project relating to that
Something really useful - maybe a testbed site for the community with generated geometries or something cool like that. Or a harness for polygon generation for generative testing purposes?
Tooling and quality of life improvements that can be discrete smaller projects sound like a great fit. And personally, something I'm more likely to continue contributing to afterwards than one of the main open source spatial projects that are massive or require practicing black magic.
a wiki or such folks can collaborate on and chuck around project ideas would work well
Adding something to GeoJSON.io
Ditto the ogr2ogr web gui
API explorer for <some OGC APIs> that makes life easier for spatial folks and explains stuff in terms non-spatial developers understand
