Discussion Topics

With so many companies (>60) involved with LocationTech the natural next step is to work to identify open source projects, or existing technology that can be open sourced to rally around. Two areas of particularly high demand have been web components and very high performance data processing. We would like to identify those who are interested in these areas and form sub-teams.

  • Web mapping and esp. common interest in OpenLayers (see related roadmap video)
  • Very high performance processing

(roughly 25 minutes each)
