Greetings fellow GISers,
It will be cool and showery on Wednesday so we'll move back indoors for this month's Happy Hour at the Mount Hood Brewing Company, 401 SE Caruthers Street. We'll try to take over the rail cars on the river side of the pub facing Tillikum Crossing.I'll try and establish a presence there by ~ 5:15. They don't offer happy hour prices, so beers are $5.50. The menu is pizza oriented.
By bike its easiest to ride along the east waterfront/Esplanade to get there. Streetcar and Max also stop nearby.
For those of you in San Diego this week, you shouldn't miss all the fun.

The ninth annual OSBEELS Symposium is quickly approaching and we will once again be hosting the College Student Showcase at this year’s event. Similar to prior years, we’re inviting all of our state’s ABET-accredited programs and student engineering and land surveying-related clubs to participate and showcase the great work done by students. We’re extending invitations to student clubs, research teams, campus organizations, and program ambassadors to join this event.
This year’s Symposium will take place on Friday, Sept. 13, at the Salem Convention Center. The event’s program will feature presentations on a wide range of engineering and land surveying topics. We’re planning on having the College Student Showcase event take place during the afternoon portion of the event. There is no cost to host a booth and lunch will be included.
Our Board feels the showcase is a great opportunity for students to display their work, converse with professionals, and learn more about the work being done in our state. Students are invited to arrive early to set up their booths, enjoy lunch, and remain at the event following the College Student Showcase program should they wish too. Please let me know if you have a student group interested in participating!

Their goal for this project is to inspire others to bike more often. Their data begins focused on Portland, OR as that is where they work and cycle. They've seen the city grow over the past few years and would like to offer safer routing options that learn with the cyclist and are always ready to improve. They may also need cycling volunteers willing to ground truth some cycling routes! Come find out more about their project and the great work they are doing.
Here is a link to their Blog with more information on the project: https://dymaptic.com/navigation,/cycling/2019/03/12/ai-cycling-navigation.html

Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100,000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organisations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.
