Dare we say... mappy hour? | Comp Plan Map App and the Regional Equity Atlas
Thursday, November 14, 2013
5:30 PM to 7:00 PM
Lucky Lab | 915 Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard, Portland, OR (map)
You like maps. You like Portland. You like beer. You like meetups.
Come to Lucky Lab for a discussion of two new web-based mapping applications dedicated to regional equity and planning issues:
Portland's Comprehensive Plan Map App
Coalition for a Livable Future's Regional Equity Atlas 2.0
Have a drink with GIS staff and developers from the City of Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, the Coalition for a Livable Future, and Metro, who will discuss how the apps were built and how you can use them to learn about planning and equity issues facing Portland and the Metro region. Focus will be on the development frameworks, APIs, and server-side stuff used to build these mapping and public engagement tools. We'll also touch on what works, what does not, what we'd do differently if we could start from scratch, and what we'd love to do if we could figure out how (that's where you come in). Be fun! If not, there's the beer.
No sign-up required... just show up. Room holds 60.
