On Wednesday, June 11, 2014, members of the Hive Mapping Cooperative presented on their programs and Open Science at the OpenGovChicago Meetup. Here is a look at some of our agenda:
We will have representatives from The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, Sweet Water Foundation, Freedom Games, and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County to talk about their efforts to provide teens the ability to collect, manage, analyze, visualize, and share geo-referenced data through open-source mapping and data-sharing software.
The aim of this meetup is to share work to date and to connect with the larger open data/ open technology community. This is an ambitious project focused on open source tools for mapping and data collection. The OpenGov movement has much to share on these fronts, and we hope for great cross-pollination on this night!
