2:45pm to 3:15pm
In this session Steve will discuss his last year working as lead developer on an ambitious successor project to the popular Field Papers platform called CaerusGeo, currently being tested in Syria, Afghanistan, and Libya.
CaerusGeo is different than the typical web mapping platform in that an substantial amount of conceptualization and testing was undertaken to ensure its viability in “frontier” environments where analog mediums such as paper and verbal communication solely rule data collection. This talk will focus on the extensive amount of work needed to create an system that gelled with the environment’s workflow, as opposed to replacing it outright, and also the trials and tribulations experienced in integrating with Mapfish Print, an extremely powerful but lightly documented component for producing excellent wallmap and atlas PDFS.
