Using GeoGit with OpenStreetMap: Distributed Versioned Spatial Data Editing

A session at State of the Map US 2013

Sunday 9th June, 2013

3:45pm to 4:15pm (PST)

GeoGit is a new open source software project that is designed to allow for multiple individuals to contribute to geospatial feature data while providing versioning, provenance, and support for collaborative workflows. This session will explore interoperability between GeoGit repositories and OSM.

GeoGit is designed to allow for multiple individuals to contribute to geospatial feature data while providing distributed and decentralized versioning. With this capability we can move into a paradigm that allows for distributed collaboration on geographic data development and management while synchronizing with larger centralized repositories such as OpenStreetMap. GeoGit provides the ability to maintain a history of the changes to geospatial vector data, track who provided the changes, store comments on the reasons for the changes similar to the OSM API, and overall makes it easy for a user or organization to establish and maintain their own node. GeoGit provides the ability to track and maintain the provenance of the data in a distributed and sometimes connected environment. By combining GeoGit with user-focused applications and portals, this can be done in such a way that the provenance of the data is maintained throughout the process and interoperability with repositories such as OSM is simple and painless.
