Mapping forums

Postby nashr » Wed May 07, 2003 5:01 am

I wondered what anyone thought about setting up a forum just to discuss mapping applications and techniques. I have seen the two most common apps (MapPoint, and S&T). There are MANY open source mapping apps, and I've wondered how many people have played with them, and what they find useful and interesting. I've also seen mention of some 3D mapping which I also find interesting from a physical security perspective. Any thoughts on this one? Is there enough interest? Should there be a poll to help guage interest?

I also have a TON of mapping URLs if anyone is interested.

I think that a mapping forum would be very useful, we could use it for discussing analysis of data. I am biased though , since that's what I do.

Data analysis is a great point. This would also be very useful to security geeks like me.

You may want to make another post quickly to get past that "666" mark! :D

I agree with the addition of this forum. I am fairly certain that there would be a good deal of traffic in it.

Surely there has been talk of maps.netstumbler.com and how it is being worked to make more personalized versions...

Well, there appears to be interest. Can one of the admins set up a forum for us? Or do you not feel there is sufficient interest?

last I heard it was in the works... though i think it is going to be more than just a forum... but like a profile where you can store your map data and do stuff with it against larger map data... and that will take a some type to configure and test before giving it out to the public... i would imagine. :)
