FOSS4G cooperates with the German National Library of Science and Technology ([https://www.tib.eu/ TIB]). TIB is one of the world’s largest specialised libraries for science and technology. It is publicly funded and has no commercial interest. TIB provides a scientific open access video portal ([https://av.tib.eu AV-Portal]), where recordings from OSGeo conferences (in English and German) can be stored, long term preserved and made citable using persistent digital object identifers (DOI). TIB provides this services free of charge for OSGeo. If you wish to publish your video in the AV Portal, you have different options to do so:
* TIB AV-Portal provides access to high grade scientific films from the fields of engineering, architecture, chemistry, computer science, mathematics and physics.
+
* FOSS4G and FOSSGIS conferences are published here

This is page is a try to create a central index of all available Video Tutorials and Screencasts about FOSS for GIS.

As creating a central repository is not easy due to licenses, video formats and disk space we are using this page to list all pages hosting interesting videos.

please add you contribute at the bottom of the list respecting the table layout

OSGeo-related videos preserved at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB)

The German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) ‒ Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology is a central specialised library, it is a national infrastructure facility for the provision of scientific information. TIB is actively collecting videos from past, current and upcoming OSGeo conferences and similar events.

All videos preserved by TIB receive a digital object identifier (DOI) to make them directly citable in scientific publications and wikis and blogs. Details on such video quotes

How to do your screencast

please add your suggestions on how you did your screencast. Please try to use and suggest Free Software.

Linux

Mac

Windows

Where to publish your screencast

Actually main free video hosting are using a strong dowsampling that does not allow a good video quality to present screencast.

Then you'll need to find your own web hosting or a free one that can host just the video without resampling.

Hosting Portals

There are specialized hosting services for tutorials:

Suggestions

  • What about distribution the videos with a bittorrent-style distribution? Maybe OSGeo could provide the infrastructure for this?

German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB)

FOSS4G cooperates with the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB). TIB is one of the world’s largest specialised libraries for science and technology. It is publicly funded and has no commercial interest. TIB provides a scientific open access video portal (AV-Portal), where recordings from OSGeo conferences (in English and German) can be stored, long term preserved and made citable using persistent digital object identifers (DOI). TIB provides this services free of charge for OSGeo. If you wish to publish your video in the AV Portal, you have different options to do so:

How does TIB get the videofiles?

1. Single videos via the TIB AV-Portal upload form: If you wish to upload a video, please register in the AV Portal and follow the instructions. The upload form helps you to insert the metadata to describe the video. Registration and upload steps:

a. Register via the respective tab on the AV Portal.

b. Log in by using your customer name and password.

c. Use the tab "Upload" and fill out the upload form.

d. Specify the publisher as „FOSS4G“ and title of series as „FOSS4G +year”

2. Large data transmissions via an FTP server: (to obtain the FTP access data, please contact KNM@tib.eu)

3. Videos from a webserver via wget: You can provide TIB with a file with all wget requests to load the mp4 files to their server.


For example wget_foss4g2016.sh:

wget http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/misc/openstreetmap/FOSS4G-2016/foss4g-2016-1047-provide_applications_with_geoportal_framework_mapbender3-hd.mp4

Astrid can give you a php script to create this file.

Requirements by TIB (if you do not use the upload form)

The video file in mp4 and the metadatafile in xml. The name of the video file and the metadata file must be identical, so that they can be matched automatically. For example:

  • name of the video file: Prof_Mueller_LA_2016.mp4
  • name of the XML-file: Prof_Mueller_LA_2016.xml

How to generate the metadata files

What licence to use

Example 1: For the international community we recommend:

Creative Commons BY 4.0 International

Example 2: If the video is published in Germany and/or addresses the German community we recommend:

Creative Commons BY 3.0 Germany

Contact persons at TIB:

  • Lars Gottschalk (Tel.: +49 511 762-14224)
  • Tolga Karaarslan (Tel.: +49 511 762-14227)
  • KNM@tib.eu

at OSGeo:

  • Some OSGeo members worked together with TIB already (Astrid Emde, Till Adams). You are welcome to ask for information.

For more information see AV-Portal Info.

GIS- and Geo-related Podcasts

Some suggestions from the hivemind (note these are not necessarily open source specific):

  • Directions Magazine http://www.directionsmag.com/ offers regular podcasts. They occasionally have open source related content by Adena Schutzberg (Directions staff) and others.
