'''Serve Data, Not Services - Howard Butler - Hobu, Inc'''
 +
 +
Gone are the days of buying a 2U server and sticking it in a rack in a closet next to an air conditioner. What was once organizational excess compute capacity to provide on-demand network services is now metered and measured in the cloud by the same administration that inventories the office supply cabinet. Excessive middleware is decidedly out of fashion, and concepts like Cloud Native Geospatial, with its focus on cloud optimized formats and JSON metadata to drive desktop and cloud applications alike are taking hold. Howard Butler, president of Hobu, Inc. and leader of the PDAL software project, will talk about formats, organization, federation, archive, and frustration in the process of getting data to and from the cloud.
 +
 +
Howard Butler is the founder and president of Hobu, Inc., an open source software consultancy located in Iowa City, Iowa that focuses on point cloud data management solutions. He is an active participant in the ASPRS LAS Committee, a Project Steering Committee member of both the PROJ and GDAL open source software projects, a contributing author to the GeoJSON specification, creator of the Cloud Optimized Point Cloud format, and a past member of the OSGeo Board of Directors. With his firm, Howard leads the development of the PDAL and Entwine open source point cloud processing and organization software libraries.

'''Mergin Maps for Archaeology, a QGIS workflow for field recording at the Vaughn Home Excavations, Vanderbilt University. - Giles Spence Morrow and Steven Wernke'''
 +
 +
Methods of data collection in archaeological fieldwork settings vary as widely as the contexts themselves. Quite apart from core research questions,  logistical and environmental conditions often guide how data is collected from archaeological contexts. The last decade of research has seen increasing interest in moving beyond analog documentation through personal notebooks and standardized paper forms to digital native data collection via iPads. With the advent of mobile GIS applications, on-site spatial documentation is now becoming a viable option in the field, allowing for real time data collection and collaboration across multiple members of an excavation project. The current paper outlines our ongoing use of the MerginMaps / Input App during the archaeological excavations at the Vaughn Home, one of the original faculty houses on Vanderbilt University’s campus. We will present our database structure and current workflow that integrates the MerginMaps plugin for QGIS to incorporate photogrammetric orthomosaics and LiDAR-based models created in the field. We highlight both the challenges faced and successes realized in our use of MerginMaps in our archaeological application of the software, with hopes of prompting discussion on future directions for development in relation to the integration of three-dimensional spatial data in the form of GLB models.
