Meeting Notes

Attending: Rafa, Jeffery, Darrell, Mike, Tanya, Neil, Kurt, Eli, Percy (eventually)

Rafa gave a presentation on using geojson.io, which devolved (evolved?) into a discussion of TopoJSON.

FOSS4G updates were given, briefly.

We agreed to do a November meeting, and a December meeting.


  • OpenStreetMap Edit-a-thon hosted by Mele, October 19th at Urban Airship.
  • FOSS4G theme and promotion, on the FOSS4G list I'd like to start a brainstorm about FOSS4G theme (someone suggested 'User focused' - similar to 2009 in Sydney) and promotion of the conference of that theme as well as Portland and Oregon. What makes Portland so Portland? Flipping through a recent copy of Momentum magazine, I noticed Kinn Cascade Flyer bikes (made is Portland), the produce pedaler, and North St bags (also made in Portland). These are just a few things. Making a list of these, we can then tie into them as appropriate in promotional material.
