OSGeo Mashup

Thoughts on how to set up a membership activity and user location OSGeo mashup.

  • a script subscribes to the OSGeo Wiki "Recent Changes" RSS
  • extract editor's Wiki user name and client IP from RSS feed
  • look up that IP's latitude and longitude
  • MediaWiki user name page includes a template with formatted home location in latitude and longitude (KML, GeoRSS, GML, any)
  • bot writes back location and User Name to PostgreSQL PostGIS database
  • MapServer connects to that PostGIS FeatureTable and display map with point and text as OGC WMS
  • GeoServer connects to that same PostGIS FeatureTable and returns GML via OGC WFS-T interface
  • Mapbender deploys OpenLayers to overlay OSM map with OSGeo Member map
  • and so on

Proposal for a map of OSGeo software users

Taking the Category:OSGeo Member map as a basis, I suggest to:

  • build up a map with all current users (from OSGeo LDAP, plus possibly other sources, if projects keep their own)
  • make an option "Show only {GRASS|QGIS|Mapserver|etc.} users"
  • put it on the main page
