Last week I gave a ‘tech talk’ talk on GeoServer at Google, which was a fun experience. It’s for employees of Google, but they make the talk available to all on Google Video: GeoServer and Architectures of Participation for Geospatial Information. If you like it give a nice rating on the page. It touches on The Open Planning Project (my employer), how we leveraged standards to implement KML output in GeoServer to talk to Google Earth, and goes a bit in to architectures of participation for geodata, which I’m in the midst of writing about in this blog.
I also said I’d post some links in my blog. Many of them are already on the sidebar, and are also now referenced in the slides. But for completeness sake:
