The idea was to present practical tips on managing “geospatial data” which is a general way to say data like tracks (where the searchers have been), maps (which help us plan a search) and how best to find, use and store data while searching. I was a little worried that the presentation was too basic, but from some of the comments and discussion during the presentation I could tell that while most of the audience knew parts of what I was presenting there was some new stuff in there for everyone.
The presentation contained content from this blog (surprise!). If you’re interested, it was made up of the following blog posts
- SAR and Crowdsourced Maps
- On Coordinates and On Coordinates Part 2
- Your GPS is lying to you
- Measuring GPS accuracy
- Measuring Smartphone GPS Accuracy
