  • PDF what needs to be done?
    • data entry sheet/page
    • maps page - overview map, then embedded viewer instead of thumbnail
    • create records for all maps
  • Jeff: focus on final poster, layout, and actual printing done
  • add gdal commands info to wiki page, to document our gdal processes:
  • GDAL: can we make a GeoTiff without using gdalwarp? add to gdal_translate, or just ping Mike Migurski?
  • lots of obliques stitches, what to do with them?
    • obliques displayed in Flickr, but linked to and displayed in Maps database
    • obliques stored (backed up) in the archive directories for their respective sites

  • online mapping party? learn to stitch?
    • or just a real-world “party” to stitch a map quickly after it’s made. Maybe the same people as collected the images but not necessarily
