Since 2009, we have been developing and testing Exploration Ground Data Systems (xGDS). xGDS is a software suite, built on open-source web technologies, for supporting NASA terrestrial field science analog missions. We will describe our recent work supporting underwater mapping and dive operations at the Pavilion Lake Research Project (PLRP - www.pavilionlake.com).

In 2005, Trimet (Portland, OR Transit System) and Google set off to create a computer readable format of Portland's multimodal transit system. Since then the GTFS documentation has been released to the public and hundreds of agencies all over the world have adopted this open data standard. While the intent of this data feed was originally to just be used in Google Maps other search engines, developers, planners, and GIS professionals have begun to use this data that many host on the open web.
This presentation is about my first adventure in using FOSS4G web mapping technology to visualize and disseminate data. The technologies used include leaflet, mapbox, openstreetmap, bootstrap, and c3.js(charting wrapper for d3.js).
Australia’s NationalMap, nationalmap.gov.au, is an engaging, open-source web site enabling the public to discover and explore Australian government spatial data at the federal, state, and local levels. An interesting feature is that NationalMap does not host any data itself. Instead, it provides a federated interface to the diverse servers already operated by the the various government agencies, running Geoserver, THREDDS Data Server, ArcGIS Server, CKAN, Socrata, and many more.
