OpenGeo in Action at Where 2.0 – Basemap Solutions

Update: O’Reilly has posted the videos from the Ignite talks by Sophia Parafina and Paul Ramsey.

All Points Blog today features a write up of the first day of Where 2.0 2010. In this review, Paul Ramsey’s Open Geostack session is prominently mentioned.

Also in that entry, Adena Schutzberg Joe Francica noted Paul’s contribution in the evening Ignite session:

…Paul Ramsey did have an entertaining way of explaining that mapping errors are compounded as more and more applications are built on top of base maps which they themselves may have been compiled from poor quality data.

The solution: why not just create your own base map instead of relying on those made by others?
