Disaster telecon

Attendance erin, karen, dave jones, holly (stormcenter), maggi glascoe, ken, bob chen. NOTES

Update on Testbed:

  • Holly Shore is taking lead at stormcenter to get geocollaborate instances launched.
  • Had two recent presentations with Maggi and Ken on how to use geocollaborate.
  • New javascript version is mobile friendly.
  • Need to solve legends + metadata question in geocollaborate.
  • Developing tutorials
  • Waiting on new data sets.

Demo Discussion:

  • Possible demo for our group during the next telecon.
  • Maggi feedback
  • Had demo with Holly and the team and displayed data.
  • For next telecon do we still want to demo Hazard Mapper?
  • Answer: If it's ready, yes.
  • Tentatively we are looking at having the next telecon be a demo-focused telecon.

Winter Meeting Discussion:

  • There was a recent NASA disasters meeting that David Green put together.
  • They are trying to organize NASA centers into more organized response centers with POCs for different societal needs.

Other Notes:

  • How do we display uncertainties in data?
  • Do we know anyone who has a unique perspective on how to graphically display information for increased decision-maker understanding?
  • How can a subject matter expert explain novel data remotely to a decision-maker?
  • Can we get someone who knows about this to speak at the winter meeting?
