Djangocon: open data on the sea shore - Richard MochΒΆ

Tags: djangocon

(One of the summaries of a talk at the 2014 djangocon.eu).

Richard Moch shows us open sea map, open street map for the sea! Light houses, shipping langes, etc.

They’re also trying to build up a sea depth map consisting of open data. See http://depth.openseamap.org/ .

There’s more: http://openweathermap.org/ . Yes, open weather data for current weather and forecasts. There is an open meteo foundation that tries to get it off the ground.

Based on this open weather data, you can build apps, for instance http://meteo-parapente.com for showing good locations for doing paragliding.

Open weather data? Then you need to measure it. They are working on an open source autonomous weather station.
