Hats off to Stanford for hosting Geo4LibCamp2016. This event brought together approximately 40 attendees from institutions across the United States including Miriam Olivares and Eric James from Yale. The focus of activities centered around the web application geoblacklight, the opengeoportal project, Esri software, open source geo-tools and the challenges of using these systems as a GIS platform. Key topics included the 1) development of the data schema as an index and source of linked data, 2) data and metadata workflow, 3) issues of provenance, authorship, enrichment, sharing, and rights, and 4) digital infrastructure. The community is enthusiastic and development is expected to continue at and between the represented institutions.
