week 1,836: back at shiny

Last week I announced my departure and many friends said nice, encouraging things on Twitter and here. Thank you. I’m sort of leaping into the abyss here, and it makes a huge difference to know I’m not just twisting in the wind.

Chicago and Denver were both cold and fun. I attended Chris Helm, Steve Citron-Pousty and Brian Timoney’s event JS.Geo. Peter Batty has a complete writeup, which doesn’t quite do justice to the absolute ubiquity of D3 at the conference. It was a good opportunity for me to finally/again get my head straight with D3 data joins with Seth and Aaron Ogle. I remain convinced that as D3’s primary feature, this is sadly under-documented. In Denver, my mustache repeatedly iced over. In Chicago, less so but it was still pretty cold.

I’m back now, and picking up a few projects.

Green Means Go is due for some thinking about individual counties. I’d like to create a single, printable view for each of 3000+ counties with some information about OSM coverage attached.

I’m starting to look at tiled data, D3 and WebGL together for the Nokia WebGL Maps. I’m super excited about the possibilities of shaders here, and need to get my head around tile-like loading of linear ArrayBuffers.

The Metro Extracts are overdue for an update, and I’d like to start doing these more regularly using OSM-US Foundation hardware. Some recent interest in the project suggests that I’ve been paying too little attention to it.

Some small potential consulting gigs, and general future planning.
