When? Where?THATCamp Bay Area 2011 is happening Sat & Sun 22-23 October at Google in Mountain View, CA.
I'm John Ridener, the GIS Specialist and Map Cataloger at the UC Berkeley Earth Sciences and Map Library. I'm interested in all types of geospatial information, whether in paper maps, digitized maps, or GIS data. My academic background is in history, literature, archival theory, and library science. While much of my work experience has been technical in nature (web development, cataloging non-book material), I'm very interested in developing systems that provide useful information in compelling ways.
