Building heights: can the iPad Pro's LiDAR suit the job? Point and get readings, and then... ta-da! No need to wait for open data LOL

(Is this a silly question?)

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

fediscience.org/invite/j6X8z7q

Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

RT @Enock4seth: We are not a map, we are a database that you can use to create a map! YES!

@openbuildingmap I love the Fediverse call out! Thanks. 🙂👍

Have you seen what we're doing in Ireland with our project to (manually) map all the buildings in Ireland?

The global #OpenStreetMap conference "State of the Map" (@sotm ) is happening this weekend. Instead of meeting in Cape Town, we do it online. The good part: No registration needed, just chime in! 2020.stateofthemap.org/program

@openbuildingmap Your additional levels are interesting.
To add partly transparent 2D tiles is a clever and simple idea.
To make data analysis is an even more basic idea.
It could be used by other renderers to.
I would like to see it as an plugin in a 2D client-side vector renderer.

All new development is happening here salsa.debian.org/openbuildingm Join us in this great space if you want to collaborate with us!
