April 29 (and bits of April 30, depending on where you live) kicks off the first How To Do Map Stuff live-stream map demo jam fest. Organized by Daniel Huffman, it is a way for we map nerds to connect with each other in this strange time of social distancing. But we can be as close, and as forthcoming with our map hacks, as we want via streaming pixels!
I’ll be walking through the process of building up a somewhat ambient occlusion-like hillshade with a couple hacks here and there. This will be my first ever live stream so we’ll see how that all goes. Overall it will be a lot of fun and I’m really looking forward to seeing the other demos. What a day.
Here’s the link to my demo, which will take place at 5:00 pm US Eastern time, April 29. I think you can watch it right here if you like.
The live stream will be recorded so you can watch it here any time thereafter.
Before mine (and, technically, during mine) is Ken Field’s demo; don’t miss (the first half of) that. After my demo, jump over to Kate Leroux’s demo for making 3D printed terrain maps. The map-fun rolls on.
Ok, I’m done! It worked! Live-Stream worked! Whew. How fun, though. Thanks for tuning in if you did. If not, the video above is a recording of the demo. about 30 minutes. Here is a map of the results…
