OpenEcoMaps :: about OpenEcoMaps provides free eco-living maps and data from OpenStreetMap. But why? There are lots of community groups, councils and companies out there mapping allotments, renewable energy generators, cycle routes and more. Silos and duplication - by putting their work into different places, different maps, we're storing all of our information in disconnected silos, duplicating effort and not benefiting from each other's work. OpenEcoMaps encourages people to share all their data in the same place - OpenStreetMap - and makes it easier for you to make use of the results. You can watch a presentation I gave to Crystal Palace Transition Town to find out more about the motivation behind the project, and why you might want to use it. How does it work? OpenEcoMaps takes open data from OpenStreetMap, a community that is mapping the whole world and providing all of the information as open data. You can read the documentation on the OpenStreetMap wiki page, including the list of tags we use..

Mother Pelican ~ A Journal of Solidarity and Sustainability Introduction Since its inception as “a fusion of biological and social sciences in the early twentieth century,” (Dyball, 2010, p. 273) human ecology has been variously described as (a) multidisciplinary—in that it draws upon the insights of different disciplines—; (b) interdisciplinary—in that it integrates the insights of other disciplines into a whole greater than the sum of its parts—; and (c) transdisciplinary—beyond all disciplines and therefore adisciplinary, hence not really a discipline at all. But what does it mean to characterize human ecology in these successively more radical terms? They are, I believe, inchoate attempts to articulate the following thesis: Human ecology must be done, in certain phases of its practice, as philosophy and indeed is crucially reliant on strictly philosophical reflection. Inevitably, then, much of this paper will work in the language of philosophy, with which many readers of Human Ecology Review will not be familiar. Conclusion References
