Open Data Kit Etherpad Dominique Cardon : Pourquoi l’internet n’a-t-il pas changé la politique On ne présente plus Dominique Cardon, sociologue au laboratoire des usages SENSE d’Orange Labs. Il publie au Seuil, dans la collection « la République des Idées », un petit livre synthétique, stimulant, lucide et informé sur La Démocratie internet. Un ouvrage où il tente de nous expliquer pourquoi le grand soir électronique n’a pas eu lieu. InternetActu.net : Depuis l’origine de l’internet, on a beaucoup fantasmé sur la démocratie électronique et son avènement. Dominique Cardon : Elle vient tout droit de son histoire. L’appropriation personnelle, le bidouillage, le do-it-yourself a défini un cadre nouveau pour investir les technologies qui étaient si mal aimées à l’époque en raison de leur connivence avec les pouvoirs militaire et marchand.

Ushahidi - Support for Emergencies Citizen election reporting in Kenya was a breakthrough in online-offline collaboration The Kenyan elections were more than a month ago, but a debate continues in the crisis mapping community about whether the various technologies deployed to track... Did the Kenyan Elections Really Need 3 Maps, 7 Phone Numbers, and Several Web Forms? We all knew it. We saw this coming in Haiti and talked about it in Egypt, when 5 Ushahidi maps popped out the day before the elections. 3 Reasons Why Ushahidi Should Not Help Users Achieve Social Impact Lots of people are talking about the shortcomings of Ushahidi (see Crowdglobe and Dead Ushahidi). CrowdGlobe: The Dead Ushahidi reality behind 12,795 Ushahidi Crowdmaps CrowdGlobe has analyzed both Ushahidi and Crowdmap data as well as its user base. Dead Ushahidi: A Stark Reminder for Sustainability Planning in ICT4D By now, you’ve heard of Ushahidi, the ICT4D darling for crowdsourcing map data. Why technology is only 10 percent of ICT solution success

[Atelier] Comment parler des données ouvertes à des non-développeurs Comment parler des données ouvertes à un public de non-développeurs ? Comment fournir les bases nécessaires pour mieux en saisir les contours, les enjeux et les limites ? Dans le cadre du séminaire Cultures numériques de Sciences Po Rennes, j’ai animé un atelier pratique qui visait à répondre, par l’exemple des données de mobilité, à ces questions. Une thématique : la mobilité urbaine Le marquage au sol J’ai choisi d’orienter cet atelier sur la thématique de la mobilité urbaine. Le tableau des départs La séance réunit une vingtaine d’étudiants de Sciences Po Rennes, de l’Université Rennes 2 et de l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Les étudiants ont recensé plus d’une vingtaine de modes de transports différents, du métro au vélo individuel en passant par l’auto-partage ou le taxi-vélo. L’information, l’autre carburant de la mobilité Une information voyageurs Les données : de quoi parle-t-on ? La chasse aux données : la mise en pratique Dans le kit : une photo du quartier Dans la gare Epilogue J'aime :

Proximité et participation Opti'System® - Bin Collection Optimisation The Opti'System® is an innovative product, which measures the filling level of an existing drop-off bank or underground container, and informs the collection company and / or local authority of the needs of a collection, remotely. Each bank or container has its own SIM card and calling number, like a mobile phone. The measure message is sent via SMS. The operator can choose a target in cm, above which the bank or container needs to be collected. This can be changed at any time to allow for fluctuations in waste (for example in tourist areas). Each bank or container is configurated with its GPS coordinates and calling number, and registered with its corresponding address and the desired maximum filling level. The containers that are empty or filling level has not yet been reached appear in green, and those which need to be emptied show in red. The software produces three types of reports: banks / containers to be emptied cleared banks / containers disorders (low battery or disfunctioning)

GIS Education Community Blog : Mapping Geotagged Pictures with ArcGIS Explorer “Geotagging” is the process of adding location information to digital media. Most often, geotagging refers to adding latitude/longitude to digital picutres. Some people find knowing “where” a picture was taken, as valable as knowing “when” it was taken. For this reason, I’ve begun adding lat/long to some of my pictures, such as a recent trip I took to South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, where I was on safari. As the ArcGIS Explorer team blogged, adding geotagged pictures to ArcGIS Explorer is really easy! - Tom Baker, ESRI Education Manager Tom Baker is an Esri Education Manager, specializing in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education, teacher education, and educational research.
