UNITAR - UNOSAT 10-12 May 2011, Bergen, Norway. During the 2011 GDACS Stakeholders Meeting, a crowd-sourcing application for geo-tagged photos was released to the disaster management and early responders community. Developed under the EC funded GEO-PICTURES project by AnsuR, in collaboration with UNOSAT, this Android app automatically geo-locates (tags) photos, size them according to bandwidth and send them off to a web-server - all with the touch of one button. In the web-server, photo location is indicated on a map, and the photo can be further assessed, shared with individuals or groups and even uploaded in high resolution if needed. So far, the tool has successfully been used in Haiti, Pakistan and Nigeria, as well as in several exercises. Using any Android phone, simply point the barcode-scanner to the below QR code and the Asign application will install automatically.

OpenLayers 3 Examples Advanced View Positioning example (center.html) This example demonstrates how a map's view can be adjusted so a geometry or coordinate is positioned at a specific pixel location. The map above has top, right, bottom, and left padding applied inside the viewport. The view's fitGeometry method is used to fit a geometry in the view with the same padding. The view's centerOn method is used to position a coordinate (Lausanne) at a specific pixel location (the center of the black box). Curator Curator responsibilities[edit] In smaller organizations, a curator may have sole responsibility for the acquisition and care of objects. The curator will make decisions regarding what objects to take, oversee their potential and documentations, conduct research based on the collection and history that provides proper packaging of art for transportation, and shares that research with the public and community through exhibitions and publications. In very small volunteer-based museums, such as local historical societies, a curator may be the only paid staff member.
