Tim has many accomplishments, from Geocodr, the first geocoder based on Flickr photo tags that let you search for “happiness in New York” (map), even before you could download the shapefiles – to his more recent and well known efforts in building MapWarper in use by the New York Public Library for georectifying and sharing out their historic map archives.
In addition, Tim was responsible for the first uploads of the Haitian GIS data from CNIGS almost one year to the day before the earthquake this past January. He stood up a MapWarper specifically for relief efforts as thousands of volunteers around the world rectified and traced historics maps of Haiti from the 1990′s. He has also been an active member of OpenStreetMap, including hosting worldwide mapping parties.
We’re excited to have Tim joining the FortiusOne team – and definitely expect to see some great new geospatial features from him in GeoCommons in the very near future.
Welcome to the Esri DC Development Center blog. We write about features of our work on big data analytics, open platforms, and open data, what is new and exciting in the Esri and community, and general industry thought leadership and discussions of geospatial data visualization and analysis.
Please explore what we're working on and let us know if you have any questions or ideas!
