GIS Data Set and Mapping Researcher
Most recently CalTekNet is working with 3 different GIS instructors to develop projects that are listed on http://wecanf.net/elearn
We are a Los Angeles-based organization that is looking for several volunteer employees
to help us with using both OSGeo and ArcGIS to develop California-based Digital Divide-related map layers and how-to-media to be incorporated into curriculum and information websites. These resources will be used for outreach and as training materials targeting former California-based Community Technology Centers Network Affiliates (CTCNet circa 2012).

This effort is an attempt to introduce GIS to mostly non-profit agencies that have traditionally worked in the digital divide arena where together, we were members of CTCNet, a national 501(c)3 non-profit membership association. The CTCNet was incubated for 5 years, starting in 1997 by NSF. It no longer exists, today but we are interested in using GIS analytics to document and visually present the California Digital Divide demographical changes from 2010 to 2025 and beyond. This project will be an invitation to engage agencies that may have a good reason to collaborate again on this and other projects.
Our initial map is divided by counties and shows that the majority of the agencies are located in LA County with the greater San Francisco county Bay Area having the 2nd largest number of agencies. We have explored and have created several may layers. We have started the process of creating story maps as well. We are pressed with managing the utilization of a finite number of ESRI credits. The layers also need to be exported as shapefiles and CSV files so they can also be used in various Open Source GIS tools found in http://live.osgeo.org .
We expect to identify, aggregate, make available mapped Geospatial datasets, grouped by urban and rural county geographic service regions which will be used to inform citizen science localized research engagement that entails, verifying, describing, and classifying information relating to community issues
We need to identify, import, and export various datasets into and from http://ctn.ushahidi.io using http://openstreetmaps.org (OSM) OSM is embedded in both http://turnkeylinux.org/sahana-eden and http://turnkeylinux.org/ushahidi We plan to add data to maps according to: http://eden.sahanafoundation.org/wiki/DeveloperGuidelines/GIS
Please register, yourself on http://caltek.net We are particularly interested in the data resources of any one or more of the https://data.lacounty.gov/ for the greater Los Angeles area along with the https://data.lacity.org/ for the city.
The Nov 12th MapTimeLA used: https://github.com/maptimeLA/project-sandbox/archive/master.zip mostly using leaflet and QGIS which are both included in the http://live.osgeo.org a GIS desktop distro DVD which is an open-source software platform for learning and training resource and for administering workshop sessions and other open-source software resources.
