Scicloj Meeting #14 video: Clojure in Geography with Will Cohen

Here is the video from yesterday’s meeting:

We had a talk from our friend Will Cohen, an urban planner from Boston.
Will is the maintainer of the Geo library and the author of Ovid and Aurelius.

The talk began with a general introduction to GIS and geospatial analysis, mainly in the context of urban planning. Then, Will went through the history, the state of the art, and the vision for the future of GIS in Java, Clojure, and Clojurescript. In the discussion, several members shared their problems and practices. We also discussed the possible next steps in building the Clojure GIS stack, and possible ways to collaborate.
