Sheep Droppings: 6/25-7/1

Last week we announced the beginnings of a new effort to round-up and re-publish news from around the internet geography and geoweb research communities here on the blog in a thing we've decided to call Sheep Droppings. While last week was full of news, this week has shown us that perhaps a weekly edition isn't always going to be the best, so be prepared for a more intermittent (bi-weekly) schedule in the future.

Our first piece of news is to pass along the CFP for the First ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Crowdsourced and Volunteered Geographic Information, being held in California later this year. Deadline for submission of abstracts is late July, with papers due shortly after in August.

Second, friend-of-the-sheep Joe Eckert has taken the lead on an effort to assemble a bibliography of geoweb research using Zotero, as announced on the geoweb-r list. If you're interested in contributing your list of references to the geoweb research community, contact Joe so that you can be added to the group.

Finally, in intra-Floatingsheep news, the DOLLY Project (aka "the Sheepinator") is finally coming together, and is getting close to collecting enough data to start publishing some new maps here on the blog.

Unless the first week of July turns out to be a big one for the geoweb community, expect to see us back in a couple of weeks. And, as always (and by that, we mean the last two weeks), if you have news you'd like to see on Sheep Droppings, please let us know!
