I just finished my presentation at FOSS4G in Cape Town, Rebuilding a City through Community Participation, Neogeography and GIS. It was part of the Disaster Response session and was a nice way to conclude the group of presentations that talked about disaster preparedness, response, reporting, and the importance of maintaining data across situations. The work in New Orleans is a model of the citizens actively involved in the data collection, analysis, and discussion that affects rebuilding their city.
I think overall it went very well - and lots of interest in the processes and successes and how it can be applied elsewhere.Francine Stock, Alan Gutierrez, and Karen Gadbois who provided much of the material in the presentation.
