GUADEC 2014 Map

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

Want a custom map for GUADEC 2014?

Here’s a map I made that shows the venue, the suggested hotels, transit ports (airport/train station), vegetarian & veggie-friendly restaurants, and a few sights that look interesting.

I made this with Google Map Engine, exported to KML, and also changed to GeoJSON and GPX.

If you want an offline map on an Android phone, I suggest opening up the KML file with Maps.Me (proprietary OpenStreeMap-based app, but nice) or the GPX on OSMand (open source and powerful, but really clunky).

You can also use the Google Maps Engine version with Google Maps Engine on your Android phone, but it doesn’t really support offline mode all so well, so it’s frustratingly unreliable at best. (But it does have pretty icons!)

See you at GUADEC!

no GUADEC for me…

I was intending on going to this year’s GUADEC in Istanbul, Turkey… but, unfortunately, I’ve been having an amazingly horrid apartment experience.  I call it “the flat fiasco”.
