Mapping the interface between vehicle traffic and pedestrians

  LISTEN HERE OR WHEREVER YOU GET YOUR PODCASTS

This is an interview with Jacob Baskin 

The curbside might not seem like the most obvious focus point in terms of mapping the urban environment but when you start to think of the curb as a highly regulated space and when you consider the number of arrivals and departures that that place on the curb in crowded urban cities you might just change your mind. The curbside is actually an interface between vehicle traffic and pedestrians that has to enable a wide variety of use cases. Coord is helping organizations map the curbside, the assets on the curb and the locations of regulated spaces. 

Most cities simply don't have detailed maps of the features that exist on or near the curb and regulation is almost always done using signs. This can lead to confusion about the actual permitted use cases and for reasons stated in the interview signs are not always as machine-readable as you might think. So not only are signs not always the best answer when it comes to communicating the laws around parking in a certain area to humans, they are also not the best way of helping autonomous vehicles understand the regulations around different curbside areas.

Serving dynamic vector tiles might not be as difficult as you think. Paul Ramsey from Crunchy Data starts off by walking us through the early days of PostGIS, explaining what a vector tile is and the advantages over image tiles before explaining how you can easily and safely serve your own data as vector tiles straight from a PostgreSQL database.
