Saving Gaia with jQuery Mobile and GeoDjango

by Calvin Cheng for EuroPython 2011

We had the privilege of working on a mobile web application for ETH Zurich, funded by ETH North-South Centre, using Django/Postgis, jQuery mobile and Openlayers technology.

In this talk, I would like to share what we have learnt technically and the experiences and fun we had with polygon creation on a map and saving polygon vertices and related data into our spatial database via geodjango.

This mobile web app is developed based on research by Dr Koh of ETH Zurich, specializing on Matrix-calibrated and edge-corrected species-area models that allow users to evaluate the biodiversity consequence and trade-offs of land-use decisions. The development and description of these models were published in Conserv. Biol. 24, 994 and J. Appl. Ecol. 47, 1063.
