Description Cross posted Event to FARMHACK.NET

Friday- Sunday May 15-17th This weekend meetup will be to coordinate open source agricultural and remote sensing systems with a focus on integration of FarmOS and the Open Pipe Kit with air, water and soil sensor networks and coordination of overlapping efforts between university, public labs, farm hack and other organizations. This year’s theme is “experiencing the sensed landscape” which will guide our conversations about how we can “experience” environmental data beyond the smartphone and computer screen. There is a cap on the group size so please please RSVP to if you are interested in attending. This event will build on and past ifarms to accommodate the growing aspects of the project and the diverse communities and technology coming together. Questions and next steps review the links on the event wiki for, Commotion Wireless, Open Water quality primer iFarm, photosynq.

Hi Dorn! I am planning to join up either late friday or early Saturday, and unfortunately have to head out late Saturday to go to new Orleans! Is chris Fastie planning on attending?

Chris Fastie would not miss iFarm even for a trip to NOLA (unless unlimited Bywater Bombers were promised). Jeff do you still have the poster about NDVI cover crop trials at the first iFarm (the first flight of the Public Lab dual-camera IR rig with MK111 timer)? IFarm 2015 could see the first flight of the pan/tilt Saturn V rig with SkySweep controller. Too bad you have to leave early.

I'll poke around for the poster, but I don't think I do have it anymore. Glad to hear you'll be there!

Agreed, it's too bad -- this is a crazy busy couple months for me, and I'm sorry to be missing a portion of my favorite event of the year!
