Group: Local Food Systems Computer Modeling, GIS, Data(mining) group

Welcome

This is a meta group to explore, discuss, post blog posts, ideas, and resources about technology applications, best practices, and resources for Computer Simulation, GIS and Datamining of local food systems.

This could be useful, for instance, for people exploring logistics, crunching numbers of all kinds, looking at environmental impacts, modeling or datamining around crop and livestock growth rates and conditions, market explorations, importing open data from public sources and using it, like data from NOAA, US Census, etc

The primary goal here is to pool resources, and knowledge and put the power of datamining, computer simulation, and working with and analyszing data into the hands of more people, by creating and/or disseminating knowledge about ways to use these tools, best practices, etc
