geoOttaWOW — Successfully Connecting to a New World

The City of Ottawa offers a variety of datasets through Open Data on Ottawa.ca. This data is used for a variety of reasons by both individuals and organizations. Early in 2015, GIS resources at the City of Ottawa decided to experiment with "new tools" in FME. By using data from the Open Data catalogue, we have transformed Ottawa into a Minecraft world. The adults of Ottawa have our mapping application called geoOttawa, and now the youth have their Minecraft world called geoOttaWOW. What a great way to connect with the young gamers of Ottawa! This presentation will describe the path taken to build geoOttaWOW, connecting with a new generation of Ottawa in a whole new way.
