This is a technical blog post about map tiles, caching, third-party services, so-called “serverless” computing and sustainability. It’s also about improvements to open-source software for managing all of that stuff.

All of these many SFOs are important because they help to contextualize things (like the photo of Rotunda A) in the moment but also to demonstrate how that context has changed over the years.

Today, we are happy to announce the first release of historical building footprints and interior spaces, including galleries and public art, at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) as an openly licensed dataset. The data spans the years 1954 through 2018 and is published under the Linux Foundation’s Community Data License Agreement - Permissive 1.0 (CDLA).

Maybe these maps are simply a fail-safe and only used when nothing else works. Their value then comes from giving us the confidence to try a more sophisticated approach while still having a way to get home safely, so to speak.

We do everything ourselves at the museum, from curatorial to registration to exhibition design and installation and now digital. The goal of this weblog is to be a place where everyone at the museum can share their work and the motivations that guide that work, and inform what you see at the airport. Some of it will be tangible and immediate, some of it may be shop-talk, and some of it may be speculative and aspirational. We hope that all of it will be interesting and give you a reason to discover a little more of the museum the next time you’re at the airport or visiting us online. Here are the most recent posts from our blog!
