Sorry for the bit of silence from the Blog…Been rather busy.
GISPro – I’ve lucked up this year and am actually making two conferences. FOSS4GNA and GISPro2013 . GISPro is a pretty good conference. If you haven’t been make a point to go – I call it the more human backbone to GIS. It’s the people that make it fun – it’s the people that make this one fun. There are quite a few noteworthy folk that will be there. There will be food and drink and stories.
I will be teaching a new workshop – Introduction to OpenStreetMap. I and Carol Kraemer wrote it a few months back (we’re still adjusting it). We tried to keep this relevant to all of us who deal with Geographic Information Systems from day to day – but have 0 clue on how or why OpenStreetMap works. We’ll cover quite a bit (and it’s only 8 hours so hold onto your seat).
- Rendering the Map
- Download Data
- Benefits of OSM
We’re even going to attempt to go out and map something during Chapter 8…or like every last chapter of every class I’ve taught leave early (and since it’s GISPro find a bar and have a drink).
So if you’re at GISpro – Track us down – come over and say Hi. Come listen to boring stories of North River Geographic Systems, Inc and the cool stuff that we have done and will do.
