2012 Events


2011 Unconference

The annual Open Source GIS Unconference was coordinated in conjunction with GIS In Action. There was an Open Source GIS Smackdown on Tuesday at 10:30am right after the Keynote. In addition to the Unconference, there was additional presentations on Open Source applications through GIS in Action that were well worth checking out.

Some discussion that Fri/Sat is a better day then Thur because more people can attend that are otherwise at work. Worth discussion before next year.

Two rooms was fine for venue was fine

Refreshments were sufficient. Lets see if we can get GIA to donate leftovers again.

Timing was OK once it started; but start time and planning should be tightened up some. Everyone that was going to be there at 9:00 was!

Where are all the notes that people took - please send to the listserv pdxosgis group or plug in here.

Hackathon-Crisis Map session at backspace on Friday averaged between 6-7 people. Lots of education about OSM and Tools. Would have liked to see more people there - maybe same day as main event - could be a 1/2 day tract on un-conference day. It was good to have something to focus on too.

April 1, 2011 April Fools' Hackathon

The Hackathon is OPEN. We're meeting at Backspace from 11am-2p. Submit your ideaz here.

  • Crisis Camp Japan
  • Documenting and How To's
  • For people who don't want to do Hackathon activities, they could help with mapping the (Japan) crisis area for OpenStreetMap. See also, OSM wiki
  • I've got a fairly complete open source GIS stack built as an openSUSE Linux appliance. It consists of R plus the R "Spatial" task view plus all of its dependencies (Proj4, Grass, GDAL, PostGIS) plus QGIS. But not all of us run openSUSE Linux - yet ;-). I'd like to see this stack ported to Windows and MacOS X. I can do Ubuntu and Fedora ports myself if anyone's interested, and I can help with the Windows port. The scripts are on Github at [1] and [2] if anyone wants to get a head start on this.
