San Francisco Bay Area
Just starting a page for those in the local area to meet.
- This is a first cut at a concept for a San Francisco Bay Area (SFBA) local chapter of OSGeo.
- The primary mission of the SFBA chapter would be to develop the local geospatial community through in-person events.
- Introduce the many members of the SFBA geospatial community to each other. We don't talk enough!
- Provide a forum for sharing advice and experiences using different open-source geospatial tools.
- Encourage interop testing and real collaborative development through events a la SHDH or BarCamp.
- Provide a local anchor for the growing state-wide California chapter.
Proposed Chapter Goals For 2008
- Host at least quarterly gatherings for the local community, emphasizing sharing advice, asking questions, and forging new collaborations.
- Support and shape the formation fo the California state-wide chapter.
