United Kingdom Local Chapter Report for 2009

  • Contact name: Jo Cook
Please use 3rd level headings for your main headings:

Key Accomplishments

  • 2009 was the year in which the UK Local Chapter was officially recognised.
  • Membership of our mailing list has grown to 80 members, and we have our own website at http://www.osgeo.org/uk
  • In 2009 we co-organised OSGIS 2009, the UK's first open source GIS conference, with the Centre for Geospatial Sciences at the University of Nottingham. This was a big success that we hope to repeat in 2010.

Areas for Improvement

  • We need people to organise small-scale get-togethers such as lunch-time talks all over the country to keep the momentum going, so we don't rely too much on one or two people speaking at national conferences.
  • We need advertising and publicity material.

Opportunities to Help

Outlook for 2010
