UnConference Planning

GIS in Action Unconference – Tentatively this will be Monday the 29th of April, 2013. We'll plan it for a late start so travelers from CUGOS can join us. We'll roll that into the first day of the conference with a full day open source track to make the Monday-Tuesday an open source back to back option.

Presentation by Alex Mandel (UC Davis)

  • Tour of OSGeoLive DVD – great for offline work, teaching, etc. All the projects have descriptions & tutorials, and sample data.


  • QGIS development – lots of cool things you can do with QGIS. Everyone should check out Aaron's QGIS tutorial from foss4g 2011


  • GeoNode – data sharing environment (integrates geoserver w/ geonetwork). Version 1.0 is stable, 1.1 is not, 1.2 will have some cool stuff that comes from GeoServer 2.2


  • EoXServer – like GeoNode but for MapServer


Future meeting schedule for 2012 (every third Wednesday)

  • November 21st - We'll be at FlightStats (522 SW 5th Ave, Suite 200, Portland, OR 97204)
