Maptember is continuing in style this week with both the AGI Annual Conference – AGI GeoCommunity ’13: Open for Business and FOSS4G taking place in Nottingham.
It’s the 7th year of the AGI GeoCommunity conference and this year’s theme is ‘Open for Business’ which perfectly reflects our initiatives for OS OpenData and OS OpenSpace – as well as our future product innovations through the OS Insight programme. If you’re at the event, pop by our stand or come along to one of our presentations. We’ll be talking about linked data and open source as well as our Director General and CEO, Vanessa Lawrence, presenting at the opening plenary.
If you can’t make it to our stand, do check your conference pack for our OS Insider newsletter to bring you up to date on all of our new products and services this year. If you haven’t made it to the conference, check it out here instead.
We’re also thrilled to be at the first ever UK Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) conference. FOSS4G is the annual conference for the Open Source Geospatial (OSGeo) Foundation which is the global, non-profit organisation created to support collaborative development of open source geospatial software, and promote its widespread use.
The event is expected to draw delegates from across the world, attracted by the huge volume of papers (over 200 spread across 9 streams – 5 from us), workshops (5 streams over 4 days – with our own Paul Naylor presenting on Cartographic Design), as well as two days of GeoHack (taking place in the ‘geotent’), unconference sessions, CodeSprints, Bird of a Feather meetings and a wide range of social activities.
We hope to see you there!
