State of the Map Scotland 2011
Scottish OpenStreetMap 'unconference'
THIS EVENT HAS ENDED!
Held on Fri-Sat August 26/27 2011 10-4pm
Thanks to all those who joined the Scottish OpenStreetMap community to talk, workshop and hack for this two day event. We were kindly hosted by the Electron Club at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow. This was an 'unconference' event, where all delegates made suggestions for presentations or workshops and gave lightening talks throughout the day(s).
We attracted mappers, hackers, artists, cyclists, cartographers and academic organisations interested in the OpenStreetMap project. Approximately 40 people attended over two days.
The facilities included the Electron Club room with 14 spaces for laptops and a 70 seat cinema for presentations. There are also two open bar/cafe areas within the building and free wifi throughout..

The overarching purpose of GECO is to foster a community(ies) of users of geospatial resources (data, services, support). Geospatial, taken in its broadest sense underpins a vast array of academic endeavour - geography represents a fundamental organising axis for information
DevCSI is about helping software developers realise their full potential, by creating the conditions for them to be able to learn, network effectively, share ideas, collaborate and innovate creating a ‘community’ of developers in the learning provider sector which is greater than the sum of its parts. The developer benefits. The sector benefits.
