During September there is a veritable feast of map related events to attend - so many they've re-named the month - MAPTEMBER
Astun is sponsoring a number of these events.
The key MAPTEMBER events are:
- SOtM (State of The Map) Open Street Map - Birmingham 6th-8th September 2013
- AGI GEOCOMMUNITY - Nottingham 16th to 18th September
- FOSS4G 2013 - Nottingham 7th to 21st September
There are lots of other events too, including the innaugural QGIS User Group meeting. If you are passionate about what you do and that includes mapping, you are sure to find something of interest on the MAPTEMBER website
QGIS MAPTEMBER events
We are big fans of QGIS as an Open Source alternative to professional desktop GIS applications such as MapInfo and ArcGIS. QGIS is beginning to take off in the UK and we together with Ordnance Survey are sponsoring the nascent QGIS User Group whose innaugural meeting is taking place on 27th September in Maidenhead.
Also the 10th QGIS Developer Meeting is taking place in Brighton between 12th-16th September. Many of those attending are hot footing it to Nottingham for the FOSS4G Conference straight after.
