In June of this year Nottingham University hosted the First Open Source GIS UK Conference.
The aims of the event included hearing presentations from government,
academic, industry and policy makers on open source geospatial
technologies, providing a platform to network and develop ideas for
future collaborative work in open source GIS, developing an
understanding of current developments in open source GIS and enabling a
focus for open source GIS research. One hundred and fifty
delegates represented 17 countries. Co-chair Dr Suchith Anand reports
that webcasts of the program are available for free online and invites the community that could not attend to view them.
