Get involved in GIS Open Source, Open Data and Open Xchange

Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences, Velp, The Netherlands

25-28 June 2012

From Monday, June 25 until Thursday, 28 June 2012 the 3rd international MapWindow Open Source GIS conference will be held at VanHall-Larenstein University of Applied Sciences, Velp, The Netherlands.
This conference is organized by the MapWindow GIS, DotSpatial, SharpMap and communities in partnership with Alumni association VVA-Larenstein.
The purpose of the 4-day conference is to highlight significant aspects of Open Source GIS. The conference will appeal to developers, end-users, students and educators.

The first 3 days will have a strong international character as developers and users from around the world gather to share experiences and demonstrate the latest applications. Each morning will start with a keynote and continue with several presentations. These presentations are about Open Source GIS and Open Data in the broadest sense possible. There will be presentations about MapWinGIS and the SOBEK model, on SharpMap, OpenLayers, Geostatistics, QGIS, OpenStreetMap, etc. There is still room for presentations; if you would like to present, submit an abstract. After lunch (included), workshops will be held.


This will be an excellent opportunity to participate in workshops, present your projects, and be an integral part of the open source GIS community!

Representatives and participants from all open source GIS software projects are invited! While the conference is being sponsored by MapWindow and OSGeo DotNet, we view this as a true FOSS4G event and invite anyone interested in Open Source Geospatial to join us!

Who should attend? Anyone interested in the MapWindow project or related OSGeo .NET projects including DotSpatial, NTS, SharpMap, Whitebox and others.
We will also give opportunities to non-.NET OSGeo projects, like PostGIS, Geoserver, OpenLayers.

Be sure to attend this conference if you are an end user of the MapWindow Desktop Application or a programmer using the MapWindow or DotSpatial libraries in your own software, or if you are a student or educator looking for an easy to install, easy to use free GIS.
