Monthly meeting of the Portland open source GIS group. Projects big and small are usually presented monthly along with rousing conversation and discussion. All are welcome, no need to RSVP - our group ranges from the geo-curious to the überhackers so bring your ideas and questions!

This month's agenda: exciting happenings in geodata, upcoming geoevents and bring your own geo-show and tell.

Special guest special guest is Dave Percy, from PSU Geology. Percy will be talking about "Web mapping with QGIS2Web":

Qgis2Web is a plugin for QGIS, desktop GIS software, that converts map data into a Leaflet app running in the browser. This demo will show how to create a simple online map with multiple raster layers and one vector layer that has image popups.This particular application is unusual in that it is a thin-section of rock approximately 24x46 mm with embedded electron microscopy images.

Percy is PSU Geology department's GIS Geek for the last 20 years, and helped form PDX-OSGeo way back in 2006, so come on out and enjoy some pizza, learn about QGIS, and get your monthly OSGeo fix.

As always, there will be pizza! And BYOB is always welcome.
