MaptimePDX Hack Night
Esri R&D Center (aka Geoloqi HQ)

Hey map nerds, geo geeks, and the spatially curious: MaptimePDX is having a November meetup, and we want you to come hack with us!

MaptimePDX is a monthly/bi-weekly hack and learn event for the geographically inclined. November's event will be a hack night! Come out and work on your map project, or work on one of the exercises we will have for you to do. If you're brand new to maps and code, we will also have a group of people working on building their first web maps, with lots of people there to help!

Beginners are very welcome and encouraged to attend! Please bring a laptop if you can. If you're at all interested in casual mentoring at the event (a.k.a. answering questions or sharing what you do), please shoot us a message on Twitter.

We all use maps every day. Let's learn how to make them even better... together.

MaptimePDX Friday Morning Meetup
Ristretto Roasters (N Williams)

Come hangout, drink coffee, and chat with other geonerds. Just look for the mappy people. This Friday we're at Ristretto Roasters on N. Williams Ave.

And don't forget April's evening meetup:


MaptimePDX is the Portland, OR offshoot of MaptimeSF, a weekly meetup of mappers in San Francisco hacking on maps and doing mappy things. In the same tradition, we're aiming to provide meetups for hacking on map projects of all sorts. There's no board or leadership - just some people who are enthusiastic about maps and sharing knowledge. We'll post upcoming events here and summaries of things we learn along the way. Join us!

MaptimePDX: Mapping with Tableau - CoMeetup with the Portland Tableau User Group
WeWork Custom House

We will be joining forces with the Tableau User Meetup group this month to talk about mapping in Tableau!

Tableau is business intelligence software that allows anyone to easily connect to data, then visualize and create interactive, sharable dashboards. It's easy enough that any Excel user can learn it, but powerful enough to satisfy even the most complex analytical problems. Securely sharing your findings with others only takes seconds.


Our presenters:

Brittany Brannon of Slalom Consulting and PK Kase of Oregon Department of Transportation. Brit and PK will lead us in a hands-on knowledge-share of their work with Tableau mapping.

What to bring:

  1. Laptop

  2. Free version of Tableau Public

  3. Free Mapbox Account


6:00 – Gather and settle in

6:10 – A few words from our groups and sponsor

6:20 – Mapping with Tableau – hands-on so bring your laptop

Tableau mapping 101

Introduction to using Mapbox with Tableau

Brief overview of using ArcGIS and Tableau

Tableau map examples

7:20 – Tableau Doctor

Great opportunity to ask any questions about mapping with Tableau!

7:40 – The best part – meet other Tableau users and map makers!

Stick around to continue the conversations started by our presentations.

We'll be heading to Pints Brewing (412 NW 5th Ave, Portland, OR 97209) afterwards for anyone that is interested.

Lots to cover so RSVP and get there early!
