Open source mapping (GIS) Unconference

Portland State University (PSU) - Smith Memorial Center


Hosted by the Portland Open Source Geo User Group, this FREE event will happen on Friday April 18th following GIS In Action, in PSU's Smith Memorial Student Union, in rooms 238 and 296/8.

This is a participant-driven event - if you've never been to an unconference before, the format and sessions are determined on the day of the event by the people attending. No idea is too big or too small. Everyone gathers in the morning and decides how to organize it. If you have something to share, you throw your idea up on the board, sessions get arranged, rearranged and rooms are assigned by the crowd. It just sort of all happens - you have to experience it to understand how well this can work. It's fun!
