the first #geomob of 2015 will take place on the 13th of January at 18:30. Our old friends at UCL have generously agreed to have us back, this time we’ll be in the Gavin de Beer lecture theatre in the Anatomy building. If you’ll be attending please sign up on the lanyrd page so we have a sense of the numbers to expect.
The evening looks to be our best one yet - I have said that before, but this lineup looks even better! We have a great mix of six diverse geo topics.
- Robin Wilson will discuss his work digitising the John Snow cholera map.
- Peter Wells will tell us about the Open Addresses project
- Basil Safwat will present Telescope Cards
- Max Gadney will show off After the Flood’s London Squared map
- Ian Hamilton will present an accessible tube map
- Doug Specht will talk about ”Using GIS to legitimize User Generated Content (UGC) in human rights advocacy”
As always each speaker will have maximum 15 minutes (we may go slightly longer for the game), and then a few minutes of audience questions. After all that we’ll vote for the best speaker and head to a nearby pub for discussion.
Until then I wish all of you a great holiday season and a strong start to 2015. Hopefully Santa will leave an atlas, a SplashMap, a new GPS device, or similar under your tree. No doubt there will be a London OpenStreetMap Christmas gathering, details will appear here, and I hope to see you all there.
For those who can’t make it in January, we look forward to seeing you at the March 19th #geomob (sign up here). I welcome all speaker volunteers/suggestions.
Happy holidays and see you on the 13th of January at 18:30,
