Fellow geomobbers, I digitally come before you today with good news: we’ve finalized the line up for our first event of 2012 and I believe you’ll agree that we are in for a geotreat (and I’m not just refering to the post event geobeers).
First of all, let us again thank our gracious hosts, University College London, who have generously allowed us to return. On the evening of Thursday, February the 16th, things will kick off at 18:30 in G07 in the Chadwick. As at past events we’ll have some signs up on campus directing you. Please arrive on time so we can get started promptly. Also, please register at the event page over on Lanyrd.
Ok, enough organisational chit chat, let’s move on to our lineup for the evening:
Anna Powell-Smith will discuss her work on DomesdayMap.
Bertrand Clerc and Benedikt Gross will be discussing their work on Mashing up OSM and Mental Maps.
Ed Freyfogle will discuss Nestoria’s recent switch from Google Maps to OSM.
Matt Amos of MapQuest Open will give us a peak behind their tech curtain.
As usual the format will be a very brief intro, then each speaker will present for 10-15 minutes with a few minutes for questions, and the mob will then retire to the the Jeremy Bentham for discussion and geobeers graciously subsidised by our sponsor Lokku.
One final note, if you like geomob, you may well be interested in the London Citizen Cyberscience Summit also being held at UCL on the 17th and 18th. Please check it out.
We look forward to seeing everyone on February 16th.
