You are invited to sessions to learn about Open Source tools for GIS and mapping on the Web. We start with an introductory session, and then show hands-on how to actually do it . So participants bring their laptop, we provide the theory, the software and guidance. Some dedicated lectures on topics of modern cartography in the context of open source geospatial technologies as well as the background of cartographic information systems will be given as well.
No specific requirements and skills are needed for participation other than your interest in finding out about the potential of open source, open standards, open data and spatial data infrastructures for geospatial domain.
Participation is free.
UN members will be priviledged if there are too many aplications.
