    Thanks for an interesting talk, sorry I to run. Mentioned http://www.gdal.org/ to get read access to different data formats. Best installed as part of http://www.osgeo.org/ to ensure all dependencies etc are included. Cheers,

    I'm new to these meetups but looking forward to it. I'm wondering however - is it in the format of a lecture, or a practical session ? If practical, do we need to bring a laptop or will it be in a computer lab ?
    Thanks,
    James

      This meeting will have the format of a lecture. We have workshops over the year too. The format of each event depends on the organizer.My name is given here on meetup.com as the event host, but in reality there are several meeting organizers.

    Guys are you aware that this clashed with a MongoDB meetup?

    February 15, 2013

    • Kevin O.

      yes. We try not to clash with other groups meetups but it often can not be avoided - due to speaker availability, venue availability and so on.
