Let's get this started off right with a little social planning session in central Phoenix. I'd like to see who wants to be involved and the direction people want to take. You can be Esri, open source, CAD, python, web mapping, or just a love of maps to be part of the discussion.
The outcome of this meeting is to get a monthly PHXGeo meetup going with a great core of people involved. I picked The Turf because it is centrally located.
