Hi and Welcome! We are a group of enthusiastic people interested in maps and the technologies and data that create them. We are a group of techies, artists, programmers, designers, geographers, developers, conservationists, data geeks, students, and urban planners. Really, anybody interested in maps.
Maps and spatial information has long been used for exploring, understanding, and planning our world. Maps, as data and art, provide a medium to discover and critique our environment and community. Our meetups are designed to help bring together a broad community of users while supporting collaboration and developing a knowledge base around geotechnologies.
Come join us and see why every X needs a Y.
The GIS Education Center (GISEC, http://ccsfgis.org/) is a non-profit program in San Francisco offering educational workshops, social events, and a lecture series around GIS and other related topics.
