Here are the talks for the May meetup:

Is Your Data in the Right Place at the Right Time?

Justin Lewis (TerraFrame)

An ETL (Extract Transform Load) is a relatively easy and efficient way to move and/or manipulate data in different environments. GeoKettle is a robust spatial ETL that provides support for many spatial formats and data stores. Justin's talk will provide an introductory overview of the GeoKettle interface, how to set up a basic process, and how the process can be automated.

When Your Data is No Longer Small

Allan Glen (MapMyFitness/Under Armour)

Allan will share some insights into the challenges of dealing with data at scale. His talk will highlight a variety of strategies that are used when traditional approaches may no longer be suitable.

    Great event. Quite interesting to see how big, bulky data is managed. I'll be be definitely looking a putting the GeoKettle on. My suggestion is to make your slide presentation text and graphics as big and simple as possible. The screen resolution of the monitors is quite low. Other than that, a good time was had by all.

    Here are the slides from the Geokettle talk. I barely touched on it but if you want to use GeoKettle with SQL Server look at the
    "Unsupported Databases" section in the second link on the second to last slide.

    Thanks for coming!
