If you are interested in learning more about working with geographic data through web mapping or desktop analysis, please join us at the "Flathead Valley Geospatial drinkup". We will be having an informal get together this Thursday, April 24 from 6-8pm in Whitefish, MT. Full details are available at:
We encourage newcomers to the Geospatial arena to attend, learn from seasoned GIS professionals, and hopefully we can cross-pollinate with seasoned programming professionals about how to incorporate more geographic data in our existing and future projects. There is no formal agenda or presentations are planned. Just bring some discussion ideas like cool projects you're currently working on, or geospatial problems that you'd like to solve or learn more about.
If you are curious to learn more about the application of geospatial technology in our world, I encourage you to watch some excellent (short, ~2-5 minute) videos at the Geospatial Revolution Project:
We hope to see you there,
