What we're about

Hi and Welcome! We are a group of enthusiastic people interested in maps and the technologies and data that create them. We are 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.

BayGeo is the local non-profit for users of geospatial technology, people new to mapping, and GIS professionals. BayGeo establishes interests groups and manages a coalition of local "geo" groups:

BayGeo Partners:
- GeoMeetup
- SF Bay Area GIS User Group
- SCGIS (Society of Conservation GIS)
- GIS Education Center @ CCSF
- SF Estuary Geospatial Workgroup
- South BayGeo

BayGeo Initiatives:
- BayGeo's Education Workgroup
- BayGeo's Mapping for Social Justice
- BayGeo's Open Data Workgroup
- BayGeo's Young Geoprofessionals

BayGeo and its partners offer educational workshops, social events, and a lecture series around "geo" and other related topics.

GeoBeers Oakland - In-Person and VIRTUAL!

Online event

Geobeers is a casual get-together of folks interested in geo; the technology, data, and applications that use spatial data. It's a great opportunity to catch up and meet OpenStreetMappers, developers, data scientist, geographers, cartographers and designers, and anyone else interested in spatial.

Geobeers Oakland happens the third Thursday of every month.

We are continuing our online presence (see the link to the online event when you RSVP), but we are also beginning to experiment, starting 7/15/21, with a hybrid, in-person and online event, too! We would be delighted to see you at our in-person location for this event:

Telegraph Beer Garden
2318 Telegraph Avenue
Oakland, CA[masked]-minute walk from 19th Street BART!

We will gather at one of the outdoor picnic tables at the location, but Telegraph Beer Garden requires masks when ordering drinks and food from the bar.

See you there!
