NA Open Source GIS Conference Proceedings PDF Print E-mail
Written by Glenn Letham (GISuser editor)   
13 July 2004

The second MapServer Users Meeting and the first ever North American Open Source GIS Conference was held on June 9th to 11th in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The initial response from the Open Source GIS community is that the conference was a huge success. Conference proceedings and papers are now published on the event website.

According to event organisers, the initial response from the Open Source GIS community is that the conference was a huge success. "It was great to have people from private, government, academia, and communities all together discussing how Open Source GIS applies to their needs."

A fine job has been done putting together loads of material from the conference on the event website. A detailed image gallery is presented along with downloadable DOCs and Power points from virtually every presentation that was made. Topics covered include:

  • Mapping the Ocean with Open Source
  • UMN MapServer for Dummies
  • A Brief Survey of Open Source GIS Software
  • ArcIMS Emulation with IMSEMU
  • MapServer in the Pacific Islands
  • Intro to GRASS GIS
  • Partnerships between Industry and Communities through Open Source
  • And much more!
