The future of geo is open. FedGeoDay is a one day conference exploring how modern open source applications can be used in government to dramatically improve mapping, cartography, GIS, and map publishing and lead to increased efficiencies, cost savings, and simply put, better end results. See the schedule.
Case studies will walk through what government agencies are doing with open tools, explain how they use them in place of expensive proprietary systems, and the impact they have on the end result. Technology demos will introduce you to open source tools, showing how they can be used and how to start using them. Topical sessions will explain the hype behind different technologies and dive into problem solving discussions around common problems experiences across agencies. If you work in geo in the federal government, and especially if you make any technology decisions, you'll want to be at FedGeoDay. Come learn what's possible with modern alternatives for GIS, geo data, and cartography.
