Just a reminder, if you haven’t registered yet for Geo4LibCamp please register as soon as possible.
Geo4LibCamp is a hands-on meeting for anyone interested in how libraries can manage and provide access to geospatial resources. This event is often attended by map librarians, metadata specialists, application developers, geospatial professionals, and educators. The main focus is to share best-practices, solve common problems, and address technical issues with integrating geospatial data into a repository and associated services. For the purposes of the camp, we broadly define geospatial data from scanned maps and aerial photography to highly structured shapefiles.

Please see the Geo4LibCamp website for venue information, a tentative agenda, and more!

We hope to see you there!
