Portland Area Open Source Geospatial
All are welcome! Our group ranges from the geo-curious to researchers, analysts, and überhackers that use GIS and mapping in their work. Have a problem you're trying to solve? tool/business you're developing? Website you need some help with? Come tell us about it!
We are an official user group of OSGeo (http://www.osgeo.org/) and a special interest group of URISA (http://www.urisa.org/)
We meet once a month at different locations within Portland. No need to RSVP, all are welcome. Meeting details are typically posted a few days ahead of time on the wiki and google group.
