Federal Government GIS and Geospatial Conference 2013

OpenGeo is going to sponsor FedGeo Day 2013 at Washington DC on Feb 28, 2013. The theme of the conference is about Modern Tools for GIS, Geo Data & Cartography, which will introduce you to GIS, cartography, web mapping, and map publishing tools, show you what you can do with them, and walk through how and why government agencies are using them to dramatically improve their mapping, cartography, and GIS projects.

The conference announcement from their newsletter...

OpenGeo is proud to support FedGeo Day, the exciting new conference in Washington DC. The event offers a platform for those who work in or with federal agencies to share their experiences with modern open source geospatial technologies.

We’re looking forward to seeing case studies of how these tools are being used in government, what benefits they bring, and why so many agencies are shifting to open source technology. There will also be interactive demos that explore specific open source tools and applications. The schedule is packed with programming that should be particularly attractive for those for those who make technology decisions within the federal government.

OpenGeo will be presenting on our new enterprise console and on how the advances to server-side processing (added to the OpenGeo Suite in the 3.0 release) are altering the landscape for ‘traditional’ GIS.

We hope you'll join us to see new, powerful and flexible open geospatial tools and find out how you can use them in your projects. Registration is open, and more details on the schedule and event are at For updates on the conference, follow @fed_geo on Twitter.
