Picture of UNIGIS Admin Interested in mapping? Join the BCS Mapathon
FREE to attend Mapathon being held Tuesday 8 September at Park Inn, by Radisson, York.
The developer world has been utilising Hackathons for a number of years to rapidly create software for a common, often charitable purpose. The Mapathon adopts the same principles as a developers hackathon but, rather than software, our output will be high quality cartographic products that reveal previously unseen patterns in the data or maps the charity can use for marketing purposes.
The Mapathon is part of a collaborative week of activities run under the banner of Mapping Together and jointly hosted by The British Cartographic Society and Society of Cartographers at Park Inn, by Radisson, York 8-10 September. A full schedule of events is available at the http://www.soc.org.uk/mappingtogether/
The Mapathon is a fantastic opportunity to join together with other GI professionals and learn how to create better maps. Full details are attached. To book a place visit http://forms.geoinformationgroup.co.uk/
