From June 25 through June 28, 2012 the Open Source GIS Conference (also known as the 3rd International MapWindow GIS Conference 2012) was held at VanHall-Larenstein University of Applied Sciences, Velp, The Netherlands.
This conference was organized by the MapWindow GIS, DotSpatial, SharpMap and OSGeo.nl communities in partnership with Alumni association VVA-Larenstein.
The purpose of the 4-day conference was to highlight significant aspects of Open Source GIS.
The first 3 days had a strong international character as developers and users from around the world gathered to share experiences and demonstrate the latest applications. Each morning started with a keynote and continue with several presentations. These presentations were about Open Source GIS and Open Data in the broadest sense possible. There were presentations about MapWinGIS and the SOBEK model, on SharpMap, Geostatistics, QGIS, OpenStreetMap, etc. After lunch workshops were held.
This was an excellent opportunity to participate in workshops, present your projects, and be an integral part of the open source GIS community!
