Hey everyone,

( Sorry about the late notes, it's been a long process ).

There's a Nordic Open Geo Data Gathering, on the 27th October, same
location (Hønesfoss and Kartverket there) as #Hack4NO, just the day before
Hack4NO ( which is 28-29th).

There will be a a Nordic bunch from Wikimedia, Openstreetmap and
Humanitarian Open Streetmap, amongst others, presenting and workshopping on
current and new open geo tools and data.
Part of the programme is also dedicated to building Nordic cooperation
networks on open geodata and open geo tools.
