Interested in Open Data? Tired of Google Maps? Then our workshop on
Open Mapping is for you! During the day we'll introduce you to
map-making with free software and open data.

- Editing and re-using OpenStreetmap
- Getting started with the PostGIS geographic database
- Interactive maps on the web with OpenLayers
- Map styling tools

As a sample dataset we'll be working with some data on common good
land in Glasgow and Edinburgh. But you're encouraged to bring along
your own data, problems and plans.

A free lunch and refreshments will be provided.

The event is being organised by DevCSI and Edina (Geospatial
Engagement Community and Outreach - GECO)

Registration from 9am, start at 10am, finishes at 5pm.
