FOSS4G announces presentation and workshop program

By on 3 October, 2018

The upcoming FOSS4G State of the Map Oceania conference has released its draft schedule of presentations and technical workshops, and it’s a diverse, heavyweight affair.

The event is a regional symposium for the open geospatial software community, taking place on November 20-23 in Melbourne. The four day event features a full day of workshops, a two-day conference, a community day and social events.

The workshop program is not for the tech-shy, with fourteen discrete 3.5 hour sessions being offered over the course of the day, covering everything from developing full-stack applications on AWS with open technologies, to open source point cloud processing and model creation.

The confirmed presentations form a similarly formidable schedule, covering a massive body of topics across nine streams, covering data, FOSS4G adoption, new technology, data publishing and portals, remote sensing, state of the map, the_geom, tiles, visualisation and web mapping.

A sample of some of the full-length presentations includes tantalising topic areas: calculating notional margins for electoral redistributions, health resource mapping in the Asia-Pacific, adopting QGIS in a corporate environment, next-generation point cloud processing with DotLoom, UAV change detection with FME and QGIS, dealing with the antimeridian — and much more.

Following the conference is community day, featuring a code sprint and ‘mapathon’ for developers to work on projects of interest in concert, as well as for members of the broader community to contribute.

Registrations are open for attendees and sponsors at FOSS4G State of the Map Oceania 2018.
