  • In our next Meetup Stephen Christense­n will be giving a presentation on Spatial Wizards, Elephants, and OGRes: Pouring the Foundation to Engineer a GIS with Open Source.
    Regardless of whether you’re building a web map, RESTful service, desktop GUI, or ETL tool, there are some common themes you will need to consider and implement when building a non-trivial GIS. How should I store my data? Can I quickly access the right data as my app grows? Is it feasible to interact with my clients’ arbitrary GIS data to add value to the app? We will focus on tools written for the C-family of programming languages, specifically GDAL/OGR, PostGIS, and postgres Foreign Data Wrappers, then show you how to use Python to pull it all together and build a respectable application.
    I am very much looking forward to this presentation! See you there!
    Travel to TranSystems in Crown Center, Just park in the parking lot at 2400 Pershing Road. The parking lot entrance is on the north side. Just go in front of the West Crown Center hotel, keep going east to McGee Street. McGee runs into the parking garage.
    Go in to parking garage, take a ticket if you have to, but parking is free after 6pm.
    Then park on either the GOLD or ORANGE level. Just look for the big 2400 white numbers on the GOLD wall or ORANGE wall. Next to the 2400 Numbers are the elevators.
    Take the elevators to the 4th floor.
    That is TranSystems front desk, our meeting in behind the front desk in the Union Station Conference Room.
