Reminder! We’re just a few days away…

FOSS4G Huntsville will be held in Madison at the city hall on August 14th. Registration begins at 8:30 and presentations start at 9am.

FOSS4G is an acronym for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial. This event is an opportunity for for GIS users in the area to get together and discuss projects, software, and get to know one another. If you aren’t familiar with open source GIS software, it’s an opportunity to learn about tools that can augment your current stack.

We will also have free food!

The event is free.  Register here

Pre-registering will help us figure out how much food we need. However, we will also have on-site registration.
