Open Source GIS Tools
Open source GIS is bringing the power of geospatial technology to all sorts of different organizations in California. During this full-day workshop members of the California OSGeo Chapter show you how they are using open source GIS software in their own organizations. The speakers will demonstrate how to use popular open source desktop GIS software (including QGIS, PostGIS, GeoServer and others), explain how open source GIS software fits into their own workflows, and provide examples of projects where they have successfully implemented open source GIS. 

Making Dynamic Maps with CartoDB
In this session, we will quickly unpack how to tackle common and complex GIS challenges and analysis as we go from raw data to beautifully insightful, dynamic, interactive maps for the web.  Participants will learn fundamentals of making maps in the CartoDB editor, and progress into advanced topics such as using Torque.js to create animated visualizations for pattern and anomaly detection, robust real-time enabled spatial queries and comprehensive spatial analysis using PostgreSQL & PostGIS. Focusing on working with different kinds of spatial data, participants will be equipped to use CartoDB's editor and advanced functionality in future analysis and prediction projects after completion.

A laptop computer is required for this session and we recommend you install QGIS before hand. 

Registration Fee: $100
