That’s probably an overstatement.
The Boston geo-calendar is jammed packed with awesome stuff right now. If you are in the area over the next few weeks, check out some of these upcoming events:
- The always active and always awesome AvidGeo Meetup group is hosting an event on Thursday, April 17th – Seven Habits of Effective Map Design with Mike Foster of graphicarto at the hack/reduce space in Cambridge.
- OpenStreetMap Boston will be hosting a OSM US Editathon on Saturday, April 26 at TelenavBoston. This is the first event for this brand new Meetup group!
- The 37 Billion Miles Challenge is ongoing, and submissions are being taken through April 19th. I can’t wait to see what is submitted. Open data goodness!
- The Northeast Arc Users Group will be holding it annual spring meeting on May 13th, at UMASS Amherst. For more details visit the NEARC site.
- Even though the Hubway Data Challenge is closed, they recently released Hubway trip history data through the end of the 2013 season. Space-time mapping, anyone?
- Also – Keep an eye out for the Center for Geographic Analysis at Harvard University monthly newsletter. They often have upcoming geo-events and talks listed, some of which are open to the wider community.
Now, I am sure I missed a few events. If you know of an event that I missed tweet it out to @GISDoctor and I will make sure to add it to this list and retweet to my followers!
