Dgimap LogoWe are planning to hold a Geoforum event on the 20th of June in York at the National Railway Museum, so please keep the date free in your diary. It will be a free, all day event aimed at informing you of current geospatial developments at EDINA and the wider community, including the projects we are working on at the moment. It will also be an opportunity for you to give us feedback on the services we are providing and discuss geospatial issues with the team.

The day will be a mixture of presentations and workshops with plenty of time for networking with other geospatial people from across academia. Previous Geoforum events have been very successful in providing a space for those attending to share ideas about teaching and research using maps and spatial data.training course Please tell any friends and colleagues who may be interested; we will be using #geoforum on twitter.
