The schedule for FedGeoDay - a one day conference on modern, open geospatial tools and how to use them in the government - is out and is filled with case studies, discussions, and technology showcases. Check out the full schedule for the conference, happening February 28 in Washington, DC.

It will be a tight event with sessions ranging from case studies on effective maps and geo applications from the National Park Service, NOAA, and Code for America to panel discussions on what government data should look like to be most accessible and best serve the public good.

We’ll be participating in several sessions throughout the day:

  • Dave will show a series of beautiful interactive web maps made with MapBox.
  • Chris will expand on his thoughts on improving geoportals to maximize the impact of open government data.
  • Alex will walk through how to get started using OpenStreetMap data and contributing to the project.
  • Eric will demo how to use TileMill to make gorgeous web maps.

Come out to see new, powerful, and flexible geospatial tools in action and to see how you can use them in your projects, both in and outside of the government. Registration is open, and more details on the schedule and event are at For updates on the conference, follow @fed_geo on Twitter.
