GeoDC Meetup Tonight on Geodata Formats

July 01 2013 by Bonnie Bogle

Join us tonight for the July GeoDC meetup on geodata formats starting at 7:00 pm at Stetson’s. John Firebaugh, in town from San Francisco, will present on the GeoJSON file format, walking through when and why to use it, how to convert to it, and how to publish and edit data in the format. He’ll be joined by Ben Balter of GitHub who will talk about GitHub’s new support of GeoJSON, how this lets you go from data to map in seconds, and the bright future GitHub sees for open source mapping. Finally, Andrew Turner will do a quick overview of the geodata formats that exist and when you should use them. See you tonight.
