AGI GeoCommunity and w3gConf Wordles

I just attended w3gconf and AGI GeoCommunity 2011 (from Tuesday 20th to Thursday 22nd September) in Nottingham at the East Midlands Conference Centre.

Here are some Wordles from the Tweets at the event (#w3g for w3gConf and #geocom for GeoCommunity). I used to create these. You can make your own too!

The #w3g 2011 wordle – much tweets of @madprof plenary talk on opendata! Get it as a PDF.


The #geocom 2011 wordle (last 500 tweets only!) – it’s all about maps! Also a mention for INSPIRE too. Get it as a PDF.

Thanks to @stevenfeldman and @vicchi for creating the Tweet Docs which I based these wordles on.

Note – a more detailed post/report will follow on the 2 events but time is lacking right now.




Geospatial events in the UK this fortnight!

There are a number of Geospatial events taking place this fortnight in the UK.

1. Google EMEA Geospatial Summit – Tuesday 13th Sep 2011, London
As the event website says, “In this event we will share our Geospatial strategy, and showcase our innovative new product, Google Earth Builder. We have gathered some of the most compelling and visionary speakers from Google’s global GEO team. You will also be able to enjoy live demos of the latest products announced by Google Enterprise.”
I’ll be there and hope that you are too!

2. GeoMob London – Thursday 15th Sep 2011, London
The next GeoMob event will include speakers from Social Ties and GISCloud. I can’t be there but it sounds great! Sign up for the event on Lanyrd. If you are going please tell us more about how it is/was.

3.  Ushahidi Meet-up – Friday 16th Sep 2011, London
Ushahidi, StandbyTaskForce and Crisismappers are meeting at the Star of Kings, for a “casual night of talking mapping over some pints”! Again I can’t make this one – let me know if you are going!

4. w3gconf and AGI GeoCommunity 2011 – Tuesday 20th to Thursday 22nd September, Nottingham

These should be very interesting. w3gconf is the (un)conference which “is targeted firmly at the geographic community at large, from the geographic professional, be they GIS or Web 2.0 to the latent geographer who’s heard about this thing called “location” and wants to know more.” I’ll be there and it’ll be my first time at an unconference – sounds fun! The main event, AGI GeoCommunity ’11 “will open on the 21 September and offer two full days of thought leadership, practical education, knowledge transfer and real world best practice and case studies”. I’m presenting on the Thursday about “Spatial Uncertainty in Catastrophe Modelling” – I hope to see you there! If you can’t be there I’ll be writing up a report of the event on this site shortly afterwards.

Happy geo-eventing!
