QGIS North America 2020
July 17, 24, 31

This virtual conference will be held on three consecutive Fridays in
July.  Each day will begin with a workshop, and then the rest of the
day will feature sessions with different speakers on a variety of
topics all focused on QGIS, the free open-source software program for
geospatial analysis and mapping.

Registration (free) is required for the hands-on workshops, which may
fill up quickly.  However, we plan to stream the workshops to allow
anyone to watch (if not participate) even if we reach maximum capacity
for these interactive sessions.

The regular sessions will be streamed for anyone to watch, no
registration necessary.

Although this was originally billed as a “North America” event, it
features presenters from around the world.  New York is well
represented, with several speakers from across our state:

* Alaina Mallette (NYS Tug Hill Commission) is leading an introductory
QGIS workshop in Spanish (simultaneous with an English version)

* Brett Edmond Carlock (Town of Brighton, Monroe County) is speaking
about SLYR, a bridge between ESRI and QGIS

* Mickey Dietrich (NYS Tug Hill Commission) is speaking about
transitioning to QGIS

* Michael Jabot (SUNY Fredonia) is speaking about integrating QGIS and
NASA’s GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the
Environment program)

* Robert Kibbee (History Center in Tompkins County) will be speaking
about HistoryForge and QGIS

* Scott Geis (NYS GIS) will be speaking about geocoding using the
MMQGIS plugin and the NYS authoritative address data

I hope that you can join us, supporting our fellow New Yorkers who are
speaking, and learning more about QGIS!
