We once again partnered with the California Geographic Information Association (CGIA) and Geospatial Los Angeles for our annual social event during the ESRI User Conference. Turnout was tremendous, and it was great to see everyone get together for great pizza and beer and Basic Urban Kitchen.
We had a small gathering today at Benchmark Brewing Company in San Diego. PIXIA Corp showed highlights of their HiPER LOOK software suite, including the HiPER EARTH 3D globe and their portable OGC-compliant data servers called HiPER DRIVEs.
Here's a link to a video of these capabilities... youtu.be/nzfZchovfF0
We enjoyed a great presentation tonight from Orca Maritime! Thank you again to Tony, Martha, and the whole team who came to present! Afterwards, we enjoyed some good beer and comradery at Ballast Point Brewery. It was great seeing everyone there!
Thank you to Wendy and the entire Encinitas GIS team for hosting our May 2015 GeoSD gathering. They showed how the City of Encinitas currently uses GIS to streamline the city's operations, and they shared their plans for future adoption of additional technologies. Afterwards, we walked down to D Street for happy hour and socialization.
Early in March, GeoSD kicked off our 2015 event season with a fun networking event at Ballast Point Brewing Company's new location in Mira Mesa, CA. Thanks to everyone for showing up, and thanks also to Todd Smith and the team from AGI who showed up to mingle with our members and to demonstrate their open source globe, called Cesium, as well as PIXIA's Deployable Drive technology.
Finally, I want to give a special thanks to Ballast Point... GeoSD arrived with roughly 30 people, but without a reservation! Ballast Point's management team very graciously allowed us to use one of their private meeting rooms for our gathering and presentation. Needless to say, we highly recommend this place for great beer, food, and people!!!
We had a great turnout on GIS Day! Jessica Durst from BAE Systems graciously provided demonstrations of their GXP Xplorer software at our happy hour at Stone Brewing Company's venue in Liberty Station. Local GIS professionals from municipal government, universities, military commands and industry enjoyed the demo and shared their insights with one another.
Congratulations, Geospatial San Diego! We had approximately 30 members show up for our first gathering at the San Diego Red Cross Chapter Disaster Operations Center (CDOC) today. Thank you again to our gracious hostess and guest speaker, Laura Millan (Horner), who gave a wonderful presentation about the Red Cross!
Below are some snapshots of our gathering at the Red Cross. You may notice that we are missing photos from the after-party at Societe Brewing Company. Everyone was having such a good time that I guess we forgot to take any pictures! (If you attended and took some, please let us know!)
Geospatial San Diego has been in operation since late 2013, and we are over 120 members and growing. Thanks to all of our members who participate in this wonderful community!!!
