GIS and Geospatial Events in 2020

I got asked a couple of weeks ago which events I'd be attending next year (2020) and it set off my rage...every year I look to booking some great events and then give up as I fumble through loads of poorly cobbled together websites trying to find when and where the (GIS and Geospatial) events … Continue reading GIS and Geospatial Events in 2020
