The Cascadia chapter of the OSGeo is based on a regional FOSS GIS user group formed in 2007 called Cascadia Users of Geospatial Open Source (CUGOS). They are an active group of members who are passionate about open source software, GIS, and our region. They have members from all walks of life, a large spectrum of business and academia, and active OSGeo members (board members, charter members, and active project participants). CUGOS has held past meetings on campus, put on an all-day "Spring Fling" event at the UW in 2011 and 2012, and presented at last year's UW GIS Day.
On GIS Day, CUGOS will be offer a special Open Source GIS Demonstration event at the UW campus in place of their regular montly meeting. Stop by and get involved in the following presentations:
- Michael Rosen : "Open Source Software in at LizardTech."
- Roger Andre : “A Day in the Life of Open Source GIS”
