Dear alumni, students and friends,
after our GDAL/OGR workshop with Jakob Miksch I was able to organize another public HFT/Geo4ALL/ICA/OSGeo lecture/workshop entitled
“Humanitarian Mapping and Spatial Analysis”
given by Rupert Allan (see https://rupertallan.com/) next Monday afternoon, at 17:15 MESZ/GMT+2.
Rupert will talk based on his practical experiences as Former Country Manager for Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) in Uganda. I met him for the first time at FOSS4G 2018 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and we also could invite him to AGSE 2018 in Windhoek, Namibia. He brings with himself an interesting mixture of different educational and professional backgrounds, as eh holds a Masters in Visual Culture and Anthropology from the University of Wales, and is a researcher associated with the Displacement Studies Research Network (University of Plymouth, UK), and the Manson Unit, (Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), London), see also https://www.sas.ac.uk/publications/mapping-crisis.
I am sure we will get an inspiring talk in this meeting.Please let me know if you want to participate, then I will send you the Zoom invitation.
If you like you can invite friends and colleagues from home or around the world!
See you on Monday – Franz-Josef
