OSGeo Africa and the South African QGIS User Group invite you to the first regional FOSS4G event in Africa and the first national QGIS User Group conference

We will be joined by SAGTA (Southern African Geography Teachers' Association) and GeoforAll

It will be nine years since the international FOSS4G 2008 in Cape Town and one year from the founding of the South African QGIS User Group. It is also a lead-up to FOSS4G 2018 in Dar es Salaam.

As a wave of 'Openness' - open source, open data, open everything - sweeps across the world and gains traction and momentum in every facet of society, there couldn't be a better opportunity to share what you and others are doing.

Furthermore, GIS is part of the curriculum in South African schools, yet schools and teachers are poorly equipped to teach it, let alone use it to teach Geography and other subjects. That's why we've teamed up with the world of secondary and tertiary education.

Submit a presentation or workshop!
