GvSIG 2.0 and Risk Management: 2 webinars approaching

It is interesting how traditional learning communities have evolved, and what previously required a conference room with its complications of distance and space, from an iPad can be witnessed from anywhere in the world.

In this context, it is very close to developing two webinars that we should all take advantage of, considering that for this it is not necessary to leave the office or the conventional work:

gvSIG Desktop 2.0

This will be the 7 of May and is promoted by MundoGEO and the gvSIG Association.

Webinar 7 de Mayo and includes a presentation of the new features of the new version gvSIG, and is ideal to know the main differences between this line and the 1.12x versions that will no longer be continued under that development after the maturity of this version reached the degree of being released as a stable version. So it will be interesting to know the actions that will be carried out in the coming months.

With free registrations, this online event is aimed at all gvSIG Desktop users and developers who are interested in knowing the main features of the 2.0 version, and the future of it.

The speaker will be Álvaro Anguix, General Director of the gvSIG Association. The participants of the webinar will be able to interact with the presenter through the chat, as well as being able to follow the event via Twitter (@mundogeo #webinar). All online participants of this seminar will receive certificates of their participation.

New emergency management using Cartography.

Geospatial-webinars-logoThis is promoted by Directions Magazine, which will learn how the Crisis Response team made preparedness information available to emergency response personnel and citizens during Hurricane Sandy. Using geospatial tools, such as Google Maps Engine, the Crisis Response team worked with several disaster-related agencies to collect and share information through Crisis maps, an open source tool developed by the team.
