... and gathered the geobloggers here ...

Someone had to materialize this idea of ​​sitting in the same space, a group of people totally different in personality, thought and cultural context, but added to the variant of being Spanish speakers, are intensely passionate about what happens in the geospatial context.

This is the "I National Meeting of Geobloggers", promoted in the framework of the First Congress of Geomatics Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Valencia. For the organizers, it has not been easy, considering that in three hours it is expected to have an inspiring vision of how this happened, what role they play in the influence of the masses and where they could evolve.

It will be interesting, considering that the pattern of how a Geoblogger should be was never defined by anyone. It simply evolved as a result of individual, collective and conjunctural initiatives; some were born as a hobby, others as a temporary passion, others by a third party suggestion an afternoon of beers and fritanga. Also not all survived in time, some even had their sabbatical period and resurfaced again.

No matter how they got there, in the end they are people, «Geobloggers». Listening to that context, will give a dimension that little is known about who are behind this new entry on Monday at the 10 in the morning, the link on Twitter to the 12 at noon, or the photograph of the work team on Wednesday. Beyond the name or brand popularized, who is the Geoblogger when we hear him talk about a topic that you just have a few minutes because the next one comes.

Formal, hairy, casual, popular or anonymous, the set of Geobloggers has reached a stage where it is no longer important individual influence, but the whole with respect to what happens in the niche of technologies applied to earth sciences . Like it or not, the academy, the context of free code, the private company and above all the particular users came to be aware of what the Geobloggers closest to their discipline say, they count and even in some cases propose in their oracle.

Nobody named them Geobloggers, as soon as this is the first meeting, we will be able to listen to the "before", but we will have to be aware of what happens in the "after", since in these times of globalization, we can not stylize between the who writes individually once a month, the one that Tweet every 2 hours or the one that represents a collective blog. Undoubtedly everyone has a participation fee.

What is that fee ... we will understand it in consensus after the event of this 5 of July.

When and where

JUM 5 of 2017. Higher Technical School of Geodetic, Cartographic and Topographic Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Valencia. Building 7 I of the Campus of Vera. Room 0.1.

If someone can attend, you should not miss it. For those who are far away, they can continue streaming at the following address:

What Geobloggers will participate

All those bloggers who write with a certain periodicity, articles in their blogs (at least once a month or are distinguished on the Internet), as well as some of the most used tools today in geotechnologies.

To whom it is directed

The Agenda

Although it could undergo slight changes, the methodological script has already been proposed, which aims to create an important forum for discussion and debate of the profession, taking advantage of its members aware of the reality and current situation, as well as establishing synergies between different related qualifications. They have Geomatics as a link.
