PDXPUG – February meeting

When: 6-8pm Thursday Feb 16, 2017
Where: iovation
Who: Darrell Fuhriman
What: Just enough PostGIS: a brief intro to spatial data in Postgres

In this quick overview, Darrell will cover the spatial data model, data manipulation, spatial joins, and do some basic analysis.

Darrell has been active in the local Open Source Geospatial community for years, most exhaustingly as Chair of FOSS4G 2014, the world’s largest Open Source Geospatial conference. He also teaches Spatial Database Design in the Geography Department at Portland State University, and supplements his adjunct instructor income as VP of System Engineering at Renew Financial — a clean energy financing startup.

If you have a job posting or event you would like me to announce at the meeting, please send it along. The deadline for inclusion is 5pm the day before the meeting.

Our meeting will be held at iovation, on the 32nd floor of the US Bancorp Tower at 111 SW 5th (5th & Oak). It’s right on the Green & Yellow Max lines. Underground bike parking is available in the parking garage; outdoors all around the block in the usual spots. No bikes in the office, sorry!

iovation provides us a light dinner (usually sandwiches or pizza).

Elevators open at 5:45 and building security closes access to the floor at 6:30.

See you there!
