Open Source Geospatial Group in Michigan?

Jessica Kane
Greetings from Northern Michigan!

Recently my business partner and I spoke with Guido about how to get involved in the OSGeo-US movement, so I was thinking about that as I attended one of Michigan's statewide GIS conferences last week. The conference was heavily Esri focused, but I did meet a handful of people who are using open source geospatial solutions or are interested in learning more. Before I reach out to them to form an informal Michigan open source user group, I wanted to check with this list serve to see if anyone knows of any Michigan groups already formed (or forming) that we could tap into instead of starting our own. Let me know if you've heard of any.

Thanks!

Jessica

Hey Jessica,

Thanks for sharing your findings at the regional conference. I was wondering, what topics did come up at the conference and what kind of industries were present. Was it government, commercial, education, or other?

As this group and email discussion list are new and small perhaps it would be better to ask questions about people coordinating to the OSGeo general discussion list. I would be happy to post your question on the other list and report back here if that would make things simpler. 

Finally, I recently heard that this years SOTMUS will be held in Detroit. Would this be something you might be interested in attending? If so would you be willing to represent this group there if we got a table/booth? http://2018.stateofthemap.us
