If this does not excite you, what will?
The Cape Town meeting is still 3 weeks away so there is plenty of time to prepare a little presentation on anything you have done on QGIS, FOSSGIS or any GIS data project. Please let us know!
Please indicate below whether you would like to attend our 7th South African QGIS User Group Meetings in Gauteng/Cape Town. Please do not register if you know now already that you will most probably not be able to make it. The organisation of these meetings takes a lot of time and effort which is dependent on the number of participants.
You are encouraged to bring your PC/laptop to demonstrate something you have done or to try and find answers to problems you encounter. See you all there!
