Celebrating GIS in Arusha

Open day on map making and GIS at the Conservation Resource Centre, 14 November

The Conservation Resource Centre (CRC) is a small (but helpful!) non-profit educational organisation based in Arusha that works with students and researchers in science and conservation.

If you’re interested in learning about using maps, using a GPS, or making your own maps, the CRC is hosting an informal ‘open day’ for World GIS Day on the 14th of November, which will be an opportunity for hands-on use of GPS units, a chance to talk to people who use GPS and computerised mapping professionally, and to learn about free and open-source applications for making your own maps.

g|Tanzania
is happening this week in Dar:

The Google team is thrilled to announce our first g|Tanzania, happening February 2-3 in Dar es Salaam. We’re looking forward to engaging with this community of developers, business leaders, and entrepreneurs who are as passionate about technology as we are! 

They’ll be holding a MapUp after the main event:

A Google MapUp is an event in which a group of people get together to map their world… often a specific area such as a town or city. Avid cartographers (like you!) use Google Map Maker to add and edit roads, streams, schools, and more. Following a review for accuracy, new additions and edits are incorporated in Google Maps for millions of people around the world to see and use!

Here’s the link/invite to the MapUp, to be held at COSTECH on the 4th of Feb.
