What is it?

ATX GIS day is being held in Austin, TX on Nov 13 to celebrate the use of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) data! You can think of it as a bunch of super cool data people getting together to talk about geography-based data and analysis techniques.




Why is it Awesome?


If the description didn’t already hook you, it’s awesome that someone has organized a space for data nerds geeking out over GIS data techniques.

Truthfully, GIS data analysis often create some of the most beautiful data visualizations out there. Examples: ggmap, rayshader and so many more.

The gathering will be held in the beautiful Austin Central Library. There will be talks, VR activities, musical guests and drinks at the Cookbook Cafe (a cafe which serves literary-themed food and cocktails).


How to Get Started?

Come join us! I’ll be speaking in the afternoon about making beautiful maps with R and ggmap.
