Los Angeles Spatial / Location Developers Meetup Group

by James Richards April 02, 2010
image Today I created a new Meetup group for Spatial / Location Developers in Los Angeles.

Here is the group description:

The Los Angeles Spatial / Location Developers Group is for software developers working with any spatial or location enabled platforms. The group aims to be platform and vendor neutral.

Some of the technologies we may discuss include ESRI, Google Maps, Bing Maps, the OSGeo stack, Open Street Map, SimpleGeo, and Social Location APIs from Foursquare, Gowalla, Brightkite, Twitter, Facebook (forthcoming), etc.

All levels of developers are welcome, from seasoned GIS professionals to those new to geospatial or mobile location development.

As this is a new group we will be actively looking for creative input on the direction and focus that members want to see.

Meetup groups organize online and then meet face to face for real world interaction. I've been participating in other groups recently and found them to be fun and helpful. I’m hoping this Meetup group will grow into a place for geospatial and location developers to interact and learn from one another.

If you are in the Los Angeles area and are interested in geospatial or location development, please join the group at:


If you’re not in LA but know someone here who might be interested, please pass the word along. And if you're really inspired, start a spatial / location developers Meetup group in your own city!
