    Intro to Neogeography - Armchair map making
    Presented by
    Alex Mandel
    PhD Student, Geography Graduate Group, UC Davis
    Chair, Systems Administration Committee, Open Source Geospatial Foundation

    Want a map of somewhere you're going, a visualization of somewhere you've been, or just a interesting mashup of geographic data over the web; with a dash of GPS/smartphone points and maybe a few geotagged photos? If everyone knows the basics of spatial data formats, concepts, data sources, and software tools they too can be neogeographers making and sharing maps, from their perspective and from the comfort of their living room, with the rest of the world.

    This talk will give you the knowledge necessary to make your own maps with open source software, free data, and some general cartography tips.
