GITA Day 1

GITA in Denver
Denver welcomes the GITA show – a shop window sticker !!

Made my first presentation today in the interoperabilty session hosted by the Open Geospatial Consortium , and covered the use of GML. To download a pdf of the presentation click here (warning 5Mb!) A good set of presentations I thought, which came from a number of different perspectivies.

This is the third time I have attended GITA and each year to my eyes it appears to get smaller with little that is new. Is this the result of the industry reaching maturity or the impact of vendor websites on the need for industry trade shows.

After a few years maintaining the familiy blog www.blakeparsons.com I think it is time to try and develop a site more related to my day job and to technology in general. – No kids pictures here. I’m also trying out some different technology, WordPress a php based solution that is dynamic and which will allow me to experiment more. The first experiment a real time weather feed – watch this space..
