As we mentioned last month we’ve been organising an informal, hands-on workshop focusing on open source visualisation technologies. This will take place on this coming Saturday in London. Details are as follows:

Trampoline Systems have kindly offered to host the first workshop. They use a mixture of open source and bespoke software packages to produce award winning social computing software for large enterprises – including Channel 4, Raytheon and the UK Foreign Office. It should be interesting to see the interactive visualisations they’ve produced!

The event should be a good opportunity for people new to this area to learn a bit more about the range of open source visualisation software packages that are out there – and for open source visualisation veterans to showcase their work and to exchange their experiences.
