At the first Open Visualisation Workshop last month, we found there was significant demand for regular workshops. Hence, the second Open Visualisation Workshop will take place a week from Saturday! Details are as follows:
- When: Saturday 21st June 2008, 11am – 5pm
- Where: Trampoline Systems, 8-15 Dereham Place, London, EC2A 3HJ (view on OpenStreetMap)
- Wiki: http://okfn.org/wiki/OpenVisualisation/Workshop
Once again, 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.
This time we hope to get stuck into to tinkering around with several software packages, and possibly start work on a new project visualising some open material!
