In addition to participating in this event we would like to celebrate the geospatial industry and meet users from the local community. So if you’re in Bogotá next week  please join us and our friends at Kudos for GeoBeers at 6 p.m. on Wednesday  August 12 at the BW Buffalo Wings Capital Towers. We’ll chat about maps  web technologies  and all things data; please confirm your attendance here.

And last but not least  we’re excited to announce that Kudos will be launching the new QGISCartoDB plugin during the CartoDB-sponsored GeoBeers. This newest version includes performance improvements for data editing  as well as functionalities like multi-user account management and the ability to publish a QGIS project as a map on CartoDB.

Happy data mapping!
