Lincoln house community center, Heath town, Wolverhampton, WV10 0JB.

Featuring Alex Willmer will give a talk on GPS and GIS. He says,
"Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) are to geography, what CAD is to
engineering. It's revolutionising the field; even whilst itself being
revolutionised by the likes of Google Earth & web mapping. I offer a
tour of the GIS landscape - the whats, the whos & the whys. A vaguely
sciency bit about the workings of GPS, with pictures. Demos of Free/Open
Source GIS & satellite navigation (satnav) software. A rundown of
geospatial data sources, free as in beer and otherwise. Finally a pitch
for OpenStreetMap, a project I'm involved with."
